Poker Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for serious players and enthusiasts of poker. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Are there any textual logs available to be read? Obviously there are the video records, but that's not really what I seek here. My search turned out nothing, so I am skeptical there are any. I would love to go over the hands played at WSOPs (mainly final tables), do so statistics etc.

Edit: I don't mean I would like the exact hole cards for every hand. I am curious what the player actions were and what cards were shown at showdown. Anything above would be a sweet bonus.

I'm going to go out on a limb and say: no, this does not exist

Short of hands that are blogged about on various poker news sites, this is virtually impossible. There are thousands of people playing and only a very small percentage of hands played are ever recorded anywhere (either by bloggers or by camera). Even if they were all taped, it would take a massive amount of effort to transcribe the action into text format. Given the near-zero payout for doing this, that's a huge expense with no upside -- not gonna happen.

Oh I guess you are right about that. I should have stressed I'm most interested in the final table. Certainly would not be that hard to write down one table, so there's slight hope a record exists. –  Mikulas Dite Feb 7 '12 at 23:36
    
Yeah, I agree - a final-table-only record is much more possible (to the point of being relatively likely), though I don't know of anywhere that actually does it. –  Jeffrey Blake Feb 7 '12 at 23:37
    
I smell a new market for an OCR program that can read all hands placed up to the hole cam! –  CheckRaise Feb 8 '12 at 20:23
