Daniel Negreanu Leading 2010 WPT LAPC

We'll give you the LAPC, we'll take the gold in hockey today. Fair trade.

Lots of big names among the leaders at the 2010 WPT LA Poker Classic.

At the top of the leaderboard is arguably poker’s biggest name, Daniel Negreanu. With 188 remaining, Negreanu is stacked at 316,500. He’s followed by Eugene Katchalov 290,000. In third overall is Duke grad Vanessa Rousso, a woman, who went to Duke, with 225,000.

Lisa Hamilton, a woman, Erica Schoenberg, a woman, Annie Duke, a woman, Dee Leuong, a woman, Jennifer Tilly, a woman, Christina Lindley, a woman, and JJ Liu, a woman, also remain, although none of them went to Duke.

That’s about all of the poker for us today. Time to focus on the U-S-A vs. Canada gold medal hockey game this afternoon. Time to pay back our northern neighbors for 10 years of Nickelback. While we give the Canucks some shit from time to time, we do love them. But…we will never, ever, EVER forgive them for Nickelback. Pay back is a bitch.

Get full chip counts here.

    Nickelback???? You’re complaining about Nickleback???
    From the country that inflicted Miley Cyrus, Brittney Spears, and TACO upon the world???

    Come on fellas….. and don’t even bring up Celine Dion, ‘cos her degenerate svengali husband bought a lot of houses for a lot of poker players, so that one’s a wash…

    yeah, but unless you roll with 12-year-old girls britney spears and miley cyrus are avoidable. there’s always some dickhole at work putting on bryan adams or alanis morissette.

    and for the record, taco is dutch.

    Man you guys were the big winners today…

    And by that I don’t mean the Gold medal, ’cause we took that and most of the other Golds for that matter. Nice call on that one. I suppose betting on the US would have netted you more cash in a sports book, but really you would have been better off lighting a match to some green bills.

    Anyway, I digress…. I mean because Nickelback feat. Chad Kroeger and his new shitty Andy Warhol haircut rocked out the Closing Ceremonies along with Morisette, and Arvil, and every other cheesy artist my country has pumped out over the last 15 years for your enjoyment. If we’re groaning up here, surely it must have pained you to bear witness to it down there.
    Although I suspect the majority of you changed the channel immediately after Crosby’s goal. If so, you were the wise ones.
