Admittedly I'm a little behind on this, but I haven't blogged in a while so I figured that I should probably do that. One of my long time poker buddies and IRL friend, Matt Giannetti has made the November Nine! For those of you unfamiliar with him (3rd from the left in the white UT hat), he was known on stars as hazards21 back in the good old days and played the highest games available tangling with the legendary H@££INGGOL, tsarrast, B Buddy, thorladen, and all of the other top stars pros circa '06-'07. Shortly thereafter he moved to Vegas and began to primarily play live so he fell off of the online radar for a while, but would occasionally play some sundays and had some pretty deep runs in those as well.
He's always been a very very talented player, much better than myself. He has some real natural talent and even despite the variance of MTT's like this I think that he has a very good shot to go far and even to take down the whole thing! I'm going to be out there in November to see him hopefully take it down in person.
If you're looking for someone to cheer on when the time comes I know that he'd appreciate the support. Wicked chops seems to like his odds at least!
