The big arrival

Phil's Military arrival!!!

At 2:00 pm Sunday I will roll up to the back of the Rio in Military vehicles dressed as General Patton, with 11 models (one for each bracelet) in tow. In 2008 I will be leading the UB army! This may the most over-the-top entrance to the WSOP that I've ever made!! There will be thousands of people there watching this spectacle while ESPN and the poker press record every second of it. I LOVE it!!! Meanwhile I am hoping one thing: that I make it to the end of day one.

Kind of surprising they didn't make it a $10m first place prize, just for publicity.

They'd have to move almost $900,000 from the other places, or from their fees, to do that.
