Nobody went 32-0 and there is one person alone on top right now - 'polaris769' stands lone with 30 after the first round. His only two incorrect selections from the first round were Seton Hall and Maryland and he had both losing in the next round anyway. Six others are tied for second with 29. polaris769 - 30 (Villanova) ajw24211 - 29 (Kansas) Cthrilla - 29 (Villanova) GoHskrs - 29 (Gonzaga) allani12 - 29 (Villanova) TheBigEarn - 29 (North Carolina) uncleTK71 - 29 (UCLA)

  6. And yes, as Antonio pointed out on Twitter earlier tonight - there is one more condition to the bet that I had forgot to mention: I have to wear the shirt if anybody other than my wife and daughter come to our house.
  7. LOL that you think I'm washing it 300 times sir ... That's what Febreeze is for my friend. It *might* get washed 50 times.
  8. Everybody's entitled to have their take. How Antonio (or anybody for that matter) spends their own money really is only up to them. Was more than happy to take the challenge and have some fun in the process. Though, I'm curious what you mean by "a guy like you".
  9. Okay, a few folks have asked me for the details on the prop bet I made with Antonio Esfandiari during the WSOP so I figured I’d put it here and let you guys ask any questions you might have. The Bet Antonio Esfandiari offered me an $8,000 freeroll that I couldn’t wear the same dress shirt for exactly one year. I accepted. How About 30 players from the money in the 2016 WSOP Main Event, I was standing with Donnie Peters and Remko Rinkema of PokerNews covering the play leading up to the bubble. Antonio was being rather talkative and as he’s prone to do, sitting in his chair barefoot. Somehow the conversation turned to the fur-lined Gucci slippers he wore to the Rio that day. (Note: they’re pretty awful) I asked him how much he’d pay me to wear them for a year and he told me I couldn’t “pull off the look” (I don’t disagree). He then asked me how much for me to wear the dress shirt I was wearing for one year. Now, for background, Donnie Peters had a bet like this with Antonio and Jason Mercier a few years ago that he couldn’t cut his hair for 18 months. His price was $5,000. He accepted and won. At this point I knew two things: 1) Antonio wasn’t accepting my first bid 2) He would likely balk at any further negotiation off of his price and I’d be left with $0. I wanted $10,000 - that was the number that was in my head, but knowing #1 above, I asked for $15,000. Antonio said that was “too rich” and I told him to counter the offer. He came back with $8,000. It was lighter than I expected but close enough to what I wanted that I wasn’t going to lose an $8,000 freeroll over the $2,000 difference. I snap-accepted. Antonio told the table he would have gone as high as $10,000. I don’t think he would have. What The shirt is a dress shirt. I’ve had it for about a year or so. Why It’s a freeroll. If I fail to pull it off, I’m just the guy who lost out on a free $8,000. When The bet was made on July 14, 2016. I have to wear it until July 14, 2017. The Ground Rules These are important, and a big reason why I felt like I’m a massive favorite in the bet. 1. I only have to wear the shirt when I’m outside of my house. (the one exception being when I’m swimming, but I do have to wear the shirt at the pool if I’m not in the pool). I work - for the most part - from home. If I was in an office five days a week with a commute, no chance I do this bet (or at least, for “just” $8,000). 2. Yes. I can wash it. My biggest concern is that the shirt might not last the full year. I’ve done some reading on best ways to take care of the shirt and make sure I get 365 days out of it. So I’m relatively confident I’ll make it. 3. I like the shirt so it’s not going to bother me to have to wear it. 4. No, I can’t go buy a bunch of the same shirt and wear that. Antonio signed the inside of the collar to make sure that it’s THE shirt. Also worth noting, the company that made the shirt is no longer in business. 5. How will Antonio know I’m wearing it? Well, I’ve known him for 10 years (he was one of our columnists when I ran BLUFF) and I’m pretty sure he trusts me. I’m posting regular updates on Twitter. (Follow me @Lance_Bradley)
  10. So Fedor Holz has won over $18,000,000 in the last 14 months. Now he's saying he's done with poker - at least as a pro. http://www.pocketfives.com/articles/wsop-bracelet-hand-fedor-holz-retiring-poker-592443/ Do we believe him or is this just another player saying they're walking away only to find themselves drawn back to the game like Shaun Deeb and Mike McDonald?
