  • Elvis Sighting at wsop

    24 Jul 2007

    For those of you who have be reading the whole tournament tipping vs not tipping controversary, let’s take a moment to check out this dealer.

  • Jennicide Up For Las Vegas Weekly’s Beauty Contest

    21 Jul 2007

    I have no problem admitting I use Myspace. It would be ridicerous (did I just say ridicerous?) to pretend I were too cool or that I were only there for business reasons, like I said in the first sentence of this small paragraph…I use Myspace. So last night when I checked my email, added some […]

  • The 2007 WSOP Media Award Goes To…

    18 Jul 2007

    Just before reaching the Amazon room the carpet turns to marble and suddenly one is faced with an option…straight ahead – food and poker, turn to the left – poker and poker sweatshirts and juuuuust right…the media room. Every morning I made the right choice of the media room to set up shop and claim […]

  • I’m Going To Disneyland

    13 Jul 2007

    LAS VEGAS – I just received word that I don’t need to be here for a potential press release (don’t ask, no hints, more on that later hence the expression…press release). After my brain realized my soul was granted freedom from the media room/The Rio/The WSOP/Las Vegas/Sao Paulo and The Tilted Kilt… my body crashed. […]

  • Around The Amazon in Six Minutes

    13 Jul 2007

    LAS VEGAS – Spiderman is out but Huckleberry is in and looking confident and happy at his table. I was disappointed to read David Levi busted but on the contrary found him on break holding 360k in chips. I watched him lay down AK yesterday against JJ and 8c 6c. The 86er turned a straight […]

    12 Jul 2007

    LAS VEGAS – Most media veterans would agree that the past few days have lacked the excitement of previous main events, but that changed today when players practically spent an entire level going hand for hand to “get in the money.” Some tables took so long to play a single hand one had to wonder […]

  • More Skills on Day 2b of the WSOP Main

    11 Jul 2007

    Day 2b has begun and the room is quiet with the exception of thousands of chips being shuffled. Players have on the game face to get some serious work done and the excitement of playing in the Main Event has worn off. Today marked yet another twist in poker with Vinnie Vinh showing up to […]

  • Liger’s Chasing with skills

    11 Jul 2007

    Familiar faces left in Day 2a are few and far between. John Duthie (one of my favorites) is among the chip leaders with Huck Seed not too far behind and David Levi working a short stack. On break Levi said he wasn’t too excited about 50k after a big loss but since he started the […]
