I think they were all 10K. I give credit to the guy who did the R&R fool's wave back at him.

We can only hope he gets thumped by someone here. I avoided reading the circuit results after they happened to try to make this a little more interesting, anyway....

another horrible hold'em fold'em commercial.

Why not spend 10 seconds explaining the action before the river?

I actually think this has been a really good episode. Chambers' all in against Antonio with the jack and the three spades on the flop was fairly rocks and rings.

This was the worst episode ESPN has ever showed, IMO. They should throw it away and never rerun it.

The only thing I didn't like about this episode was the first guy who went out. They showed two hands with him, one where he checked the AAx flop with KK and folded to a bet from the guy with QQ. Doesn't matter that I could see the hands, it was a bad play. Also, the camera showed him shaking his head when the QQ guy bet. Someone should tell him that he's not playing on the internet.

Then the next hand he decided to go all-in with JJ when Antonio bets on the A T x board. Terrible play, and a good call from Antonio. I guess he was trying to fold KK/QQ/AJ/AQ/AK , but he didn't have to go all-in to do that! I was happy to see him get busted out. He deserved it for being a donkey.

I find that these 1 hr episodes are a bit short and heavily edited, but I can't complain. It's entertaining and nice to see events televised other than the ME

i've played a good bit with chambers live NL, i had forgotten one thing about him... i like the way he acts at the table. not the typical WPT watching douche bag.

and this episode was edited sooooo bad, took away a lot. i knew a lot of things were cut that would have made the show better only because i paid such close attention to it knowing who he was and New Orleans being my most frequented casino... for instance.. the 92h hand... they cut to the end of the hand, and left out this juice...
UTG OPEN WITH 92h.... SAY WHAT???? HOW CAN YOU EDIT THAT OUT??

Title: Nick Mao Eliminated in 4th Place ($172,235)
Log: Hand 153 - Mao has the button in seat 2, Chambers raises to $25,000, Mao calls, Esfandiari calls, and Bierria calls. All four players see a flop of Jh-7h-6h, and everyone checks to Mao, who pushes all in. Chambers quickly calls with a nine-high flush (9h-2h), while Mao shows 7c-6c for two pair. Mao needs to catch a six or a seven to stay alive (four outs). The turn card is the 8h, and the river is the Ks, and Nick Mao is eliminated in fourth place, earning $172,235.


Chambers increases his chip lead even further. The next player eliminated will receive $221,445 for third place.


Also, this is going solely on what i was told and can partially tell during the episode, when Rocks&Rings gets his ass busted, he slammed his KK down on this table like he finally got Chambers, and Chambers threw his Aces right over them... i would have liked to see this in it's entirety

WTF, now they don't even show full hands.

They come back from a commercial break TWICE and they show a hand already down to the turn and someone is all in on both hands. That's just as exciting to watch as those stupid ass MB commercials with Jesus in the fridge.

ESPN's poker coverage is definitely getting worse. Maybe poker really is getting ready to jump the shark.
