If you're wondering, Phil Hellmuth is over in England along with Tony G and Kenna James playing a made-for-TV event called Premier League Poker.I'd post a link over to Poker News who are doing the live reporting but I don't wanna be accused of spamming again.Just seen the diamonds bracket. The producers may go for Don Cheadle versus Phil Ivey or Gabe Kaplan versus Todd Brunson instead (the celebrity vs poker superstar angle).Isabelle Mercier has the online qualiifer!? OOOH!

Doyle Brunson, and Mike Sexton, are they there too?Is it just me or does this seem like a much weaker field than in the past.

I thought FOR SURE Robert Varkonyi would be the top seed in the tournament... people don't understand what he has done for the game of poker. They just toss him aside like he is nothing...

Apparently Doyle was in London for some $100k SNG along with Phil Ivey, Phil Hellmuth and a few others for a British bookmaker. Mike Sexton's in Los Angeles for the WPT event but his reasons for withdrawing are seemingly unknown (well I dunno why he hasn't bothered).If any bookies are going to bother covering this, unfortunately the odds will almost definitely be poor because they're scared. You can easily overestimate/underestimate somebody and some lucky mofo is going to hit a nice score because of that.

I'm waiting for the blog about having Mike in the opening round match... should be good. Then again he might keep his game plan secret, theres nothing really to hide b/c they've played so much together but...meh.

Because Ivey is not 130 years old... Old people get tired you know.

That really sucks Hellmuth isn't playing. I have been looking forward to watching him in this for a year. This seems like about the last event he would miss.Those odds are horrible. There are 64 players and 62 of them are less than 60 to 1! I guarantee the two qualifiers at the bottom aren't that much more unlikely to win then everyone else. I don't think Shannon Elizabeth is almost twice as good as someone who beat out thousands of people online to qualify.

Hellmuth's contracted to do a made-for-TV poker event over in the United Kingdom and he's crushing it (4 out of 5 wins so far!) thus he's sticking around for the final.Ah feck it, I'll post the link: http://uk.pokernews....live-reporting/If he could have, one assumes Hellmuth would have loved to have had a third go at the Heads Up event.
