Since we are entering the final week of 2010, it is time for me to be a lemming and do my year in review posts like every other poker blogger and writer in the poker media.  However, you all know I love to put my own opinion on this, so over the next couple of days, I will give you MY Top 10 Poker Moments of 2010. *#10 - Annie Duke Wins NBC National Heads-Up Championship* * * **** * * Annie Duke does not play the same schedule as many other pros due to her family.   As such, she really has to try and take advantage of the live events she plays in.

John Racener's Drunk Driving is NOT Good for Poker

Wreck 430x296
Early Saturday evening, I saw a news blurb on Wicked Chops Poker[http://wickedchopspoker. com/john-racener-arrested-for-third-dui-mugshot/] regarding John Racener being arrested for his THIRD DUI charge.   After doing a little digging, I discovered that this is his third DUI charge in the last five years.   Anyone that knows me well knows my views about alcohol, but this is a case where anyone with any sense at all has to agree that John Racener needs some serious help.

eBay Removes Eskimo Clark's 1999 WSOP Bracelet After Auction Closes

Eskimo Clark
As most of you know, Eskimo Clark's 1999 WSOP bracelet recently sold for $4,050 on eBay. Those that follow my blog and Twitter also know that I was one of the bidders on the bracelet and stopped pursuing it after the bidding exceeded $4,000. Granted, had I known that $4,100 would have won the item, I may have bid again. In the end, it looks like it may have been a good thing I didn't win it as eBay sent me a notice today stating that the item was REMOVED from eBay.
