Apparently, him and Negreanu are having a lovers quarrel.

Woods broke out of area 51:

Oh yeah, the make-believe character on Family Guy? Mhmmm, I'm sure he's there alllllll the tiiiiiime!

i know he's a real person, as the legend goes



Interesting how on twitter he said it was smooth and quiet and like no one knew what was going on. I'd have to think if I were in the staff's shoes, I'd be like, screw dis, I'll give you all the money you want, I ain't dying or getting shot over this, it ain't even my money.

I dealt to him in the 2004 WSOP. Actually I dealt him the hand he busted out on upstairs when they used to let you go upstairs. I also dealt to Raymer early in the tournament along with Bobby Baldwin and many others... no big whoop. The nice thing was they still paid you shares so I had my connections get my pal and myself out a few days early but we got paid the same as the schmucks working deeper into the tourney. A few years later Harrahs screwed that up and started paying you for downs so the dealers who are better connected get more downs. Personally when I dealt I would call in constantly to get on the EO list. Now here's something I did at the Rio for many years working graveyard. I'd come in for the dealers meeting and sign in and request satellites... I'd take a break and go to the EDR and after that I'd go to my car and go to the Stardust or some other Casino and play full pay VP on the clock... getting paid from the Rio to play VP... now that's plus EV!!

Not very often but occasionally the dealer coordinator would spot me and pull me out and put me in some live action game. You could get screwed the whole night in the line up like that. Your only chance is to pray for your table to close down to get rerouted so you could slip out.

Is James Woods in trouble financially? Why would he praise the cage staff?

I feel like they have security, everywhere... How did a masked and armed man make it IN the casino and all the way back to the poker room cage without anyone so much as taking an interest in him?

p.s. Even 'ol texas dolly is on twitter... I feel like I almost have to now.
Playing it correctly means you've already won.

Wasn't the last armed "masked" robbery a couple of years ago at the Bellagio also? Remember that guy (I believe he turned out to be an employee) who wore a motorcycle helmet in and out of the casino and robbed the main cage, IIRC?
