Speaking of four-letter events that begin with W, reader BJ Nemeth sent a heads-up about this great picture of competitor Andy Bloch at the World Series of Poker Player's Championship, published on the Wicked Chops Poker site.
Andy (who gained fame as a member of the legendary MIT blackjack team profiled in the book Bringing Down The House) is apparently using his iPad to play Scrabble and indulge in other pastimes during the lag between hands.
