WSOP Main Event Day 1c Update – Hellmuth Makes His Grand Entrance, and the Curse of the Feature Table

UB Dancers 430x286
Feels like groundhog day here at the WSOP today, all the reporters are over writing up day one information and nothing exciting is happening. Well Hellmuth did make his standard entrance to the Main Event today, with some minor technical difficulties. *Helmuth Fights Way Into Amazon Room* What would a WSOP Main Event be without Phil Helmuth making some type of grand entrance, or cry for attention (you be the call). This year was no different from the years past, with him actually having a stage pulled up to the entrance of the conference center here at the Rio for a brief show before he finally arrived.

The Poker World Wants to See Mike Matusow Naked

8 May 2010 , By: compncards
Mike Naked 313x300
A few weeks back, WSOP VP Ty Stewart made a bold prediction that three women would win bracelets in open events.   With the recent success of women in major events, there is a good chance that this could come to fruition.   Mike Matusow isn’t so keen on the idea.   Mike has made the claim that if three women win bracelets, he will run down the strip naked.
