Phil Laak talks about mucking the winning hand in a pot:
And here was the action in question:
WPT update: At the same site as the Big Game, the World Poker Tour Vienna is going on, and is in the middle of day 3. You can get live updates here. Benjamin “neverscaredb” Wilinofsky is the current chip leader; also still alive are Eugene Katchalov, Yevgeniy Timoshenko and Andy Frankenberger with about 30 players left.
Richest poker tourney ever: The $1 million buy-in event at the World Series of Poker will make someone the richest winner of a poker tournament ever. With 30 seats spoken for, first prize will eclipse $12 million. Get the skinny here, with a rundown of who is committed.
Carbon’s free odds calculator: Pretty cool free feature from Carbon that you can read about here. It’s actually better than just an “odds calculator”; it compiles stats, has a heads-up display overlay on tables, etc. much like PokerTracker and Hold’em Manager.
Hey Utah, stay out of it: It’s bad enough that Utah has banned online poker. Now they are taking their message to the federal government. The governor of the state sent a letter to some congressmen voicing his opposition to online poker and gaming regulation. To that, we say “Boooooooo.”
