"Play perfectly all night and get beat in four hands by some donkey who can't spell the game!" - Phil Hellmuth while he kicked over a chair after a suckoutIn case you went to bed early, you missed a Hellmuthian tantrum last night. Make sure you read last night's updates because his antics were classic Hellmuth. Too bad ESPN wasn't taping the event.
Go read my article on Fox Sports called WSOP: First Impressions.
Thanks to Amy for the shoutout yesterday in her blog. While I was covering the final table last night, she was giving me shit about my penchant for malcontent blondes.
My best thoughts and deepest sympathies are with Iggy and his family today.
Go read my brother Derek's blog. He posted one of the funniest recaps of the blogger Vegas trip from three weekends ago.
Stop by Charlie's blog and send him your best wishes. I am overwhelmed by the response from Las Vegas pros who are constantly asking me how Charlie is doing.
Go visit Flip Chip's World Series of Poker photo gallery. Some of his pictures also appear on Fox Sports. By the way, Mrs. Flipchip hit a royal flush in video poker at the Rio. She felt bad that I was working so hard that she gave me a cut of her winnings!
Thanks to everyone who helped back me in the Wednesday $1500 event! 20 of my friends hooked me up. Thanks to: Maudie, Al CantHang, Tanya, Derek, Briana, Otis, Senor, Iggy, Joaquin, Human Head, Obie, Joe Speaker, Wil, Spaceman, Sean & Brent from Lord Admiral Radio, Chad, Halverson, Gracie, April H., and Poker Prof & Flipchip. They all get a cut of my winnings.
