Same Old Stories With Jean-Robert Bellande and Isildur1
Is anyone else besides myself getting tired of hearing about

"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

Redhead of the Month - August - The Russian Spy
After a brief absence due to the WSOP, my Redhead of the

A couple of days ago, I wrote a blog about the Portuguese
Scamming Prodigy, aka Jose "Girah" Macedo. In that blog, I talked about Girah's admissions of guilt in
his blog, etc. Now, even more evidence has come out
regarding the case, including an admission by Haseeb Qureshi
that makes things look even worse. On Wednesday, Bluff Magazine posted a interview with Qureshi
where he admitted to chip dumping to Macedo,

We are officially in the post-WSOP doldrums. I've been
perusing the various sites for news and, as expected, there
is your typical mix of relevant poker news and filler. The problem is that there seems to be a lot of filler. The
