Two or three years ago at Bellagio I'll never forget the day when I was cashing out and Johnny Chan happened to be at the poker room cage doing the same. Obviously it's Johnny Chan so I'm trying to check out how many chips he is cashing out. He turns around looks me up and down, whispers a few words to the cashier, enters a side door and disappears. Now I'm just a 1/2 fish and had no clue a side door even existed lol. The next day when I go to cash out one of the cashiers who I have established a good friendly relationship with starts laughing hysterically when I walk up. He goes on to tell me that Johnny Chan told the other cashier that I looked like a thug and he wanted to cash out in private.
Damn internet punks!
Now we all know Phil Ivey is the stone cold nuts no question. During a WPT event the poker room was packed obviously, I'm taking a break outside, when here he comes. Phil mf Ivey! He is with Patrik Antonius and three girls 7/10. It was packed to the brim with people waiting for seats, yet they showed up and the red sea parted instantly. Two minutes later I walked back inside and just happened to be at the table next to Bobby's room. Unfortunately it was so packed that they left shortly after they arrived. Normally I never take pictures, but one time I could not pass up the opportunity. The high stakes area was basically dead at the time so I figured no big deal. "Sir you are not allowed to take pictures" OOPS! Oh well I would have plenty more chances the year Ivey final tabled the Me. More on that later.....
I will post more pictures later and take new ones now that I am able to and have a reason to do so.
