I'm not a normal poker scenester so you won't catch me at many of the charity events, unless there's a hefty open bar, I'm working, or both. However last week Power Balance, the new performance enhancing bracelet company, threw a charity tournament at Drais in the W Hotel Hollywood and I was asked to help with stats on the final table. The W Hotel is amazing and Drais is much different than the after hours club I'm used to in Vegas. The table was set and quickly loads of celebs and poker pros filled the rooftop lounge.

Day 34 at the 2010 WSOP is moving right along with final tables in both the $1,000 NL, the $1,500 NL, and the $5,000 PLO.   Robert Mizrachi is in the PLO.   Otherwise, there aren't a lot of big names in the other final tables.  The high profile event of the day is the $25,000 Six-Handed NL Event.

Day 1 of the $5k NLH made for some interesting action. We had a lot of known players in the field, most of them sitting at the same table! Here is a bit of fun from the heaviest table in the field. [youtube]http://www. youtube.

While the number 13 may be unlucky for many, for some here today at the World Series of Poker, 13 will prove to be lucky indeed.   Day 13 of the 2010 WSOP is underway with four events having already hit the felt.   The $1,000 NL Holdem from the weekend is on the secondary final table.   The $1,500 Six-Handed NL is down to its final seven players, just one shy of the final.

10k Stud 8 Bustout Hand 200x300
There’s a lot of action going on here at Day 12 of the WSOP. The $5,000 NL Holdem Event kicked off at noon with an all-star type field. I went over to take some pictures of the event and in just the first few tables I got pictures of Hellmuth, Ivey, Negreanu, Obrestad, Ferguson, David Williams, Jason Mercier, and Jennifer Tilly. Also, the $1,500 Six-Handed NL event is in Day 2 and the $10,000 Stud 8 Event is playing down to the final table.

Phil Hellmuth is a cash game genius, T. J. Clouiter wins consistently at craps, and Kathy Liebert is the top pro on Full Tilt Poker.   After my last few days of playing online, I am convinced that the prior statements are indeed true as I think I have officially moved into bizarro world.
