Above is head-banging poker hottie Liv Boeree and the last chick standing at the 2007 WSOP Main Event Maria Ho playing at the 2008 World Series of Poker. Liv, a woman, was in the field yesterday for Event No. 2 – $1,500 No-Limit Hold’em and mentioned that she “went deep and got it in ahead and that’s what matters.” So we guess that means she’s out. Maria Ho, also a woman, is playing today in Event No. 4 – $5k Mixed Hold’em.

Updating you on the action from the floor of the WSOP, there are three events underway today at the Rio, including Day 2 of the $1,500 NLH event. 180 players remain from the nearly 4000 who started Event No. 2 and Ginikachukwu Izuogu (<- no way that's a real name) is out front with 305,000 in chips, David Bach (6th at 2007 LAPC) is in second with 288,000 in chips and Ryan D’Angelo is third with 237,000. Notables still in include Chris “Jesus” Ferguson, Theo Tran, Kenny Tran, Shaniac, Aaron Kanter, Arnold Spee, and Terrence Chan. They have to play down to the final 9 before action stops so we’re guessing they’ll still be going when we wake up tomorrow afternoon.

Both Event No. 3 ($1,500 Pot Limit Hold’em) and Event No. 4 ($5k Mixed Hold’em) started today with the former drawing a decent 713 entrants and already down to 198. David Singer leads the pro heavy field last we checked. Get the latest chip counts here.

Event No. 4 was the late start today and had 333 players enter, with most of the field consisting of players who busted early from Event No. 3. Brit pro Ben Grundy holds the early chip lead with 32,000, and big names over 20k in chips already include Bill Chen, Ralph Perry, Bill Edler, Berry Johnston, Eric Froelich, and Phil Ivey.

Okay, this is really tiring. Time for a nap.

WSOP updates here. If you speak French, maybe here.

    I’m 97.5% certain that the girl in the center photo at the bottom of this entry is none other than Mrs. Patrik Antonius — Maya. You’d never guess by looking at her that she recently had a child.
