Vinnie Vinh failed to show up for Day 2 of Event #30 $2,500 Short-handed. This is the second time this has happened at the 2007 WSOP. Vinh had been missing for over a week before he showed up at the Rio to play over the weekend. Althigh his behavior was erratic late on Day 1 of this event, he made the money and advanced to Day 2.
Without a doubt, this is probably the saddest story in poker at the WSOP this year. There has been speculation of rampant drug abuse and judging by his emaciated appearence and behavior, the facts point to a serious problem.
