    Default Poker Share Sends Chimp to WSOP

    Yep, Pokershare.com is sending a chimpanzee named Mikey to the WSOP Main Event...would love to see the reaction of guys like Phil Hellmuth or Mike Mattusow if Mikey the chimp knocked one of them out of the tourney

    Here's a couple of links to this story

    Recent Pokershare.com moves...

    If you followed what happened with UB - UB cut pokershare off at the knees and shut them down because UB was unable to compete with pokershare, who was using the same platform.

    So pokershare sued UB.

    I would have too, in a nanosecond.

    Giving away gas - good publicity.

    Sending a chimp - funny.

    Beats what golden palace does.

    Personally, I don't really see this as much better than those GoldenPalace stunts. I can't believe that the WSOP would allow this - it kinda devalues their tournament, don't ya think?

    I was thinking that too, about the degrading the game

    But you know the old saying, "everybody's money is good"

    Hopefully we'll get to see Mikey go on tilt

    Every player that gets knocked out by Mikey gets free entry into wsop 2007, that could be good for guys that are short stacked and on a bad run, go all in on Mikey with the 4 high, should be funny to watch
