Over the weekend I was hanging out with a few friends talking sports, Johnny Football, and just general BS after coming home from the Aggies – Rice game. Conversation eventually led to poker, as it often does around here, and someone asked about my trip to this year’s WSOP in Vegas. Since I had pretty much already told everyone everything about it through our press releases and previous blogs, it all seemed like old news to me. Until someone asked if I knew of any particularly bad beats that took place this year.

Phil Ivey and Max SteinbergOf course there were bad beats, as always, but the one that stood out most to me involved one of my favorite players, Phil Ivey. He was sent to the rails during Level 14 of the Main Event by Max Steinberg. Since it happened just before I arrived at the Rio, I can only tell you what the buzz was and what I read afterwards. Apparently there were three to the flop after Ivey opened. The flop was As-10h-3s and Ivey fired 16,000, Olaoluwa Okelola Texas Poker Store Custom Poker Chipsraised to 41,000 and Steinberg snap called, pushing Anthony Gregg out. The action went back to Ivey and he shoved all in with his 416,000 stack of poker chips. Steinberg didn’t blink or stutter and instantly called, while Okelola dropped out just as quickly. Ivey was holding a pair of threes, making bottom set, only to be utterly destroyed by Steinberg’s pair of tens for a set of tens. Ivey only had one possible out and it just wasn’t meant to be. Neither the turn nor the river showed the fourth three, shattering his main event hopes for 2013. I’m sure he wasn’t crying as he exited the Amazon Room but he was seen holding his head down.

And we have a winner, too. Francisco Navarro from College Station, Texas,  predicted the closest final score and wins a set of Copag Poker Cards from the Texas Poker Store. Congrats, Francisco!

Kyle Field is overflowing with enthusiastic energy for our Fightin’ Texas Aggies and especially for our Heisman Trophy candidate, Johnny Football Manziel. With that much positive energy being directed towards the Aggies, I can’t imagine anything that will save the Sam Houston State Bearkats from the beating they will inevitably suffer at the hands of Johnny Football and our awesome wrecking crew defense.

We’ve covered the poker tables up and put our poker chips away and are on our way to Kyle Field. See y’all there or back at the poker tables after the game.
