WSOP Day 12 Update - Bubbles, American Pie, and a Green Lantern Sighting
Thereâs a lot of action going on here at Day 12 of the WSOP. The $5,000 NL Holdem Event kicked off at noon with an all-star type field. I went over to take some pictures of the event and in just the first few tables I got pictures of Hellmuth, Ivey, Negreanu, Obrestad, Ferguson, David Williams, Jason Mercier, and Jennifer Tilly. Also, the $1,500 Six-Handed NL event is in Day 2 and the $10,000 Stud 8 Event is playing down to the final table.
I See Your Bubble, and Raise You a Russian
I headed over to the $10,000 Stud 8 event to take pictures of the final two tables. We lost one as I was getting through the 2nd table of pics, and as such we were hand for hand. For some people, I have been the kiss of death during this WSOP. (Howard Lederer is an example who has busted twice when I have shown up to take his picture.) Anywho, as I am taking the picture of the last table, Alexander Dovzhenko was all-in. He then proceeds to lose when Christopher George catches a flush against Dovzhenkoâs pair of queens. Here is the bustout hand at the river.
Everyone at that point is in the money according to the World Series of Poker official rules, including Jennifer Harman. Here is a picture of her twitting to the world.
Bye Bye Ms. American Pie
The $5,000 NL Holdem Event kicked off at noon at the Amazon Room. As stated earlier, the field is a stacked one. For the amateurs in the field, a bad table draw can spell disaster and likely an early day 1 exit. Poor Shannon Elizabeth probably had the worst table draw you could imagine. Her table includes Dan Heimiller, Phil Hellmuth, Chris Ferguson, David Williams, Brandon Adams, Alex Bolotin, and Matt Brady. Sucks to be you right now Ms. Elizabeth. At least we got a shot of her before she busts.

Last night, I was here at the Rio until about 1:40 a.m. Late nights here at the Rio can get right damn chilly. Poor Jennifer Harman was freezing. She was wrapped in a scarf and before the end of play for the day; she had to wear a blanket. Here is a shot of her in a scarf, and some cleavage.
In brightest day, in darkest night, no evil shall escape my sight. Let those that rail this game tonight, beware his powerâ¦ Green Lanternâs Light!
