How did the biggest names in poker spend their New Year's Eve 2010?

Party boy David Williams celebrated New Year's Eve at XS in Las Vegas with his mom, David Katzenberg and Nicky Hilton.  David lost his mom in there however.

Annie Duke didn't do much partying.  Instead she rose early.

"Starting 2010 right with 9 am Bikram. Then movie with the kids."

Well, if you read regularly you have probably been following news of poker pro Phil Hellmuth falling off the wagon.  His drinking is out of control and one would expect New Year's Eve revelry to exasperate the situation.  He partied like a rock star but seems to have survived quite nicely.  Hellmuth was partying at a new night club in Las Vegas with the likes of Eva Longoria, Tony Parks, Mario Lopez and Michael Strahan. 

Daniel Negreanu spent his New Year's Even at NYE in Las Vegas and "came very close to looking like the sequel to Hangover. The most fun I've had in ages, and I remember all of it!"

Doyle Brunson was just thankful to be alive coming into 2010.

"The doctor said my heart, blood pressure, and cholestrol was that of a young man. Thank you, my ancestors for these great genes. Yes!!"

And how did those poker babes spend their New Year's Eve 2010?

Maria Ho:  Appeared to be taking it easy and no drinking?

Christina Lindley: "Wokeup and cooked turkey bacon and scrambled eggs for the household now were watching a Dexter marathon all hungover."

Lacey Jones:  Rooftop of Pure in Las Vegas

Vanessa Rousso:  Preparing for Bahamas poker tournament.

Trishelle Canatella: in Vail Colorado, presumably frolicking in the snow.

Tiffany Michelle: "Much love to the Red Bull & T.Pastrana crew for a rockin party & rad jump last night."
