What a sick hand…Will played great the whole tournament….this is the hand that took him out:
Lin raised to $60,000 and was called by Terence Chan. The flop came AQ3, Chan checks and Lin bets. Chan check raised all in and it took Lin only a seconds to call with AJ. He celebrates when Chan shows A6 but the turn comes 6 and Chan takes the lead in the hand. Things got confusing during the webcast when commentator Howard David mistakenly called the action as if Chan had just lost the hand and had busted. Once the confusion had been taken care of, Lin was taken from the tent in third place for a $196,758 payday.
Congratulats go out to Will, although our condolences on the tough finish.

Congratulations to Brian, another PROP player @ the ME!

Shortly after busting out of the $5,000 PLO WSOP tournament on Thursday 6/14, David Williams decided he wasn’t going to be finished for the day.
As if there weren’t enough poker tournaments going on in Vegas during June-July, the Bellagio is also hosting a series of events called the Bellagio Cup III. Well, David entered the $5,000 NL event. After ‘flipping a coin’, he had black and 0 on the roulette wheel, to Roland deWolfe’s Red, he was freerolling in this event.

Here is a quote I just read from Sir Albert Einstein himself:
The idea of achieving security through national armament is, at the present state of military technique, a disastrous illusion.
Pretty Relevant to today’s state of affairs, don’t ya think?
Online poker sites make in excess of $1,000,000 a day in revenue…needless to say PROP is in the wrong business.
