Rush Poker Not Patentable - Everyone Pile On

Rush Poker 430x215
Whether you loved or hated Rush Poker, you will probably not get it rammed down your throats. The InstaDeal Poker Network is about to release its own version of the game and have revealed that Full Tilt was never able to patent the concept. What this means is that within the next year or so, expect to see many more sites jump on the "Rush Poker" bandwagon. But of course it won't be called that.

Cue Phil Ivey's new theme: [youtube]http://www. youtube. com/watch?v=wdCUj0yAN60[/youtube] Ok, so that was actually former WCW Main Producer and WWE performer Eric Bischoff's entrance theme, but it applies. Phil Ivey has finally resurfaced after several months of self imposed hiding / exile when he entered the APPT Macau Main Event.

Occupy Doyle Brunson 430x240
For decades, the elite of the poker world have taken advantage of those poker players who were lesser skilled. It's sad that players like Erik Seidel and Daniel Negreanu make millions at the game when the average grinder has barely enough to scrounge up a stake for a $1-$2 game. It's time that poker players unite and show that they will not take it anymore. It is time for Occupy Doyle Brunson.

Ben Lamb Customized Plate Ideas and UFC on Fox

14 November 2011 , By: compncards
Ben Lamb recently purchased a BMW and got some vanity plates that read "BENBA 1. " While that's cute and all, maybe he should have gone with something a little more appropriate for his recent WSOP November Nine finish: 4ANDOUT KJIZWAK LMBCHOP ALLINBAD HNZMYDDY  (Heinz My Daddy) KJORBUST As much grief as I give Lamb, at least he lasted longer than Cain Velasquez did on Saturday. Can you imagine being the UFC heavyweight champ and headlining on Fox for the first-ever national broadcast of the UFC, just to get knocked out in 64 seconds? Watch the video below:.

2011 WSOP November Nine Day 1 Final - Ben Lamb Luckboxes His Way to Final Three

Luckboxen 2 430x286
The final three of the 2011 WSOP November Nine has been reached. Unfortunately, Ben Lamb luckboxed his way there. I say luckboxed because he was all-in and behind yet again four-handed and sucked out yet again. If you missed it, it was Lamb shoving with A-7 of diamonds and running into pocket jacks from Matt Giannetti.

2011 WSOP November Nine Dinner Break - Collins Out, Bari Booted and Puppies Saved

Collins 430x286
The November Nine are in the second half of their dinner break and we are down to just four players left. The other half of my heads-up match is out of it, leaving me with just Matt Giannetti left to make it to the final three. Phil Collins got his last 19 million into the middle after three bet shoving with Ad-7d. Pius Heinz woke up with nines and made the call.

2011 WSOP November Nine - Ben Lamb Luckboxes His Way to Cripple O'Dea

7 November 2011 , By: compncards
Lovely 430x281
I told you we were going to lose some folks this last level. We are down to just 6 players. Sam Holden was the first out when he ran As-Js into the Ah-Kc of Ben Lamb. Lamb caught clubs on the flop and turn to flush Holden out of the event.
