Just a few days of action remain at the 2019 World Series of Poker, but players of all levels are still loving life inside the Rio…or outside in the torrential rain! Yes, we’re talking showers all round here on the final Friday as one of the busiest periods of the summer has sent many players a little crazy.
GREENWOOD GETTING STYLISH OVER BUST-OUT
Sam Greenwood’s bust-out was the stuff of nightmares for him and his rail…but he looked good taking it.
At least the most watched moment of my poker career will showcase the style icon's duo of an 888Poker Squad hoodie and noise cancelling headphones on top of a snapback

HIS WATCH IS OVER
Zackary Koerper hit the showers in the Main Event, walked outside for some fresh air and that feel of the Vegas sun on his … oh. More showers.

FRENCH BLUFF AT LUNCH IS TRES BON
Ever wondered if that waiter is really from the country of the restaurant’s cuisine? Go all-in with a friend who speaks the language.
Had lunch at Mon Ami Gabi. We’re unsure if waiter puts on a French accent. So @JoelleParenteau responds to him in French and he looks dumbfounded. Called the bluff 😂

…who hinted at his near-impossible nature that makes him such a winner earlier in the summer.
I've honestly never understood the point of a slowroll I feel exactly the same whether you show me I'm an idiot immediately or a minute later am I just dead inside
