We now return to our regular programming …
So, um, like the World Series of Poker is underway. And the CardPlayer Mafia is apparently cracking down. You can follow the early coverage via Pauly and LasVegasVegas. Oh, and Otis, too … (Others, including Amy Calistri and yours truly, will be out there soon.)
But don’t expect to follow the semi-live action via Daniel Negreanu’s blog. He was chastised today for trying to use his Blackberry from the poker room floor. Not sure how incensed he was or wasn’t, but apparently he called in his personal assistant (Patti) and asked her to take notes for him at the table for his blog since he couldn’t use his electronic personal assistant.
In typical Negreanu fashion, he has made a nice adjustment … replacing his blog with video diaries — shot outside the Rio. Good stuff … by why do I think CardPlayer’s ill-thought-out attempt to monopolize coverage inside the Rio will result in more good stuff taking place outside the Rio?
Thanks, Wade, for the scoop.
