2007 WSOP Updates: Brandi Hawbaker Isn’t a Slut; Vinnie Vinh Isn’t Dead

Brandihawbakerwsop2:: During a WSOP break, WCP fave Brandi Hawbaker issued a statement on 2+2 pulling a Peter Cetera and defending her honor. In it, Brandi says:

"What troubles me the most is that very few people know me, yet I am continually referred to as being a ‘theif’ and a ‘whore’. This could not be further from the truth."

This is somewhat disappointing to us, cause we kind of dig morally casual thiefy chicks. Probably explains the 147 times one of us has woken up in a Vegas hotel, handcuffed to the bed, with our wallets missing after some girl told us she wanted to knock boots and listen to us talk about ourselves for a few hours. As we’ve said before, fool us once, shame on you…fool us 147 times, shame on us. Read the full 2+2 thread here.

:: The Vinnie Vinh rumor mill continues to swirl, with the latest grill for the mist (or whatever that fucking phrase is) coming from Shane "Shaniac" Schlegler. In a 2+2 post, Shaniac says:

"I heard from his backer that he’s alive and that he’s done this before. If I had to guess, I would say his current substance problem is meth not crack. Crack doesn’t hasten the physical changes that were evident in Vinnie the way I understand meth does."

We’ve spoken with numerous pros about this (off the record), all who’ve lamented they think Vinh is currently "on meth." They all noted how thin Vinh appeared at the start of the WSOP, some not even recognizing him until he referred to himself in third person. Trust us*, meth is bad. And by "bad" we mean "fucking rad."
