About the only way you are probably going to win any money off of Phil Ivey at the present is via prop bets, and that isn’t looking too good. According to an article from PokerNews. com, Ivey is in line to win Millions if he is able to take down the Main Event. Tom Dwan will lose $1 Million if Ivey wins the Main Event.

Thang Luu went from being a two time bracelet winner to an utter idiot. In a story that I just heard about thanks to another website, apparently Thang Luu got himself banned from Harrah's for breaking a dealer's hand. From the reports I have read, Luu and another player were in a pot until showdown. The other player stated that he could not see Luu's cards.

The Last Woman Standing

Am I the only person that is getting tired of the whole "last woman standing" bit at major poker tournaments and at the World Series of Poker? Leo Margets is the latest in a long line of "last women standing" from the Main Event of the World Series of Poker. If this was the 1970's and 1980's when the number of women players was miniscule compared to the number of men playing, then maybe I could see doing this. Now, I am not so sure that this is helpful to poker. Granted, I know WHY that it is done.

Ivey Makes the November Nine

You know Jeffrey Pollack and the WSOP officials are doing the snoopy dance right now as Phil Ivey has made the November Nine. In addition, the final table boasts a couple of other pros that give this final table some credibility for once. Of course, anyone that followed Day 8 action knows that Ivey has dropped down to the 3rd shortest stack by the time that play reached the final table. However, Ivey is perfectly capable of rebounding from a short stack.

WSOP Predictions Revisited

With the Main Event winding down, I though it would be a good time to go back and look at my predictions that I made prior to the WSOP and see how they went: Prediction 1: Phil Hellmuth will get his 12th bracelet. To quote on of my friend’s younger sister, “Epic Fail!” Hellmuth did not even make a final table. While he did cash five times, including the Main Event, he just could not put it together late to make the final table. Prediction 2: Scotty Nguyen will not win $4 Million but he will win another bracelet.
