Brad Daugherty's Bracelet Doesn't Sell - Again

Daughtery Bracelet 430x286
I just read that 1991 WSOP Main Event Champ Brad Daugherty failed to sell his bracelet yet again on eBay. He tried to do so in December of last year and it failed to sell. This time, bids went up to $28,100 and yet it didn't meet whatever reserve he put on the bracelet. The first thought that came to my head is "What the fuck?" The bracelet is worth maybe $3k, if that, if you melted it down for scrap gold.

November Nine WSOP 430x285
The 2011 World Series of Poker Main Event has finally reached the November Nine. I stayed with the coverage until we got to 10 players, but I had to get some sleep so I missed John Hewitt's bustout in 10th place. Regardless, here are your November Nine: *Martin Staszko* - Chip Leader - 40. 17 Million:  Stasko is one of the unknowns at this final table.

ESPN3 402x300
Day 3 of the 2011 WSOP is currently underway and the big story doesn't center around one person but the fact that for the first time in WSOP history, the Main Event is actually being broadcast live on ESPN3. com and ESPN 2 television. I followed the coverage earlier in the day on ESPN3. com and at present I am following along on ESPN 2.

Lisa Hamilton 430x286
Day 2 of the 2011 WSOP Main Event[[sitetree_link,id=597]] is currently underway. The Day 1a and 1c fields combined to make a field of 2,031 players that returned to the Rio earlier today. One of those players that started the day just barely above her initial starting stack was Lisa Hamilton. Since that point, Hamilton has been on a monster tear and is currently sitting with 188,000 in chip at the time I write this blog.
