Poker Peeps in Vegas Doing Well

In case you didn’t know, the World Series of Poker is under way in Vegas, all 742 events of it (estimated). Former car dealer and current private investor — not to mention Horatio Award Alger winner — Carl Westcott played in the charity tournament Ante Up for Africa, placed third, and won about $100,000. My kinda charity. (Poker-blogging Dan Michalski has a Flickr set of the event, including a few shots of Westcott.) Also, keep an eye on Randy “The Big Randy” Brown. He’s a friend of mine from high school, a member of our home game, and currently in 21st place in the $10k event. Go, TBR. (Note: If you click on Randy’s name, you get a different Randy. Either WSOP officials can’t keep their Randy’s straight, or TBR Randy is executing a brilliant egg roll, which is a term you need not worry yourself with as of yet.)
