It has been a very interesting, and late, night at the 2010 World Series of Poker. Four events were underway tonight, but only half of them completed. Huck Seed won the Tournament of Champions and Daniel Alaei won his 3rd career bracelet. *Tournament of Champions Grind Finally Over* While many pros did their typical "thank you for the opportunity" speech at the end of the event, the one word that stuck out before the final table began was #clusterfuck.

WSOP Commentary - Addressing the Tournament of Champions Voting

A lot of players, fans, and the “poker media” have been giving their thoughts about selections for the Tournament of Champions and how they think that this player or that player has been slighted and that “there aren’t enough younger champions” etc. *Players That Were "Omitted" Had Not Done Enough* First, this is the WSOP Tournament of Champions. Those that argue a player based on their overall accomplishments are missing the boat on the purpose of this game. It is supposed to be an all-start game for WSOP Champions.
