If there's a table that you don't want to be at in Event #74: $1,111 Little One for One Drop, it's probably William Kassouf's table...

But it's probably not for the reason you're thinking.

Along with Kassouf sits a set of recognizable poker players, all of whom boast a list of impressive results. Take for example Sorel Mizzi, whose 42 World Series of Poker cashes surpass $1,000,000. Or Allyn Shulman, who holds a World Series of Poker gold bracelet, along with nearly $800,000 in WSOP earnings.

Perhaps the table can also be a good experience for players by playing with one of poker's biggest mouth's in the game, Kassouf, or author Maria Konnikova, who sits at the table as well.

William Kassouf recently faced off against one other player on a {A-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}{3-Clubs} flop. The player bet 200, and Kassouf called. The {2-Clubs} came on the turn.

"That's the money card," Kassouf said. "Uh oh, they're blogging this one, Alex. The boys are going to be watching you from Birmingham. They're gonna say, 'Why did you try to bluff Kassouf, man? You know he always has it?' I got you, man. I got the nuts. Don't bluff."

Kassouf's erratic talk eventually led to a check from the player he called Alex. Kassouf fired out 600, which was roughly a pot-sized bet, and Alex folded.

"It's good for the game," Kassouf said. "I'll show you one. I hit the deuce." Kassouf showed the {2-Hearts} and then began rambling about wanting Maria Konnikova to straddle. "I promise it will be live. No, get your mind out of the gutter, not straddle like that."
