Straight-Up Rumors

The Degenerate Update: Vanessa Selbst Takes on Neverwin; Phil Ivey's McLaren Up for Auction; Sklansky Banned from ESPN?

Kind of a slow week for "degenerosity," but the latest Degenerate Report from NWP covers the gamut of filthy gambling rumors floating around the Rio in Las Vegas. Joining Bryan Micon this week is Event #41 10th place finisher Todd "DanDruff" Witteles. The NWP guys are balling at the 2008 WSOP with 8 cashes between them.

Phil Ivey Might've Lost A Lot of Money Tonight

Phil Ivey may have lost 2 million on Lakers
Phil Ivey (above) might've emptied his wallet when the Lakers lost tonight.

As we reported last week, Phil Ivey, who likes to gamble, had a vested interest in the LA Lakers vs. Boston Celtics NBA Championship series.

The rumor all over the Rio Amazon Room floor was that Ivey had $2 million dollars riding on the Lakers to defeat the Celtics (pictures of Ivey watching the game while playing poker here and actually courtside at a game here).

However today there is talk that it was a futures wager of $500,000 to win $2,000,000. Who knows. Ivey is to throwing cash around what the SEC is to college football. He's simply the best at it.

What we do know is that last time Ivey was supposedly down a lot of cash, he won the WPT LA Poker Classic. So watch what Ivey does in the $50,000 H.O.R.S.E. event next week.

More photos of Ivey watching the game tonight during the Stud/8 World Championship after the jump.

Any Ideas?

Poker player looking for mate on CraigslistGranted, this could be some 12 year-old kid making a post for shits and giggles, but here's something from the Las Vegas section in Craigslist. Working the assumption it's legit, readers leave ideas on who it could be in the comments section.

A King For A Queen Who Wants A Jack

I am a "ultra" high-stakes professional poker.

Due to being at the poker room or on the internet playing poker most of my adult life, I feel like I have missed out on something.

I want a child.

This could be a long term relationship or not. (Totally up to you.)

Mutually beneficial situation.
