Festa al Lago Underway
With Phelps and Schneider out, there will be no Pokerati patch at the final table
Early reports from the $15k main event of WPT Festa al Lago (at Bellagio) … Michael Phelps showed up
to play … he’s out. And our favorite Donkey Bomber also just got bombed … he got it all-in with Aces only to have his opponent flop quad Queens.
Yikes, when I said “Feel My Pain,” I didn’t mean it so literally.
I’m following the so-so coverage not-so-closely via CardPlayer.com. A lotta pros … looks to be smaller than last year. Big-name pros playing mostly today (Hellmuth, Brunson, Negreanu, G.Smith, et al), probably because they’ve got the big premier of their poker musical (The Real Deal) at the Venetian tomorrow night.
