Day 15 at the 2010 WSOP has kicked off with the $1,000 Ladies World Championship. While there five other events that will either kick off or resume a little later today, right now the ladies are getting all of the attention. *No Boys Allowed* A trend that has been popping up all around the country is men entering women’s events. The WSOP Ladies 2010  is no exception.

A lot of action is going on here tonight at the Rio. The $1,000 NL Holdem Event is heads-up between Steven Gee and Matthew Vance. The $1,500 NL Six-Handed Event is down to its final four players. The $5,000 NL is just about the bubble period.

Day 8 of the WSOP rolls right along. Event #8 is down to their final table, unfortunately without Phil Hellmuth as he busted out in 15th. The $1,500 Pot-Limit Event is down to three tables and steadily working to the final table. The $10,000 Stud World Championship is down to 43 players and it is highly unlikely they will play to a final table tonight.

The Hottest Woman in Poker According to Maxim is....Seriously?

I used to have some respect for Maxim, but after the recent article, I have to wonder.   While it is true that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, I just don't get how Maxim can claim that Tiffany Michelle is the hottest woman in poker.   Charlie River, did you get a gig moonlighting at Maxim? TwoPlusTwo forum posters are probably the harshest in the world, but they do prove a point.   She isn't all that terribly hot.

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.

WSOP Predictions Revisited

15 July 2009 , By: compncards

With the Main Event winding down, I though it would be a good time to go back and look at my predictions that I made prior to the WSOP and see how they went: Prediction 1: Phil Hellmuth will get his 12th bracelet. To quote on of my friend’s younger sister, “Epic Fail!” Hellmuth did not even make a final table. While he did cash five times, including the Main Event, he just could not put it together late to make the final table. Prediction 2: Scotty Nguyen will not win $4 Million but he will win another bracelet.
