Money Farha
The WSOP announced today that they're creating a "made for TV" event for the 2011 WSOP featuring heads-up rematches from previous Main Events. The main attraction is Sam Farha against Chris Moneymaker in a replay of the match that started the poker boom in 2003. Other matches on the schedule are a rematch between Phil Hellmuth and Johnny Chan from the 1989 WSOP and a match that is to be determined by the fans. You can choose Chan vs.

The 2010 WSOP has finally wrapped up, or at least until November anyway.   We saw a lot of history made and big headline stories along the way.   I thought I would take a few moments to review some of the predictions I made a couple of days prior to the start of the Series. *Women Will Not Walk Away With Three Bracelets - Result: Push* Technically, I nailed this one based on the title, but I also said I thought that women would walk away with 2 bracelets including the Ladies Event.

WSOP Main Event Day 6 Update - Chan Gone, Bigger Stacks

J Chan 200x300
Day 6 has begun but not with a few fireworks. What will the day have in store for us? We started the day with 205 players left in the field, before the end of the day we will be under 100. Who will moving up the chip counts and who will be moving on with their lives? We have no clue what the schedule has in line for us today, could be 5 full levels, could play 4. Heck we could even stop sometime in the middle of the 3rd one if bustouts happen too fast.

WSOP Main Event Day 5 Update - Ladies, Johnny, and The Brothers

Only 7. 8% of the original 7,319 players that started the Main Event this year have survived the first four days of play - 574 for those of you that care to not do the math. Jack Effel has estimated that we will lose at least half of that today and have around 275 players left after the four levels have been finished. We will be here all day to gather up the stories of the day.

WSOP Day 38 Second Update - TOC Finally Over, Daniel Alaei Wins 3rd Bracelet, and the Circus is Coming!!

It has been a very interesting, and late, night at the 2010 World Series of Poker. Four events were underway tonight, but only half of them completed. Huck Seed won the Tournament of Champions and Daniel Alaei won his 3rd career bracelet. *Tournament of Champions Grind Finally Over* While many pros did their typical "thank you for the opportunity" speech at the end of the event, the one word that stuck out before the final table began was #clusterfuck.
