Just when you thought things couldn't get any lower in the BBT3, they do. I just got caught up reading about the Skillz series. I didn't realize how the Stud8 had gone down.
Hoy bought a seat?
Is that what this has become? Forget the thrill of accomplishment. The joy of victory and the agony of defeat is meaningless when you shoot your opponent a couple extra bucks and have them fold every hand so you "WIN" and are handed a TOC seat.
Even more ironic that he got the seat (yes, I win not use the word win) in the Skillz game. Skill? What skill, typing? Because that is what it was. He used skill to get heads up and then used the skill of typing for the supposed victory?
We all know Hoy is better than this. He is a damn good poker player. He could have won it outright and most likely would have. I don't understand why he felt the need to cut the deal.
And what is with all those people congratulating him on buying a seat? You people are foolish. There was no win. None. Having an opponent fold to you is not winning. It is bullshit.
What started out as an fun way to get some bloggers into the WSOP has gone horribly wrong.
The spirit of these tournaments is officially dead.
