Miami John Cernuto This Year’s WSOP Inspiration Story

John Cernuto was playing in one of the events leading up to the 2009 World Series Main Event when he literally went unconscious. 

He collapsed during Event #44 ($2,500 Razz) of an apparent heart attack, initial reports suggested, and was taken out by medics on a stretcher.  He awoke on the way out and even found enough strength to use his cell phone.

A few days later, he was released from the hospital and appeared back at the WSOP where he managed to win a cool $23,000 plus.

Daniel Negreanu Catches Nasty Virus at WSOP

Now that Daniel Negreanu has bowed out of the 2009 World Series of Poker early, he can go back to blogging....assuming he can muster up enough strength to do so.

Don't cry any tears for Negreanu.  Not only did he cash out at eight events of the 2009 World Series of Poker, he's also putting more than $300,000 in the bank.  That's more than US President Barack Obama's yearly salary.  Way to go Daniel. 

Unfortunately he's suffering from flu-like symptoms that may have played a part in his horrid performance.  Hopefully it's not the Swine Flu.
