Tony G Crushes Hellmuth and Negreanu at the Big Game

Tony G was on full rant mode on his official blog after staging an impressive comeback on high-stakes cash game TV show, called ‘The Big Game.’ 
The new style program first aired in June this year, and is already proving a major viewing draw with its host of top name players at the $200/$400 and $100 ante cash game.
At the beginning of the show Tony G got off to the worst possible start after he was dealt 6c5s to Vanessa Rousso’s AhAs. With the action folding around to Tony G in the small blind, he made it 2,000 to go and was smooth called by Rousso on the big blind.
The flop fell 6s-Js-5c and the pot was raised and re-raised up to $43k before an As fell on the turn, at which stage Tony G bet out $10k, which was called by Rousso. A 5h then  fell on the river making both players a full house, at which point Tony G check called Rousso’s all-in bet to lose the $192,000 pot.
By the end of the day’s play Tony G was down around $177,000 and even had to borrow $100,000 from Daniel Negreanu in order to stick around.
Negreanu might now rue that decision as Phil Hellmuth and himself were then the target of some well timed Tony G aggression and soon found themselves the big losers in the game. Commenting on his blog, Tony G modestly explains:
“Hellmuth was on my table, I destroyed him – that bike thief Negreanu was also on my table. After taking a loan from him last time out I crushed him and then I crushed him again!”
“I dispatched every super pro ruthlessly – first I removed their soul, followed by their hearts and then their spinal columns! Finally, of course, I took their money!”
At one point in the proceeding Tony G had over $1 million in front of him by which time even Phil Hellmuth had seen enough and left.; “This was a magical moment as I watched him pack up his chips and get the bus home. I nearly fell off my chair!” described Tony G in his blog later.
The exciting poker show can be seen on FOX TV in the US five days a week with local times of airing posted on the shows official site
