The big game was on today and it was a long day. This is the European version of High Stakes Poker. The minimum buy-in is 100k with blinds of $300-$600 and the ante is $100. The boys that did turn up were Howard Lederer, Gus Hansen, Mike the Mouth AKA Mike Matusow, Erik Seidel, and Phil Ivey – to name a few.
To start with, I was chatting about stuff with Howard and I think we made up and put the bad stuff in Paris behind us. I respect Howard with what he has done with FullTilt Poker. The site is huge now and he has done a lot of the work.
