Do you consider yourself being the world's unluckiest poker player? Well, there's a difference between bad beats and bad beats in poker. Check out the video below from the 2008 WSOP Main Event ($10,000 buy-in) in which the hobby player Mabuchi flops trips aces against the pro Justin Phillips.

Day 5 of the 2010 WSOP Main Event finished about an hour ago. It was a super thrilling day with huge swings, at least for some of the players. Chip leader of the tournament is the PokerStars sponsored player Evan Lamprea, 21, with about 3,5 million in chips. Not far behind him are notables such as the danish poker pro Theo Jorgensen and also the poker legend Johnny Chan. Unfortunately only 1 woman made it through Day 5. Her name is Breeze Zuckerman (picture) and she will bring about an average stack to Day 6 of the tournament. Best of luck to her!

We don't have any big chip leader(s) yet and most of the remaining players have decent stacks to work with.
