Fine -- so that's overselling it by just a bit. Nonetheless, great filmmakers zoom in on the little details -- beads of sweat, shifty eyes, restless hands and, now, bouncing feet. Over the weekend, whilst waiting for Plano boy Josh Evans to bust out of the 2007 World Series of Poker, which has nearly wrapped in Vegas, our pal Dan Michalski posted to his Pokerati site the following video, which might be better than a peek at the hole cards. OK -- not quite, but awfully close.
From what we can tell, those are Evans' feet at the right -- oh, and the Plano poker player finished in 76th place on Saturday, for which he earned $106,382. Notes Dan of Evans' haul: "Not bad for a guy who was playing $60 tourneys every Tuesday not that long ago. (By the way, Josh is running pretty dern good. He won $49,505 less than a month ago by finishing 2nd in a Venetian Deep Stacks tourney.)" --Robert Wilonsky
