Nations Cup in London Tonight

by , Nov 18, 2011 | 8:00 am

If you had looked into the London sky last night, you might have seen Barry Greenstein rotating slowly through the air like a hairy balloon. Which should have come as no surprise, were you standing at the base of the London Eye. Otherwise – I hope you enjoyed your drugs.

Barry, Vanessa Selbst, Antonio Esfandiari, Matt Matros, Ali Eslami, Jennifer ‘Jennicide’ Leigh, and Isaac Haxton were representing the U.S.A. in the Nations Cup. A duplicate poker tournament arranged by the International Federation of Poker, as part of the UK Festival of Mind Sports.

The action continues tonight inside the grand County Hall, which is directly behind where I was standing when I took that photo. Sadly, the UK team are already out of the running, but at least they have a short journey home.
