When it comes to the WSOP Main Event, everyone has a different strategy. For some, it’s all or nothing. For others, just the idea of a min-cash is their poker paradise.
For these stars of the felt, however, there are plenty more questions to answer.
SALE OR NO SALE
Should you play for yourself or sell pieces to the Main Attraction? Would you feel bad hand 10% of your winnings away if you took it down?
You don’t get rich by selling pieces folks

KEATING IN A SPIN
Alex Keating’s physical therapist asks all the right questions, and Keating gives them all the right answers. Well, kind of…
Physical therapist : did you stretch your arm this week?
Me : *thinking back to making change at the feature table*

HOW NOT TO GET DNEGS ON YOUR SIDE
Here’s how to avoid annoying Daniel Negreanu.
- Don’t request a handshake at break-times
- Don’t question his marriage
- Don’t bet him on said marriage
- Don’t tank with pocket aces.
I don’t know Whiteman or Myers but I was SO HAPPY to see Whiteman hit a K with KK vs Myers AA.
Whitman put in 24k and you have 34k total with AA.
Tanking there will get you on my anti-root list instantly.

YOCKEY GETS ‘THE CALL’
Bryce Yockey’s insane 99.84% bad beat may have become the talk of poker, but there was one player he wanted to hear from, and that was Connor ‘Aces under aces in the One Drop’ Drinan, as he shall forever be known. Welcome to the club, Bryce.
So @ConnorDrinan just congratulated me on join the poker bad beat hall of fame

GALFOND UNSURE WHETHER TO REG FOR THE MAIN
The Galfonds becoming parents is a heart-warming story everyone in poker can love…except perhaps a poker-guilt-ridden mom. The replies won the day.

WOOF, WOOF! (THAT’S ‘ALL-IN’ TO YOU AND ME)
We’ve all seen that painting of dogs playing poker. How does the real thing work? Well, there’s a lot more barking and patting the table.
