Week Ten/Eleven - November 6-7 & 13-14

(C-Note: As always, what follows are televised-hand-by-televised-hand accounts.  Obviously, since it's only an hour show, most hands are not televised so you're going to see a lot of jumping of the dealer button. For more information on this and other poker precepts, visit Chris Wolvie's Poker Primer. In the meantime, here's Robert!)

Week 10: Players from tournaments past are playing here with some newbies as well.

Joining Chad Brown this week is the 2004 WSOP Player of the Year, David Negranu (BTW, during the taping between breaks, he was eating lunch made by his mom. That is his signature trademark)

Trip to the Bahamas on the line for the winner.

Hand 1: Kal goes all in with 7-7, Max goes all in with A-K, A-2-A on the flop, 5 on the turn and a Q on the river sends Kal out in style. (That's what Negranu said)

Hand 2: Tony raises to $800 with 6-7 Diamonds, Paul raises to $1,800 with A-Q, Tony calls. Q-5-5 on the flop, 9 on the turn, 3 on the river, Tony bets $1,600, Paul calls and wins the pot.

Hand 16: Tony Calls with A-8, Joe goes all in with K-Q, Tony is now all in. 7-J-3 on the flop, 9 on the turn and a miracle Q on the river makes Joe Toth the Winner.

Joe joins the rest of the winners in the semis With a Trip to the Bahamas and a DVD Player.

Week 11 gives us maybe the worst idea so Far for any TV competition show. They recap the Last 10 shows, but they also do a Tournament. Most of the show is dedicated to the recapping of the last 10 weeks and the Winners. Most of the play was edited out from the tourney going on. All I can tell you is that some guy named Michael is the winner, he gets the trip to the Bahamas and a DVD Recorder. Basically I am disgusted that they pulled a stunt like this. If you are going to do a recap, Wait until 13 weeks are done, then recap. Also, Make sure that there is no Tournament going on that day. Or better yet, since I know that these are taped in advance, Just insert the recap show and then next week continue with the tourneys.

Well they had to do something bad sometime or later. Anyways, For Chad, Daniel, and Brandi Williams, I'm Robert W. Seidelman saying, Well I don't know what to say, Peace.
