    I can’t think of many players who would be a better representative for poker than Alex Outhred. He’s a great guy, and I’m really rooting for him to reach the final nine.

    There’s a friend of Up For Poker (FOUFP) who’s stacked at 88K going into Day 3 named Jena Delk, a woman, who I think would make for a nice mention on this standard-bearing poker blog for women poker players everywhere!
