    They dont play the final table til November which is silly. I couldnt take it man. You'd be at a final table for the bracelet, and have to wait 4 months. What happens if someone dies before then?

    You wouldnt think this, but there are some gorgeous high limit female poker players. I'll concede cheer leading as a sport, as long as I can get poker as a sport.

    Sure, its not an athletic competition, but it is on ESPN, and it could be the first ever sport that you can participate and drink beer at the same time.

    I've played in a large poker tournament that's lasted multiple days and I don't know if I could bring myself to do it again. Sure, you get in the zone, and lose all track of time.

    When I played at the bellagio last year, it had felt like I had just run a marathon. I've been physically exausted before, but after this tournament, I was physically and mentally exausted. I got back to my room at 7pm that night, and passed out immediately.

    Sure, you may just be sitting there in a chair... But keeping a straight face and controlling your emotions takes more of a physical toll on your body than you would think. You have to have ICE running through your vains to play for high stakes. I got lucky and won a satellite in, but when there is millions on the line, you constantly have this "Walking on egg shells"/Semi sick feeling when someone raises you and you know they have the goods.
