To me, Guy is not the fish. He's just not good enough for this level..he makes good plays, but also mistakes, however he doesn't pretend to be anything more than he is.

dumb question. are they in the same seats for each day of the season? so basically the same for 4 or so episodes, or do they switch every episode?

Man I wish you guys would quit spoiling next week. I wait until I watch this week to read this thread, but personally I'd rather not be spoiled for next week.

Come on barryg1, what did you fold preflop in the Brunson v. Guy hand?? AJ maybe? small 2pr hand?

[/ QUOTE ]

I had Ace-Deuce of Spades. If the pot stayed small until the turn, which it would have without Doyle getting steamed up, I may have been forced to go all-in on the turn with my Aces up. I think I only had about 250k when the hand started.

As it played out, I thought Doyle had Ace-King and I thought Guy had him beat. Doyle wouldn't have called Guy's raise without the flush draw, but he might not have made a bet that gets him potstuck without it either.

When I said that Jamie lost the minimum to my quads, I wasn't just saying it to make Jamie feel good. I was seriously sick about it. I had no cards to this point and I finally had a chance to win a big pot.

My only big preflop hand comes after this. (I assume this will be shown on one of the upcoming episodes.) I had Kings. It happpened a long time ago, but I think the action goes like this: Someone raises in and I made it 10k and Antonio makes it 50k. This may be the first hand Antonio had played since four hours earlier when he flopped the set of Aces against me. I had between 250k and 300k at the start of the hand.

wow 4 hours, that doesn't even sound like an exaggeration either. Why is Antonio playing so tight, I thought he was a loose-aggressive player or is that just tournament?

the hand is in next episode, lots of limps, Barry makes the "Barry play" with a real hand to 24k, Antonio pops it to 73k, thinking it's one of these plays.

Is it just me, or do you get the feeling Doyle doesn't care a whole bunch for Jamie?

[/ QUOTE ]

I've had that impression a bit and I thought he might be someone that doesn't appreciate the theatrics that Gold brings to the table. I also suspect he doesn't really respect Gold's game.



[/ QUOTE ]

I think he doesn't respect his game for the most part, and finds him pretty beatable in most cases.

Jamie is not a good player. Heck he even straight up told Sammy he had NOTHING but Sammy was too busy rattling his rocks around to notice.

I really was hoping for a Jamie bust before he left.
