WSOP Day 33: Smells Like Happiness

By Pauly

Here's what happened on Day 33... umm.... I have no idea because I had a rare day off. I missed out at the $10K PLO Final Table that was won by Robert Mizrachi aka Brother of the Grinder. Texas Dolly failed to win Bracelet #11 and will have to wait to fight another day. Mizrachi also held off Tommy Ly and Patrik Antonius.

Lance over at the Poker Biz had an interesting post called The Sincerest Form of Flattery. Check it out.

Since I don't have anything else to report, how about some stats and a list of bracelet winners? There have been 51 bracelets awarded at to fifty players this year's WSOP. Donkey Bomber collected two. He's also at the top of the Player of the Year leaderboard.

By the way, I went to see a Widespread Panic concert on my day off. They played over at Planet Ho and I went with Change100, Spaceman, and Friedman. Anyway, on the way out to the parking garage after the concert ended, we waited for an elevator. The last people who were in the elevator were blazing up because not only did it reek of pot, but there was a heavy cloud of smoke inside the elevator. Anyway, a young very drunk woman was latched onto her boyfriend as they followed us in the elevator. As soon as the doors closed, she said, "It smells like happiness."
