POKER UP FRONT, LIQUOR IN THE REAR

As many of you know, the World Series of Poker is underway in Vegas. Total number of entrants this year was 5,619. Each paid $10,000 for a seat (or won one through various means). First place pays nearly $7 million, if memory serves. When they quit for the day yesterday, around 4 a.m. this morning, there were only 185 players left. One of those players is John “The Big Randy” Brown, a fellow from our home game. He also happens to be the only Dallas player remaining (though I understand a guy from McKinney still has chips). The Big Randy will find himself short-stacked as play begins today around noon Vegas time. You can track him on the official WSOP site. An even better source is our own Dan Michalski’s blog Pokerati.
