The 2011 WSOP Main Event Will Be Won by a PokerStars Player

I have noticed an interesting, but odd trend at the WSOP Main Event Final Table.  Since 2003, 6 of the 8 Main Event Champions were PokerStars players / patched by PokerStars.   While it is true that PokerStars sends more Main Event players than any other site, you would think that there would have been more than 1 Main Event Champ from Full Tilt in the last 8 years. The only two Main Event winners since 2003 that were not with PokerStars were Jerry Yang and Jamie Gold.

eBay Removes Eskimo Clark's 1999 WSOP Bracelet After Auction Closes

Eskimo Clark
As most of you know, Eskimo Clark's 1999 WSOP bracelet recently sold for $4,050 on eBay. Those that follow my blog and Twitter also know that I was one of the bidders on the bracelet and stopped pursuing it after the bidding exceeded $4,000. Granted, had I known that $4,100 would have won the item, I may have bid again. In the end, it looks like it may have been a good thing I didn't win it as eBay sent me a notice today stating that the item was REMOVED from eBay.

So, what's the worst bad beat you've ever taken in poker? Did you get your full house beat by another full house? Perhaps you got your full house cracked by quads? Well, at the PartyPoker World Open this year, Andrew Robl had his quads cracked by. wait for it.

My November Nine Predictions Revisited

Jonathan Duhamel Main Event Champion 430x296
A couple of days prior to the Main Event, I made four predictions regarding the November Nine final table. I watched the event Saturday and Monday and even last night on ESPN. It was a very entertaining final table leading up to heads-up play. Heads-up, not so much.
