    65%? How do you figure ?

    Most were two-handed plays, which means a 50-50 chance of being right on your pick. Add to that, the fact that he's a pro player and has the advantage of seeing the hands, it doesn't take an expert to predict what's likely to happen three out of four times.

    Heck, I'm mediocre player and I was getting it right at least 75% of the time!

    For some reason my DVR diddn't record the final table. It recorded the episode before when it went the the final 9, then the next recording I had was of the final 3. Bummer. Even though they showed it a few times, I wish I could have seen Newhouses departure.

    Did enjoy watching the final 3 and was very surprised by Van Hoof's playing, but super impressed with Jacobsons play.

    I knew Stephensen was doomed when they showed that he was being coached by Scott Seiver - that guys a tool.

    From 9 to 3 was on ESPN2. I had that problem a few years ago. I've learned to rely on a wishlist instead of a season pass. Although with the new feature of saying any channel that might not be necessary any more.

    It should be available on demand on ESPN3 and eventually YouTube.

    I think we are probably talking about 2 different things and I think I am the one having the wrong conversation. Sorry.

    If you're playing and you only know your cards, 75% is a huge edge. If you see both players cards, then yeah 75% isn't so hot.

    Yes, but the point is that Antonio was correct 75% of the time (using the previous figure) in knowing what the player would do taking into consideration the player only knew their own hand. Knowing what both players cards were didn't have any effect on what he thought the player would do.

    I presume you mean only via manual recordings, right? Since you can "only" go 3 hours past the official slot.

    I mainly just record the shows that come after it as it's less work than setting up manual recordings. For Monday it was easy since they had a repeat broadcast scheduled. So for Monday I recorded the first WSOP with 1 hour extra. That included a 1 hour of Sportscenter. They then had WSOP repeated. I recorded that. I think that took me to 6 AM. I then recorded Mike and Mike, and each show after that.

    For Tuesday I recorded the WSOP with an hour of padding and then all of the Sportscenter after that.
