Monday Morning Nugs: Eight Years Later, WSOP Flashback, Blackjack Whale, and the Monday Morning Pills

First of all,my condolences to BJ on the passing of his dog Rhapsody. He's in doggie heaven now. RIP Rhap.

Okay, now onto some pokery nuggets of news bits on this Monday morning. I don't have any time to waste, so here's a quickie...
Today in Poker History: Shamus waxes about Chris Moneymaker's momentous victory at the 2003 Main Event (back when the WSOP was played in May) eight years ago today in The "Boom" Eight Years Later. (Hard-Boiled Poker)

WSOP Flashback: Change100 shared a flashback from 2008 in Leaving Los Angeles. (Pot Committed)

Poker and the Law: I enjoyed this post from Grange95 that he posted a couple of weeks ago...Regulation, Segregation, and a Cereus Case of Déjà Vu. (crAAKKer)

Whale: Some random guy won $15 million at the blackjack tables in AC. H/T to KevMath for this tale of a little guy busting up the casinos. (Deadspin)

Fear Mongering: There's a brand new Monday Morning Blue Pill (compiled by Change100) and Monday Morning Red Pill (compiled by yours truly). (Tao of Fear)
That's it. Happy Monday. NGTFOOMO!
