Atlanta's Arieh Featured Tonight

Joshchops_1_1ESPN airs more new WSOP final tables tonight.  One of the final tables you probably won't care much about.  The other will be highly entertaining.  See if you can figure it out:

Option 1 at 9pm EST: The $2,000 Pot Limit Hold'em event won by Edward Moncada (banking $298,070).  Freddie Deeb and Marco Traniello are also involved.   

Option 2 at 10pm EST: The $2,000 Pot Limit Omaha (w/ re-buys) event won by the always polarizing Josh Arieh (banking $381,600 ).  Chris "Jesus" Ferguson came in second.  Max Pescatori and Erik Seidel are also involved. 

Yes, those who think Option 2 will make "better TV" are probably right.  And with with two pot-limit events in the docket, you might get to see some real play as opposed to just a bunch of pre-flop all-ins that ESPN is growing increasingly fond of force-feeding us.

kills me too. plus they should always say what the blinds are..."comes out and bets 18,000" means nothing to me unless i know what the pot size is or blinds are. the way they film this they almost make is seem irrelevant that its PL or limit or what not...must be the demo they are targeting.


I ask why does ESPN insist on not showing the size of the pot... especially in a pot limit event?!?




and yes, that is the inimitable Chops sweating Arieh at the WSOP.
