August is usually a brutally slow time for poker news (although we’ve had a few surprisingly good stories this month).
Fortunately August hasn’t been a brutally slow time for pictures of Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. The Victoria’s Secret model is a Brit, and she’s the chick who is going to replace Megan Fox in Transformers 3, something you probably didn’t know if you’re over the age of 12. Victoria’s Secret is kinda like the SEC of hot international models. All of the talent goes there these days. Well played, VS.
Anyway, more pics below or here. On with the poker news…
