Day 6 World Series of Poker Main Event
Well I finally made it to Binions despite another rowdy night at the Redneck Riviera. There was a big bust last night and Las Vegas Metro police swarmed the area. They took down a drug ring a couple of buildings down. These ragged drug dealers guys are more sophisticated than you think. There are two lookouts, a point man, the muscle, and the contact. The first lookout stands out front in the driveway with the point man who runs up to your car asking you how much "rock" or "tweek" you are looking to score. The second lookout is perched up on the third floor balcony of the bulding across the way. And the contact is the guy who gives you the drugs. He's the guy who hands over the rock. The muscle answers the door and pounds the shit out of you if you make one false move. I heard that the lookouts ran away while the muscle got shot and the contact and pointman were taken away in handcuffs.
Anyway, the laundry room was buzzing about the bust last night. One old lady was bragging that she was interviewed by the local TV station. All I could think was, "Who's getting hauled away next?"
You can read my recap of yesterday's action on Fox Sports. They gave me the headline: Lurking Shark.
I put money on Phil Ivey at 300-1 before this event started that was several weeks ago. I'm obviously rooting for him. The big story is Greg Raymer. If he can make another final table, he'll prove to everyone that last year's win was not a fluke. He's impressed me so far. He made one final table already this year and he's looking for his second. Of course everyone's attention will be on Mike Matusow. Will he maintian his chip lead? Will we witness the "Mike Matusow Meltdown?" As it gets closer and closer to the final table, the bigger the implosion will be... if it happens. Can Tiffiany Williamsen continue her Cinderella story and become only the second female to make it to a final table? Will Andy Black make Ireland proud or can one of the other 27 players remaining survive today's meat grinder and make it to the final table in hopes of trying to snag $7.5M. Can Phil Ivey a regular in the "Big Game" win his first big one?
