This Father's Day weekend saw bracelet after bracelet awarded. Johnny "World" Hennigan conquered the 10K HORSE event for his 5th career bracelet. A particularly brutal river card lifted Gal Yilfrach over James Mackey in the 3k 6-max event. And somehow three more events crowned their champion with Hanh Tran, Ryan Bambrick, and Steven Albini all taking home their first WSOP gold. How did they do it? Their story along with news about Doyle Brunson's retirement in this weekend's Hit and Run.
The World Series of Poker is in full swing and as expected big names are making big headlines. 2009 Main Event Champ Joe Cada won his thrid bracelet, denying Joe McKeehen, who was going for the same. Daniel Negreanu and company are back playing the 100k Super High Roller - and DNegs is back blogging the whole thing. And finally, Phil Ivey made his triumphant return to the WSOP, but so far has come up empty. All those stories and more in the weekend edition of the Hit and Run.

It's all here and more in the weekend edition of the Hit and Run.
The Wynn looks to distance itself from its founder. Video games begin to be classified as a gambling. And the Borgata Spring Poker Open awards TWO players a quarter million bucks. It's all in today's Hit 'n' Run.
