Early Saturday evening, I saw a news blurb on Wicked Chops Poker[http://wickedchopspoker. com/john-racener-arrested-for-third-dui-mugshot/] regarding John Racener being arrested for his THIRD DUI charge.   After doing a little digging, I discovered that this is his third DUI charge in the last five years.   Anyone that knows me well knows my views about alcohol, but this is a case where anyone with any sense at all has to agree that John Racener needs some serious help.

Duhamel Bracelet 259x300
It all came down to this night. Jonathan Duhamel with a nearly 6 to 1 chip lead over John Racener. Personally, I predicted this heads-up battle before the November Nine and was looking forward to the event. Unfortunately, what we got was pretty much a one sided affair with Duhamel pretty much picking up pots at will.

The 2010 World Series of Poker Main Event final table, aka the November Nine, is under way and the action has been absolutely insane thus far.   Bruce Buffer kicked off action with his typical "Its Time!" introduction for "shuffle up and deal. "  Action was then soon underway. It did not take a long time for a monster pot to develop.

Soi Nguyen the admitted amateur at the table has not let the money or fame affect his life. He is still working his day job and even though he is the amateur he’s decided to not pursue coaching and has been talking scenarios with poker playing friends Nam Le and Tommy Le. *“The only time I’ve taken off of work was to play in a couple of local tournaments, Legends at the Bicycle Casino which I finished in 34th place and I played at a Bellagio event where I busted out the last level of the first day. ”* He know that he’s been shown on ESPN as the amateur as well and finds it flattering that they pitch him in that light and hope to influence and inspire others like Soi to play the WSOP.

The new face of Fein energy drink, John Racener, hasn’t been getting much sleep these days, but is it energy drink overload? I would probably guess the answer would be all the nerves, excitement, and build up surrounding the 2010 World Series of Poker Main Event final table happening in less than 24 hours. *“I’m extremely excited, I don’t really feel nervous or anything because this is what I do. It’s just something that I’m used to doing, playing poker; obviously it’s the biggest stage I’ll ever be on. I’ve had visions and dreams about hands at the final table, I’m thinking about it 24/7.

The most recognizable face at the table without a doubt is Michael ‘The Grinder’ Mizrachi. We’ve known the Grinder for quite some time in the poker world but he’s had an exceptional 2010 World Series of Poker and is still in the running for WSOP Player of the Year. The Mizrachi brothers all cashed the Main Event and were a focus of the ESPN broadcast until one of the four brothers and the biggest name remaining actually had a chance to make the November Nine.   *“It was the Main Event so a lot of the coverage was on me and I just watched myself to see what I did right and wrong.
