We make mistakes.
Not often but it does happen. Like that time we were hooking up with that girl Bobbie Sue in her double wide down in Daytona while her ultimate fighting boyfriend was supposedly at work at the Jiffy Lube. Big mistake.
Along the same lines but totally different, the other day (Day 3 in WSOP speak)
Truth be told though (and is always the case here at Wicked Chops Poker), we actually found out pretty soon after announcing Casey’s demise that PokerWire.com was wrong and that he indeed was still in, but he was so severely shortstacked at the time that we thought his elimination was just a few hands away. It was kind of like the “Bring out your dead…but I’m not dead yet” guy in Monty Python’s Search for the Holy Grail. He wasn’t out yet but he soon would be. Kastle turned out though to be more like the “Just a flesh wound…I’ll bite your knee caps” guy, crippled in chips but impressively lasting through Day 3 and all the way up until just an hour ago here on Day 5.
Late last night after the end of Day 4, we asked Kastle about reports of his demise in the Main Event.
“Yeh, I heard people were reporting that,” Casey said. “I was actually getting phone calls from friends saying, ‘Casey, I’m sorry about what happened,’ and I was wondering if someone had died or something.”
Kastle’s run at the WSOP finally came to an end today during the first level. He finished 119th and cashed $51,129. For more on Casey Kastle, check out Mike Sexton’s CardPlayer article on him here.
