2014 World Series of Poker

Event #23: $1,000 Turbo No-Limit Hold'em
Days: 1

Drinking Roses

Level 9 : 300-600, 75 ante

We caught a conversation between Ireland's Dermot Blain and a Russian gentleman at Blain's table. Blain was puzzled as to what was in his opponent's drink bottle, as it looked half-full with a white material.

"Roses. It's roses," said the Russian before adding, "I bring my own here, it helps me to sleep."

Another player quipped that he was surprised customs let him into the country with roses in his suitcase, stating, "Those guys usually won't let you bring a sandwich from the plane into the country!"
