The Duck Thrives. Kid Poker's Alive. The Brat Has Died.
Okay, finally got a few minutes to surf properly and find the Day 4 chip counts and read some of the hand histories. I'm impressed to see that some big names are still in it. Freddy Deeb and Negreanu are both evidently alive and kicking (admittedly with short stacks). Joseph Cheong is going deep for the fourth year in a row, too. (But, alas, Phil the Brat is nowhere to be seen (yay!)). The big news for me, however, is the currently 15th place T1.8M stack that Vanessa "the duck" Sebst still has. I've been a fan of Vanessa for years, starting with a very entertaining series of PLO videos she did for DeucesCracked back in the day. It would be great to see a woman make the final table, and if anyone can do it, it's two-time bracelet winner Selbst. Quack, quack, go girl go.
All-in for now....
