Girls on the Rail

2009 WSOP Girl on the Rail - Let's Get It Started


Pretty slim pickings for Girls on the Rail at the $500 buy-in casino employees event today (i.e. no pros with lots of cash around). That will probably change with the $40,000 NLH tourney tomorrow.

We think this girl made an appearance last year, but we're not sure. Also pretty sure when she plays poker she usually has top pair.

Tiffany Michelle Gets Railed By Ho and a Porn Star Today

Maria Ho and Samantha Ryan at the 2008 WSOP

It's 'Girls Gone Deep' today with last year's last woman standing Maria Ho and porn star Samantha Ryan (on right) at the WSOP to rail Tiffany Michelle.

Poker hottie and The Last Woman StandingTM Tiffany Michelle may be rollercoasting it today in the chip department at the 2008 WSOP Main Event but she's kicking ass when it comes to hot chicks who are railing her. Among them, her hot lover/friend Maria Ho, who notably went the deepest of any female at last year's WSOP ME, and adult entertainer and model Samantha Ryan, who notably went the deepest of any female in flicks like Ass Fanatics, Meat My Ass #3 and Throat Gaggers.

More photos from today below.

Day 4 Action is Fast and Furious(TM)

Mark Vos (above, bottom left) is currently sucking the soul...and chips...out of his opponents.

People are exiting the Rio Amazon room like someone took a dump in the middle of the floor. You almost can't get them out of there fast enough. By the first break, we've already nearly 100 players.

Among the departed include Jean-Robert Bellande (who went out in dramatic fashion at the featured table, read about it on Tao of Poker), Iggy (same), and Jason Lester/Al Krux (same guy).

Some big movers & shakersTM on moving dayTM include poker pro Allen Cunningham, who moves up to third overall with 1,2M. Cunningham only trails the Mormony named duo of Jeremy Joseph Jingleheimer Schmidt his name is my name too (2,000,000) and Jeremiah Smith (1,480,000).

Also stacking up are Owen Crowe (1,200,000), Matt Matros (1,200,000), Gus Hansen (785,000), "Asian Tommy Lee" Tommy Le (764,000), and Mark Vos, a ginger (735,000).

Feature tabled Phil Hellmuth is also moving...but in the wrong he's down to 180,000.

The poker hotties (or as they like to be referred to, The Over One Percenters) still competing for the coveted (and trademarkedTMTM) The Last Woman StandingTM crown include Evelyn Ng (410,000), Maya Antonius (330,000), Tiffany Michelle (200,000), Carmel Petresco (160,000), and Kara Scott (150,000).

This Girl Is A Fan

"Our Bluff column brings all the girls to the rail. And they're like, it's better than yours. Damn right it's better than yours."

If we had HellmuthianTM*-sized egos we'd assume this hot girl on the rail was doing what every other hot girl does when they open an issue of Bluff Magazine, they go straight to the Wicked Chops Poker page, laugh uncontrollably and say to themselves "This is the best thing I've ever read in a poker magazine or any magazine period. I can't believe they write this stuff while sitting on the can. They're geniuses. I want to bang them."

But we're humble guys.

Truth be told, she was in fact reading our "7 Things to Absolutely Not do at the 2008 WSOP" in the June issue of Bluff, which you can read online here.

2008 WSOP Main Event Player Spotlight: Arnold Spee

Poker pro Arnold Spee is in this photo at the 2008 WSOP

Poker pro Arnold Spee, looking a bit like TJ Cookier sans glasses above, is today's player spotlight.

Throughout the 2008 WSOP Main Event, we're introducing you to poker players you may not know already who are doing well, or you may have forgotten, or for some reason caught our photographers eyes. Today we're featuring Arnold Spee, who's currently stacked at about what he started with on Day 1 so he's probably the "All In and a Call" we just heard on the tournament floor. Good look Arnie.

From Agoura Hills, Calif., Spee bursted onto the poker scene back in March 2005 when he won the WPT World Poker Challenge in Reno, besting a final table that included Phil Ivey and Blair Rodman.

Spee is really tall.

Day 2A Table of Death?

Chau Giang, Cute Chick, Mark Vos and Hoyt Corkins (l. to r. above) on Day 2A of the Main Event.

Day 2A of the 2008 WSOP Main Event has been short on big name big stack players but late in the day over at Orange Table #35 we have perhaps the most intriguing line-up of notable pros seated together. Or maybe not. We haven't been really paying attention.

Chau Chiang and Hoyt Corkins are both stacked just over 160k and Mark Vos, a ginger, has soul-stole his way to 184k.

Erick Lindgren's WSOP Comes to an End, 'Friends and Family' Guy Has Half a Mil


For all we know this guy on the right could be Brian Schaedlich, the current chipleader.

In big-name big news 2008 WSOP Player of the Year Erick Lindgren just saw his redunkulous 2008 World Series of Poker come to an end after the dinner break on Day 2A. Our live reporter was on hand to witness the hand E-Dog busted out on and here's how it went down: Lindgren played a hand and ended up getting all of his chips in before it was over and he lost.

In no-name big news a guy who his friends and family call Brian Schaedlich and everyone else refers to as "hey you" is the first player to cross the half a million mark, or about 3% of what the average chip stack will be at the final table in November. Just in case he Jamie Golds this tournament we'll mention his name again. It's Brian Schaedlich, and apparently he qualified via a $135 satellite.

THO Girl Is Back On The Rail


Known internally around here as the Official 2008 WSOP THO girl, our most prolific railbird of this year's world series returned today to rail some dude one table over from Thor Hansen. We learned a little more about her from a trusty source of ours. Apparently she's a dancer over at Treasures on the weekend and works at Diablo's Cantina during the week. Based on the shirt she's wearing above, the latter seems true. As for the former, we'll look into it this Friday night.

Maria Ho and Her Hoes at the 2008 WSOP Main Event

Hi girls, we're Wicked Chops Poker. Pretty sure we've met before in a fantasy of ours.

The Last Woman Standing at the 2007 WSOP Main EventTM Maria Ho did a stellar job getting our attention today when she showed up with an entourage of railbirds that included three of her hot friends (pictured above) and her super hot sister Judy (not above but on the right in this pic). Calling themselves Maria's Hoes, the four of them were decked out in tummy-bearing tees that read "I Heart Maria Ho" and on their backsides a tiny, well-placed Bodog patch you can get nice look at here.

2008 WSOP Day 1C: Henning Granstad Is The Chip Leader

Max Pescatori is somewhere in this photo at 2008 WSOP

Max Pescatori (bottom with headphones) was one of the many big names who departed us on Day 1C at the 2008 WSOP.

We've covered Day 1C of the 2008 WSOP Main Event ad naseum at this point, and we have some big news to break, so we'll keep this post brief.

Henning Granstad ended the day as chip leader stacked at 228,000. While we have no idea who this so-called "Henning" is, he does have two cashes so far this year.

Among some of the big name big stacks making it to Day 2 include David Singer (128,000), Brad "Yukon" Booth (110,000), Evelyn Ng (104,000), Nenad Medic (91,000), Jeff Madsen (85,000), Isabelle Mercier, or as we like to now call her, "Va Va Va Voom" (58,000), seriously Chris Moneymaker (62,000), Liz Lieu, a woman (57,000), Poker News hottie Tiffany Michelle, a woman (49,000), Mike "The Mouth" Matusow (48,000), Shawn Sheikhan (42,000), Archie Karas (40,000), that guy who played with his foot from a few years ago William Rockwell (30,000), Poker News editor-in-chief John Caldwell (18,400), and the hottest girl in poker Lacey Jones (17,000).

2008 WSOP Update: Day 1C is More Like It

Lacey Jones and Christina Lindley at 2008 WSOP

Poker's hottest girl Lacey Jones (photo above, on left) is among the many wildly more interesting runners alive and thriving on Day 1C.

Now we're talking. 2008 WSOP Day 1C has 1,928 entrants and plenty of star power.

And hot girls.

So much better. Day 1C Kicks Day 1A and 1B's AssTM.

At dinner break, the chip leader is probably Michael Martin with 98,800. Plenty of big names (and big name women) remaining among the chip leaders, including Brad "Yukon" Booth (90,000), Clonie Gowen, a woman, (77,000), Jeff Madsen (72,000), seriously Chris Moneymaker (67,500), Evelyn Ng, a woman, (63,000), and Sorel Mizzi (61,000).

Lacey Jones, who was rail'd today by Christina Lindley and rocking a sweet pair of gold Skully Candy's, is also still alive with around 19,300.

Sadly, many have departed us as well, including Marco Traniello, Joe Tehan, whose name sounds too much like "Tehran" for our liking, Justin Bonomo, Max Pescatori, and our pick to win it, Huck Seed. Get full chip counts here.

2008 WSOP Day 1B Update: Robert Mizrachi, Erick Lindgren Among Chip Leaders

2008 WSOP Main Event railbird

Robert Mizarchi and Erick Lindgren are somewhere in the Rio Amazon Room at the 2008 WSOP.

It'll be an interesting day. With turn-out a little under expectation for Days 1A and 1B of the 2008 WSOP Main Event, everyone is hoping for a strong surge of registrants this weekend. Actually, that's not very interesting at all.

A little more than half the starting field survived play yesterday, with 615 poker players moving on to Day 2. A couple of "some guys" are big stacked, with Ben Sarnoff (177,500) and Brian Schaedlich (160,725) atop the leaderboard.

Of the pros who have formally formed a consurtium of sorts to pile-drive home The Year of the ProTM, The Grinder's bro Robert Mizrachi is among the big stacks with 142,400. Other pros still in pursuit include the wildly underrated until we keep saying that and make him overrated Alex Balandin, oh wait never mind we're thinking of Alex Bolotin (109,925), Erick Lindgren (92,325), Barny Boatman (80,600), the blind guy from last year Hal Lubarsky (70,700), Hoyt Corkins (67,525), Erik Seidel (64,925), Patrik Antonius (64,125), Vanessa Rousso, a woman, who went to Duke (48,450), and 2007 WSOP final table-ist Alex Kravchenko (45,300).

Railbirds Don't Get Much Hotter Than This at the 2008 WSOP

hot girls sort of stand out at the 2008 WSOP Main Event

A hot railbird amidst a sea of schlubs at the 2008 WSOP.

We've been trying to stay true to the whole concept of having a poker pro appear somewhere in each of our railbird photos from the 2008 WSOP, but with the Main Event underway it's getting hard. First, the ratio of donkey schlubs to pros is about 100 to 1 early on at the Main Event so it ain't always easy finding a pro nearby. And two, we're getting lazy. Oh and three, fuck it.

So the hot railbird (above) standing directly across from us on Day 1A is about as hot as they've come all series long (except for maybe this blurry one). She was there to rail her guy who was seated next to 2006 WSOP Main Event runner-up Paul Wasicka. Unfortunately her boyfriend sucks at poker and got knocked out early, and with him, went her. Get a new boyfriend hun. At least one who will keep you around 'til Day 2.

Check out some more shots of her looking hot on the rail and a few other railbirds from Day 1A of the 2008 WSOP Main Event below.

2008 WSOP Day 1B Update: Anyone? Anyone? Bueller? Bueller?

Dan Druff at 2008 WSOP Main Event

Todd "Dan Druff" Witteles (bottom left) among the many "name pros" eliminated on Day 1B.

All right, seriously y'all, where the fuck are you?

Apparently you're all waiting to play Day's 1C and 1D, because you're not here. Only 1,158 registered today.

And when the fantastic's list of "10 Top Notables" includes Tony Hachem, Neil Channing, and Barney Boatman (as of post time), you know it's slim pickings for big names.

Unfortunately, as noted earlier many of the top pros playing today have since departed. That list continues to grow as a steamed Greg Raymer busted and bolted, canceling all of his media gigs on his way out. Joining him on the rail include Kenny Tran, 2006 Main Event champ Jamie Gold, Orel Hershiser, Peter "Nordberg" Feldman, and Scott Fischman.

Going into the last break of the night, some guy named Brian Schaedlich is big stacked with 107,000. Other notable big name pros "Keeping the Dream AliveTM" for The Year of the ProTM include Patrik Antonius (82,000), Hoyt Corkins (70,000), Robert Mizrachi (70,000), and a still-at-the-featured-table Erick Lindgren (66,700).

In related news, we've learned there are just over 5,400 people confirmed registered runners for the 2008 WSOP Main Event as of post time. With satellites running around the clock and many people still traveling here this weekend, there is still an outside shot of besting last year's total. Although that's still fairly unlikely.

However, as we witnessed just an hour or so ago, that didn't stop Mike "The Mouth" Matusow from making a $10k wager with Phil Gordon on a 7,500 +/- entrant prop bet. Matusow, who is not known for being an astute prop better, is the one taking the over. Good luck with that. Listen for some play-by-play action of this with one of the Entities on's Poker Edge radio show in a couple of days.

And finally in unrelated news, Dancing with the Stars' Shannon Elizabeth was seen in the Rio Amazon Room holding hands with Derek Hough, so guess they're still a couple and out in the open about it, which is great news for the .0001% of our readers who give a shit.

2008 WSOP Update: The Year of the Pro(TM) Back In Jeopardy as Phil Hellmuth, Michael "The Grinder" Mizrachi Do Not Win Bracelets

Michael The Grinder Mizrachi at the 2008 WSOP

The Grinder failed to rack up his first WSOP bracelet last night.

Uh oh.

:: Event #50 ($10,000 Pot Limit Omaha) - Errr. Eeee. Hmm. Well, Michael "The Grinder" Mizrachi entered final table play as chip leader, but he couldn't pull through that first WSOP bracelet, eventually falling in third. Instead, Marty Smith, who is not even a pro, took the title, his first bracelet, and $859,549. Even worse, and this is truly scary, Marty Smith is...ugh...a ginger. Get full payouts here.

:: Event #51 ($1,500 H.O.R.S.E.) - After Grinder not winning a bracelet, all eyes were on Phil Hellmuth. Could Hellmuth keep hope alive for The Year of the ProTM at the 2008 WSOP? It was such a main storyline that nobody was even paying attention to the fact that Phil was going for his 12th bracelet. Didn't even cross anyone's mind. It was all about The Year of the ProTM. But following in the steps of The Grinder, Hellmuth finished third. Instead, James Schaaf took his first bracelet, banking $256,412. Get full payouts here.

:: Event #52 ($1,500 No Limit Hold'em) - There is still hope though. Three guys we consider pros by any measurable standard, Matt Matros, David Daneshgar, and Dan Heimiller, who happens to be THIS GINGER, enter final table play stacked second, fourth, and sixth respectively. If Heimiller pulls out his second bracelet, will that make this The Year of the Ginger? (patent pending) They all trail chip leader Corwin Cole (not a pro). Get full final table chip counts here.

:: Event #53 ($1,500 Limit Hold'em Shoot-Out) - A field of 823 whittled down to 72, paying out first $278,180. Some pros still alive and fighting to ensure this year is their year include Jean-Robert Bellande, Hoyt Corkins and Kenna James (see their brokeback moment here), and David Bach.

2008 WSOP Update: James Mackey, A Ginger, Leads $50k H.O.R.S.E; Erik Seidel Goes for 9th Bracelet Again

David Benyamine (above right), continues his assault on 2008 WSOP POY honors as he's among the chip leaders in the $50,000 H.O.R.S.E. event.

After a few days of downtime, the hype/action/buzz returned to the 2008 WSOP yesterday with the start of the $50,000 H.O.R.S.E. event. The Rio Amazon Room was packed with newly arrived so-called poker "media,"
railbirds, fanboys, and industry types. Action for the H.O.R.S.E. event picks up again today at 3pm.

:: Event #42 ($1,000 Seniors No Limit Hold'em) - Whatever.

:: Event #43 ($1,500 Omaha Hi/Lo) - The big story here is that Erik Seidel is making his second run at bracelet #9 this year. Seidel is stacked second overall with 340,000. He only trails Jon Maren (377,000), who you've likely discerned then must be the chip leader. Also in contention is Casey Kastle (188,000), who joins Shannon Shorr as the two dudes on the circuit with the best hot porn star sounding names. Let's just say if we saw a DVD called "Girl-Girl-Guy Threesomes Galore! (43)" starring Casey Kastle, Shannon Shorr, and Brock Parker, we probably wouldn't even do a double-take. Get full chip counts here.

:: Event #44 ($1,000 No Limit Hold'em w/ Rebuys) - 115 remain of the original 879, and with all the rebuys, first place with pay $693,444. Jamel Maistriaux ended Day 1 as chip leader, stacked at 169,300. Big name big stacks remaining include Mark Seif (133,000), Joe Tehan, whose name sounds too much like "Tehran" for our liking (108,200), and the spectacularly-breasted J.C. Tran (54,900). Get full chip counts here.

:: Event #45 ($50,000 H.O.R.S.E) - The big one. The event everyone was waiting for and the title the pros most want to claim. Each table is stacked with a who's who of poker greats. Surely the event will continue the trend this year that we exclusively trademarked as The Year of the ProTM. Frightening the competition with fearlessness that could only be accomplished by someone lacking a soul is James "mig dot com" Mackey, a ginger, with 214,000. With 140 of the initial 148 remaining, and with virtually every person in the field someone that you've heard of, it'd be, as Dr. Pauly would say, "redunkulous" to list all the notables. But we will mention that Phil Hellmuth, seen here talking about the bad WSOP he's having right before the event began, was one of the eight eliminated on Day 1. Also, the four pros most likely to claim 2008 WSOP POY honors (and solidify this year as the Year of the Pro), Erick Lindgren, Daniel Negreanu, Barry Greenstein, and David Benyamine, are all above averaged stacked going into Day 2. Get full chip counts here.

After the jump, a photo of the fantastically stacked and looking-better-than-ever Isabelle Mercier next to Dario Minieri. Mercier seriously looks like that hot teacher everyone wanted to bang in 9th grade and Dario like the student who gets a little too nervous around her.

You Can't Spell HORSE Without H-0

We snapped our new stock photo for Gus Hansen tonight during the HORSE event.

We haven't a clue who the hooker girl is above. We just know that she walked out onto the floor of the World Championship HORSE event at the 2008 WSOP earlier tonight without a care in the world, and started to chum and chat it up with Daniel Negreanu at his table for awhile.

After she walked away, Daniel said he had no idea who the girl was.

The big-boobed buttaface then found Gus Hansen at his table across the room, and as you'd expect, the self-proclaimed ladies' man was more open to having a conversation than Daniel was, and by conversation we mean having her sit on his lap while he played, getting David Williams to snap photos of the two, getting her phone number and generally enjoying her huge breasts in his face before she was more or less escorted away.

And of course our photog was right there to capture all of the above.

2008 WSOP Update: $50K Buy-In HORSE Event Underway

Chad Brown (above, headphones) at the tail end of the first level of the $50k HORSE event.

Saddle up!

The HORSE event at the 2008 World Series of Poker got out of the gate off to a galloping quick start tonight with a stable field of 146 players who ponied up paid the $50k buy-in to compete for what is now the most coveted title in poker.

Poker stallion great Gus Hansen has grabbed the reins taken charge early to amass the chip lead.

Last year's champ, the Shetland-sized half-man, half-amazing Freddy Deeb is currently second in chips.

Also doing well just after the first break are a few young foals guns, including James Mackey, a ginger, and Phil "OMGClayAiken" Galfond.

Filly Female player Isabelle Mercier is among the top twenty, while Annie Duke, a mare woman, was off to a good start as well but has fallen back to 100k in chips.

Surprisingly a no show is a lame stud not-feeling-well Patrik Antonius.

2008 WSOP Update: Shorr, Seidel and Hachem Among Leaders on Day 1 of Event No. 43

Shannon Shorr is among leaders in Event No. 43 at the 2008 WSOP

Shannon Shorr (above photo, on right) is among the Day 1 leaders in the $1,500 buy-in Omaha Hi-Low event at the 2008 WSOP.

A total of 720 runners entered Event No. 43, the $1,500 buy-in Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-low Split-8 or Better event, today, bringing the prize pool to just under a mil with first getting $216,249, or about $70k less than what you could fetch Phil Ivey's old SLR for on eBay.

Last we looked there were 82 players remaining and one good-from-afar-but-far-from-good girl on the rail. Really, photo-worthy railbirds have been slim to none the past few days. Let's step it up ladies. We have a site to run.

Current chip leaders just before midnight include Erik Seidel, who's gunning for his first bracelet of this year's WSOP, Joe Hachem, who just might be the next Joe Hachem, compulsive WSOP casher Berry Johnston, and the guy with the girl's name Shannon Shorr. Layne Flack and his teeth are also making a move up the leader board late tonight just got eliminated.

Stacked the most right now is the generically-named Ed Smith, who has quietly amassed around $270k in WSOP earnings over the years.

2008 WSOP Update: David Benyamine Livin' Large, Wins First Bracelet

David Benyamine wins bracelet at 2008 WSOP
David Benyamine (above, front center) battled a stacked final table to win his first bracelet earlier today.

Working off some general fog from the Gnarls Barkley concert at Mandalay Bay beach so we're light on the preamble for this WSOP update. However, of note, the sitarist for opening act Thievery Corporation is a dead ringer for Dutch Boyd. Seriously could've been him. Dutch, do you have wicked sitar chops that we're unaware of?

::  Event #35 ($1,500 No Limit Hold'em) - Here's a final table that would've been infinitely more interesting if Bryan Micon out lasted another six eliminations to join the remaining nine (get Micon's latest Degenerate Report here). Aaron Kanter, he of 2005 WSOP final table fame, made a run from short-stack to finish third, which pretty much constitutes the "big story" on this one.  Jesper Hougaard started the day as chip leader and ended the day as chip leader, winning his first bracelet and banking $610,304. Get full results here.

:: Event #35 ($10,000 Omaha Hi/Lo) - David Benyamine is having a helluva month. Aside from waking up next to Erica Schoenberg every morning, Benyamine banked almost $1.5M on Full Tilt Poker last month. Today he added another $535,687 to his bankroll after taking down the World Championship of Omaha Hi/Lo. Benyamine defeated Greg Jamison heads-up for the title. The win vaults Benyamine to second overall in the 2008 World Series of Poker Player of the Year standings, trailing Jacobo Fernadez by two points. Toto Leonidas finished fourth, Mike "The Mouth" Matusow fifth. Get full payouts here.

:: Event #36 ($2,000 Pot Limit Hold'em) - Michael Binger will have to wait a little longer for his first WSOP bracelet. After holding the chip lead for most of Event #36, the cashing machine just missed another final table, bowing out in 11th. Instead the exceedingly pretentiously named Jan Christoph Von Halle will start final table play with the chip lead, stacked at 485,000. He's followed by 2007 WSOP Main Event final table-ist Lee Watkinson-Markholt with 357,000. Watkinson-Markholt is going for his second bracelet. In fourth overall is Ayaz Mahmood, who let's just say we'd watch his every move like a fucking hawk if he sat next to us on a flight. Why doesn't he have any carry-on luggage? Why only a book? He's been in the bathroom an awfully long time. Whew ok he sat back down and is now buckling his seat belt. First pays out $$244,583. Get full chip counts here.

:: Event #37 ($1,500 No Limit Hold'em) - Another mega-field, with 2,720 entrants paying out a first place prize of $631,656. Only 218 survived to Day 2. Michael Polcari takes the chip lead into action today with 130,000. Making his own push for 2008 WSOP Player of the Year honors is Barry Greenstein, who started off strong and is stacked at 89,600.

WSOP Photo Dump: Pros Playing in the World Championship Omaha Hi-Low Split Event

Mike Matusow at 2008 WSOP

As we mentioned in this post, the big name pros came out yesterday for Day 1 of Event No. 37, the $10,000 buy-in World Championship Omaha Hi-Low Split event at the 2008 WSOP.

We tasked our photog with shooting some of the poker pros competing, and we think he did a great job picking his subjects, including Mike Matusow (above), Katja Thater, Thor Hansen, Jen Harman and Michael Binger.

Poker Player Jerry Buss Likes 'Em Young, Exotic

Jerry Buss playing poker late night at the 2008 WSOP

Grampa gets an eye-full of Jerry Buss' railbird late night at the 2008 WSOP.

A day after the Celtics hammered his Lakers in Game 6 of the NBA Finals by more than five touchdowns, Jerry Buss, 74, was grinding it out in the $1,500 buy-in Seven Card Stud event at the 2008 WSOP while being railed by some exotic-looking youngin' we're guessing is a few years shy a third his age, if that in any way adds up to about 21.

And by exotic we mean what is she? Indonesian? Peruvian? Native American/Filipino/Black/Mexican? Not that it really matters. Just curious.

Anyway, the girl above was with him all day along with another, way hotter, equally exotic-looking chick who looked sort of like Jeannena Flores, the Hawaiian Tropic model he was with when he got busted for his DUI. We're not sure where she went later in the night when it was just the girl above on the rail. Curfew perhaps.

Why are we writing about this shit? Oh yeh, we promised pics in this post. Click away below, including the crappy one a reader emailed us from his iPhone. See how Jerry's doing today on Day of Event No. 35 here.

2008 WSOP Update: Event No. 34, $1,500 Pot-Limit Omaha w/ Rebuys

The insufferably annoying Humberto Brenes (foreground) playing in Event No. 34 as WSOP media guru Nolan Dolla (background) focuses on his work.

Event No. 34, the $1,500 buy-in Pot-Limit Omaha W/ReBuys event at the 2008 WSOP, lived up to its billing as a huge shove fest with 320 runners rebuying/adding-on a total of 1,350 times. That drove the prize purse up to $2.4 million with first place guaranteed a decent $577,725 payday.

Half a day after the start of action and they're down to just 58 players. Frank Vizza is the current chip leader with (351k) and big name pros like Ted Forrest (175k), Gavin Griffin (158k), Layne Flack (145k) and Thomas Wahlroos (122k) are among those remaining.

Also in the mix still is Clonie Gowen (120k), who we saw earlier sans any Full Tilt Poker patches. People were speculating that she's about to be dropped from Team Full Tilt and sources of ours close to FTP management have told us she's indeed on her way out, if not already.

Scott Fischman (above) decked out in his Full Tilt Poker gear in Event No. 33, the Stud/8 championship.

The World Championship Stud 8 or Better event was today's 5pm start at the 2008 WSOP. Lotta big names in the 261-player field battling it out for a share of a smallish prize pool of $1,226,700. That number though is up a tad from last year's championship won by Edwin James Olmos Eli Elezra

Early chipleaders include Barry Greenstein, who's coming off a bracelet win in the Razz event, Shawn "Sheiky" Sheikhan, who wins the award so far for drawing the hottest drunk railbirds to an event, Robert Mizrachi, Tex Barch, Todd Brunson, Alex Jacob, David Benyamine, 4-time WSOP bracelet winner Daniel Negreanu, Justin Bonomo, Jordan Rich, a ginger, and Huck Seed, who we're picking to win this event 'cause the guy is due.

Notable bust outs so far include Gavin Smith, Chad Brown, who is somewhere in this photo, not that you're looking, Jen Harman and Archie Karas.

Day 1 of the $2,500 buy-in No-Limit Hold'em / Six Handed event at the 2008 WSOP has drawn to a close, and among the notable chipleaders include our favorite scarf-wearing Euro Dario Minieri, Bill Chen, Scotty Nguyen, Anthony Roux, the guy with the girl's name Shannon Shorr, the awfully nicknamed Max "Italian Pirate" Pescatori and railbird-er Eric Liu.

2008 WSOP Update: Kenny Tran, Barry Greenstein, Max Pescatori Win Weekend Bracelets, Chan Goes for 11, Hellmuth for 12

Shannon Elizabeth at the World Series of Poker 
Shannon Elizabeth (above) is among the millions of poker players not included in this WSOP update.

The Entities decided to take it a little easy this weekend, but only because we love you. As we've all learned through our respective marriages, the best way to make someone grow fonder of you is through a steady diet of ignoring them and neglect. And here you are thinking to yourself, "I thought it was through bringing them flowers, listening to their problems, and being a strong emotional rock of support." And that's why you're a pussy.

:: Event #24 ($2,500 Pot Limit Omaha/Hold'em) - Listen, we know sometimes people have no control over what their nicknames are, but there's nothing cool about being called "The Italian Pirate." However that didn't stop Max Pescatori from denying Allen Cunningham a WSOP bracelet for the 47th consecutive year. Pescatori banks his second bracelet and $246,471. Get full results here.

:: Event #25 ($10,000 No Limit Hold'em Heads-Up) - Many people consider Kenny Tran the best no limit hold'em cash player in the world. He doesn't play many WSOP events, but the ones he does, he does well. Tran won his first bracelet over the weekend by beating, as Dr. Pauly would say, a "redunkulous" field in the $10,000 No Limit Hold'em Heads-Up World Championship at the WSOP. The win brings Tran $539,056. Vanessa Selbst, a woman, finished third. We've spotted Selbst at various cash games googling her name, and we think it might've been her confirming with this comment that she does have a hot girlfriend.

:: Event #26 ($1,500 Razz) - Barry Greenstein is the absolutely most perfect person in the world to win a Razz tournament. Razz is generally detested by most players and Greenstein often doesn't look like he's enjoying playing poker at all (even though it's quite the opposite). For the win, Greenstein banks $97,389 and his third bracelet. Archie Karas, yes this guy, came in seventh. Get full results here.

:: Event #27 ($1,500 No Limit Hold'em) - Over 2,700 entered and 17 remain. And it's an absolutely "friend and family" final 17. Get chip counts here.

:: Event #28 ($5,000 Pot Limit Omaha w/ Rebuys) - Big name final table on this one. Online poker legend Phil "OMGClayAiken" Galfond is the chip leader stacked at 1,393,000. The final table also includes David Benyamine (1,041,000), John Juanda (694,000), going for a record tying 11th WSOP bracelet Johnny Chan (624,000), Daniel Negreanu (460,000), and going for a record 12th WSOP bracelet Phil Hellmuth (119,000). First pays $817,781 and final table play begins at 3pm PST.

A total of 152 players entered, up from last year's event, and there were 483 rebuys and add-ons by the end of the third level, bringing the prize pool up to $3,085,930.

Early chipleaders include Jason Mercier, Andy Black, Gavin Smith, David Benyamine, Phil Galfond, Tony G, Johnny Chan and Jeff Williams.

Huck Seed is Our Pick to Win the $1500 Buy-In Razz Event at the 2008 WSOP

Huck Seed boobs

Huckleberry Seed razz-ing it up at the 2008 WSOP today.

Since the Entities who comprise Wicked Chops Poker have vowed to pick Huck Seed to win every major event he enters until he wins a major event, and since that $5k buy-in tournament he won in America's Hat doesn't really count as a major event, we're picking Huck Seed to win Event No. 26 at the 2008 WSOP, the $1,500 buy-in Razz tournament.

Huck's currently stacked at 8,100. Vanessa Rousso, a woman, who went to Duke where she studied at Duke, is the current chipleader with 17,600.

Today's 5 pm start, the Razz event drew 454 players, including a healthy number of old school-ers like Sam Grizzle, Tom McEvoy, Dewey Tomko, Berry Johnston, Thor Hansen and Billy Baxter as well as some top online-ers like JohnnyBax, BeLOWaBOVe and Pearljammer.

The total prize pool is a smallish $622,440 with first walking away with $158,659.

The favorite after two rounds has to be Chris "Jesus" Ferguson, who took down the National Heads-Up Championship in April and has the most wins of any pro in the televised tournament's four-year history.

2008 WSOP Update: Grinder Guns for 1st Bracelet in $5k No-Limit Hold'em Event

Grinder Mizrachi at the 2008 WSOP

A week ago, Michael "The Grinder" Mizrachi final tabled the Omaha/7CS Hi-Lo event, only to fall short of his first WSOP bracelet by finishing 8th.

Tonight, we're down to 13 players in the $5k buy-in No-Limit Hold'em event at the 2008 WSOP, and he's in good position to make a run again, stacked third in chips with 850,000.

Scott Seiver, who already has two cashes this series, is the chipleader with just under 1.4 mil. Rajesh Vohra is second with just over a mil.

Speaking of Indian, if you're ever stuck at the Rio, the curiously named, not that we're curious, Gaylords is a must. Try the chicken tikka masala with a couple of orders of garlic naan bread. It's good eatin'.

What were we talking about again? Oh ... so yeh we saw this chick again. Damn.

Whaaaaaat? Grinder just busted while we were writing this post. So much for all of the above. They're down to 10 now. Jacobo Fernandez is now in third and Seiver's over the 2 mil mark. Also notable, Scott "SCTrojans" Freeman is still around, stacked at 465k.

The $2,000 buy-in No-Limit Hold'em event is done for the night, and 11-time WSOP bracelet winner Phil Hellmuth (above) is among the 180 or so players who will be returning to the tables tomorrow at 2pm.

Hellmuth is stacked at 47,500 (last report), and will be gunning for his ridiculous 64th WSOP cash and his 12th bracelet.

The chipleader at the end of the day may or may not be Dustin Dirksen, stacked at or around 172,000. Other pros still in include Barry Greenstein, Tim Phan, Allen Le, Jared "The Waco Kid" Hamby and the not very athletic Bill Gazes.

Our favorite Brazilian chica who doesn't model for Victoria's Secret Maridu is stacked just over $50,000.

Poker couple David Benyamine (top left photo) and Erica Schoenberg (top right photo) were among the pros who busted early in today's $2k buy-in No-Limit Hold'em event.

The first tournament to kick off today at the 2008 WSOP was the $2K Buy-In No-Limit Hold'em event (Event No. 23).

1,344 runners entered--about 300 less than last year--bringing the total prize pool to $2,446,000. First place walks with $507,613.

Players are currently on dinner break, and only 350 remain. It's Barry Greenstein who leads with 53,000. Swede Simon Lindqvist is close behind with 51,000. Other big names who are up early include Men Nguyen, Young Phan, and TJ Cloutier.

Maridu11-time WSOP bracelet winner Phil Hellmuth is still among the crowd, stacked at 13,000. He's been 'dodging some bullets' today, surviving an all in early with KK against AA when he spiked a set on the river.

2008 WSOP Update: Event No. 22 - $3K Buy-In H.O.R.S.E. Underway

Poker pro Chad Brown is the guy with headphones

It's a pro heavy field in today's $3k buy-in HORSE event at the 2008 WSOP, and we're not just saying that because David Benyamine and Greg Raymer are playing. Like any tournament that involves anything but just Hold'em, tonight's HORSE event has drawn a who's who of big name pros ... way too lazy many to be named.

We're picking Chad Brown (photo above) as our early favorite, because he's a solid all-around player and our photog snapped the great shot of him above before he busted in the $5k NLHE event. He's the one wearing headphones for those who don't follow poker and may not recognize him.

Early chip leaders in the tournament include Allen Kessler, who, as a side not, really needs to lay off the Facebook crack, Chau Giang, and Perry Friedman.

Annie Duke, a woman, is also off to a decent start while Shannon Elizabeth isn't so much. She's down almost 2k from the start and is bundled up in a jacket trying to stay warm in the Amazon Room. It's a bit nippy in here right now, you may have noticed.

18 of the 85 players remain with David Benyamine holding an ironically slim chip lead over a newly slim Mike Matusow, 2007 WSOP POY Tom Schneider of Pokerati fame, and 21-year-old Tom "Durrrr" Dwan. All are over the 400k mark.

Others still in include Barry Greenstein, Jeffrey Lisandro, Erick Lindgren, David Grey, Chad Brown, Tony G, Nick Schulman and Michael Binger.
