Surely the best players on this site are a LOT better than most (if not ALL) of the "name" tv pros out there...

Do you think most of the name tv pros are BETTER than some of the best in HSNL?

I'm not trying to sound like a low post-count jocksniffing fanboy railtard talking about how great CTS, Aba, and others are. I'm just saying that for the millions of hands they've played, they probably have a better technical understanding of the game than most of the better known tv pros.

That's pretty crazy indeed, then... seeing as he went on to win it.

Maybe I need to edit the title to When will a 2p2er win ANOTHER WSOPME.

Raymer even credited 2+2 for his WSOP win.

thought he had a trip report here in 99 of flying out to Vegas for the first time and playing his first tourneys out there including some $1500 buy-in event at the Orleans or something. He had played tourneys at foxwoods but not in LV.

I think he had concluded that with the juice, airfare and hotel costs they weren't worth it.

We had a big Sweat Fossilman thread while it was going on in 2004 and I remember thinking how neat it was that he was chip-leader after day 2 or whatever.

He was supposed to write a book about it for 2+2 but never got around to it. Then when he finished 30th in 2005 it looked like he would have even more material and the book project was still in the works.

Still waiting....

Aba, Jman, CTS (to an extent) are HU cash specialists there is zero chance they will win the WSOP in their lifetime because of the way it is set up like a lottery and frankly iirc Aba said he was bored during the WSOP halfway through the day 1 he was assigned.

But at least you tried not to sound like a jockstrap sniffing fanboy.

I heard Jamie Gold posts under the alias "Grimstarr" on 2+2. Not sure if it is true though.
