2008 WSOP Day 1D Update: The Year of the Pro(TM) Had a Good Day


Shannon Elizabeth needs to show more leg at the 2008 WSOP Main Event. What’d we lose a war? Is this Pakistan?

Hopefully we’re not jumping the gun on this one as there is still an hour to go…but with many big name big stacks on Day 1D of the 2008 WSOP Main Event and few big knock-outs, let’s just say that The Year of the ProTM didn’t even have to use its AK.

With an hour to go, some big names with lots of chips include Carlos Mortensen, Aaron Kanter, Johnny Chan (who has done nothing funny this WSOP), Antonio Esfandiari, Jean-Robert Bellande (watch him pwn Charles Barkley again here), Gus Hansen, Allen Cunningham, Jen Harman, a woman, and Phil Hellmuth and his ego.

Also still alive though not thriving include Beth Shak (a woman), Jerry Yang, and Shannon Elizabeth and her legs (unfortunately not seen above).

Notable bust outs include Phil Ivey, David Williams, Chris “Jesus” Ferguson, Annie Duke, a woman, Patrick Bruel (has a hot girlfriend), Vinnie Vinh, Eskimo Clark, Tom Schneider, our favorite scarf-wearing Euro Dario Minieri, Michael “The Grinder” Mizrachi, Shaniac, and Layne Flack.

Guys who could kick our asses but won’t be around the Rio to do so because they’re out on Day 1D are Forrest Griffin, Chuck Liddell and Jose Canseco.
