Surprising new allegations about Olympic great Michael Phelps from a pro poker player who says he partied with Phelps in Vegas last November.

Todd Brunson says he gambled and drank with the 14-time Gold Medal winner all night.

Brunson writes about that weekend on his website:

"Incredible! This guy was drinking some sort of mixed drink when I got here, then the tequila, then the whiskey, all in less than five minutes! If all of this wasn't enough, he then asked me why I wasn't at the pool during the day. Apparently, while I was lying in bed recuperating, he and his friends had been at the pool since 9 a.m. And they weren't out there training, either.

Ah, to be 23 again ... I'm sure that being in the shape he's in doesn't hurt, either. As much as he drank, I never heard him slur a word or seem the least bit impaired".
