WSOP Final Table begins today

If you’ve been living under a rock, you might not know that the WSOP final table kicks off today. If you’re an idiot living under a rock, you might not know that the best coverage of the WSOP hasn’t been by ESPN, Cardplayer or any other fucktard that has kicked a pile of money into Harrah’s corporate coffers, it’s been by the poker bloggers. If you want to know what’s going on, check out some of these fine folks.

Pauly revolutionized poker tournament reporting with his coverage last year. This year, he’s put his media badge on the line nearly every day to bring us the finest gonzo coverage of the WSOP. He’s also sporting fanstastic WSOP photos from FlipChip, who’s as good as it gets. He’s been out there for two months now writing his balls off and inspiring ridiculous behavior in certain other poker writers (yes, you, Otis!). Today marks the last poker tourney Pauly will cover this year, as he takes the rest of 2006 off from tournament coverage. So get your ass over to Tao of Poker and see how the best in the biz does it.

Craig (Cunningham) and (Michael) Craig over at Pokerworks are turning out some great stuff, too. Don’t ever discount CC for heartwarming profiles of players, and that other Craig guy wrote a badass book and spins an entertaining yarn every day.

Otis, Wil, Luckbox and a metric fuckton of other folks are working their balls off over at the Pokerstars blog. Wil is turning out some of the best writing of his career over there, so check that out.

The army includes Change’s fashion dos and don’ts, Dan’s Texas-centric reporting, and a host of other fine folks including WSOP ME money-winner Tuscaloosa Johnny and the loverly April.

I've always wanted to be a part of the WSOP. Guess I should schedule my next gambling trip to Vegas before the event.
