Day 5 is now underway at the LAPC and they're down to 19 players already. Among them is noted hustler and regular on the poker scene Teddy "The Iceman" Monroe, who was in his usual form yesterday at the Commerce. Check out this video of The Iceman boasting he's the best player in the world. Or at least one of them.
While Iceman is hanging in there today at the bottom of the count, Chris Karagulleyan, Payman Arjang and Chris "Jesus" Ferguson lead the field, or as we like to say, they're winning. Play will stop at 6 for the final TV table. WPT is still on TV right?

Semi-related to the above, how to tell if diamonds are fake.
