    The actor, James Woods, made the final table of an early event. That was fun:

    The video streaming is now very professional with HD quality and few glitches. The main narrator, David Tuchman, gets better every year and has interesting guests in the booth. Archives are here:

    For the live final table broadcasts ("streams") there are no set starting times, you need to check out the WSOP twitter feed.

    Last I heard, which was a couple hours before it started, was that there were more than 20,000 people signed up for the $565 Colossus event. A guy I know played, but I think he crapped out pretty early.

    I knew it still existed.

    I didn't know anyone talked about it anymore.

    I went to a WSOP almost 10 years ago. It was fine, but I couldn't handle it for more than the one day we were there. I got to meet Shannon Elizabeth, though, so there's that.

    Apparently, at one point for 10 minutes or so, I was standing in the lobby of the Rio next to one of the most famous poker players in the world. I had no idea. Couldn't tell you who he was now, either, other than he was wearing a terrible leather vest and sunglasses.
