Ship It!

Jonathan Little ended the first day of the World Poker Tour's Season 6 Mirage Poker Showdown with $4,800 in chips, peanuts compared to chipleader David Matthew's rollicking $156,625.

Little wrote in his blog that night that he was considering writing off the tournament and not showing up for Day 2, but it's a good thing he changed his mind - the young pro managed to navigate a field of poker's very best to final table the event, and then personally put Jonathan Little is a quiet-spoken and relatively unknown regular on the tournament circuit who happens to make a habit of cashing in just about every major event he plays. With this performance, Little has put an exclamation point on his abilities and should garner a little more recognition both at the table and from the public after this event - if not because of his demeanor, then at least because of his new diamond-studded watch.
