I have just stumbled across this thread and what a great read it is.

I have been contemplating whether or not to stump up the £1060 for todays event at DTD because I wasn't quite in the mood but this has sorted me out 100%

I genuinely wasn't sure whether to play today but this has given me just a little bit of inspiration and the kick up the backside I needed.

Let's hope it gives me a little bit of luck too.

Off to DTD for the main event it is then.

Cheers for the read Rob.

The very last hand of the night goes to Dewi James, who finds ACES and talks Raymond O’Mahoney into calling his all-in preflop bet of 15k.  “If I had AQ, I’d call!” says Dewi.  Raymond calls holding pocket 66’s.

For someone that has grown up in the new world. A world where poker is mainstream, thousands of ME players are commonplace, where pro's are mentioned as legends far less frequently than they should be and the fact that the online generation has made its impact loud and clear...This has to be the best read ive had on the topic of poker in my entire life. Literally, i cant think of anything more eye opening than this.

Laptops with wireless being amazing? Structures that most people would scoff at. The WPT being considered far better than the WSOP. Names winning bracelets that have now been etched into history (Chan's 10th and PH-JR only having 9 hit home just how long ago this is)...it goes to show how lucky we are to play this game today, and the humble beginnings that the game came from...the fact that its gone from a seedy back room game to this thousands+ spectacle to the global brand it is today...did players 8 years ago ever think poker would be considered a sport? no. And while not completely accepted as one, its these days that got us there.

Even the small stuff that i've grown to consider the norm...the £100 rebuy in gala, the fact that dusk was nowhere to be seen at this point, heck Tighty not being an admin! its the little things that, when you think about it, make someone like me realise just how long ago this was...and ive gotta say its nice to see the names from then survive to today.

My generation owes this game, this sport, this spectacle to the old days...to the roots with which it was raised. My generation owes its very existence in this game and alot of people owe their careers and life earnings to something that, even ten years ago, was considered a seedy back-room game predominately played by card sharks, degen gamblers and generic crooks....sure we still have that today, but look where its come!


I thank you rob, heck all of you, for being able to read this and, even if only slightly, to relive the days that made the game what it is today...Alot of the younger kids don't and probably never will appreciate just what things were like at the top and bottom end of the game 8/10 years ago. Next time we play a tournament and bemoan little details, or rage about insignificant events in our careers...ill look back on this and cherish what we have, and where this game is now, its thanks to you guys, even if only slightly, that it happened...

Wouldn't have it any other way.
