  1. "Honey! I was supposed to go broke on that hand! But they forgot one thing - I can dodge bullets, baby!"Shortly thereafter, he goes broke (I think it was the next hand that was televised, wasn't it?). He's a loudmouth, a crybaby, a very poor loser, but the guy does know how to play poker.What I wonder sometimes is - what is he listening to in those headphones?

  2. You must be kidding, half of the WSOP episodes involve Norman chad making idiotic comments about pointless things.  The past two Episodes of the main event were nauseating to watch.
    No, I am not kidding. Both have the same "format", like any typical announcer team - one guy is play-by-play, and the other guy is color. I will listen to Norman over Vince any day - at least there is some variety to the dialogue.
  3. Probably the only people with the clout to create a "new" world series would be the other major poker entity, the WPT, but I seriously doubt that they are interested in anything but televising hold'em.
    For WPT, I think it would be interesting to see some different announcers. Mike and Vince have a selection of about a half-dozen phrases and it's like hearing a broken record.They seem to place a very high priority on making sure that everyone knows the "slang" term for each hand dealt, as if that's a major component of the game. "Oh, Ace King, he's got 'Big Slick' as we say" or "Looks like he has the Gabor sisters, the Hilton sisters, two queens" or "Oh, the Jack - Five, or 'Motown', as we like to call it" - that tired stuff gets old real quick.At least the WSOP has some funny and insightful commentary, as well as different angles on the game itself.
  4. Raymer is one of the best representatives of poker today. He is always a gentleman at the table, even when others around him are not. What's more, he is a brilliant player and deserves the rewards he has received through his winnings and endorsement deals.Any moron who creates a thread such as this must be incredibly insecure, to be this hateful to such a nice guy who has done nothing against anyone here.
