Who Got Naked and More from The Aussie Millions Million Dollar Cash Game
The Aussie Millions Million Dollar Cash Game took over the TV studio upstairs at Crown for the second day in in row Tuesday, only this time it did so without the Malaysian businessmen poker's biggest sharks came to feed on 24-hours earlier. But while the action on the felt appeared tame compared to Monday, there was still tons of it off the table. The first group to buy in for the minimum $100k included Patrik Antonius, Tom Dwan, Mike Matusow, David Benyamine, David Oppenheim, Andrew Feldman, Justin Smith and Erik Cajelais. And while the pots stayed relatively small in the $400/$800/$100 game, this group proved they would talk about just about anything and bet on even more. Antonius spent the early part of the session attempting to convince Dwan to play props for some pretty lofty stakes. Although Dwan made it pretty clear that he felt Antonius was about the luckiest prop player on the planet and wanted no part of it, the Finn kept trying.

It's true. Mats Sundin is Isildur1 and we've got the video evidence to prove it. Another blog somehow scooped us on this completely made-up absolutely true story and in the world of internet reporting two sources reporting the same thing is about as close to corroboration as you're going to get. But the good news is we can finally put this whole Isildur1 thing to rest. It's Mats Sundin, get over it.

Cyril Mouly Wanted for International Advertising Scam?

Cyril Mouly Wanted for International Advertising Scam?
A few days ago reports arose in French publications about a vast scam involving one Cyril Mouly, one of the biggest whales to play in the big game at Bellagio. The details are hazy but it seems like this is a legitimate story. Mouly, and others, are wanted in connection to some sort of advertising telemarketing scam. In addition to lining the pockets of the players in Bobby's Room, Mouly also appeared on Full Tilt's Million Dollar Cash game filmed in London at the end of last year. First of all we have to give some pretty serious props to Cyril if all this is true. Instead of taking his millions of euros and fleeing to a non-extradition country he decided to become a high-profile, high-stakes poker players. Well played sir. It sure looked like you were playing with someone else's money. Now we know why. Cyril also gained international fame in a long series of threads on the Two Plus Two forums. Funnily enough if you google him you're going to get a lot of photoshopped stuff from the threads. We'll just have to wait and see what becomes of this whole thing, whether it's for real, whether he's innocent or what. One thing is for sure, the players in the big game can't be happy about it. For the French speakers out there here's a link to the news story. http://www.sudouest.com/accueil/actualite/economie/article/850346/mil/5651044.html *Credit for the photoshop above goes to Conz of the 2p2 forums.

Phil Ivey: The Cristal Balla

Big fans of the poker superstar, they summoned the waiter and asked him to send Ivey a bottle of Cristal champagne, compliments of their table.

But after 12 days of poker in the palace of degeneracy, plenty of salacious side stories have emerged that maybe you're not aware of…yet.
