The Knife cuts at bridge and poker

Martin de Knijff is a poker player whose nickname is "The Knife." He is playing here at the NABC. I have seen him on TV as a poker player, but I didn't know (beforehand) that he was also a bridge player. I did a short piece on him with a photo and you can see it on page 6 of the Daily Bulletin.

He has a big smile that make him more handsome in person than his Internet pictures or on TV. He has more than $3 million in tournament winnings. He doesn't have a bracelet yet, but has finished second in a WSOP event and was 13th in the Main Event one year. He was a bridge phenomenon in his native Sweden before he turned more to poker. His dad is Dutch and his mom is Swedish.

One of the bands here at the Hilton is called "Sin City Heat." They looked and sounded hot. You can click on the image to enlarge.
