WSOP Main Event Sees Less Entrants, But
Cheaper Events See Big Rise In Participation
COUNTING HIS CHIPS: '09 WSOP Main Event champion Joe Cada appeared on CBS' "Late Show" last night. CBS' David Letterman asked the 21-year-old Cada how long he has been playing poker and when he answered four years, Letterman exclaimed, "Four years!? Really!? I would have thought it was like 10, 20 years or something. But you're just a kid. That wouldn't work." After Cada said he lost $100,000 in one day while playing poker, Letterman said, "You should just get a job. Why don't you just get a job? Make some real money." Cada: "Sounds like my mom." Letterman: "All of a sudden poker is everywhere and in my mind, the winner of a big pot they find dead in a rental car. That doesn't happen anymore, right?" Cada: "It's not like you see in the movies or anything and it's not like those backdoor games that you play in where people have guns. It's a fun thing to do socially." Cada was not wearing any poker-sponsored apparel during his appearance ("Late Show," CBS, 11/17).
