Show me the Monkey!

Show me the Monkey!

This year, PokerShare is going to stake a Chimp, Mikey, in the 2006 WSOP Main Event which is 10K. Mikey has been in training for the past 4 months for the event.

There is going to be a press conference at 2:00pm on Thursday, July 27, 2006 at the Palms Hotel in Vegas. The trainers and Mikey will be avaialbe for comments and questions regarding Mikey's poker training for the main event and chimpanzees cognitive abilities.
I am hoping he'll be at the same table as Mike (the mouth) Mattusow and Mikey will knock him out of the tourney. O to see that.

If he places in the money, that's definitely not peanuts!

Some questions you may have:


There are very few primates that have the cognitive ability of Mikey. “After a gruelling search across North America,” says Lucan Toh, CEO of, “we have spent our efforts on one lucky chimp.” Mikey has been professionally trained to recognize the colors and shapes of suits and numbers. His favorite move is going “all in” but don’t tell his competition. His website, will show video footage of this chimp practicing his “all in” moves with his trainers.


With spectators going bananas for this animated chimp, Mikey will be playing for chips! He wants cold hard cash for his retirement, which has become a more serious problem for show business animals. After chimps perform for several years, they must retire, and like humans, live off of their earnings for the rest of their lives. Mikey’s trainers are available to comment on Mikey’s retirement plan and where he hopes to retire, should he win the 2006 WSOP.


After his press conference at the Palms, Mikey will also challenge a journalist to a live poker match. Journalists and producers will receive a banana split and share in cold Bannarama Vodka Blended’s at the press conference.


Mikey the chimp will be sending all of his losing opponents BACK to next year’s World Series of Poker (WSOP), compliments of That’s right, will sponsor his losing victims to get right back up after defeat, and play again for free in the 2007 World Series of Poker!

I wanna be that chump to get knocked out by that chimp! *Smiles*
