June 1, 2013 WSOP Update from the Wookie in Las Vegas

Random news and tidbits from the World Series of Poker, in no particular order (let's just call it hectic!)....

Head on over to SealsWithClubs (.eu) for BitCoin poker which you can play on browser, PC client, or Anroid Client.  You can find Seals Team members in the signature green and yellow hats.
I railed @Gank and @BryanMicon for a while but didn't see Scott Fischman, along side Norman Chad, Daniel Negreanu, Mike Matusow, Jen Harman , Cindy Violette, Eli Elezra, David Bakes Baker, George Danzer, and many other notables in this event, which is down to just 19 now!  Thanks PokerNews for great reporting as always .. except where is DMBakes flag icon, and you mispelled Jen's last name! ;)

(Micon, NormanChad, Matusow, Negreanu, and others..)

I won the @ARIAPoker hat in a twitter contest. They also have @ARIAPokerLive for table updates. I miss playin there, it's been a little while... has a 100k Freeroll, you can sign up for free and reserve your online name now at the Rio (and probably online as well?)

We railed @RexClinkscales late into the night for a $20k cash in 10th in Event #4  He just recently won his circuit ring after 15(?) final tables, and here is a nice little interview with our favorite Pretty Broad, Lynn Gilmartin,

Here is your TL;DR report from PokerNews which sums up most of the day in about a few mins (about tree fiddy)...

So many showed up for the Millionaire Maker, that you would have thought it was the main event, and there was a very carnival type atmosphere and lots of energy all over the Rio.

Good times were had at the infamous @HookerBar (Bring your local ID for 50% off!)  So many friends are playing that it's hard to rail them all!  Thankfully many of my friends are in the poker media, and I have an advantage at following more than my fair share of events.  My feet are tired and blistered though, and it's still early in the summer.

I'll definitely be railing Geoff Lay aka CajunDragon (whom I have a piece of this year) and @BartHanson who has his own poker site over at Seat Open Poker (.net) (you may have seen me sporting this shirt) and is notorious for @LiveAtTheBike .
I'll also be sporting my @AsianSpa rungood from the TruthSpeaker and #TeamSpa (just who *IS* this mystery person??)  I'll never tell!

Remember to follow me @TheWookieWay for Poker/Games/Tech/Music/Positive tweets, @PokerParadox for Poker related tweets ONLY, and now @GamersParadox for tweets from the Video Gaming world where I also blog over at

See you on Twitter or at the Rio!
