    Just heard Bakers comments on the pause. CLEARLY he was taking a shot @ Druff in some way saying "we limit hold em players just play, none of this hollywood crap" but if it was his buddy from commerce who paused for a slight few seconds then he would have been the first to in there saying how great and how composed the kid is by not giving away anything. I know what he means as far as hands playing themselves because most do in LHE at the top levels but a 3 sec pause didn't warrant the comments he gave IMO.

    Just watched the thing now & agree this Baker fag had it in for Druff. But you know what tilted me even more was how Baker was always raving about that twink kid. Made it sound like he wanted to take the guy up to his room after the event was over. I mean yeah David we get it, you have friends from Commerce but try to at least pretend you arent in the booth just to suck off your buddies & bash the guy you dont like. Cant comment on the strategy part cuz I know little about limit but if anything druff acted the fastest at the table and to go off on him for stalling is weak.

    Oh and druff good job. Yeah you didnt win and im sure u are disappointed but remember you made a final table at a really hard event & you barely played anything so far, & you know someone else who can only seem to cash at all american daves.

    That's one thing I forgot in my post above. I watched for about an hr or 2 and thought Baker was very solid with breaking down the hands etc...

    They justified this a few times by saying pros can take such criticism, but it came off as petty after a while.

    Something people might or might not know is Jared Hamby who won the $1500 NL event today and was mentioned on radio tonight his girlfriend is Lizzy Harrison. I'm not sure how long they've been together but it's been a little while I believe.

    Lizzy went deep in the Millionaire Maker this year too. I forget what place she got but it was somewhere in the Top 100 I believe.

    Hamby ran REALLY well in the HU portion.

    With Q3o vs 910o, and a flop of Q 9 10, a few raises later, and a shove by Hamby. turn 2, river 2. Hamby would have been out, but ended up moving into the chip lead. A race at the end where he caught on the turn secured the win.

    Lizzy recently got divorced, too.

    I don't think it was related to Jared.

    No, I'm leveling you and if you can't figure out what I meant then I'm not going to explain it to you except I will say go read your own post again.

    I'm not sure how long they will keep this on the site but probably for a couple weeks or so since all the events from June 1st onward are still available to stream.
    I tried watching this but once i figured out they tell you how much your allowed to bet i couldnt take it anymore.

    David Bakes Baker (not the commentator) is at the FT of the 10k 2-7 which is his 4th final table of the Series.

    He has 2 bracelets.

    Tough but fair.

    You left out her pointy elbows.
    imo she's trying to hide them.

    I don't know if other people noticed it or not as well but I think Tuckman was doing a pretty good job at trying to do damage control on that situation. He was constantly defending Todd's pauses and other plays.
    I noticed that, too.

    I first saw this come up in the hand where I had As2s against Ben Yu's AQ.

    Flop came JcTc8c which was about as bad as possible for my hand. (Seriously, can you think of worse?)

    So obviously there was nothing to think about, but does that mean I have to snap-fold and give away info about my holdings and range from that position?

    No. I would be an idiot to do that, especially at a final table.

    So I took a few seconds to act like I was thinking, and then threw it away.

    If I stalled for 60 seconds with this fake decision, Baker would have a point. That's excessive, and it's just slowing down the game. However, taking 5-10 seconds occasionally for a "fake think" regarding a fold is not going to cause any significant delay in play.

    The snide "classic Witteles" comment about this was both obnoxious and incorrect. I am not known for unreasonable stalling or slow play either live or online, so I don't know what was "classic" about this harmless move that wasted a whole 5 seconds.
    david ''old'' baker comes across as a douche with a chip on his shoulder, especially after ppl consistently congratulate him on his recent successes

    ''sorry, thats not me, thats the other baker''


    one can tell from his recent interviews that he is somewhat irritated at being confused with the younger and more accomplished baker


    btw jeff lissandro channeling tony soprano in the 2-7 draw lowball event

    That is why they call it limit.

    Do you think the tourneys right now will be a lot easier / less people in general?

    $3k no limit ends today
    $1500 ante only goes until tomorrow
    $3000 PLO h/l goes until tomorrow
    $111,111 one drop started mid day today
    $2500 limit 6 handed starts 5pm today
    $1500 NL starts tomorrow
    $2500 10 game starts tomorrow

    I would think a lot of the big boys are either deep in tourneys or playing the one drop? So tourneys like 2500 limit/1500 NL/2500 10 game would possibly be less filled with pros?
