Year in Review: 2005 World Series of Poker

Shannonclosestanding_1 Throughout the month and until the end of the year, Wicked Chops Poker is going to cop out from creating original content and recap some of our better stories of the year.  This weekend, we present the following:

Some might say Wicked Chops Poker first hit its stride/found its voice during the 2005 WSOP. 

To those, we say screw you.  We were always cutting.

But still, there were great storylines and stories from the 2005 WSOP.  From the celebs to the mass of coverage, poker cemented its rep as "the thing" at this year's World Series.  Here's some of our favorite bits:
