Day 3 of the 2011 WSOP is currently underway and the big story doesn't center around one person but the fact that for the first time in WSOP history, the Main Event is actually being broadcast live on ESPN3. com and ESPN 2 television. I followed the coverage earlier in the day on ESPN3. com and at present I am following along on ESPN 2.

Lisa Hamilton 430x286
Day 2 of the 2011 WSOP Main Event[[sitetree_link,id=597]] is currently underway. The Day 1a and 1c fields combined to make a field of 2,031 players that returned to the Rio earlier today. One of those players that started the day just barely above her initial starting stack was Lisa Hamilton. Since that point, Hamilton has been on a monster tear and is currently sitting with 188,000 in chip at the time I write this blog.

Victoria Coren is in Seat 9 and gives some advice regarding pocket aces: VictoriaCoren[http://twitter. com/#%21/VictoriaCoren] Note to self: if you'd planned a cigarette break, don't change your mind just because you find aces.

2011 WSOP Main Event Day 1b - Screw Poker - I'd Rather Be at 4-H Camp

4 H Camp 227x300
So the 2011 WSOP Main Event is currently in Day 1b and honestly, I don't give a damn about the event oday.   For most of this week until today I have been participating in the annual 4-H Camp I work at yearly, or as I will call it this year, the World Series of Ultimate Uno. What is Ultimate Uno?  You play the same rules as Uno, except for the fact that if you have multiples of a number or special card, you can play them all at the same time.   Also, if you get forced to draw 2 and you have a draw 2 card, you can lay it down and make the next person draw 4.
