Dave Tuley has covered the World Series of Poker since 1999, first for GamingToday and then Daily Racing Form and in recent years just on this ViewFromVegas.com website in the forums and on Twitter. But this year, Tuley has started doing more stories for ESPN.com. Here are the four that he's done so far this WSOP:

Monday, July 7
Feature on Jacob Zalewski, a 31-year-old with cerebral palsy who is playing in the Main Event (and made it out of Day 1 to play in Tuesday's combined Day 2) but also has used celebrity poker tournaments to raise money for others afflicted with the disease.

Wednesday, July 2
Recap of the $1 million buy-in Big One for One Drop at the World Series of Poker, which was won by 23-year-old online poker pro Daniel Colman, who ended up declining post-tournament interviews.

Friday, June 27
Recap of John Hennigan's victory in the $50,000 buy-in Pro Pokers Championship at the World Series of Poker and how his days of flying under the radar might be over.

Thursday, June 12
Feature on mixed-games specialist Max Pescatori...but his poker expertise in a variety of games is just the tip of the iceberg as Tuley remembers Pescatori running around Las Vegas playing in small horse handicapping contests and also winning 2 big tournaments as well as faring well in the Las Vegas Hilton SuperContest before making it big in the poker world (and something that no poker publications or websites have ever written about).

Entrance to the World Series of Poker in the Rio Pavillion on the northeast end of the property. This year's Main Event champion is guaranteed to be awarded $10 million. The sign is printed on the front of those steps leading up to the entrance. (Photo by Alf Musketa)
