Took 'Em Long Enough

Well, we finally got a winner in the WSOP big event. You can get the play by play at Poker Wire and Tao of Poker for the "there I was" feeling.

I sort of lost interest once everyone I was pulling for was knocked out, the last being Phil Ivey who came in 20th (only $300,000 - poor guy) and then the only other names I recognized were gone early from the final table. I will be interested to see it when it is broadcast, and I believe ESPN will be showing some of it on Tuesday - then the whole edited deal in October.

Congrats to Lebanese/Australian Joseph Hachem! Not a bad payoff for 6 days of card playin'
