We Took A Break From Poker While Michael Phelps Broke The Olympic Record For Most Medals

Oh well, guess we probably won’t be seeing Michael Phelps anytime soon at the poker tables. The all time Olympic champion has done it again; he has now broken the Olympic record for most medals, set by former Russian gymnast Larisa Latynina, when he and his three teammates received Gold in the men’s 4×200 relay; he now has 19 Olympic medals, with a couple of events still to come.  By the way, the U.S. now has a total of 25 medals, 10 gold, 8 silver and 7 bronze and it’s just day five…Go Team USA, Go Team USA, Go Team USA!

Nevertheless, I would still love to see Phelps playing at some of the  Celebrity Poker events. The only problem is that his face always displays his emotions, from excitement to disappointment. He would probably give off so many tells that he’d be an easy mark. That is, unless he stopped by the Texas Poker Store, bought a bunch of poker books and read up on how to control his poker face.
