15 min levels are not bad heads-up.

Cheadle didn't look that bad during the Equalizer thing. It only takes one good hand at the right time.

The blinds for the first round were 100/200, 200/400, 400/800, 600/1200, 800/1600, 1000/2000, then I presume the 1500/3000 cap.

15 minute rounds in heads up, there's enough play all things considered. Most of the matches were done under an hour.

20 mins per level, and best 2 out of 3 each match would be more of a true test. Doubling the blinds each round speeds it up a bit too, so adding a few levels... w/e its all for TV anyways.

if you look at cheadle's pokerwire post ivey interview. he obviously understands poker. he basically said that his strategy was to play super agressive. he moved in preflop with most hands he intended to play and just hoped to not run into any big hands. pretty smart. he knows he can't outplay him post flop, so just play super aggro pre. works fine with a structure that moves so fast.

Yeah, I wouldn't be surprised. If Ivey stumped up $20,000 though and it wasn't a freeroll (I assume that's what an invite means) Phil would probably care a heck of a lot more.

Hmmm. 'Meta game' also an excuse for the likes of Patrik Antonius and David Benyamine?

Well, Ivey ain't gonna be having too many takers wanting to play him in a golf match so he's gotta find the fish somewhere! HAHA!! [img]/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

No. It is a $25,000 dollar buyin. You do have to be invited to buyin though because no one wants to watch a bunch of nobodies play.

Whoopsie daisy! Typo!

Do the celebrities buy in for $25,000 though? One has to assume they don't.

I was talking about this with a good pro today. He said 75, I said 60, assuming Cheadle is decent-to-good.

HU SNGs have likely the lowest possible ROI of any tournaments, period. Don Cheadle > Phil Ivey maybe 25 or 30 times out of 100, no joke. Of course, if there were no blind increases, that's a differnet story.

Shannon Elizabeth > Barry is a different story... lol

cheadle is the man.
ivey vs cheadle. ivey is prob a 58 or 59% favorite in one of these things. i bet cheadle is pretty sharp.
