WSOP 2015: The 2015 November Nine

After a long 11 days, and an even longer summer, the World Series of Poker is at an end, for now at least. The four month hiatus between the last hand of the Summer and the start of the November Nine starts now. The names of those players are now known, but it is perhaps the name that isn't there th...more

WSOP 2015: Daniel Negreanu just misses November Nine

I have seen crowd favorites. I have seen them all over the world. I have seen hometown heroes, superstars, and Cinderella stories. I have seen crowds rally around a person for no reason other than it felt like the right thing to do at the time. I thought I had seen it all.I have never see any person...more

WSOP 2015: Negreanu not done yet

There has been a sense of momentum to Daniel Negreanu's progress today. Not like that of Joe McKeehen, who seems unstoppable. Instead Negreanu looks and plays like a man who doesn't need the most chips, he just needs enough. Shortly before the dinner break those watching found themselves wondering w...more

WSOP 2015: Negreanu goes old school on way to November Nine

It was perhaps the most dramatic hand of the tournament so far. Just before the last break, Matt Guan raised to 400,000 and got three-bet by Joe McKeehen. Negreanu, sitting with ace-king, made it 2.6 million. Guan got out of the way, but McKeehen moved all-in for 9.8 million. Negreanu tanked hard, b...more

WSOP 2015: Don't count Kid Poker out yet

I was prepared to let Daniel Negreanu go to his trailer and steam during the last break. We had scheduled this interview last night, but by the time the first full break happened today, Negreanu's stack had dwindled down below the six million mark, far below the 40 million he hoped to end the day wi...more

WSOP 2015: Daniel Negreanu daring to think November Nine

There was a moment today when we thought we were counting time until Daniel Negreanu, graciously, and gracefully, bowed out of the World Series of Poker Main Event. Coming back today he was below average stacked, surrounded by bigger stacks, and apparently dependent on good fortune to rescue his Mai...more

WSOP 2015: What are 1,000 FPPs worth? A career.

If you went to the PokerStars VIP Store right now with 1,000 Frequent Player Points, it would buy you two small foam stress toys in the shape of sharks. Don't get me wrong. It's a good buy. You can throw those sharks against a computer screen all day and never worry about damaging even a pixel. But ...more

WSOP 2015: A coda and a cull

I'm standing in the middle of the Rio's Amazon Room, and I'm thinking about dead people. I'm thinking of a dead couple in a pink Cadillac. I'm thinking of a body falling out of the back of a trash truck. I'm thinking of a frozen corpse in a meat truck. What I'm thinking of, to put a finer point on i...more

WSOP 2015: Daniel Negreanu headed to Day 6 of Main Event

This just got officially interesting.Yes, the WSOP is always interesting, and yes, there has been many a good story come out of the Main Event, but it's been a long, long damned time since anyone has seen Daniel Negreanu on Day 6 of the WSOP. Tomorrow we'll see that very thing. Negreanu finished the...more

WSOP 2015: Negreanu & Agarwal march toward final 100

Somewhere right now, Daniel Negreanu is eating tofu, and if we're to believe him, it tastes especially good tonight. Kid Poker came into Day 5 with an average chip stack, but within a few hours, it had dwindled to less than half of what it had been. At once, it seemed like the crowd favorite would s...more
