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.

*888* fire pit in Vegas? girl in the bathroom *UB @ Mandarin Orange* sick views form the floor to ceiling windows at the party UB = Unlimited Booze 1 for Phil and 1 for his ego! Jeff Madsen lost his shirt to me and then his beer! Not sure what hurts worse, getting a tatt or getting a UB tatt.

WSOP Commentary: Poker and Morality

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.

Billy Kopp gets a long rub down by 5 lovely massage ladies while watching his buddy at the $3k triple chance final table. Another nearby massage is happening but this one is a bit unpleasant to see. [youtube]http://www. youtube.

Well we are back in the Amazon room today for another day 1 of the main event. This time we are on the 2nd, or rather b, day of day 1. Confused yet? Join the crowd, we had to stop counting how many days the series has been going cause we ran out of fingers and toes, maybe we can just start counting how many days are left. *Another day.

Don't tell anyone, but the Main Event started up today and all we have been able to focus on are the ladies. I mean it is Day 1 of a tournament, does anything really exciting ever happen on a Day 1? With that said, on with the ladies, oh and a short introduction for myself (I hacked compncards account and will be posting updates for the rest of the series in his place). *Tiffany Michelle sucks.

WSOP Day 38 Second Update - TOC Finally Over, Daniel Alaei Wins 3rd Bracelet, and the Circus is Coming!!

Howard Lederer 199x300
It has been a very interesting, and late, night at the 2010 World Series of Poker. Four events were underway tonight, but only half of them completed. Huck Seed won the Tournament of Champions and Daniel Alaei won his 3rd career bracelet. *Tournament of Champions Grind Finally Over* While many pros did their typical "thank you for the opportunity" speech at the end of the event, the one word that stuck out before the final table began was #clusterfuck.
