Congrats to Tony McGlone WSOP Main Event Cash!

Congrats to Tony McGlone on his World Series of Poker Main Event Cash!!!!! He finished 174 out of 6,494 players in this year's Main Event, busting out yesterday, but winning $36,626. He rivered a flush, but his opponent rivered a full house to knock him out. Tony now has his own profile page!

"It was certainly disappointing when I got knocked out, but after an hour or so to process it and take a few looks at the check - I was OK.

I would expect that you will see me on TV a few times starting with Day 3 coverage. The big Day 3 event was when I knocked LA Laker Jordan Farmar out of the tournament.

Day 5 was also big as I spent a big part of the day sitting with Dan Harrington. I was also at the secondary feature table that evening and played a couple of hands with Antonio 'The Magician' Esfandiari.

All in all it was a great ride with many great memories."

I first met Tony two years ago when we were at the same table during the St. X tourney. We both ended up making the final table. I have since played with Tony at least 4 other times, including twice at his house. Tony lives in Maineville, just a mile from where I went to elementary school K-6.

(Note: You most likely will not find Tony in this picture, but IlliniFan should recognize at least 2 people, and I''m not counting Brad Garrett's girlfriend Isabella. I like her free flowin attitude!)

Poker Updates

- IlliniFan has started posting his version of our WSOP trip last month.

- IlliniFan, Stormmrt, and I are starting a local poker league where we will send 3 players to the WSOP next year. We have 13 committed so far & are looking to get 18-20.

- I am currently @ $40.33 in the Ferguson Challenge. I cashed in the PPA Freeroll for $0.53. Woot!

- Live poker tonight in Hamilton & Friday in Goshen. I need a couple strong finishes Friday, as I'm currently 3rd in the "Player of the Year" standings heading into the final events.
