This week on my Final Table poker show, we continued our coverage of the 2010 World Series Of Poker and the Latin American Poker Tour, with me in St. Louis and Dennis Phillips in Lima, Peru. We talked about his adventures as captain of the America’s Cup team, which had a big run to the finals, and the question of whether accused murderer Joran Van Der Sloot was supposed to play in the same LAPT tournament Dennis was in.
In WSOP news, we covered:
- Tom Dwan making a final table in a $1500 buy-in no-limit hold’em event, which drew lots of attention because several high-stakes poker pros had big bets against him getting a bracelet;
- Phil Laak’s record-setting session of 115 consecutive hours in a $10/20 no-limit game at Bellagio as a fundraiser for Camp Sunshine;
- My experience in the live-action cash games at the Rio all week; and more
Then we were joined by Team PokerStars Pro Vanessa Rousso, who announced her brand new iPhone App (Poker 1 On 1 With Vanessa Rousso), remembered her first experience at the WSOP (where she passed out and still made a deep run!), and offered some advice for playing sit-and-go qualifiers.
We had planned to include our interview with Chino Rheem in this show, but we ran short, so we’ll have that for you on a future show.
