So over the past few days we’ve been asked on a number of occasions why we refer to J.C. Tran as the "spectacularly-breasted J.C. Tran" (above) as well as "What’s up with ‘Salty’ Joe Hachem?" and "Hey is Lorenzo Lamas really in the Seven Card Stud Championship?"
With a bunch of new readers during WSOP time (and many more non-traditional as we welcome withleather.com, the Beer Goggler, NY Times Freakonomics blog, SportsbyBrooks, Rock 107, Drunken Stepfather, and errr, Google)

:: Star of Meerkat Manor Jeff Madson – Comes soley from
:: Lee Watkinson/Markholt and Jason Lester/Al Krux – When you cover as much poker as we do and meet as many personalities, many start just blending together. And then some just actually look like the same guy. But flashback to the 2005 WSOP. Chops kept reporting to Snake about Jason Lester doing well, but it turned out to be Al Krux. Or maybe it was the other way around. Really, what’s the difference?
Even scarier though is
:: Glum Girl Svetlanna Gromenkova – Do we really need
:: David "The Dragon" Pham* – David "The Dragon" Pham scares people because they think he’s a real dragon. But even Kimberly Lansing
