Expect a short heads-up battle for the 2009 World Series of Poker

Joe Cada wsopWhy do I think the heads-up battle will be short and sweet? Well I have several good reasons for my speculation: And they all sort of tie in to one another.

* Joe Cada has Darvin Moon out-chipped over 2-to-1

This was quite evident towards the end of Saturday/Sunday’s play, when we saw Moon make some odd calls and plays rather quickly. In my experience when a player stops deliberating and just goes with the first semblance of a hand they pick up it’s a sign that they have had enough.

* Darvin Moon is happy to have gotten this farWorld Series of Poker

I think the 3 month break is bad for the non-professional players: A pro’s desire to win will likely increase, but an amateur has all of that extra time to think about how they arelucky to be in the position, and how fortunate they are to have come this far: Moon is guaranteed over $5 million; HE’S HAPPY!

* Joe Cada is exponentially more experienced as a poker player

Cada may be 21, but with Moon never having played online poker Cada has a huge edge in experience. In fact, this is likely to be Moon’s first heads-up experience in a tournament: As a pro –and online player—Cada likely has 100’s or 1,000s of heads-up experiences.

I simply feel that for all of these reasons Moon will have to catch cards to win the tournament.
