Down the left column of espn.com, Poker is now listed. You have to chose “Olympic Sports” or “More Sports > Other Sports” to find news of the small Track and Field event known as the World Championships.
I see a new business in the making. Exercise balls for poker players so they can strengthen their lower abdominals during long tournaments. Maybe there can be side bets on the athletic abilities of players. Perhaps even a “hi-lo” for Best Abs or Best Rat Gut.
