For those of you that don't remember or don't follow the EPL, Divita won a seat into the second EPL Main Event but was refused entry because of being a registered sex offender in California.

Norman Chad
Before I begin, let me state that I like Norman Chad. While we are not friends, the few times we have either played together or interacted, he has been a good guy. With that said, what the hell were you thinking Norm? We know that your comic bits is part of your overall sportscaster gimmick, but most comedians know when to draw the line. Clearly you don't.

Roadhouse
Two days down, two to go here in Tunica. Got here last night and headed over to Harrah’s Tunica to check things out. The Seniors’ event was well in swing and I ended up playing a single-table satellite. Did well early on but lost a key flip about mid-way to get crippled.

Ivey Money
Hear that faint crying in the distance? That’s the sound of the collective poker world weeping for their bankrolls as Phil Ivey just proved that he indeed is NOT the Tiger Woods of Golf. Ivey just won the Aussie Millions $250k Super High Roller after taking most of 2011 off. With his $2 Million win, Ivey takes over #2 on the All-Time Money List behind Erik “Can I do another Micros episode so I can win more money” Seidel. I could go the cliché route and talk about how Ivey proved yet again that he is the best poker player of all-time, but Ivey’s bankroll is doing the talking for him.
