Its almost the end of the 2008 year of poker and the last major tournament to complete is the Bellagio Five-Diamond Poker Classic which consists of twelve preliminary events and then its capped off with the World Poker Tour Doyle Brunson Poker Classic which has a $15,000 buy-in. Well we are finally done with the twelve preliminary events and now it is time for the Doyle Brunson Poker Classic which is also the last stop for the World Poker Tour for 2008.
This year during the Bellagio Five-Diamond Poker Classic the tournament saw some pretty huge bad beats but at the same time they saw some pretty intelligent and well thought plays and the players that were able to show the most intelligence went on to finish very well in many of the tournaments.
