      I expect a Phil Hellmuth blow up of some sort... just watched episode 2 and I'm gonna watch the 3rd one pretty soon... Is there going to be a thread to discuss every episode like for High Stakes Poker or this one will do just fine?

      Did you notice how much tony's "Raw vodka...its just vodka on the rocks.." is starting to take effect? I thought he was slightly pissed to be honest..

      and Phil Laak is my new favourite player! :)

      Yeah, i dunno wtf wiggins thought that shove was going to achieve? O_o Maybe it was a value raise? :P lol

      Also, in the hand with his KK v A9, i thought it was quite funny when he slammed the Kings over and went "CALL..KINGS!!!!" and was horrified that Phil could possibly have the 9, it was as if he's never seen an over pair cracked! :) funny!! although, he's doin pretty good at the min..the tadpole may be developing legs! although I would put my house on it that we shall never see "E Double" on HSP!!

      hes playing too scared and setting himself up to get bluffed. hes to easy to read and isnt aggressive enough when he has a good hand. Hes letting the fact that hes playing with pros affect his game im sure he doesnt play like that online in what ever stakes he usually plays at.

      This will be the official discussion thread and the OP will be updated once new episodes are added. With High Stakes Poker we had the problem that each episode was comprised of 4-5 parts, which meant that we would have one OP with about 50 YouTube windows. However, since Big Game has only one part each time, this approach should be better than creating a discussion thread and an episodes thread.

      ;D And so true. I think the rules kinda suck. Once he 3/4 up against Phill he didnt see a flop once in 50 hands lol. Its like he wasn't even there lol. Other then that a great show with interesting and funny players :)

      Really lovin the new Loose Cannon. The kid has some balls!! 3 betting/4 betting Doyle right off the bat ?!? I hope to see him walk away with a healthy profit..

      I'm suprised to see Ernest leave with a profit. Guess the .01/.02 (100 BB's) tactics also work at 200/400 (250 BB's)

      They don't work, as his english that was horrific.

      It makes me wonder, he was taught english as primary language. English is only my 4th. And i speak better than E-Dub. The "DC" just got profit for hitting lottery with his cowboys and sucking out big time on PH.

      Still it was fun to see the commentators go: "Our loose cannon with AK, he should raise here and... ...he calls".

      The new Will Davis sure has balls, but is picking the wrong spots to do so. Keep my hopes up he goes good though.

      Ugh.. Ernest is playing so horrible.. i mean really?

      "i wanna earn yall respect ya know"

      ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME?!?!? You'd earn some respect if you didn't play so crappy. He's as bigger joke then Phil Helmuth to them.




      Hope the next loose cannon is actualy loose.. I wonder how he plays NL100-200 or w/e he plays when he plays so bad..

      Idd ;P But there is such a fine line between being a genius and being a moron. At the end of the day, it comes down to when you make that move, but I'd rather see him 4-bet Doyle the Rock than fold A-10 to a simple raise.. Personally, I'm amazed he didn't go broke with the second nut flush.. I'm loving his play, and in todays episode, his personallity started to shine through. High hopes fro tomorrows episoide!

      Does anyone else notice that Daniel is trying ridiculously hard to impress the hostess! lmao! He's like properly drooling over her ! lol :)

      Funny !!

      Just finished Ep2 Wk2

      Does anyone else think that set of 10s hand was not a pretty standard fold, but, not the worlds hardest fold either?
      I ran the hands threw the calculator, and he's only like a 53% chance to win over those hand, and is pretty much crushed against higher sets + flopped straights...HOWEVER, being stuck 100K I think I may have just closed my eyes and got the chips in...

      What would everyone do if they were in that spot? Set of 10's .. Fold??

      He has had a few coolers, is anyone every folding the KK to Doyles min-raise?
