When spectators enter the Amazon Room to sweat the World Series of Poker, they always look for the biggest names. As reporters, we're constantly faced with the same questions:
"Is Phil Ivey playing?"
"Where's Daniel Negreanu?"
"Have you seen Phil Hellmuth?"
And so on, and so forth. Well, let us be the first to tell you that Table 430 in the Purple Section may be the most entertaining table you'll see all year. In the first six seats, you have Bryan Micon, Raymond Davis, Sam Grizzle, Robert Williamson III, Jared Bleznick, and Pat Pezzin. A few moments ago, Grizzle folded split aces preflop, and he tossed them over to Pezzin face up.
"It's a stupid game when those aren't good," Pezzin joked, tossing them into the muck.
Grizzle asked the dealer to scramble the cards, and Micon protested, saying that washing the cards is a waste of time. He also tried to give a number as to how many hours a day are wasted waiting for a dealer to wash the cards - unsurprisingly, that didn't impress Grizzle.
"Ok Einstein," Grizzle told him. "Didn't that impress y'all?"
Grizzle went on to say that Russ Hamilton had the greatest "scrambler" of all time, because he never lost.
Just now, RW3 (not to be confused with RG3, or Robert Griffin III) just leapt out of his chair to catch the end of a horse race. Evidently, he selected the first four horses correctly, scoring him a very rare superfecta.
If you're at the Rio right now, and you want to be entertained, don't watch Ivey play in silence. Come to Table 430 in the Purple Section, and we'll guarantee you'll have some laughs.
