players voted to halt play to watch the penalty shootout. Nice to see democracy
at the WSOP. I was thinking of opening a pokerroom/bar/strip club in Dubai the
way things have been over here recently.
Max Pescatori, the Italian,
won a bracelet today. He described it as the happiest day of his life. Max was
one of my first poker friends. After an all night tournament at the Commerce I
decided to use a variety of bus + train to go to Redondo Beach. During the
journey, my mobile rings and Max wanted me to accompany him to the races. "Get
off at the next station and I will pick you up" Max said. The train enters a
station ."OK, Max. I am in Compton" "DON'T get off the train, we can go to the
races another day ..."
He wanted to claim a horse to run during the
Commerce then hope someone claimed it before he moved up to Bay101.
has recently been signed by Doyles Room. A memorable day for the site as Tom
Franklin is the chip leader at tomorrows final table and Todd's wife Anjela is
running hot in the Ladies tournament.
Speaking of the Ladies, 1100
entered todays tournament. It was more like an elimination heat for Miss World
rather than a poker tournament .Celebrities included Shannon Elizabeth, Ricki
Lake, Kelly Hu, Mimi Tran and reigning champ Jennifer Tilly.
good photos of this event at http://pokerfolio.com/Gallery3/album01 Our photo
shows the boys from Italy who watched the game at an Italian restaurant then
moved to the WSOP. They were quieter than the Aussies at last years WSOP Main
Event (World Championship) final.
Julian Gardner made an appearance in
the $5k PLO event. All four Hendon Mob players plus Bruce Corman, Colclough,
Trumper, Conor Tate + Devilfish joined him. Devilfish is telling the Ladies he
is recently divorced .... Roland de Wolfe is the best of British as I write.
