This year at the 2010 World Series of Poker has been dubbed with different “Year Of’s. ” I thought it was interesting to see how some of the “big stories” coming into the 2010 WSOP have been developing. *Year of the Woman* Coming into the WSOP, Ty Stewart made the prediction that 2 or 3 women would win open field WSOP events. Mike Matusow stated that if this happened, he would run naked down the strip.

Day 29 at the 2010 WSOP was a relative uneventful one. Two final tables are underway with the HORSE World Championship and the Event #42 $1,500 NL playing to completion tonight. The Mixed Holdem Event is playing to a final table while the $5,000 PLO Hi-Lo and the Event #45 $1,500 NL are in Day 1 action. *Smith and Pilgirm Poised to Make Mixed Holdem Final* The $2,500 Mixed Holdem Event is down to just 11 players and unless they make a monumental blunder and bust out early, both Gavin Smith and Dwyte Pilgrim will make the final table of this event.

WSOP Commentary: Duke - Negreanu Feud Becomes Reheated

It looks like the Annie Duke and Daniel Negreanu feud has become a little bit reheated. Many know about the incident that happened a few years ago where Daniel made some accusations against Duke that became a heated debate around the poker world. Daniel supposedly found “religion” and then apologized for the comments. *Liebert Speaks “The Truth”* A video posted by Amanda Leatherman on Youtube in recent month saw Kathy Liebert make some comments about the Duke-Negreanu “relationship” in poker that insinuated that he still hated Duke, but was “playing nice” for the sake of his image.
