I was down in Las Vegas to catch the opening of the 2009 WSOP main event. Canadian and Pokerstars professional Daniel Negreanu started his journey on day 3 of the opening first days. Daniel is a great poker player and was featured at the feature table. I checked out the action for a bit and Daniel wasn't really doing all that well. He tried a bluff on a ragged flop only to lose the hand and then was shortstacked. Here is a short video of Daniel in another hand shortly after. In this particular hand Daniel got raised out.

Above are a few photos I took of poker professional Annie Duke and the one and only Doyle Brunson. Doyle was his crusty old self not wanting to sign autographs for his fans while Annie could not have been sweeter. ANnie was feeling a little under the weather yet she must have signed for a good 30 mins as you can see in the pictures. I'm a big fan of Annie's and have watched her many times from the rail. Doyle is obviously perhaps the greatest poker player but he's not the friendliest guy.
Here is a few pictures I took while out watching the WSOP main event. The Hershel Walker picture was actually taken at the Ante up for Africa tournament. Greg Raymer and Peter Eastgate I spotted walking around that same day.
