Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-09-11  SamAtoms1980: Four dropped decisions here in the <> database over the board, and oh, this close \\ to one gigantic triumph in Vegas.

Still a dazzling payday for reaching the heads-up stage of the WSOP.

Nov-09-11  Ezzy: Yes, a cool $5,000,000 for runner up.

Congrats to him.

Nov-10-11  Shams: What was the hand that put him out?
Nov-10-11  King Death: <Shams> Pius Heinz showed As Kc against Staszko's Tc 7c, and the board went: 5c 2d 9s Jh 4d.
