PokerStars Players hit it big
It's a big week for a couple of PokerStars players.
First off, Tim "crankyman" Ramsey has less reason to be cranky this week. He just won the $2000 buy-in No-Limit Hold'em event at the Indiana WSOP Circuit Event. Ramsey pocketed $72,630 and a WSOP ring after defeating a 104-strong field, including David "The Dragon Pham, John Phan, Liz Liu, Scott Fishman, and Men the Master. What's more, he also cashed in in the $1500 event the day before.
I met Ramsey earlier this year in Vienna where he'd traveled to compete in Season 1 of the European Poker Tour. He made the final table there, as well. Congrats, Tim. It's nice to see you on a good run.
I met few people who weren't fascinated by the tale of Bernard "Dogger9" Lee. The Frequent Player Point WSOP qualifier had an amazing run at this year's WSOP and wrote up this amazing nine-part account of his efforts.
After a long wait, we'll finally start to see Bernard on TV. If the editing hasn't been too harsh, I'm told we'll see him on TV tonight and next week. Here's the schedule as I have it.
Nov 1st--9pm ET
Nov 8th--8pm amd 9pm ET.
I suspect it will be both fun and brutal to watch.
