WSOP Final 9 is down to 7... reports, other news

Well I hadn't planned on blogging during the Final Table, but here's a couple posts... maybe I should find a position in reporting on major events.... wonder if it would get in the way of me Playing in such events? I should enquire from all my twitter friends, with a decent percentage of those in the poker news world, among others.

Moon makes a big raise, and get reraised, with 45 million in t he post, he has to only call 6.4mil, everyone screaming he has pot odds, etc.. how can he not call? He folds. This put him at 39mil. Everyone talks about it, he explains why, etc... remember not to let the crowd or what "other people think" distract you when in a major tournament, like the largest poker tournament in the world :P
This may be the most talked about hand so far.. except for ..
