Default Raymer

WE all know how he finished and what a feat it was(at least I think, some may not) but he seems too be playing very well (from what they show)

Getting AA when somebody else has KK is not playing good. Flopping 2-pair with J9 when somebody else has KK is not playing good.

But, he is taking in a lot of chips from his opponents' bad beats and bat situations.

checkraising the flop with 2pr but then checking the turn when he fills up was not the best way to take the most chips from KK either.

Sammy Farha is playing even better than Raymer.

The guy who played AA against his 22 played them miserably. He probably goes aruond and talks about his "bad beat" against Raymer.

No WAY AA should let 22 see every card free or cheap.

Yeah...Norman Chad constantly taking Raymer's quote about how he was "1 in 1500" to win and upping the numbers each time he got extremely lucky was certainly fitting. I was thinking the same.

But I agree that Farha was playing way better. He looked so relaxed and collected, it was amazing to watch him play. Although he certainly got set up PERFECTLY on the first hand...

Farhah played good with cards, but from what they showed, Negranau(sp?) played just about perfectly in my amateur opinion.

Come on now, you are smart enough to know that there are lots more hands than shown on TV. They couldn't make Raymer look like any more of a luckbox than they did though.

Yes, calling a 20x the BB raise with 33 and playing 93 s00ted on the button are great plays.
