2009 PCA Final Table Today

Almost forgot the PCA on on PokerStars.TV EPT-live today.

Also with Stephen, Howard, Dr. Pauly, and Otis giving the skinny in the PokerStarsBlog.

That'll brighten the day a little bit as the temps outside attempt to crack above zero.

Here's the media outline for the event and a couple of pictures of my favorite players from the 2009 PCA via Neil Stoddard.

Not Centre Court, but 120 mph check-raises accomplish the same thing. A winner.
