1) DW on MasterChef 7

We knew 2004 WSOP Main Event runner-up David Williams was a passionate amateur chef, but who knew he had the cooking game to impress world renowned chef Gordon Ramsey?

Williams announced this week he's made the cut for the Final 40 home cooks that will appear on Season 7 of iconic cooking show MasterChef.

He'll have to make it past the first day's heads-up challenges to get deeper into the show, but based on an early hint from Ramsey itself it seems Williams has the game to get there:

Tune in to Fox on June 1 at 8 pm to see if Williams has what it takes.

2) Like Normal Poker but a MillionX Better

The prices are exorbitant, the wifi is spotty but there's definitely one aspect the EPT Grand Final in Monaco is head-and-shoulders above the normal poker experience: 

Poker in the sun.

Poker players have played enough hands in poorly-lit basements and bell-ringing casino lobbies to last a lifetime so it's nice to see them get some fresh air.

Both the €2,200 FPS Monaco Main Event and €100k Super High Roller are playing out today in Monaco and you can catch all the updates on the PokerStars blog.

Seven days of cards-up live streaming begins tomorrow and you can watch it all right here.
