Picture I.D. Sir


Teddy "Iceman" Monroe was just seen trying to take his seat. After he handed over his registration card, the dealer promptly asked, "Picture I.D. sir?"

"Picture I.D.?" the Monroe responded somewhat astonished. I guess not everyone knows who the Iceman is.

Sebok Off to a Good Start


Joe Sebok was all in preflop from the big blind with {Q-Hearts}{Q-Spades} and was off to the races against the button's {A-Diamonds}{K-Hearts}.

Sebok was safe on the {3-Diamonds}{J-Spades}{3-Spades} flop and just need to dodge an ace, king or running straight cards. He managed to do so when the {6-Diamonds} came on the turn. The dealer then burned and revealed the river, it was the harmless {4-Spades}.

Sebok doubled on the hand and is already up to 5,800.

Day 1B Set to Begin


Day 1B of Event #47 $1,000 No Limit Hold'em is set to begin in about a half hour. Yesterday, 1,759 players started the day, but only 257 players survived. They will be joined by those who make it through today on Monday for Day 2 of the tournament and a chance at a WSOP gold bracelet.

However, Antonio Esfandiari, Matt Glantz, Lars Bonding, André Akkari, and Scott Montgomery all managed to make it to Day 2. What pros will enter the event today? Even more importantly, who will rise to the top and become a serious contender for the win?
