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

Of Card Player’s many great qualities, perhaps the greatest quality of them all is its sense of humor.

Cardplayer_1_2And poker needs more humor.

Straight-up news sources like Wicked Chops Poker feel like it’s our responsibility to bring you honest, straight-forward reporting that is always tactful, integrity always in check.

Therefore, we rely on Card Player to find the humor in things.

For example, it would be bordering on impossible to find any humor in David William’s impressive run through the 2006 WSOP. Suffice to say, his play speaks for itself. Yet, in a moment that could have made it into an Alanis Morissette song about irony, Card Player, yet again, was able to find us a laugh during some serious final table action. We can only imagine how much more funny the following would’ve been if the Main Event in 2004 were a Deuce-to-Seven Lowball tournament, if what happened occurred during heads-up play, and if what happened was actually funny.

In a funny twist of fate, Williams followed up his double bust by eliminating the man who knocked him out of the 2004 Main Event – Greg Raymer.
