Celebs want to be poker players and poker players want to be celebs. Jennifer Elise Cox, best known for her work in the 1995 Brady Bunch movie, said she thinks the poker world is more glamorous than Hollywood.  Not sure if I agree with that statement but working in the media I know there are some poker divas out there. *Ray Romano* *David Allen Grier* Busto Day 2a *Hank Azaria* Still in! Day 2b *Bruce Buffer* Still in! Day 2b *Jason Alexander* Alive and kicking! Day 2b *The rest of the busto celebs:* Trishelle Cannatella, Jennifer Elise Cox, Sara Underwood, Shannon Elizabeth, and Emmitt Smith.

In exciting news, day 2s are just as boring and mundane as day 1s. Not much is going on here besides the random "All In and Call" being yelled by the dealers ever couple of seconds that keeps us awake on press row. *Scottie Nguyen Baby, and Johnny "Fucking" Chan* Baby this.

We have finally reached day 2, after four day 1s I was starting to feel like it was never going to end. Today 2,412 players returned to the Amazon and Pavilion Rooms at the Rio to continue their pursuit of the most coveted prize in poker, the Main Event bracelet. *Schedule Change Once Again* Stop me when you have heard this before. Once again today at the WSOP we have had another schedule change.

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.

WSOP Commentary: Poker and Morality

7 July 2010 , By: compncards
John Bonetti 430x285
For a few weeks now, I have been pondering poker and morality. While some believe that the two are mutually exclusive of each other, it has become quite evident what crimes are unforgivable. *Abuse Can Be Overlooked* Some of you may remember my memories of John Bonetti and how I have said in the past he has reminded me of my grandfather. Well, one thing that John and my grandfather shared was a fiery temper.
