WSOP Main Event

The Main Event is the biggest draw in poker and that is especially true at this years World Series of Poker. With over 8,000 entrants into the Main Event it has become a spectacle and everyone wants to win the coveted bracelet. The only question I wonder is that whether or not it is good for the game of poker to have so many no name guys moving on, while the big time players continue to be left by the wayside. I know that like all major attractions people want to see the big names battling with each other and unfortunately at this year's WSOP Main Event there are hardly any names on the final 27 that you will recognize. Is this good or bad for poker? I would like to watch a final table of the known personalities and the best players in the world. Unfortunately this tournament does not tell you who the best player in the World truly is and that is what the Main Event should clarify.

The World Series of Poker always has a few stories that come out of it and this years is no different. The latest bickering is coming from two poker stars in Daniel Negreanu and Greg Raymer. Greg Raymer called out Negreanu for his part with the WPT and then Negreanu fired right back by telling Raymer to "go breast feed some hungry children in Africa". There is always going to be some hostility when you put two big time ego's up against each other but let's solve this at the tables. I would rather enjoy seeing the two of these guys going up in a heads up battle and then they can talk all the trash they want. Now keep in mind this is not going to be a Matusow versus Hellmuth rant that's for sure but it would be entertaining nonetheless. I personally think Raymer would take down Negreanu in a heads up battle and as well in a street fight. These guys should set up a poker "I quit" match. Love to see it.

Today the World Series of Poker's main event will play down the final twenty seven players until they reach the final table. It should make for an interesting day. Stay tuned to this PokerParty.
