The five best things from the 2013 WSOP

The 2013 World Series of Poker is coming to a close, so I’ve decided to take a look back at the entirety of the 2013 WSOP and offer up my choices for the five best things form the summer series.

Thomas “Srsly Sirius” Keeling Bluff Interviews

Thomas “Srsly Sirius” Keeling, better known for his satirical poker songs on YouTube, was hired as the Bluff Magazine Multimedia Director prior to the 2013 WSOP and in that role he developed one of the most interesting interview formats I’ve seen. Basically, during the editing process Keeling eliminates all questions and the interview turns into a monologue of sorts for the interviewee.

What really made these videos standout was the decision to let some of the most polarizing people in the game speak their mind; from Chino Rheem, to Dutch Boyd, to Matt Marifioti.

You can watch all of Keeling’s videos here:

Doyle Brunson cashes in the Main Event

If you’re going to announce your retirement and then come back the least you can do is perform at a high level, and that is precisely what Doyle Brunson did in the 2013 WSOP Main Event. Brunson cashed in the Main Event for the xx time in his career, and now has cashed in the tournament in each of the last five decades.’s MyStack App

The MyStack App allows players to update their chip counts to on their own. This was extremely helpful in getting correct chip-counts for the players who used it, and as more and more players start to use MyStack it should ease the burden of tournament reporters, allowing them to focus on other things instead of constantly updating chip counts.

Nolan Dalla’s blogs

Nolan Dalla has been blogging on his website for a while now, but during the WSOP his blog really came to the attention of the poker community and Dalla seemed to be a bit more prolific with his writings. There are some absolute gems on Dalla’s blog, ranging from everyday rants to backroom poker stories.

I highly recommend visiting Nolan’s blog at

Ladies prove 2012 wasn’t a fluke

After a really slow start the ladies picked-up the pace at the 2013 WSOP following the Ladies Tournament, winning two open-event bracelets for the first time since 2004, and as I write this Jackie Glazier is in 12th place with 68 players remaining in the WSOP Main Event. It was good to see women poker players build on their 2012 success at the WSOP.
