Tiffany Michelle Ends WSOP Run

Last Woman No Longer Standing

by , Jul 14, 2008 | 5:42 pm

Well, that sure didn’t last. Pokerati’s only just-like-family player in the main event has been eliminated.

After losing momentum throughout the day, Tiffany Michelle’s last hand and last stand went down as reported by PokerNews:

Dennis Phillips raised to 500,000 from UTG, Peter Eastgate called and Tiffany Michelle called from the big blind. The flop was [cards]Ad Th 9c[/cards]. Michelle checked, Phillips bet 1,000,000, Eastgate called and Michelle sat, propped up on her knees for about a minute before annoucing, “All in.” She had about 3.8 million behind. Phillips folded and Eastgate called.

Eastgate [cards]As Ah[/cards]

Michelle [cards]Ac Jd[/cards]

Tiffany Michelle needed serious help. Her top pair needed running straight cards to beat Eastgate’s set of aces. The turn was the [cards]5h[/cards] and Michelle was drawing dead. The river was the [cards]6d[/cards] and Tiffany Michelle’s Main Event run came to an end. She exited the stage in 17th place to a standing ovation.

Nice run, chica! Sorry we won’t be seeing you at the final table…

Six Degrees of Pokerati: Top Tier Finalists at the 2008 WSOP Main Event

by , | 12:52 pm

Pokerati has no horses in the race, but in a remote way, we do. As a matter of fact, Pokerati is connected to all of the remaining 27 players in the 2008 WSOP main event. We like to call it Six Degrees of Pokerati.

Familiar with the Six Degrees of Separation? Or more importantly, the Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon? There’s our logic in a nutshell. It’s not the most original concept in the world, but give us a break, will ya?

Since some players will be eliminated as the day progresses, we should at least throw out the top tier – those who come in at only one degree of separation from Pokerati. Drumroll…

Tiffany Michelle: Dan and I both know her. We have been to karaoke with her at Imperial Palace, I have been to dinner parties with her at Mariealena’s, and I have even seen her sing at several L.A. nightclubs. Most importantly, Dan and I are both MySpace friends with her, and we’ve shared close quarters on media row at the WSOP. We’re practically family.

Brandon Cantu: We share some of the same friends, like Joy, Tiffany, and Jeff Madsen, and we have ended up at some of the same social functions. Not only are we MySpace friends, but he came to my 2007 birthday party at PURE nightclub. He’s practically a brother to me.

Players in the main event who are two or three degrees of Pokerati coming soon…
