LAS VEGAS–This new batch of freshly legal internet wisehands … not sure what to make of ’em. It’s kinda hard not to like the savant-ish ability of RaiNKhaN (I think I’m getting the way he does the funky caps right). But there’s a clear leaning toward the WWE as opposed to the PGA that they seem to bring to the table with them.

Hevad “Rain” Khan is currently 4th in chips with 12 players remaining. I know I really do hope he makes the final table — for pure entertainment value and to, you know, yo, represent. But were he to win? Yikes … that would create 10s of thousands of young punks wanting to be like him … and that would be either a really good thing, or a really bad thing.

Here’s the video of RaiNKhaN playing more sit-n-gos than any normal person would know what to do with:

And here’s a “secret” video of one of his tamer outbursts during main event play:

(The comments he’s getting are also rather telling about Gen-Y poker players and what they think matters.)
