I agree with TheDelta on his perception. Yang's play is more planned than you would at first surmise, it is imperative to throw off your competition, especially if they are skilled. Oversized raises, taking your time, praising the Lord, all three were functional behaviors--exceptionally effective. He took a page from Gold's playbook, and although I have seen neither final tables yet; I am also in the minority camp, as I respect Gold for what he did, albeit with surprise that he wasn't just penalized into obscurity.I just got an email from a buddy (confirmed he wore a loud pink shirt, two rows directly behind Tuan, waving a Canadian flag) whose buddy is buddies with Tuan; they all flew down to LV to rail him when he qualified for the FT.My buddy said Tuan, "HONESTLY didn't catch ANY cards ALL FT long 'except the two big hands' to keep him alive."
In light of this, Tuan played a tremendous FT, only to be superseded by Yang if Jerry's cards turn out to be even worse.Then we will all confirm that:Tuan Lam = Class Act, fantastic player
andJerry Yang = Class Act, fantastic player
Wow, I now know someone remotely that's won more than I ever will, for a few years... awesome... I smell stakeaments!
