From the WSOP rail: Lucky ladies, Moses and chip counting lessons

11 Jul 2007

By Vin Narayanan

The action might be on the felt, but the fun is on the rail. Here's a quick look at the sights and sounds from Day 2B of the World Series of Poker.

The lady has a point

Overheard at Table 39 just before a break:

"I've got it better than you guys," says the lone women at the table. "There are no lines at the bathroom for me."

The tables breaks into laughter and one player notes "it's probably the only time in history that will happen."

Counting lessons

Chip Jett is very good at counting chips. So good, in fact, that he spent part of the afternoon giving chip-counting lessons to a dealer.

"Don't ever count chips like that," Jett told a dealer as she stacked up an all-in bet. "You'll knock them over." Minutes later, a small stack went all in against Jett and won. As the dealer began counting, Jett said it was $51,600. A minute later, the dealer confirmed it was $51,600 and an annoyed Jett pushed a stack of chips over to the winning player.

Moses makes an appearance

Some players use their chips as card protectors. Others use something more personalized -- like Moses. That's right, one player at this year's WSOP used a small figurine of Moses to protect his cards. It doesn't look like Moses was helping this player with cards though. His stack was one of the shortest in the room.

Hate the game, not the player

Some players get disgusted even when they're not involved in a pot. After a player at Table 45 won a significant pot with pocket Aces, another turned to me and said in lilting British accent:

"I get no action when I get that hand. No one bets. No one calls. This guy wins a huge pot. Disgusting."
