The new Dallas on TV (right now)

by , Jul 25, 2006 | 8:52 pm

LAS VEGAS–Just sitting here at the WSOP, in a comfortable recliner in the MBL beer tent … and “Ricky Zilem” is on TV. On ESPN. It’s not the WPT event he won. It’s some WSOP final table from last year. Scotty Nguyen and Jen Harmon are also at the table. And Max Pescatori just beat Chris Ricky out of a pot. Can’t hear what anyone i saying — thumpy music in here — but it looks like he’s saying funny stuff.

UPDATE: It appears to be the feature table — not the final table — from the 2005 main event.

UPDATE UPDATE: Nope, can’t be that. Unless Zilem finished in the top 20 last year and we all missed it. Circuit event maybe?

    It’s the Circuit event at Bally’s.

    Yes, main event ($10k) from the WSOP circuit stop at Bally’s in November 2005. The one where Kido knocked him out by making his 6-high flush draw.

    The event “Ricky” later won was at the Bellagio Five Diamond.

    Where is there a news story about the Ricky Zilem/”Chris” situation? I can’t find any info about it except in forums but no one links to a news story.
