WSOP Main Event: It must be nice...

It must be nice to be ElkY. On day four of the Main Event of the World Series of Poker, the Frenchman -- Bertrand Grospellier, to the uninitiated -- arrived three minutes late to the Amazon Room, sat down in the big blind and found pocket threes.

WSOP Main Day: End of the longest days

There's a group of people who believe the ancient Mayans predicted the world would end on one particular day (December 21, 2012 to be precise). These believers are preparing for End Times as we speak. As that date is less than two years away, we have an idea. We suggest we play Day 1 of the WSOP eve...more

WSOP Main Event: The second half of day one

Walking through the hallway of the Rio as the last level of the day got underway, We've gotta get out of this place by the Animals belted out over the PA system, a poignant escort perhaps to those who had fallen in what has been a busy day 1c.
