Is it rigged?

No, but if you try and bluff him it will seem that way.

That's why one should love ZH as they have their hands in everything. No need to check any other blog or even TV show. Kudos

Einhorn is 3rd! And he's giving it all to charity. Us goldbugs are smart and good...

Einhorn. 4.3 million to charity. All you Jill Sommers, Blythe Masters Jamie's and Lloyds. You are despicable criminals. Men like Einhorn beat you fair though you are unfair, and he punts 4 million to charity to boot. You are freedom hating, America-thwarting trolls. You belong with all the Bernie Madoffs and dictators of history and furthering their diabolical project of poverty, famine and evil. You all suck!!

So this access business, wherein one needs to specify a provider that [presumably can reverse charge you for accessing] provides rights... this is a US-only thing, or is it just another thing that US "service providers" [gag-choke] use to pretend that they are in fact providing a service that the rest of the world proivdes for free and with less hastle...  ?

Yes, Nage..., it's the new American way. All of our business leaders and elected officials practice this method. It's an art form really.

I'll be impressed when he goes ALLIN with "2" "7" off suited & wins the hand instead of just sitting there looking stupid with swirly x-ray specs that he got from trading in Bazooka Joe comics in the hopes of seeing Jennifer Tilly's dairies...

He's a grinder in everything he does. He will do his homework on a short, turn over every stone, and then patiently wait--years sometimes--for the criminals within the company to be revealed.

what bothers me the most is that so many young kids are into poker over here and where half of them are very deep in debt because of it.
We even had to put a ban on it at work for playing during and after workhours with collegues because of all the problems it gave.
Gambling isn't a sport and it shouldn't be gloryfied.

I agree - they should be spending far more time gaining an education and learning to spell.

Words like "glorified", for example.

I've just been told about Einhorn's refusal to show his hole cards on the broadcast. It'll be interesting to see how that resolves itself.

There is a fishy looking lump in his jacket.  I think he is hiding a radio receiver or something in there.

The big question is whether Barclays are deciding the order of the deck?   

 

"Could I possibly have the 5 of clubs somewhere near the top of the pack if possible please guv'nor?"

"Done, for you big boy"

Low man Baldwin just filled a straight to the inside on the river after going all-in and beating 2 pair. Can I get a witness? You gotta love this game!

Perhaps the river is decided by a 'contributor panel'?

Have his chips been rehypothecated?  Is Jamie Dimon "holding" them for the casino?  Just don't want to see his winnings Corzined, like 40,000 MF Global customers.

Speaking of the WSOP,

"It will either go down as the greatest fold in poker history, or the worst tournament blunder of all time.  It all depends on who you ask and what you believe."

Its just a bunch of BS, if you play enough, you will get lucky and win someday. I am not a gambler, but on a lucky night I can beat just about anyone if the cards fall, as they can sometimes...

It's all a bunch of bull****

oligarchy sleight of hand; get the publicity and soothe your own hubris. Its win-win and you have a one in five chance of getting your million dollar bet back. Not bad if you like poker. Business and pleasure. A multi billionaire and 1 million?...its just good publicity.

the greatest thing about the hand for the championship was the call by the announcer, hitting spot on by deducing and calling  the jacks vs a diamond flush draw, completing his spot on call of the whole final hand. great job dude!

if you watch it again, or when it pops up again on espn, keep an eye out for it. it is the best call by an announcer i have ever seen.
