Today on my Final Table poker show, Dennis Phillips and I were at the Rio in Las Vegas to begin our coverage of the 2010 World Series Of Poker.

After a recap of the opening weekend (especially the $1k event, which I played in), we had an extended conversation with poker legend Barry Greenstein. He shared his memories of the first time he played in the WSOP, where he cashed but still lost money, and explained how he handles the grind of playing tournaments every day for the six weeks of the series.

Then, during a conversation about big-money televised cash games, Barry made the startling revelation that he thinks he’s at a disadvantage on those shows because — in his words — he’s past his prime. Delving further, Barry detailed mistakes he still finds himself making, which poker players at every level will be able to relate to.

We were enthralled listening to one of the best minds in poker go into such thoughtful analysis of his own game, including which games in the 8-game-mix (that made up the $50,000 Players Championship this weekend) Barry considers his best and worst, and how he changes strategies for each one.
