Laura has Alec Torelli, Mike Matusow, The G, and Roland de Wolfe on deck for Tony’s video blog at the PokerNews Interactive live stream of the Party Poker Big Game V. Laura is holding a Phil Ivey doll and says, “Phil Ivey’s in the house!” before she asks Tony if he’s coming back to the game.
Tony says it’s up to the organizers and a big discussion starts about who is ahead at this point, Jennifer Tilly is according to Matusow and de Wolfe but Tony disagrees, he says they are tallying it up right now. Tony believes Jennifer isn’t coming back to play and Matusow says they will all give her 500 to come back so Tony won’t win.
Tony says he will wait for the organizers to give him the green light so he can jet off to London. de Wolfe says they are fixing it up so Tony will have the badge to say winner and that Jennifer is actually ahead.
Laura asks Matusow what he thinks of his doll; the doll takes a beating as Mike ‘shows’ what he thinks of the doll by throwing it onto the floor, stepping on it, drop kicking it as he talks, and ends with, “I’m playing better now!”
Laura asks Mike who he’s going to get at the table and Mike stammers through, “I don’t know…” when Torelli pipes in, “It’s hard for Mike to find the target when he is the target…”
Laura tells them all to shake hands and they do! Tony rousts them with a team huddle cheer, “WE CAN DO IT!”
As they go back to the table, Laura spins the yarn that they all love each other…really!
