Wonder Woman, the WSOP and JJ Liu

I'm still on vacation at the Outer Banks. A lot of the rain has missed me here. Maybe it's the powerful force associated with the house I'm staying at; it apparently belongs to Lynda Carter aka Wonder Woman. I looked through all the closets, but there are no spare costumes lying around. Too bad, because I'm pretty sure we share the same cleavage.

I booked vacation during the start of the WSOP on purpose. I didn't want to be tempted to stay in Vegas for the whole thing again. I was totally wasted last year. But of course now I'm completely Jonesing about not being there. I have at least three people calling me every day to give me the skinny - and of course I'm pouring over Pauly's blog for updates. And I'm so totally jealous every time I hear how Pauly and Otis are pourin' 'em back at the Hooker Bar. Save a few for me boyz.

I heard it from a reliable source that JJ Liu, 4th place finisher at the Bellagio 5 Diamond WPT Event has not been contacted for the WPT's Ladies Night IV. I truly don't understand this invitational. JJ has a great track record, credibility, is totally cool, and always wears a great hat. They couldn't buy what she could give 'em. I took this picture of JJ at the Venetian poker room opening. I have never had a chance to talk with her, so I'm hoping the WSOP gives me that opportunity. Damn...I'm not there yet.

I don't know what you know, but my Hollywood-educated guess would be that JJ was passed over in favor of slotting another one of the younger, more photogenic up and comers a la Liz Lieu, Vanessa Rousso, and Erica Schoenberg. That's such a disappointing choice, especially given her excellent finishes this year.

Gotta love WPT...

Remember that television shows are more interested in pretty people than they are with skill.

WPT Player Relations Director Katherine Kowal officially invited J.J. Liu to WPT Ladies Night IV on Friday June 30.

The other 3 invitations were as expected:

Stacy Matuson (5th place at Aruba)

Vanessa Rousso (7th place at WPT Championship)

Erica Schoenberg (16th place at WPT Championship)

All 4 at-large invitees cashed at least $100,000 during WPT Season 4.

That means the 2006 WSOP Ladies bracelet winner will NOT be invited to WPT Ladies Night IV.

Mission accomplished.

We basically forced Steve Lipscomb's hand by telling him that we have "lit the match" and we give Lipscomb the chance to "douse the flame with water" before we let the wild fire burn out of control.

Wonder Woman was all about the bondage imagery and dirty old men anyways ;)
