Dream Team Poker Reception Party

Pretty sure we were literally the last to register last night at the Dream Team Poker reception party, we still were able to speak with a few of the big names in attendance. Below is our first vlog from the event.

Follow The Entities at Dream Team Poker This Weekend

We'll be light on posts the next few days and heavy on twitters. Or tweets. Whatever.

The post lightness is due to our participation in Dream Team Poker this Saturday (and hopefully Sunday). We'll be actively updating our twitter feed you see at right during the event. We'll also have some vlogs on RawVegas.tv from the reception Friday eve and tourney Saturday. 

That's all we got. Sign up to follow us on twitter here.

And below is pretty much what will be going through our heads during the entirety of the tournament. Not even remotely kidding, btw, but you probably already knew that.

Introducing Our New Official Pick to Win It: Howard Lederer

Howard-lederer Last week or maybe two weeks ago we announced that we were retiring Huck Seed as our "Official Pick to Win It."TM

For those new to the site, we've basically been picking Huck Seed to win every major event (WSOP Main Event, NBC Heads Up, $50k H.O.R.S.E.) for the past four years, save the 2008 World Series of Poker Main Event when we randomly switched to Chino Rheem.

Now that Huck has captured his big trophy, it's time to move on and annoit a new "Official Pick to Win It."

We offered a hint last week or possibly two weeks ago that had absolutely nothing to do with who we were going to select. Most of you thought we were going with Patrik Antonius. That wouldn't have been a bad choice. However, we feel like there is someone more due, more deserving, more ready to pop back up from under the radar and claim a major crown. So our new OPTWITM is none other than Howard Lederer.

When we told Howard of this, he responded by saying:

"I'm thrilled to be your guy. Hopefully it won't take long for me to justify your pick."

Not only are we confident of Howard coming through for us, we're also particularly pleased to add the term "chip lederer" to our lexicon and will use it liberally whenever Bub is near the top of the leaderboard.

Stay tuned...

Las Vegas Hottie of the Month Kimber Ngo

Watch Kimber Ngo - RawVegas.tv Girl of the Month on RawVegas.tv

RawVegas.tv continues their search for Las Vegas hottest girl, this month spinning the wheel and landing on Kimber Ngo.

If you're into the A's, then you'll probably be a big Kimber fan. This one isn't as tame as last month's girl-next-door-hot Dana Lauren, but it's also not as "hey-here's-my-crotch-in-the-face" fantastic as Francine Dee either. Click thumbnails for larger image. Not that you didn't know how to do that already.

Scotty Nguyen to Win $4M at 2009 WSOP or Quit Poker

Just found this in our archives from 2007. See if you can spot the two things that stood out to us in this pic.

Maybe he's drinking again or maybe he's just feeling it because he's Scotty Nguyen, baby, but in the below video, the Prince of Poker (<--seriously how did he get that nickname?) claims that if he does not win $4 million during the 2009 WSOP, he's going to quit poker.

We're not math majors, but basically that means Scotty needs to win the $50k H.O.R.S.E. again plus the new $40k NLH event, or finish first or second in the Main Event. Ok.

In related news, this.

Girl On Girl: Michele Lewis Interviews Vanessa Rousso

Vanessa-rousso-bikini The following is WCP contributor Michele Lewis' latest interview in her "Girl on Girl" series featuring interviews with some of the hottest girls in poker.

Vanessa Rousso isn’t just hot, she’s smokin’ hot, looks hot in a bikini and lately… she’s tournament hot. Well, hot if you consider defeating poker legends Doyle Brunson, Phil Ivey and Daniel Negreanu all in one weekend.  Seriously, how many people can say that?  Not to mention her recent WPT seventh place finish, GoDaddy commercial and some random magazine men like called Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue.

Just to beat anyone to the punch, Rousso isn’t running around claiming to be a model.  In fact, she’s quick to admit that the Sports Illustrated Issue was intimidating as hell, especially when given three weeks to get in shape.  Furthermore, Rousso has no problem talking about the PokerStars bikini spot, as she’s happy to see poker being viewed more as a sport.

Besides, let’s be honest… it’s not really a big deal she was in Sports Illustrated because female poker players and the girlfriends/wives of male poker players are always asked to pose for the Swimsuit Edition. Ok, not really.  Point being, someone asked her vs. asking a poker playing celebrity like… Paris Hilton.  So, with Rousso sizzling up the poker scene, I got her to confess her alma mater, latest streak (like a Frank the Tank streak) and as I always ask… who she thinks is hot.

Michele Lewis:  Vanessa, so far this year you’ve been in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition, signed a deal with GoDaddy.com, still a star player on team PokerStars and won second in the NBC National Heads-Up Championship.  That’s great and all, but come on… you must be ecstatic to be the new Girl on Girl... woman.  So, how does it feel?

This Is Confusing


After a long lay-off, Eminem is ready to drop a new album, Relapse. Hopefully it's not a relapse into rhyming about how your mom is a bitch and wife is crazy, cause that shit gets old and kind of silly once you approach 40. But anyway, he was in Las Vegas recently taking promotional pics for the album with Dr. Dre and 50 Cent.

Quick tangent, but when the hell is Dre releasing a new album? Put The Chronic in right now and listen to how well it stands up. Also listen to it because if you think we're sexist, holy shit. And is any rapper more overrated than 50 Cent? If Dre hadn't produced "In Da Club" would anyone even know who he is? Dre even made Nate Dogg sound cool with his "smoke weed every day" line at the end of "The Next Episode." You try singing that line and sound cool. It's not easy. Dre is a miracle worker. Somebody needs to put him on The EconomyTM. U.S. America would be kicking it post-WWII style in about six months. Barack Obama needs to get on that, stat. They probably already know each other too, so it shouldn't be hard.

Anyway, the above photo is kind of confusing. Interscope released it saying that it's (obviously) a pic of the guys playing high stakes cards from Em's first video off Relapse.

However, they're clearly playing blackjack. So why does Em look like he's about to ship his chips all-in style to the center? Does that explain Dre and Fiddy's quizzical looks?

Read about the shoot here. And for old time's sake, watch "Dre Day" here.

UltimateBet Hijacks UFC Sponsorship from Full Tilt Poker

The UFC appears to be turning its back on Full Tilt Poker.

For the MMA fans out there: if you follow the UFC, you've probably noticed Full Tilt Poker logos and patches increasingly taking over the octagon.

Looks like that's coming to an end, at least for a little while.

The UFC today informed some of its business associates (and fighter managers) that Full Tilt Poker is banned from appearing on fighter's trunks, corners, or in the octagon itself.

With the amount of money FTP was dumping into the UFC, some other company had to be taking its place, right? The UFC had to get some sort of a better offer, you'd think.

And where did it come from?


Wow. Really? No. Seriously?

The Entities to Enter Dream Team Poker This Saturday

We tried to get half Filipina, half Puerto Rican model Justene Jaro as a last minute fill in for Snake, but a little thing called a "restraining order" got in the way. Apparently it's illegal to stand outside someone's window with your pants around your ankles every day for a week. Whatever. View more (some NSFW) photos of Jaro here.

Not sure how it's happened so quickly, but Dream Team Poker seems to be building some pretty big buzz. So...the Entities who compromise Wicked Chops Poker are entering the fray to find out what the big deal is.

Chops, The Addict, and (filling in for Snake) special guest Entity Jason Calacanis (bio here) are forming Team Wicked Chops for this weekend's DTP stop at Caesar's Palace.

The basic gist of Dream Team Poker is each group ponies up a collective $1,500 to compete in a traditional no limit tourney. The team with the best wins. So if you donk off your chips early, you're not out yet, as you can root on the rest of your team and still win.

We'll be going up against defending champs Team Bluff (???), Team Yo Mama (Tiffany Michelle, Maria Ho and Lacey Jones) and Team Favorites (Phil Hellmuth, Mike "The Mouth" Matusow, and Los Angeles Lakers owner Jerry Buss), among others.

This tour stop actually sold out already, so you'll have to wait until the next one to enter your own team.

More to come...but look for updates on WCP later this week and when the event kicks off on Saturday at noon PST. Read more about this weekend's event here and check out the DTP website here.

American Idol Bikini Girl Katrina Darrell Might Do Playboy

Watch Katrina Bikini Girl Darrell Host Hawaiian Tropic Zone Party


We're American Idol junkies. We've never been shy about that. Last thing you want to do right now is start a convo with an Entity about anything relating to Danny Gokey (total douchebag), Scott MacIntyre's [lack of] singing ability, the premature booting of Alexis Grace, or how the judges seem to be rigging this season a bit.

Anyway, we posted pics of American Idol "Bikini Girl" Katrina Darrell back during the audition episodes, and she was in Las Vegas last night to host a party, and above (or here) is the interview. So if you're into pretty flawless female bodies or are an AI junkie too, worth a view. Plus it sounds like she's gonna do Playboy. Nothing like stretching that 15 minutes as long as you can with a little nudity. Win-win for us all.
