    Watkinson is definitely an amateur wrestling fan. He wrestled back in the day (not sure where, but on an old WPT episode they talked about it and showed a clip of him wrestling)

    He was at a final table a couple years ago wearing a Wrestling USA hat.
    I will smash your face into a car windshield and then take your mother, Dorothy Mantooth, out to a nice seafood dinner and never call her again!

    Tell me about it, this morning, I woke up and I shit a squirrel, but what I can't get is the damn thing is still alive. So now, I've got a shit covered squirrel running around my office and I don't know what to name it.

    Here you go Spidey -

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lee_Watkinson

    "He is an economics graduate and quotes wrestling and surfing as his main interests outside of poker. He wrestled at 142 pounds in college and 187 pounds the last time that he wrestled in 2001."

    He wrestled for Eastern Washington University which has since eliminated the program.

    Watkinson won the WSOP Pot Limit Omaha in 2006 and cashed out for $650,000 and the gold bracelet.

    Lee Childs is another guy to root for.

    This is in his bio.

    Raised in Virginia, Childs was into sports as a child. One of his greatest accomplishments is that he never wrestled before joining his high school team in the ninth grade, and by his senior year, he’d only lost two matches during the regular season. Both of which he avenged in the state playoffs on his way to a second place finish in his weight class.

    I discovered the Jack Reacher books last summer and I love 'em.

    Pretty good, 2 wrestlers in the field makes the odds at least 6:1.

    Hey Big, there's even a Ruskie at the final table. He won't last long, but he's there.

    Final Table Bios: Alex Kravchenko
    Seat 2 - Alex Kravchenko Chip Count: 6.57 million Hometown: Moscow, Russia Alex Kravchenko was born in Archangel, Russia. He's married with two kids. He makes his living as a businessman, but if you've seen him play poker, he's all business. He displays very little emotion at the table and you can't get a read on him because he gives off the same intimidating blank stare. Kravchenko is a self-taught poker player who's been dabbling in the game for over a decade. He's won over $219K in tournaments held in Europe and starting playing smaller-buyin tournaments about six or seven years ago in Moscow. He bought into the WSOP Main Event directly and could definitely afford it. He's the only other WSOP bracelet winner at the final table aside from Lee Watkinson. Kravchenko won an Omaha 8 event and beat Bryan Devonshire heads up to win. This is his third final table at the WSOP and he's cashed five times (not including the main event) for about $269K. He's also cashed in two previous WSOPs and cashed four times on the WPT.
