Anybody else watching this 3 handed battle in the WSOP? 8 hours without a KO, insanity.


You might be a king or a little street sweeper, but sooner or later you'll dance with the reaper.

Yeah, it's crazy isn't it, would it be a record for the longest WSOP final table ever?

Got to be. Definitely shattered the most hands while 3-handed mark. What are we at, 10+ hours now without a knockout?

And Greg Merson takes it down!

Not the finish I expected after the great build up but good to watch all the same.

I had a few power naps in between all the action but was able to catch quite a bit of it. It was cool to see such a grind at the biggest stage.

I found the 3-way poker was solid, but once they got HU Jesse Sylvia seemed a bit out matched (or just fried brain from massive session). Impressive final day for all 3 gentlemen.

Also agree with KidPoker when he said Balsinger's quirky personality made him seem like a young Allen Cunningham. Talk about a great player to be compared to!

Fun stuff.

Was a great battle.

Props to my fellow Marylander Greg Merson on taking it down.

Double props for rocking the O's gear on the FT.


LOL at the new avvy Sean. Good one.
