Today’s Card Player “LIKE YOU WERE THERE” Moment
Unless the 2006 WSOP is like the entities that comprise Wicked Chops Enterprises LLC and has the staying power and quick rebound abilities to create multiple climatic moments in a short period of time, then the 2006 WSOP might have already experienced its climax with the $50,000 H.O.R.S.E. event.
Because everything seems to be going downhill, from the actual play to the coverage of [the play].
Now if we were gay black men in the early 90’s, then we’d readily admit we gave Card Player "two snaps up in a circle" for finally upping their game during the H.O.R.S.E. event. Relatively speaking, their coverage of the H.O.R.S.E. tourney, while maybe not on par with other enterprises, was still top notch considering where they had previously set the bar. But with Chip Reese’s big win, an ugly hangover seems to be setting in across the Rio. One that may only be cured by a Hellmuth 10th bracelet or the onset of the Main Event. Nowhere is this hangover more evident than at Event #22 ($2,000 NLH, currently lead by Julian Gardner). We’re not sure what would make us want to kick ourselves repeatedly in the head more, actually having to be there to watch the play, or reading more updates like the one below…tough call.
