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.
