Gigabet TV!

This is so amazingly good for online poker. Probably the most recognized name in online poker, Darrell Dicken AKA Gigabet, has just made the final 6 players at the Bellagio 5 Diamond Main Event. The winner of this event will take home just over $2,000,000, and with the second largest stack in the tournament, Mr. Dicken looks to be a near favorite to do so. I say near because the final 6 includes Doyle Brunson, Phil Laak and three other formiddable (if less famous) opponents.

This after Giga was nearly crushed last night on the last hand of play versus J.J. Liu. He got caught trying to run a huge bluff and ran into kings full. Ouch! Though he faught his way back from a decimated stack and now has the chance for revenge as J.J. is the #1 stack!

Should be a lot of fun to follow tomorrow and even more fun to watch on T.V. I wish I was in Vegas, I'd go watch it in person!


Good luck Giga!

P.S. I've been working on a side poker project for awhile now and it is nearing the testing phase. I can't talk a lot about it right now but you can be sure this blog will be the first place I will give the full details. We could use a few volunteers if anybody would be interested. We need feedback and lots of it! You'll be looking at and testing out our website and graphical user interface. Everything will be quick and painless and can all be done through email and online. If interested email grindblog@gmail.com.
