Listen, we know they’re not the same person. One is Asian, the other isn’t. Errrrr, that’s all we got. But since Maria Ho went deep in a WSOP event this weekend, we’ll put some selfies of her attached-at-the-hip bff Tiffany Michelle up to celebrate. Any excuse, works for us.
Some 2013 WSOP weekend updates…
:: Event #37 ($5,000 Limit Hold’em) – Another not 21-23 year-old takes this down. Michael Moore, a 147 year-old from Ager, SD, banks his first bracelet after playing in the WSOP for 78 straight years. Moore finished 10th in the 1995 Main Event. For the win, Moore banks $211,743. Side note: a very smart friend of ours made an interesting comment about all the old-timers/non-21 year-olds winning bracelets this year: “The 21-23 year-olds haven’t been able to log the hands in online.” We buy it.

:: Event #38 ($2,500 NLH 4-Handed) – David “The Dragon” Pham* leads the final 8 with 911,000. John Juanda also remains with 466,000. Maria Ho finished 26th for $7,004. Get full chip counts here.
:: Event #39 ($1,500 7CS 8oB) – Matt Vengrin leads this one with 17 remaining. Also still in is Linda Johnson, a woman. Phil Hellmuth secured his 99th WSOP cash in this event. His next cash will give him Michael Moore’s age in WSOP cashes. Get full chip counts here.
Finally, in 2013 WSOP Player of the Year news, Daniel Negreanu still holds a slight lead over myster-wrapped-up-in-enigma Tom Schneider. Great comment from a top pro to us about Schneider:
He’s like Tim Tebow. We don’t know how he does it, but he just wins.
