WSOP 3-Bet: It’s Heimiller Time, James Woods Scare, WSOP Bingo
The PokerListings Daily 3-Bet is a lightning-fast dauber in the otherwise sleepy afternoon poker news bingo game.
You can always make suggestions for 3-Bet selections in the comments section below.
In today’s WSOP 3-Bet we’ll take a look at Dan Heimiller getting his due, James Woods scaring us all and WSOP Bingo!
1) Heimiller Wins Second Bracelet, Website Remains Unchanged
The one and only Dan Heimiller took down his second WSOP bracelet in the Seniors event this weekend.
We couldn’t think of a better player to win the event as Heimiller was playing poker long before the boom of the mid-2000s.
Somehow Heimiller has kept pace with the young guns in the game, however, and has final table appearances on the WPT and EPT.
He also has one of the greatest personal websites in existence.
Heimiller beat Donald Maas heads-up to take down a staggering $627k in the Seniors event. Dennis Phillips (who finished second in two years ago) finished fifth for $153k.
As an interesting aside Heimiller was announced as one of the nominees for the PokerListings Spirit of Poker awards last week.
German George Danzer (who was nominated for an award last year) also won a bracelet this weekend.
That’s some run-good right there.
2) James Woods Has Health Scare at the Rio
This was troubling.
Actor James Woods, who we interviewed just last week at the Rio, had some health problems in Vegas this weekend.
Fortunately it wasn’t a heart attack and Woods appears to be fine now.
It's particularly scary for Woods as his brother Michael passed away from a heart-attack in 2006 just days after a WSOP trip.
Thankfully the situation appears to be over and one of poker's biggest celebrity proponents appears to be just fine and might even play a few more tournaments this summer.
Check out Woods’ Twitter feed from this weekend.
Thanks to the great Rio Hotel staff and superb Las Vegas paramedics, I am resting comfortably with good news so far at the ER.— James Woods (@RealJamesWoods) June 9, 2014
I did what every person my age should do with any sign of sudden symptoms that could be cardiac related. I'm sharing hoping others take care— James Woods (@RealJamesWoods) June 9, 2014
Update: seems the incident was not heart related. Possibly food poisoning with sudden onset of virulent symptoms. Great care here in LV.— James Woods (@RealJamesWoods) June 9, 2014
I've had such a nice response from so many kind friends and Twitter followers. It is so comforting and I'm deeply appreciative.— James Woods (@RealJamesWoods) June 9, 2014
I heartily recommend brushing up on cardiac knowledge at the American Heart Association website. NEVER try to "outguess" chest pains.— James Woods (@RealJamesWoods) June 9, 2014
Finally people should be aware that heart attacks may present different symptoms than the classic ones. My dear Brother had NO chest pains.— James Woods (@RealJamesWoods) June 9, 2014
3) Spot Doyle on his Scooter? BINGO!
This is great.
Blogger/poker player Addy Litfin created a WSOP Bingo sheet that is a shockingly-good representation of what actually goes on at the WSOP.
In case you’re wondering the PokerListings crew has witnessed every single one of these items first hand (just click the image below to see the whole thing).
