I haven't seen anyone yet mention Amarillo Slim. If I remember correctly, he won the FIRST WSOP. Very colorful, a spokesman. Does that count for anything?

How soon we forget.

Jennifer Tilly probably influences people in a way that can not be described on a PG forum.

You are confusing Slim and Moss.

If a woman ever wins it (lol), she'll immediately become number 2 behind Moneymaker.

I'm not confusing them, I was just wrong. First time for everything.

Thanks for catching that, Unjon. :-)

Yes, but as for promoting the game of poker, at the time, I don't think anyone can beat Slim. He was huge, back in the day. (1972)

And I never wanted to believe the charges, there had to be some explanation. Maybe, maybe not. It destroyed him, though. Of course, I don't know what it did to the little girl. Bad all the way around. What a shame.

They missed Biggest D@#k category, and I donít mean literally.

I nominate Jaime Gold.




Is that redacted for "donk"?

Speaking of Moss, when I was in my young 20s, long time ago, I think I saw Moss at the Riviera (?), and sheepishly walked up to him to ask him for an autograph. He told me, go away, don't bother me. Kinda crushed me, for all of maybe 15 minutes. I composed myself, and thought "fk that old mthrfkr, I don't want his autograph".

I don't think you want him mentioned if you are the WSOP. Wasn't he accused of pedophilia or something?
