We know what you're thinking. Where's Teddy "The Iceman" Monroe been so far this WSOP?
Short answer: He's got his flippy-floppys, and he's on the mother****in' cash-game boat.
Monroe - self-proclaimed no. 1 live tournament player in the world, no. 1 short-stack player in the world and renowned people freezer - said he had some big plans for the WSOP coming in.
But it seems he's been too busy freezin' people at the cash-game tables to make it into many tournaments so far.
While his presence has been light on the tournament front, Monroe has been spotted regularly paying the table fees at the $100/$200 Limit cash-game tables in the Amazon room all by his lonesome, hoping to drum up some action.
Saddest consequence for the rest of us is it's been a quiet summer so far from the most quotable man in poker, as he's yet to score much face time on camera or on the podium.
We can only hope that changes soon as based on his overall body of interview work, we're due for some gems.
Anyone looking for a free-boat-ride-for-three, though, should drift by the cash tables where, if you're lucky, you'll catch a few cool breezes like these he dropped at the recent LAPC:
"Every time you think you can bust me, you gonna get froze."
"I'm on a boat, looking for sharks. And I know they gonna come."
"Every home game I played in, I froze everybody."
"You wouldn't want me at your home game. I'd take the whole suitcase."
Fingers crossed the $10k Pot-Limit Hold'em World Championship, starting at noon o'clock today, will be enough to drag the Iceman into the tourney waters again.
Either way, best get your towels ready. It's always about to go down when the Iceman's around.
