    Rapture on Hold - Poker Won't Wait
    21 May 2011

    The signs of Rapture are all around us. No, I’m not talking about the idiot who spent his life savings putting up billboards around the country to tell everyone the world was going to end on May 21st. I’m talking about the world in which I exist, the poker world, where we’re clearly in a […]

  • These Weeks’ Big Winners – May 12th

    12 May 2011

    As you’ll see somewhere further down the page, I was a bit busy on the other side of the poker industry last week, thus delaying this column. Other things delaying this column include the NBA Playoffs, a little league baseball game, and finally a wasp sting on my left pointer finger. But I digress. Unfortunately […]

    The Show Must Go On
    26 Apr 2011

    The United States Government. Check back next week to see if anything changes. In all seriousness, the last week and a half has been a dark one for the industry, and last week didn’t necessarily feel like the appropriate time to recognize the few people who were fortunate enough to make a few dollars in […]

  • First Test in the Post-FTP/Stars Era: NHUPC

    17 Apr 2011

    The first visible indicator that we will be able to see after Friday’s indictments might be coming up in just a few hours. The National Heads-Up Poker Championship is the first new show to air in this new online-pokerless environment in the United States, with its debut episode set to air at 12p ET on […]

  • This Week’s Big Winners – April 12th

    12 Apr 2011

    With so many high profile events on the verge of wrapping up (see WPT Hollywood, NAPT Mohegan Sun ME & Bounty Shootout, WSPOC St. Louis), you might think there isn’t much action to recap for this week. Nonsense! A major stop on the EPT, one of the biggest prizes in HPT history, and a lot […]

    Eslami Proves ‘If You Can Beat a Robot, You Can Beat a Man’ at Rincon WSOPC Western Regional Championship, Rincon, California Before this week, Ali Eslami’s most notable accomplishment was defeating Polaris, the poker playing computer, in tandem with Phil Laak. The LA-based cash game player proved his versatility this week by beating 8 real […]

    29 Mar 2011

    There was a Russian invasion on Austria this week, as a pair of high-profile tournament stops in the land of Schwarzenneger were each taken by Russian players. On US soil we saw the end of the Wynn Poker Classic, as well as am interesting event in Tulalip, Washington. And don’t forget about the ANZPT. Pesky […]

    Mike Sexton Gives Up Announcing Career in Pursuit of Long-shot Poker Dream WPT Bay 101 Shooting Star, San Jose, California There were a ton of storylines on display at the final table of the WPT’s Bay 101 Shooting Star event this week. It was the second consecutive final table for Vivek Rajkumar, who finished second […]

    14 Mar 2011

    First off, I would like to take the time to thank those who commented on last week’s post. It was no surprise to me that I got a couple of details wrong, as that’s something that happens more often than not, but it was good to find out that there are actually people taking time […]

  • This Week’s Big Winners – March 8th

    08 Mar 2011

    Due to your heroic author’s insistence that he can actually play poker as well as write about it, he decided to take a quick trip to Atlantic City to play a couple of Circuit events. That failed miserably, and also delayed the publishing of this article by more than a day. But here it is, […]
