Gavin Smith is Day 2 Chipleader in Joisey

GavinsmithpokerDay 2 of the US Poker Championship has wrapped in the land of IROC Zs and muscle tees, and leading the field is Gavin Smith with $350,300 in chips. Jeff "Prairie Dog" Madsen (291,000) and Tommy Wang (282,500) round out the top three.

At stake is a $606,095 first plaze prize and $1.6 total prize purse, ~$400,000 of which the US government wants to take away immediately from those who cash.

Other notables still in include Victor Ramdin (146,600), Cliff Josephy (119,8000), Bill Gazes (105,000), Allen Kessler (56,900), Matt McCullough (48,900) and Tony Cousineau (29,900).

Also making it to day 3 is local fave Will "The Thrill" Failla, who if we had to guess eats a lot of spaghetti and has a gold chain trimmed license plate and fuzzy dice hanging from his rearview mirror. We're also guessing he could kick our asses.

Defending champ Alex Jacob started the day off with a decent stack but was chiseled down throughout the afternoon and finally got knocked out by McCullough, the Bodog player who was the last American standing at the recent WSOP Europe.

Also eliminated was a girl who slightly resembles Chantel McNulty named Ebony Kenney. And if a MySpace search is to believe, she is 25-years-old, lives in Ft. Myers and has a kid or two, and may be bi.

Action starts up today at 1:15 pm at the Gar'baj Mahal and Owen Laukkanen of PokerListings will be there to report on the action, barring getting mugged by some meth addict. Check out his daily blog here and live reports here.

one more thing-everyone knows meth is mostly west coast, DOG. Crack is the drug of choice for the AC addicts.


seriously-is the AC bashing because you're now associated with Vegasraw.com? Nobody on the east coast would ever attempt to compare AC with Vegas, but when it comes down to just gambling, AC is where it's at. For jock-sniffing and celeb-spotting, and world-class titty bars, and mountains of coke, everyone knows Vegas is where it's at.

Joisey Joe -- (lolrotflmaohahahaha!!)

"Joisey" is not funny. Not even remotely. People don't talk like that in real life. Seriously, you guys are getting lazy.
