Six-Max Event. Later in the day, Day 2 of the $1,000 NL and
Day 3 of the $10,000 Omaha 8 or Better World Championship
resumed with the Omaha 8 or Better World Championship
playing out to the bracelet. However, this day for me was
all about the 5 P. M.
Ladies Event Recap
So I played and I went. I managed to last twice as long this
year than last and avoided any brawls with the women at my
table. YAY! That's a victory in itself. I can tell you it
was not the easy tournament I had imagined though.
WSOP Deflated and Outdated? Not So Much
Charlie River made a post earlier today entitled âWSOP
Outdated[http://www. pokerjunkie. com/poker-blog/wsop/wsop-deflated-and-outdated]. â
In it, he made a comments regarding how that he thought that
the WSOP should be conducted and I wanted to take a few
minutes to comment both as someone who has worked it the
last three years, and someone that has played in 4 out of
the last 5 WSOPâs.
WSOP Deflated and Outdated
*WSOP has become the IKEA of poker. Sell as many cheapish
events as possible to as many players as possible. *
Not so exclusive anymore
*From The Big One to a long crowded summer*
*Make it really expensive*
*Neither TV nor live stream?!*

Shaun Deeb WSOP Ladies Event Statement
This vid is a must see! I won't ruin anything by giving away
too much detail but I will fill you in on some background. Shaun Deeb entered and played the 2010 WSOP Ladies Event
dressed in drag. Shaun entered the event to prove a point
that segregated events should not be a part of the WSOP. He
did say he was dressed as a woman because he lost a prop bet
and bought out after the first break, coming back sporting a
hat and tee straight from the gift shop.
