Murder at the LAPT

3 June 2010 , By: Melissa Castello
Joran van der Sloot, the main suspect in the Natalee Holloway murder, is now wanted in connection with the murder of a young Peruvian girl which happened over the weekend, exactly 5 years to the day. The news is breaking worldwide today and it is being said that van der Sloot was in Peru for a poker tournament. The girl was found in his hotel room in Lima, Peru and there is video footage of the victim and suspect at the Atlantic City Casino where Poker Stars Latin America Poker Tour is being held. Many of the reporting sites are calling him a poker player saying he's been traveling the poker circuit and was planning to attend the LAPT stops.

WSOP Coverage Day 6 - Nolan Dalla's Prop Bet Epic Fail

Day 6 of the WSOP is plugging right along. The final table of both the $1,000 and $1,500 NL Holdem are both underway. One of the final tables is on the feature table right in front of the media booth and the rail is rather close to the tables that are still playing the six-handed event. The reason I mention this is that there has been an extended discussion between two of the Harrah’s staff members about the rail.

WSOP Day 6 - Mizrachi Wins First Bracelet

It’s Day 6 already? Other than the fact that my legs ache, it doesn’t really seem like that it has been six days since the WSOP has started. Clearly that is the case because the $50,000 Player’s Championship concluded last night. Michael Mizrachi came back from a big hole to take the most coveted prize at the WSOP outside of the Main Event. If you would have told me at the beginning that a Mizrachi would win this event, I would have said “Robert Mizrachi?” I would have laughed at you if you said that Michael would win.

Nicaragua 2010 014 400x300
Yikes so in the last 30 days that has been my schedule! LA to Denver to Vegas and back home, pack, Houston to Nicaragua and back home again to pack and head to the WSOP. I'm getting a late start on Vegas but the Nicaragua trip was well worth it. Nicaragua was my first non-poker related trip in almost 3 years! Aside of course from a weekend home to visit fam or friends. What do I do while in Nicaragua? Surf, volcano board, eat $8 lobster, drink $1 beers, and of course find the biggest poker fanatics in the country and play in their home game.

I wish that I could tell you that it has been an exciting evening here at the 2010 World Series of Poker. Granted, there has been a lot of great poker going on, but there really hasn’t been any off the wall stories to tell. The $50,000 Poker Player’s Championship is now in the money. Andy Bloch was the first player to bust after the bubble burst.

Some days at the WSOP are slower than others. This happens to be one of them. While it is true that there are four tournaments going on, that doesn’t always mean that there are lots of interesting things going on. Day 2 of both Event #3 and Event #4 are underway.
