Brad Daugherty's Bracelet Doesn't Sell - Again

1 3 August 2011 , By: compncards
Daughtery Bracelet 430x286
I just read that 1991 WSOP Main Event Champ Brad Daugherty failed to sell his bracelet yet again on eBay. He tried to do so in December of last year and it failed to sell. This time, bids went up to $28,100 and yet it didn't meet whatever reserve he put on the bracelet. The first thought that came to my head is "What the fuck?" The bracelet is worth maybe $3k, if that, if you melted it down for scrap gold.

Full Tilt Hearing - I Told You So

Ivey 430x287
There is no other way to put this but to say, I told you so. I said weeks ago that if the Alderney Gambling Control Commission was to reinstate Full Tilt’s license that they would need to show that they are making significant process towards paying US players back. Guess what? That hasn’t happened. Oh, guess what else? The trial was adjourned until the middle of September.

Deep Thoughts with Compncards

The monkey eats custard. Why the monkey eats custard is beyond me. Perhaps he was tired of his typical diet of bananas and poo. Perhaps his stomach was upset after the Full Tilt – Alderney “hearing” yesterday.

2011 WSOP Main Event Day 8 - The November Nine is Set

21 July 2011 , By: compncards
November Nine WSOP 430x285
The 2011 World Series of Poker Main Event has finally reached the November Nine. I stayed with the coverage until we got to 10 players, but I had to get some sleep so I missed John Hewitt's bustout in 10th place. Regardless, here are your November Nine: *Martin Staszko* - Chip Leader - 40. 17 Million:  Stasko is one of the unknowns at this final table.

ESPN3 402x300
Day 3 of the 2011 WSOP is currently underway and the big story doesn't center around one person but the fact that for the first time in WSOP history, the Main Event is actually being broadcast live on ESPN3. com and ESPN 2 television. I followed the coverage earlier in the day on ESPN3. com and at present I am following along on ESPN 2.

Lisa Hamilton 430x286
Day 2 of the 2011 WSOP Main Event[[sitetree_link,id=597]] is currently underway. The Day 1a and 1c fields combined to make a field of 2,031 players that returned to the Rio earlier today. One of those players that started the day just barely above her initial starting stack was Lisa Hamilton. Since that point, Hamilton has been on a monster tear and is currently sitting with 188,000 in chip at the time I write this blog.

2011 WSOP Main Event Day 1b - Screw Poker - I'd Rather Be at 4-H Camp

9 July 2011 , By: compncards
4 H Camp 227x300
So the 2011 WSOP Main Event is currently in Day 1b and honestly, I don't give a damn about the event oday.   For most of this week until today I have been participating in the annual 4-H Camp I work at yearly, or as I will call it this year, the World Series of Ultimate Uno. What is Ultimate Uno?  You play the same rules as Uno, except for the fact that if you have multiples of a number or special card, you can play them all at the same time.   Also, if you get forced to draw 2 and you have a draw 2 card, you can lay it down and make the next person draw 4.

2011 WSOP Main Event Day 1 - Brunson Plays Day 1a

8 July 2011 , By: compncards
Doyle Day 1a 319x300
The 2011 WSOP Main Event officially kicked off on Thursday and contrary to his statement made on Twitter during the $50,000 Poker Player's Championship, Doyle was indeed in this one. In fact, Doyle even gave the customary "Shuffle Up and Deal" call to kick off the Main Event. How did this come to fruition? Apparently Dewey Tomko is the person that convinced him to play.  Doyle said on Twitter yesterday: TexDolly Stop it.
