From tonight's WWdN on Poker Stars
Holding the hammer in early position, I smartly raise from T50 to T175. Beck decides to unwisely reraise to T450. Naturally, I push my T1360.
"well, here goes the tournament," Beck says after calling.
I show my powerful hand and Beck shows the lowly Big Slick. It wasn't even suited!
"HAMMER!" respected actor Wil Wheaton exclaimed.
"knew it," Beck said, resignation evident in his key strokes.
The PokerStars dealer laid out the cards: 2h 5d Tc.
The PokerStars dealer laid out the next card: Ad.
"oof," alan said, apparently unaware the hand was not yet over.
The PokerStars dealer laid out the river: 2c.
"suckout!" team PokerStars member Wil Wheaton exclaimed, followed by alan's, "wow," and then Beck's, "knew it." Finally, Stand By Me's Gordie yelled, "RESUCK."
The final word goes to the teen actor shot dead by terrorists in the classic flick, Toy Soldiers, "in an empty room in las vegas, phil hellmuth just felt a serious disturbance in the force."
If you're going to wield the hammer, respect its power. (Oh, and I was at the Playboy Mansion... happy April?)
