WSOP Fun Find of the Day

Just read this; Phil Ivey has never won a bracelet in a No-Limit Hold 'em Event. According to wikipedia:
Bracelet summary
Year Tournament Prize (US$)
2000 $2,500 Pot Limit Omaha $195,000
2002 $2,500 7 Card Stud Hi/Lo $118,440
2002 $2,000 S.H.O.E. $107,540
2002 $1,500 7 Card Stud $132,000
2005 $5,000 Pot Limit Omaha $635,603
2009 $2,500 No-Limit 2-7 Draw Lowball $96,367
2009 $2,500 Omaha Hi/Lo / 7 Card Stud Hi/Lo $220,538

(Although I'm noticing a serious lack of No-Limit razz (Game of the Future ™). I should probably spend more time playing in the Big Game if I want to get better at my mixed games. Or at least visit CK more often in Vegas - Big Congrats BTW!)

Stick that in your pipe and smoke it Phil Hellmuth.

I suppose everyone else already knew this. Oh well. I slept like crap last night, my on-call pager is white hot from continual beeping since it decided to wake me up this morning long before my alarm clock and I'm way ready for nap. Bite me.

I downloaded the new IE on my laptop and it won't connect to your blog. Did you do something to piss off Bill Gates?

Not really sure, but I noticed that too. I hate IE and wish I knew what it did that made my page not work but I've noticed a bunch of other blogger blogs that don't work too.

I have foxfire at home, it works ok, and I have IE 7 at work and it gets here, too. Maybe a temporary blip?
