Holy shit. It's August 1st? Time has flown for sure. Anyway, as summer slowly ticks away, enjoy this lovely first Sunday in August with a few links of note...
Let's kick off with some of Flipchip's 2010 WSOP photos. He was hard at work at yet another WSOP and uploaded a gallery of 140 or so pictures. (LasVegasVegas)OK, that's it. Good luck grinding the Sunday tournaments. NGTFOOMO.
Snoopy made me laugh all summer long by sharing the trials and tribulations of being a mild-mannered Englishman trapped behind enemy lines in douchebag central aka the Hard Rock. He finally left Vegas and returned to London, but not before he penned one last post about Vegas titled Taxi from the Dark Side. (Black Belt Poker)
Annie Duke talked about internet gambling on MSNBC. (Pokerati)
Shamus weighed in on politics and baseball. Orel Hershiser's Pitch for Poker is a worthy read. (Hard-Boiled Poker)
