It's 3.30 AM on a Thursday night and I refuse to go to bed because ESPN is showing 4 hours of the 2007 World Series of Poker. This stuff is nerve raking!!!
Can you imagine playing at a table of nine for the chance to win over 8 million clams with pots of 72 mil??!! And these guys are going all-in like it's a $10 buy-in with some chumps from work. Jerry Lang is a BEAST btw!!!
The best part was seeing Rahme's wife who held her head in her hands on the verge of tears when the odds were against her husband. I wish I were there so i could shake the piss out of her and ask, "WHAT THE HELL IS YOUR PROBLEM, LADY!?!?!?" the very least he can walk away with is 3 million bucks! DAFFY, I tell you!
THEN I hear that the winners are donating a large chunk of their winnings to charity. Now I wonder, why put yourself through that if not for the money. Is it pride? The honor of being number 1? Daffy.
The highlight of these past 4 hours came in the last 2 minutes. As Lang celebrated his win the camera panned to Lam who was still getting over the shock of losing on the river. Just then the commentator brought sickening clarity to the situation when he uttered, "And there's one unhappy multi-millionaire."
