WSOP 2010 The Final Countdown -- Party Central Continues Its Countdown Of The Best Moments Of The 2010 World Series


Maria HoAs the November Nine prepare to take to the felt, bringing to an end the WSOP 2010, Rebecca McAdam relives her favourite memories from this year’s Series.

In anyone’s memories of Las Vegas and the World Series, parties and celebrations are always going to come to the fore. So, I decided to pile all my favourite nights into one ultimate party memory.

During the Series, there is very little time for tomfoolery when you have to work or play every day. However, throughout seven weeks, you would go truly nuts if you didn’t let your hair down, and in Vegas, you can let your hair down to the extreme.

You can dance on see-through rooftops, you can sit back and let servers pour you drinks from magnums, you can swim instead of hitting the dance floor, and watch your barmaid dance a jig on the bar she just served you on. You just might happen to find yourself at an Irish party in a luxurious villa, or at exclusive shows like Run DMC, not to forget Snoop Dogg at the PokerStars WSOP party ⎯ he was amazing!

I managed to take part in and witness two dance offs during my time in Vegas; one featuring Paul Marrow, and the other Randal “RandALLin” Flowers and Andrew “luckychewy” Lichtenberger.

Paul and I managed to stir up a major dance off in one of the clubs. We had everyone up in the centre of the floor break-dancing and competing. I stood back and watched as popstar wannabes attempted to out-style Mr. Marrow. Now, anyone who knows Paul, will know that this simply is not possible. The man wears two different coloured shoes for God’s sake.

Online whizz kids Luckychewy and Tony Dunst decided to throw a house party during the Series. Luckychewy, Ryan “Golfa” D’Angelo, and Maria Ho took to the dance floor with fervour while Lauren Kling, Christina Lindley, and Adam Levy got out their scoreboards. It was surprise entry Randall Flowers who blew them all the way. Although I have to say, they would have had some stiff competition if Paul Marrow had been there!
