I can't speak for Hanson, but I got annoyed as hell listening to Phil say, "Oh Gussy Gussy! Gussy raising under the gun. Gussy came over the top of me!" That and the pretending to sleep at the table the whole time, popping up only to say how great he was got old.

I can't picture Lederer at a Smashing Pumpkins concert.

haha this week is great...
- first chris ferguson REALLY sucks at shuffling chips
- then GUS 3bets every damn pot AND actually has a hand and says to hellmuth "id like to trap but i dont get any big hands"
- Phil hellmuth criticizing Lederer, Ivey and Hansen while playing his donkish style always saying its so sick, i trap them every time and they give all their chips to me... i actually have never seen such a thing when he played against pros... i can remember folding the best hand when playing dolly like 10 times and then calling with A9 vs Seidelīs KK (i think it was seidel) and then sucking out.
He never played good, NEVER...
- i love Hellmuth trying to be more splashy and get raised out of every pot by i.e. ivey...
- i guess lederer cant deal with criticizm, while hellmuth is telling the truth.. the only truth

edit: also love the new and improved ivey, sleep mode and "i might ghave got 15K if u had A5"....

I loved:

1. Hellmuth griping that everybody is always underestimating the strength of his hands, then 10 seconds later open-raising with a 7-5 offsuit.

2. Hellmuth bragging that nobody else at the table is good enough to pull moves like limping in with big pairs. Ivey, who has twice limped in with pocket aces and won pots without showing them, just stares at him with a "You are SUCH a moron" look on his face.

I like Shana's question to Phil : when you close your eyes what do you see?
I think she's one of the few people who understands Phil Hellmuth

Hellmuth is the greatest. Sure, he is the most annoying guy in the world, but you cannot deny his mere presence at a game always jacks up the comedy factor (mainly -- everyone takes veiled cheapshots at him under the guise of good-natured ribbing, and Hellmuth gets his feelings hurt and acts out even more). I love watching games with that guy.

Also - Howard Ledered is equally a douche. Listening to him say he wasn't feeling Jay-Z's last album made me throw up in my mouth a little bit. He's a good commentator for sure, smart player, but save the rapper name-dropping for the next time you're throwing down at a Young Jeezy concert.

Ivey and Hansen are the best. On the degenerate gamblers board of directors, Ivey is the chairman and Hansen is the shady treasuerer who's being investigated by the FBI for embezzling.

If I was producing this show, I'd replace Harman with Matasow and then get rid of Ferguson and replace him with the Australian loud-mouth guy. Then i would pay Lederer 5k under the table to rile up Hellmuth and give hellmuth 5k to make Annie Duke jokes (nobody sucks out like your sister, etc...), and then have Antonio ride in on the Ultimate Bet-sponsored camel.

Ratings bonanza.
