Day 22 of the 2010 World Series of Poker is underway and both the Pavilion and the Amazon Room are hopping today. The Seniors Event kicked off at noon and has pretty much overpowered both rooms. In addition, we had Day 2 of both the $5,000 NL Six-Handed and ½ PL Holdem ½ PL Omaha Event grinding away. The final two tables are working towards a bracelet and the $1,500 H.

The WSOP rolls on and our two final tables are clicking along. The PLO Final is down to five players with Miguel Proulx the current chip leader. The $10,000 Limit Holdem Championship started with Michael Mizrachi, David Chiu, and Brock Parker, but all of them have dropped by the wayside leaving Matt Keikoan the leader with 4 players left. The $1,500 NL is playing to the final table, or such is the play.

WSOP Commentary - Why the Pros Are Winning Again

Jennifer Harman 183x300
I started playing at the World Series of Poker in 2006. Back then, we were still pre-UIGEA and amateurs were practically dominating all of the fields. A few select pros would win events, but for the most part, the chirping from the pros was that “the fields are too massive and €œbuy-ins needed to be raised. However, times were a changing.

Day 18 of the 2010 WSOP kicked off with the $2,500 NL Holdem 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.

WSOP Deflated and Outdated? Not So Much

WSOP Champion 330x300
Charlie River made a post earlier today entitled WSOP Deflated and Outdated. 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 WSOP’s. *Everyman Poker is Becoming Pro Paradise* First, Charlie contends that the WSOP has become everyman'€™s supermarket of poker. While there is some merit in that statement, that argument would hold more weight three years ago more so than it does now.

Shaun Deeb WSOP Ladies Event Statement

2 13 June 2010 , By: Melissa Castello
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.
