Tony, Geee That's a Nice Hand

Tony G has been dealt aces again, taking down another little pot.

"Tony, how much do you pay these guys?" asks Rafi Amit.

"They're just good friends," he replies, looking like the cat that got the cream.

Tom Dwan is Gone

Big three-way pot between Tom Dwan, Eli Elezra, and Ted Lawson.

I caught the action on the turn when Dwan went all in for the rest of his chips on a board of: {A-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}{3-Spades}{8-Clubs}. Lawson bet the pot and Eli went into the tank for a very long time.

He ended up folding and Lawson showed {A-Spades}{A-Clubs}XX

Dwan had {9-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}XX for a flush draw.

River was a {3-Clubs} and Dwan was out.

A small consolation was that he won £50 from Andy Bloch in some sort of river card prop.

So he is just £4950 down now.

PokerNews Video: Michael Binger - Going for a Record??

Michael Binger
Michael Binger ended the WSOP with eight cashes after taking a two-outer in the Main Event while on course to possibly cash. This is notable because eight cashes ties the record for most in one year, and nine would have broken it. According to Jeffrey Pollack, he regards these events as events numbers 56, 57, and 58 of the 2007 World Series of Poker. Therefore, we have to ask: if Michael Binger cashes in one of these events, does he break the record for WSOP cashes in one year? If the bracelets count, why wouldn't the cashes? We talked to Michael about his tournament thus far and about this much talked-about issue.

Click here to check out the interview with Michael, along with all the other videos from this event.
