With great players come great responsibility. Today marks a celebration of 50 years of the World Series of Poker, coming as it does after the First 50 Years Honor Dinner, but it’s also another day at this year’s WSOP. Who had the most to say and who are leaving their talk at the table?
ROSTER HAVING FUN WITH NEGREANU
Kevin ‘Racks’ Roster has been having the time of his life on his Las Vegas journey at the World Series of Poker, his dying wish after being diagnosed with Sarcoma, a rare form of cancer. He even sat down with Daniel Negreanu and asked him to follow his social media page. The trouble was…
So @KevinRacksPoker tells me to follow him on Twitter and I obliged even though he doesn’t follow me!!! 😂😂😂

SEXTON THANKS LEGENDS
Mike Sexton is one of poker’s good guys, but he took time out to pay tribute to two of his own heroes in the game, men who brought poker into the modern age thanks to their vision and passion for the game.
At the First 50 Honors dinner tonight @WSOP. The whole poker world owes these guys a debt we cannot repay – the guys that started it all – Jack Binion & @TexDolly (Doyle Brunson). #truelegends #wsop pic.twitter.com/Wqsbcz6IpG

TEXAS DOLLY’S BAD BEAT STORY
On the back of reading all about the worst bad beat of all time, Doyle Brunson had his own to recount. Well, it involved a Brunson…

MCDONALD TALKING AT CROSSBOOK PURPOSES
Mike McDonald talks about his Main Event, where he’s pitched himself for crossbooking against anyone. Wait, anyone? Uncle Ron on Line 1.
Let's run it back: I'll crossbook myself against anyone in the WSOP main. Terms:
1) Max 20%, min 5%
2) Any payout >2.5mm is treated as 2.5mm
3) You lay 1.1-1 (this will come down if you wait a few days I just want to get laid a price against those who will obviously get capped)

ALL ABOUT THE MATHS
Team Poker Central still lead the $25k Fantasy League, with Team Maths just a few points behind. What’s their secret? Well, Jeremy Ausmus’ result in The Colossus is what currently separates Poker Central’s own team from the rest. With just over a fortnight to go, can they hang onto their lead, and will they need a thousand points to lock up the title?
