Event 34 - $3,000 Limit Holdem

2006 Reigning Champ Eliminated

Bill Chen was eliminated from the tournament holding {A-Spades}{6-Hearts} against an opponent's {A-Clubs}{5-Hearts}. Shortstacked, Bill put the last of his money into the pot with the board showing {4-Spades}{5-Diamonds}{10-Spades}.

The turn and river brought no help to either player and Chen's Ace-high lost to his opponent's pair of 5's.

Daredevil Devonshire

Word has it that Bryan Devonshire just made a $100 prop bet that he can drive a wheelchair across the room wearing goggles and a helmet, while doing a continuous wheelie without stopping.

A guy who calls himself "Crazy Mike" has taken him up on the bet, and said, "it's more of a challenge than flipping a coin." The two have been flipping coins for $100 a pop all night long.

More to come.

Doyle's Influence Spreads Far and Wide

Though he was not one of our 296 entrants in today's tournament, Doyle Brunson's presence is still being felt out in the Player's Pavilion.

On a board showing Q-J-2, the action was checked around to Annie Duke, who took a stab at the pot; she was called by a single opponent.

The turn brought a King and both players checked, opting to see the river. The last card off the deck was a 10, and again both Duke and her opponent knuckled the felt. Duke's opponent said, "two pair," before turning over 10-2 offsuit, the hand made famous by Doyle Brunson who won two World Championships with it.

Duke wasn't amused and subtly shook her head as she tossed her cards in the muck.
