Mad props to Vermont — arguably the worst poker-playing state in North America!

    I especially like UNKNOWN. I might want to move there.

    Well done to Scott, Ed and Dave then.

    Isn’t Unknown where all masked wrestlers are from?

    Um, right there … between New York and Illinois.

    Though I just realized this document will change, so that may not be the case when someone reads this post tomorrow. Hmmm.

    This is great! Are you going to repost from time to time?


  8. DanM
    says:

    Pretty much daily. You know, unless I am out dancing.

    I dunno, Jen, how are your data entry skills?


  9. DanM
    says:

    Oh, wait, just re-got your question. Yes, we’ll repost from time to time, or maybe set it up on its own little page. Weekend decision. Your thoughts welcome.

    My thoughts are we need video of you dancing.

    Honestly, I can help with data entry if need be.

    Maybe it could be listed under the 2008 WSOP schedule and Citizen Stack Reports in the middle column?

    Apologies all around for not getting video of Dan dancing. I might have some photos to download from my camera, though.

    There are no photos to see here.

    Nico Levi 9ème Event 13
    David Benyamine 7ème Event 18
    Stéphane Tayar 9ème Event 23

    missing some datas my friend such as frenchies for example

    David Benyamine lists himself as being from Las Vegas, NV.

    Levi says he’s from London. (This info comes from the WSOP, and they are getting it from what the players themselves list as their home.)

    Stephane Tayar and his $45k final table finish is properly accounted for as a Frenchie. (How are things in Ste. Mande these days, btw?)
