The final table of the WSOP Main Event kicks off in just 2 days. The buildup to this year’s final has been much better than last year. This year, we have perennial pro Phil Ivey making his first Main Event final table and trying to come from behind to win it all. We also have the “next Moneymaker” in Darvin Moon.

I wanted to wait until the money was actually reached before I said anything about Doyle's performance at the WSOP Europe. However, now that they are in the money and he has almost 250,000 in chips, it's time to give him some props. Yes, Doyle is among the greatest of all-time, but it still is amazing to watch that man go as he gets older. I am also glad to see that he is still in the hunt for this title.

All Hail Hellmuth!

" I’ve always liked Phil Helmuth and have defended his tantrums because that is Phil being Phil, but these grand entrances he makes are too much! He came to my table dressed as Julius Caesar along with trumpets and scantily clad girls. It embarrassed me just being there. I would have liked to applied for the role of Brutus. I am a poker purist and stuff like that detracts too much from what a great game poker is.
