Day 15 at the 2010 WSOP has kicked off with the $1,000 Ladies World Championship. While there five other events that will either kick off or resume a little later today, right now the ladies are getting all of the attention. *No Boys Allowed* A trend that has been popping up all around the country is men entering women’s events. The WSOP Ladies 2010  is no exception.

WSOP Day 14 Update #2 - Drunk Singing & A Trickett Wonderland

11 June 2010 , By: Melissa Castello

It's been a pretty mellow day at the WSOP today, aside from the rowdy $5k final table. $1,500 PLO and $1,500 7-card Stud both had starts today, $10k 2-7 Lowball is down to 3 tables, $2k limit is down to 2 tables and the $5k NLH is at the final table with the largest rail to date. Sitting in media row we are forced to listen to drunken fools singing a badly butchered version of the Beatles 'Yellow Submarine'. I assume this will only get worse as Jeff Williams acquires more chips and his fans acquire more booze!  We also can hear Sam Tricketts crew, a bunch of drunk Brits whistling tunes after being hushed from singing 'Walking in a Trickett Wonderland'.

Can't Wait to Play!

Tomorrow is the $1k Ladies No Limit Hold 'em event here at the Rio and I'm all registered and ready to play! Last year when I played the ladies tournament I started off great doubling up first level with AA vs AK on a K high board and winning a few other pots here and there until late level 2 when my table broke and I got moved to the worst seat in the Amazon room.   I was seat 6 and to my left was a horrendous woman who played any two and I can see why since she was the luckiest person in the world. When I'm at the table I have a hard time sitting still, which I know bothers some people but I cant help it. I'm also about 5'2 so I find it easier to see the table if I sit on my knees.

Day 1 of the $5k NLH made for some interesting action. We had a lot of known players in the field, most of them sitting at the same table! Here is a bit of fun from the heaviest table in the field. [youtube]http://www. youtube.

While the number 13 may be unlucky for many, for some here today at the World Series of Poker, 13 will prove to be lucky indeed.   Day 13 of the 2010 WSOP is underway with four events having already hit the felt.   The $1,000 NL Holdem from the weekend is on the secondary final table.   The $1,500 Six-Handed NL is down to its final seven players, just one shy of the final.
