Poker nephew update

My nephew has survived the first "day" of the main event at the World Series of Poker in Las Vegas (which actually took four days). He came out of "Day 1" action with a little over 20,000 chips, which isn't excellent but it's pretty good. (The average stack of players remaining is around 37,000.) A lot of other players in the tournament are already what I believe they call "dead money."

He reports that he's taking a couple of days off before he goes at it again on Wednesday in the third "Day 2."

Meanwhile, though, he continues to win big dough in online poker tourneys, racking up many tens of thousands in a single day yesterday. Maybe I ought to see if he'll put me on the payroll as a publicist.

More honest than gaming credit default swaps? (Or at least less manipulatable.)
