The World Poker Tour
 
In just under three years, the World Poker Tour has become one of the most lucrative ventures in sports for its players. Over the weekend, the WPT crossed the $100 million mark in prize money with the awarding of the $7 million plus prize pool on the latest tournament stop of the WPT. Michael Gracz captured first prize, earning $1.5 million, and entered the record books as the WPT's "$100 Million Man."
WPT
"What the WPT has accomplished in such a short period of time is truly astonishing," said Steve Lipscomb, President and founder of WPT Enterprises, Inc. (NASDAQ:WPTE). "We have lifted poker from a backroom game to a sport that is churning out a whole new generation of respected professional players making their living by competing in our tournaments around the world. $100 million is just a mind-boggling number and it sends a message that the WPT and poker are here to stay. If you look back at the PGA, it took more than 30 years to reach $100 million in prize money."

When considering that many World Poker Tour events pay as deep as 40th or 50th place means that for the first time many professional poker players are earning their mortgage money on the tour and successful amateurs are enjoying nice bonuses for their bank accounts.

Airing every Wednesday night at 9 p.m. ET/PT on the Travel Channel, the World Poker Tour is responsible for launching the worldwide poker boom. By turning poker into a televised sports sensation, the WPT has made stars of the poker players who have captured million-dollar purses on the Tour. Since their WPT Final Table appearances, they are frequently spotted in airports and restaurants, and pressed for autographs by fans.

Our Masters Darkhorse Pick - Mike Weir
 

The Masters Bet On The Masters With BoDog.com

Mike Weir is excited about his Masters chances. Sure the buzz at the Masters is all about the Big Four: defending champion Phil Mickelson, Tiger Woods, Ernie Els and Vijay Singh. But don't forget about the Canadian Left hander. By hearing him speak you'd think he sounds like a man on a mission. "This is my fifth year being here and I'm as excited as ever, probably more so than any other year," Weir said Tuesday. "I feel like my game is coming around." Perhaps the fire in his eyes is because the seven-time PGA Tour winner wants to make amends for missing the cut as defending champion last year. Or perhaps he's a little ticked that no one south of the border seems to be talking about him any more since dropping out of the world top 10.

Tiger and Weir

"I still am," he quickly responded when asked if he thought he belonged with the elite. "In my own mind, I feel I'm as good as anybody. A lot of players feel that way." He'll find out Thursday at 10 a.m. EDT when he tees off alongside Rich Beem and Fredrik Jacobson on the pristine layout at Augusta National Golf Club. Follow the coverage at Masters.org

Lines are up for the Masters. Get them here.

This Week's Nascar Stop
 
NASCAR -- Nextel Cup Advance Auto Parts 500 - Martinsville Speedway - Martinsville, VA

After the tough high-banked half-mile oval of the Bristol Motor Speedway, the drivers and teams could use a week at a nice and "relaxed" mile and-a-half speedway. Too bad that's not going to happen this week. The teams travel from Bristol to Martinsville for a second straight week on a short track and tempers are sure to be short. The Martinsville track is very much different from Bristol however, in that it is quite flat and the driving style needed to win is completely different. One thing that is the same at Bristol and Martinsville is the success of both Rusty Wallace and Jeff Gordon.

Wallace has scored seven wins at Martinsville (nine at BMS) and was one of the fastest cars on the track last week before a flat tire shortcircuited another trip to Victory Lane. Gordon has posted five poles and eight top-five results in the last nine races at Martinsville. He has won the spring pole in each of the last four years and has a total of five wins. Gordon has been running at the finish in all 24 of his Martinsville starts, the longest streak without a DNF among the 599 drivers who have competed at Martinsville since 1949. Bet on the Advance Auto Parts 500 here. Or you could check all the latest nascar lines that are up now.

BK Kim
 
Tuesday's Rant courtesy of Jim Rome - BK Kim got rocked in Colorado and you didn’t exactly have to be Abner Doubleday to see this one coming, but I told you. BK Kim, fresh off of coming over from the Red Sox, was a total circus in his debut for the Rockies last Friday night. The bad news is that Kim gave up 5 extra base hits and got just one out before getting the hook. He gave up 8 runs, 6 hits, (2 of those were bombs) and got just the single out and oh yeah, he made an error. The bad news is, it wasn’t in Colorado.

What the hell happens when they take him to Coors Field? Not the best way to break in with the new club. Not the best way to instill confidence in your new manager and your new teammates. The good news is, and I am always looking for the bright side, he did manage to get off the mound without flipping anyone the bird. That’s got to count for something. He couldn’t get anyone out, ok fine, he got one guy out, but he didn’t tell the crowd to f-off. Baby steps BK, baby steps. After the game BK said, “It’s definitely not the way I wanted to make my first impression, but at the same time, it’s good to be part of this team.” Oh really, not a good impression? Yah think? And of course it's good to be a part of that team. That’s the only team in MLB that would take you. BK also said, “If it doesn’t get any better than tonight, I should just retire.”

I think this is the first thing I've ever heard this guy say that I agree with. Not a bad plan.

Mickelson Wins The Bell South
 
Mickelson made a birdie putt from 13 feet on the fourth playoff hole Monday to win the BellSouth Classic over Rich Beem and give the defending Masters champion even more confidence heading into the opening round of the season's first major. "It gives me some momentum to take to Augusta," he said. After a rocky front nine, shooting a 1-over 37, Mickelson had a 32 on the back with four birdies and no bogeys, including a 10-footer on No. 18 to finish at 69 and get into the playoff. "On the front I hit it horrible, but putted great. The back nine I hit it terrific," said Mickelson, who needed only one putt on six of his first nine holes.

"I don't plan on hitting into trouble next week, but it's nice to know I can recover," he said. Golfweb.com. Check back tomorrow as we preview the opening round at Augusta.
