From Around the Rio During Day 1d of the 2007 WSOP…


Chops of interviews Vinnie Vinh outside the Rio on Day 1d of the 2007 World Series of Poker.

Some things we’ve heard/seen:

:: It was discussed today that Bernard Lee will have a picture of the Entities that comprise Wicked Chops Poker (instead of his kids) on Day 2 of the WSOP that he will kiss for good luck. It was discussed.

:: Reports have ranged regarding Phil Hellmuth‘s car crash that the 11-time WSOP bracelet winner is suffering whiplash, severe back strain, light back strain, and hardly anything. Having seen him enter the WSOP with 11 super hot models earlier today (pictures coming), if anything on Hellmuth is feeling stiff, it’s probably not his back.

:: Gavin Smith DID wear his jester outfit today…but only for about 20 minutes. He called Joe Sebok early on and bought out of the bet.

:: And yes…it is true…we did talk to Vinnie Vinh. He is playing Day 1d. Expect video footage of our conversation tomorrow.

    holy FUCK! you talked to VV? that’s like an interview with the Pope.
    my favorite part of the Hellmuth crash was the way he got out of the car and pointed at the cement pillar – just like he points at the board after an opponent puts a beat on him or makes a winning call against him that he deems “novice”… great stuff.
