WPT Invitational

Wasn't Layne Flack in Rehab?

We're not 100% on this, but we're pretty sure Layne Flack did a stint in rehab. Seems like that worked out pretty good for him.

PokerListings.com posted a great video from the WPT Invitational Saturday night. We really didn't feel like "going there" in our first write-up, but why not now: basically everyone at the event was super cool. It was a lot of fun. The WPT, Matt Savage, and the Commerce Casino did a great job putting it all together.

All the celebs and pros were in good spirits. However there were all two people that were acting like complete douchebags in the event: Layne Flack and the guy with the big forehead in the background of this video.

Anyway Layne, before you declare your love for Trishelle Cannatella, make sure you've got about 47 condoms to wrap around your dong and are already taking Valtrex.

Having said that, Trishelle looks way better in person than you'd think. Too bad her vag has been a parking lot for half of the penises in Las Vegas.

Flack douching it up below.

Fun with Flack from PokerListings TV

The Entities Who Comprise Wicked Chops Poker Didn't Last Long in the WPT Invitational

Let's just say that the Entities who comprise Wicked Chops Poker have had much, much better outings than what happened at the WPT Invitational on Saturday.

Usually when the Entities go out and play any event, after the inevitable bedlam ensues, at least 1/3 of said Entities cracks "the money" or "the final table." Without the requisite exaggeration, this happens about 90% of the time.

What happens 0% of the time is having all Entities gone with about the first 25% of the field.

So there really is a first time for everything.

Some random notes:

:: Ricki Lake, who looks way better at 40 than she did at 30, is more or less responsible for crippling Snake, leading to his eventual ouster.

:: Not that we weren't going to already, but Samm Levine sold us on seeing Inglorious Basterds.

:: For whatever reason, wearing nothing but leather isn't totally bizarre looking on Jose Canseco.

:: People really love them some William Hung.

:: Derek Hough and Shannon Elizabeth are still dating.

:: And for the .01% of our readers who watch The Bachelor, Chris Harrison says that about 99% of what's on Reality Steve's blog is "totally fabricated."

Final six play it out today. Keep track of it here.

Annie Duke was a 'Prize' on Deal or No Deal Last Night

Annie Duke was on Deal or No Deal, case girl Brooke Long plays pokerDancing with the Stars' Shannon Elizabeth, who you may know as one of the contestants on Dancing with the Stars, wasn't the only poker playing chick appearing on a hit show last night.

Annie Duke, a woman, made a surprise appearance on NBC's Deal or No Deal, the game show featuring Howie Mandel and 26 super hot models holding briefcases with varying amounts of money in them.

Apparently the contestant last night was a female poker player, and in the middle of the show, Annie came up on stage to offer a "deal" that included $133,000 in cash and a free trip to Annie's WSOP Academy ladies poker camp, 4 private poker lessons and some other stuff that was valued at a total of $25,000. The contestant's husband encouraged her to walk away with the Annie Duke lessons and the money, but she went against his advice and said, "No Deal."

In the end, the chick wasn't stupidly greedy like every other contestant on the show. She made it down to two cases, one had $25,000 and the other $1 million, and when she was offered $341,000, she took the deal.

So what was in her case? The million bucks.

We missed the actual airing but we were sent a video of Annie's appearance on the show and we have to say she's looking rather fit and trim. We guess all that marathon training is paying off for her. Or maybe it's Adderall. Works for us.

In case you are wondering who the hot blonde is in the photo above and what she has to do with this post, her name is Brooke Long, the Deal or No Deal model who holds case #15 every week on the show. We met her at the WPT Invitational a few weeks ago where she showed us some sick photos of her busted up big toe. It was good times. Below are more clickable photos of Brooke playing poker at the WPTI, and if you missed our Kimberly Lansing shots from the WPTI, do yourself a favor and go here.

There's a Chance We May Think Kimberly Lansing is Pretty

Kimberly Lansing of the World Poker Tour
We're not sure if we've mentioned this before but we think the World Poker Tour's Kimberly Lansing is really pretty. It's the kind of thing we also tell our current/first wives all the time, because it's good to remind them that we think so, to which they always respond, "Who is Kimberly Lansing?"

If you missed it, Kimberly--who will be dressing as wonder woman, Betty Boop, Princess Leia or Lara Croft at an upcoming WPT event, you pick--kicked ass at the WPT Invitational a few weeks ago, finishing 8th in a field of 445 that included a number of celebrity card tossers and many of the world's best poker players (drunk off their asses). The winner of the event, because you don't care, was Van Nguyen, who we've yet to see a photo of anywhere. All the ones we've seen just show some Asian lady (the dealer?) holding up the cash.

Below and after the jump photos of Kimberly Lansing. She's really pretty.

Anyone Know Who This Girl is at the WPT Invitational

She didn't last long Saturday night at the WPT Invitational but long enough for our drunken photographer to snap a few pics of her. We never found out if she was a "celebrity" of sorts, or just a friend of one, but we heard she was digging us and since all of us entities are currently, at this time, this moment, right now, today, still with our first wives, we wanted to let her down easy with this blog post. Yeah, we're heartbreakers ladies. Sorry.

Breasts Spectacular: Layla Kayleigh and JC Tran at the WPT Invitational

Quien es mas spectacular breasts? Layla Kayleigh o JC Tran?

Within “poker circles,” it’s widely recognized that poker pro J.C. Tran has the most spectacular breasts on the circuit today. They are truly exquisite.

However, this informal poll of poker insiders we refer to does not also take into account those who “cover” poker. If it did, then surely World Poker Tour hostess Layla Kayleigh would rank at the top.

If anyone can appreciate spectacular breasts, it’s J.C. Tran. Seriously, J.C. sees spectacular breasts everyday when looking in the mirror. So it should come as no surprise that he knows how to recognize a spectacular pair when he sees them.

What does come as a surprise though is that he somehow managed to not glance once at Layla's top section during his interview with her Saturday night. The guy has focus. It's why he kills it on the poker circuit. That and because he has spectacular breasts.

More photos of the spectacularly breasted, perfectly hourglass-figured Layla Kayleigh and the spectacularly breasted J.C. Tran at the WPT Invitational after the jump . . .

Diane Nguyen (aka Who is this girl) at the WPT Invitational

Diane Nguyen at the WPT InvitationalDiane Nguyen, the hot poker playing chick from the "Who is this girl" thread on 2p2, played the WPT Invitational at the Commerce this past weekend, making it to the second day.

Diane recently moved to LA and confirmed Saturday night that she isn't the camera phone girl who "Arbitage" posted a pic of on the 2p2 thread (see that pic here).

Apparently that is just another hot Asian girl.

We knew it wasn't Diane but Jon from Pokulator isn't convinced, even after asking her during the tournament and showing her a pic of the camera phone girl on one of our iphones.

As a side note, we're pretty sure Diane, who once said "I am from Canada where we live in igloos and have sleighs instead of cars," digs us more than Billy Bob from Canada who commented on our ice fishing post today...check that out here.

See more of our photos of Diane Nguyen at the WPT Invitational on Saturday night after the jump . . .

UPDATE: Worth the mention . . . Diane impressively pocketed more than $70k at the LAPC this year.

Trishelle Cannatella Playing Poker at the WPT Invitational

Trishelle looking kind of pornish at the WPT Invitational
Trishelle Cannatella, the "Real World: Las Vegas" lush we have the utmost respect for because she showed a generation of young women everywhere that it was cool to get sloppy drunk and have lots of carefree sex with people you barely know, was one of the poker playing C-lebs at the WPT Invitational this past weekend.

As you can tell from the photos, the prairie dog lovin' Playboy-er was dressed modestly by her standards, in that she was wearing clothes.

While Trishelle has never really done it for us in the looks-above-the-neck department, we have to admit she looked somewhat decent Saturday night, at least from afar. Up close though, her vein popping arms (see 2nd and 3rd pics after the jump) kind of freaked us out, which just goes to show what happens when girls like Trishelle dress modestly, we notice crap like that.

If you're interested in not noticing her vein popping forearms, check out the video of her dining topless with Ron Jeremy here (NSFW).

Kimberly Lansing Finishes 8th in WPT Invitational, Quest to Become Perfect Nearly Complete

Kimberly_lansingLost in the NBC National Heads-Up Poker Championship shuffle is the WPT Invitational at Commerce Casino.

And it would've continued to have been lost in the shuffle had WPT online video reporter and WCP fave Kimberly Lansing not finished in eighth place.

Out of 445 entrants.

For the eighth place finish, Kimberly banks $0. Only the top six get paid. Winner hauls $125,000. Leading the way at "press time" is Billy Baxter. Chance are we won't report on it again so get final results here.
