Today's Card Player "LIKE YOU WERE THERE" Moment

Cpdaily_1The sheer volume of opportunities that Card Player provides for LYWTMsTM is beginning to border on the absurd. In corporate America-speak, it’s like drinking water from a fire hose.

And just when we thought that LYWTM opportunities would eventually dry up, we discovered the Daily, and suddenly a whole new world of amazement appeared right before our eyes.

It’s very tempting to just slap up a link to the July 24th the Daily and use the entire issue as a LYWTM. It’s so tempting, in fact, that’s exactly what we’re going to do. However, below we will still call out a few of our favorite gems. You can mine for your own gold by downloading this.

1) Big Field; Big Money
The final table of the $2,000 No-Limit Hold’em tournament (event #31) wasn’t set until 3:40 a.m. on Sunday morning, and those nine came back to play just 11 hours later. And the man who started with the most chips, Justin Scott of Redford Township, Michigan, ended up with all of them by 11:18 p.m., earning $842,262 and his first WSOP bracelet.

2) It seems we are always pressed for space at the Daily: so much to cover, so little room. So this recap will be quick…
Editor’s Note: If you’re so pressed for space, why not just say: We’re always pressed for space at the Daily, so this recap will be quick.” You would’ve saved some space there. Who is editing this damn thing? Wordy McGillicutty?

3) Bloch finished second in the $50,000 H.O.R.S.E. tournament, taking home more than $1 million (and he very nearly won the thing).
Editor’s Note: By the very nature of finishing second, doesn’t that mean you very nearly won the thing? Isn’t that implied? Wouldn't that have saved words too? Going to kick selves in heads now.
