5 bet counted as 5 bet, greek folds to shove, greek and some UK pup 2 satties who have made the final table. Both of whom have locked up 150 k pounds for putting in 90 pounds. GG them.

I actually ended up watching this for a while, was probably the most fun I have had watching a stream.

Rossiter played awesome, I legit felt bad when he lost the flip to the Greek guy.

Greek guy was also pretty killer at the start, about 60 years old and putting in 3bets with air and check/raising turns with King high like a boss. However, there was a hand where it folded to him on the button and he 5x'ed preflop with A9o which made me instantly hate him for some reason (fwiw BB, the eventual champ, woke up with AQ and jammed in what was a great spot to boss the table and put them to difficult decisions based on ICM.

The coverage was great, and Lee Jones (the guy Happy mentioned) I didnt think was too bad from the little bit I heard from him, though he works for PokerStars I think and of course is going to be heavily promoting Stars as well.

The Greek guy did quite a few 5 - 7 X raises with stuff like Q 5 dd etc - was really interesting to watch Rossiter change his game up by limping in when they were SB/BB to keep the pot small, then start to c/r turns with air after he'd floated the flop and been double barrelled by the Bttn Smasher, given Bttn Smashers range there is hugely wide and hugely exploitable to a c/r on almost any board. I too give the Greek guy props - he really went against his "old guy" image and that's clearly the reason he was at that final table.

The reason I really didn't like Lee Jones was because I'd watched the coverage on most days from day one, so I heard the same stuff day after day - in the end it just really got on my nerves as he was just irritating to my ears - I find him to be too oily and sanctimonious - he pulled Stapes into line a couple of times for Stapes being Stapes in the time I heard him broadcast.

Rossiter won a massive all in earlier in the tournament with a set of 88s vs an overpair and I think two overs AIPF to put him in the chip lead, so he did have his share of luck in the tournament, but at that final table just couldn't buy a card. There was one hand I thought he played phenomenally well where he'd flopped a set of 6s got floated by Greek guys Broadway gutter which came in on the turn. Rossiter, who up until then had been acting really quickly, tanked for about 40 seconds as he must have just picked up that the Greek guy had something, even though Rossiter was OOP and first to act on the turn, he then only lost min as I said in a post above.

They had this competition where they got people to pick a movie title and change it so that it was poker related, then send it in to the EPT live twitter account for them to read out on air. I sent in: "The fabulous Hawbaker Boys" (after the movie the Fabulous Baker Boys) - Brandi Hawbaker was this good looking woman who screwed her way through half the poker community in the US (including Gus Hansen, David Skalnsky and current November 9er Mark Newhouse and many others) then committed suicide. For some reason they chose not to read it out. :D

66 hand I had assumed he was check/raising turn for sure but probably just felt he got just as much money from bluff on the turn and river then he did from hands that could call a raise. I think if spades dont come in on the river he check/shoves for sure though.

LOL'd at the Hawbaker comments, that actually is a pretty funny thread to read.

I've not heard his commentary but have heard him interviewed a handful of times, and he's always a good listen.

not sure why, but i have been watching the EPT stream for the last few hours. Might finally get a 2-time EPT champion, long odds that the first one could be Vicky Coren. She just crushed the former CL 3-betting pre AT OOP against QT, flop TT2, she x-r flop, c-c turn, b-c river after a semi-long nit roll wondering if he might have 22.

Played with Jordan a bit and really nice guy, glad he had a good score.

I am terrible sweating EPTs when Aussies (or honorary Aussies in this case) are going deep.

well at least she didn't knock out the Aussie HU this time. 2006 seems so long ago.

Daniel Colman is featured on the FT of the EPT hi roller, a name many are unfamiliar with but pretty much already a bona fide online legend. Super talented player, and can be watched on the live stream from Pokerstars TV starting around now.

50 unique entries for the SHR with 12 rebuys. Possibly the most unique entries for a SHR.

AM 2014 SHR was 47+29. But given relative exchange rates, the EPT SHR is paying about 40% more ftw
