Noteworthy casualties of the last two days include former WSOP main event champions Doyle Brunson, Phil Hellmuth, Jr. and Daniel Negreanu. Actor James Woods fell out Saturday as did former NFL Pro Bowl tight end Shannon Sharpe. The former Super Bowl champ with the Denver Broncos and Baltimore Ravens, who has only been playing for five months, lasted until 11:15 p.m. That is longer than Brunson, at 72 years old the game's most legendary figure, lasted today.
"I went all in," said Sharpe of his final hand. "I had ace-queen, and the other guy had bullets."
Sharpe added that Brunson's seminal How-To tome, Super/System, was his bible in preparing for this event. "Oh yeah, I studied that book," he said. "And then I met Doyle in the bathroom on a break. I wished I'd had the book with me so he could have autographed it."

Sounds like he wasn't able to bluff his way out of this one. All in with an Ace/Queen? In all fairness to Sharpe, he backed up his bravado between the lines on game day. Expect him to say some outrageous things in the future. He made some very foolish comments last year, (who am I to talk), but he will improve, just like Tom Jackson did. He was AWFUL at first. Luckily Berman really liked him and took him under his wing (T.J.).

Wouldn't it be nice to spend your spare "TIME" figuring out ways to spend your money...
...or is it spending your spare money finding ways to spend your time?!?
