"All-in and call table 33!" was the cry, and I found myself bundled out of my prime viewing position by a throng of accredited media. Donnacha O'Dea was all-in with pocket aces against what looked like pocket kings on a jack-high flop (the court cards might be wrong as they are hard to see from behind the ropes - numbers are easy because you can count the pips). Turn and river were bricks and the Double-D doubled up to around 200k. According to the published seat numbers, his unfortunate opponent was Tobey Maguire, but as he always covers his face when I try to take a photo of him, and as I haven't seen the Spiderman films, I can't verify that fact. Whoever it was, was crippled.



Edit: It was Tobey Maguire and he has now been eliminated. It was also a queen-high flop, not a jack-high flop, but the rest of the story is correct.

Alex Melnikow Takes a Bad Beat from Neal "Bad Beat" Channing

Usually Neal Channing is on the rough end of a bad beat. In this instance, he was the one issuing the bad beat. Channing's {J-Hearts}{J-Spades} outflopped Melnikow's {A-Clubs}{A-Hearts}. Channing increased his stack to 625,000 while Melnikow slipped to 150,000.


HAHAHAH need to call him suckout channing now!

-- The most extraordinary feat of the tournament thus far has been the incredible success of Hal Lubasky, from Las Vegas, NV. Lubasky is legally blind. He has a degenerative eye disease causing him to lose most of his eyesight, except for blurred colors. At the poker table Lubasky uses a reader which means a person sits behind him at tableside and whispers the hole cards into Lubaskys ear. From that point forward, all table decisions are dictated by Lubasky, so as not to violate the one player to a hand rule. His reader is named Jason, who works at a local bar frequented by Lubasky. In what is his first-ever WSOP event, Lebarski has now been guaranteed prize money. Currently, he has 409,000 in chips. Poker has given me back my life, Lebarski told an ESPN interviewer.

-- One celebrity was eliminated on Day Three:

Todd Phillips (film director) finished in 380th place

The celebrities are still playing at the start of Day Four:

Tobey Maguire (actor) 131,900 in chips

Sam Simon (television producer) 172,000

-- There are six women still playing in the main event.

He is tied for the record with Chris Jesus Ferguson (2003), Humberto Brenes (2006), and Phil Hellmuth (2006) all with eight cashes in a single year.

-- On Day 1-A, the first elimination of the 2007 WSOP took place when a player was dealt A-A and lost to another player with the A-K of clubs. Three clubs flopped making a flush, which meant the first casualty of the World Series went out just moments after the start of the tournament.

Gutshot regular (and regular casher) Priyan Demel is enjoying himself. He started the day on 285k and looks to have about the same at the end of the half-level left over from yesterday.

Craig Edwards from Cleethorpes looks like he slept better than Willie Tann, which is suprising considering they started the day with 142k and 475k respectively.

Paul Kershaw from Manchester is at one of the feature tables. He started the day with a "Triple Nelson" of chips, 333k. We hope that in poker, unlike cricket, this is not an ill omen.

Lag, Tag, and Bobtail.

Hendon Mob journalist, Adam Noone (the Tag), is enjoying his moment in the spotlight next to Gus Hansen (the Lag). I think I heard the dealer say his name was Robert Tail (Bobtail).



There has been much debate amongst the Mob reporters as to which side you would prefer to have Gus on, if you had to sit next to him. I think I'd want him on my left (I know I'm conceding position but I don't want him raising the crap out of me every hand). However, Adam doesn't have the luxury of choosing.

Pass the Port.

A vintage first level for Al Rapoport: he's up to what looks like around 300k from a start of 130k.
