I have played enough hands of triple draw that you would think I would not see anything new at this point. And then:

Also, someone anonymously posted a comment to this blog this afternoon that Matt Matros was out of the main event after flopping an underset. But apparently Matt is still in. There are two possibilities here:
1) This person who posted was mistaken/confused Matt with someone else/got bad information from a third party.
2) Someone tried to use the comments of my poker blog to spread a rumor that Matt busted out and/or trick me personally into thinking this.
What. The. Fuck. People.
As Joe Pelton said in a recent blog (I am paraphrasing): "Phil Hellmuth showed up in a tank and there are more than 100 people in line to meet Joe Hachem. This is not a world in which I belong."
That's how I feel about poker these days.
