Did you look at ESPN’s WSOP coverage Friday night time??? Did you miss this?
Lon McEarhern, very long time ESPN poker play-by-play gentleman, the voice of the WSOP, utilised a phrase that should really be familiar to all readers of this website. Check it out:
Which is ideal, he stated, “The Dreaded Pocket Kings”!!! This was the night time just after that notorious hand that I talked over final time (here), which was Aces vs Kings vs Kings.
(I apologize for the weak quality of the online video, cell mobile phone online video taken right off the monitor of a dated Tv set is not ideal. Nonetheless, you can listen to it, ideal?)
I was involved in a little something else when this aired are living, but my pal Lightning36 read it and promptly texted me to see if I had caught it far too. The good news is my DVR was recording the coverage and I was able to uncover the reference in my recording.
Lightning promptly tweeted out the following tweet:
Hey @NormanChad and @lonmceachern – please credit history @Robvegaspoker with the term you utilised tonight – The Dreaded Pocket Kings.
I retweeted that myself but to the most effective of my know-how they hardly ever commented on this, either on the air or on Twitter.
Now even even though I hardly ever essentially copyrighted the phrase, my website is proof that I originated it, and I will be getting in touch with my attorney, Pete P. Peters, for authorized advice in guarding my rights. At the quite the very least, if no monetary compensation is available, I should really get to do the “Shuffle Up and Deal” at the following principal occasion, ideal? Right?
Of course, I’m kidding. It was an honor to listen to my coined term for the dreaded hand on nationwide Tv set. Really great.
In the meantime, how’d you like the principal occasion this year? I must admit I didn’t continue to be up for the full heads up ultimate desk. I did have it recorded and watched the final couple of hands in the early morning, just after studying the final result. Both of those of the ultimate two men performed excellent and it was quite entertaining to be sure. Congrats to Tony Miles and primarily John Cynn, a quite deserving winner.
All the men at the end ended up good. Nonetheless it would be nice to see a female make the ultimate desk following year.
I’m sure Kate Hoang (under) would concur.
And whoever would make it, look at out for people dreaded Pocket Kings…..ideal Lon?
