Any WSOP event?

I'd be shocked if Matusow didn't make another one.

Hachem has already made another WSOP final table (Las Vegas circuit event).

Re: doug lee is gooot!

What's not true?

And I'm not sure I understand what the similar play would be later. Are you saying he risked 20% of his stack on that call to set up his image as a calling station so that...

Re: doug lee is gooot!

I wasn't necessarily questioning the call. I was questioning your characterization of it as "aggressive."

As far as the call, where do you get 5-1? Given the levels of the blinds and antes, it...
