‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the poker community

Not a player was raising, not even Phil Ivey;

The chips were all stacked on the table with care

In hopes that the flop would show what to bet there;

When all of the sudden arose such a clatter;

Hellmuth was yelling , whats’ the matter

he called all the players by name;

and everyone answered to get in on the game.

Now, Antonio! now, Seidel! now, Merson! now, Hachem!



Come on Negreanu! come on Trickett! Cada and Hansen!


We’re all waiting for you so the game can begin;

So grab your seats and splash your poker chips in.

With a wink of his eye and a nod of his head;

I knew at that moment I had nothing to dread;

So I splashed  my poker chips and declared all in,

and watched the Brat stare me down with a grin!

But I raked the pot in as I smiled at the sight

and said; “Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!”

There were quite a few notable players who survived Day 1c, including Doyle “Dolly” Brunson, “Big One for One Drop” winner Antonio Esfandiari, Joe Cada, Johnny Chan, Tom McEvoy, Jaimie Gold, and we were glad to see, arguably the greatest poker player in the world and the current runner up for the 2012 WSOP Player of The Year, Phil Ivey.
