Where Is Jerry Yang?

The 2007 WSOP final table airs in a just few hours tonight on ESPN.

And this got us thinking: what happened to Jerry Yang?

Jerry Yang is the guy who won the 2007 WSOP Main Event, btw.

(And rumor has it that it will be revealed tonight that the hand that Jerry Yang's final table roll started, when Lee Childs held Queens...Yang...held...Jacks.)

Could Yang have gone more silent in recent months? Jerryyang1

Aside from these photos we found of Yang pulling a Chris McCandless-esque journey into the wild and across Canada, there hasn't been a peep from him since the win. No Jamie Gold-esque lawsuit. No Salty Joe Hachem "oi oi oi!" Yet, nothing...except some talk about giving money to something called "charity," which we thought must've been the name of some stripper he was banging but then learned it actually is a word in the English language that means, "generous actions or donations to aid the poor, ill, or helpless."

People seriously do that shit? We thought most people just made fun of or threw stuff at or pushed the poor, ill, or helpless down stairs and stuff.

Anyway, we've written before that for the good of poker, we really needed a dynamic final table and, in particular, winner this year. Who knows how Yang will be edited, but "dynamic" isn't the "d" word that usually comes to mind from people in the poker world when they think of him.

Let's see what kind of job ESPN does tonight. More Jerry Yang partying/tramping across the country photos after the jump.

For what it's worth, Yang cashed in a Binion's $1k tourney on Hallow's Eve (I think that's what 30 October is called). http://pokerdb.thehendonmob.com/event.php?a=r&n=29068

I wish they would leave, the GOD and praying to Jesus remarks out of poker.... That's along with the terrible antics of those that win a pot and then go into some sort of NFL touchdown dance... It's poker baby, not a side show...


Bro, charity is a stripper. she works at the rhino. i think shes phillipino... thats like being poor.


seriously-what is with all this charity bashing lately. so not funny. and people know you know what charity is you know, don't you, so why do you pretend you don't know when you do know. and btw, that isn't jerry yang. and i'm a douchbag.
