Tales from the WSOP

News from Las Vegas, straight from our friends who will be playing in the main event of The World Series of Poker!

So Dirty Ice Cream calls me up and tells me how theyve been going around vegas having the time of their life, meeting players like dan harrington, jen harman, phil gordon, and a ton of other poker superstars! Neil also played a little bit of $2-$5 NLHE and won $400 too. Theyre coming in to the main event on DAY 1-D, which is the 4th day one. AS of today, DAY 1-A just finished and they had 1,250 players, and registrations are still climbing fast! It's gonna be big!

Anyway, Here's a REALLY funny story:

The whole Pinoy crew is walking around the casino and they run into one of the poker superstars of High Stakes Poker. Eric, the ACF rounder, comes up to the guy and says

"What's up Sammy!" to which the guy replies

"Excuse me I'm not Sammy! Sammy's an asshole!"

HAHA! The guy turns out to be Freddy Deeb! HAHAHAHA!

Oh man i wish i was there.

Good luck guys! make history! WIN THE DAMN THING!

Quote of the Day

  • The best poker I've ever played has always entailed peace. A relaxed comfort. Eyes open, ears open, radar up. Absorbing my opponent's every message. Taking them as they come. Not mixing what those messages are with what I want them to be. It's like an aerial view. A view from above the myriad luck-dependent reactions of those many people who never gain such a peace. And when you gain that view, that peace - when you'd rather have the truth, no matter how disappointing, over a false hope, no matter how desirable - then you're a player. The hand you're on slips into a stream of thousands of other hands, no one of which, because of your lofty view, seems unduly important, no false fearful emotions rise within you. When you gain the peace of lofty perspective, you're a player, and when you're a player, you're free.- from "King of a Small World" by Rick Benett
