World Series of Poker

Most of the bloggers headed over to the AlCantHang after party at the La Salsa Cantina. They have 345,875 different types of tequila.

I wanted to head over to that, but my friend Tommy from V-Vegas was playing in the WSOP Event #3 Pot Limit Hold 'Em so I thought I'd go sweat him for a while. Tommy qualified online through Full Tilt Poker. Since he couldn't get in to yesterdays sold out event, he decided to play today.

The Rio was jamming and ramming, poker chips flying. I saw a lot of pro's; Daniel Negreanu, Eric Lindgren, Eric Siedel, Howard Lederer, John Juwanda, Chris Fergurson, Phil Ivey, Phil Gordon, Cyndy Violette, Clonie Gowen, Evelyn Ng, Annie Duke, Jennifer Harman, Phil Hellmuth, Ted Forrest, and Marcel Luske. Saw a couple celebrities too like James Woods, Tobey McGuire, and Jennifer Tilley.

If you want to get a feel for what it's like on the floor, Dr. Pauly is now reporting for Poker Player Newspaper from the WSOP, check out his late night final table reports, and his contributions to Las VegasVegas.

In case you haven't heard, check out Phil Gordons podcast from the floor of the WSOP. Phil interviews players at his table and other pro's during breaks, and talks about his strategy on specific hands throughout the tournament.

Hey Obie. Very nice blog :0) I just got inside from washing and waxing my truck. It is my baby. Took me 2 hours though. So I settled down into my basement and started doing some web surfing. Anyways I am in the process of grabbing my masters degree and have spent the last 6 months researching canada poker chips. In the midst of my surfing I landed smack dab in the middle of your blog. I hope you do not think I am intruding but I must say it is great blog. Even though World Series of Poker is way off base from canada poker chips I found myself cruising through your blog archives for the last half hour :0) You have some nice blogging friends. Anyways, I need to get back to my mission. I wrote don’t your url and feel free to visit me here at canada poker chips. I am so busy so I can only update my site monthly. Keep up the great work.

Keep up the great blogging and I am sure I will visit World Series of Poker again!!

I was expecting something different when I visited your blog. Well I think the information on this blog is great. I have my own blog and I wish I got half as many comments as your blog does. Anyways, I am a fill in teacher at a local high school and I am always doing research on various areas of interest. This weeks topic relates 85% to your blog. I already bookmarked you for future use. If you want to exchange information I will leave my link at the bottom of this. If you don�t mind I will add my 2 cents to this blog topic once in awhile. Although most of the time I just like to read and see what other people�s thoughts are! (hey I am a teacher!)
Thanks again!poker chip review.

Well I have a vacation day this week and what better way to spend it surfing through blogs! I actually do this a ton to get ideas for my own blog. It seems that you keep your blog up to date and get some very good posts from users all over the place. If you don�t mind I added you to my favorites and you may want to grab my url and do the same. I am a busy dad but I do try to keep my site up to date with useful information and articles for you to read. Well back to surfing. Have a great day and thanks again from, quality poker chips

I honestly must say this is the best blog I have ever come across. I am not just saying that to kiss your butt! I am studying for my master degrees and spent the last 12 hours (and 12 cups of java) researching this area topic. Many blogs have generic information but yours is different. I can actually apply some of this information to my studies. No worries I will give you full credit in my references section. I took it upon myself to add you to my favorites and will visit back to let you know how my grade ends up. Thanks so much from!nevada jacks poker chips.
