earlier in the week about the changes for upcoming season of

Daniel Negreanu Gets to Listen to Himself Talk Yet Again
Kristy Arnett recently interviewed Daniel Negreanu and, I
must admit, she picked a great person to interview since he
loves to hear himself talk so much. She asked him his opinions on several topics and I figured I
would give my opinions on his opinions since I like to hear

No Longer Enjoy Poker? Maybe It's Time to Quit.
Doyle Brunson made a comment earlier today that he was
playing with a couple of professional poker players who say
they no longer enjoy the game and that it's all about the

Same Old Stories With Jean-Robert Bellande and Isildur1
Is anyone else besides myself getting tired of hearing about
Isildur1 and Jean-Robert Bellande? Seriously. I read in my Twitter timeline today that Bellande has a

took another big loss at the tables after booking a big win
at the tables. Once and for all, here is the basic storyline for both

Trust No One - And Do Your Own Data Mining
"Trust Everyone, but always cut the cards" is a well known
saying by Benny Binion. With online poker, we should probably change that to "Trust
no one and do your own data mining. "
When the first reports came out regarding Jose Macedo, the
"Portuguese Poker Prodigy," I was among the players that
called bullshit. A lot about the story seemed fabricated and

Redhead of the Month - August - The Russian Spy
After a brief absence due to the WSOP, my Redhead of the
Month column has returned. This month, I bring you a figure that is loosely known in
poker but is much more of a celebrity worldwide - just maybe
