They did change the SHR Poker Showdown to $5 million - https://www.pokernews.com/news/2014/04/eric-afriat-denies-mukul-pahuja-at-2014-wpt-seminole-18053.htm.

Did they truly skip Hellmuth? If they did, I can assure you it wasn't because of backing, or else they would've omitted the winner as well.

@RichardS Because the state of Massachusetts only granted one casino in the "Greater Boston area." I guess citizens feel threatened by multiple properties.

Because the WSOP doesn't want to fully bankrupt the poker community and they also want the "businessman" to feel like they have a legitimate shot at a bracelet.

That's interesting that you think Jay is really introverted - he's one of the goofiest players I interact with, haha. I almost didn't even want to include him on the list because he's so far up the food chain already.

I've been informed the following:

"Kitai was given double credit for his score (actually, this is the case for all the players that cashes in the Paris Open of Poker Gold Championship) ... the event results were entered twice in THM ... it was noticed pretty quickly but not in time for last week's scheduled stats run ... so, when the error was corrected, the points were removed and all is good again in the world."

You're 100 percent correct. Bad omission on my part.

@PANTTERAA Frist wanted to be President. He thought uber-conservatives and casino moguls alike would assist him if he passed UIGEA. He was wrong.

If he is publicly selling shares, those count against his potential losses, but this is a very salient point nonetheless, sir!

The side with the number is the side I'm on.

Looks like "J's iPhone"

Thanks, flintsword. That means a lot.

No one has ever won back-to-back WPTs.

The Nevada legislature disagrees, sir:

"Eviction of disorderly persons. Every owner or keeper of any hotel, inn, motel, motor court, or boardinghouse or lodging house in this State shall have the right to evict from such premises anyone who acts in a disorderly manner, or who destroys the property of any such owner or keeper, or who causes a public disturbance in or upon such premises."

What has Lederer done on property?

Thanks, Keith!

Thanks, celebrity. Minor mixup.

Ahem, flintsword Smile

@minumees I was just being descriptive?

After filing the article I realized how obvious PA was. Great point, idun!

Great point, DP.
