Maria Ho 225x300
A couple of weeks ago, three pros left the UB roster. Having some space to fill they decided to fill that space by signing female pro Maria Ho to a sponsorship deal. Many people outside of poker will remember Ho for her stint on the Amazing Race with Tiffany Michelle. In poker circles, she is known for her great play and many think that she is one of the hotter female pros.

My November Nine Predictions Revisited

Jonathan Duhamel Main Event Champion 430x296
A couple of days prior to the Main Event, I made four predictions regarding the November Nine final table. I watched the event Saturday and Monday and even last night on ESPN. It was a very entertaining final table leading up to heads-up play. Heads-up, not so much.

2010 WSOP November Nine Heads-Up Update - Jonathan Duhamel Wins 2010 WSOP Main Event

Duhamel Bracelet 259x300
It all came down to this night. Jonathan Duhamel with a nearly 6 to 1 chip lead over John Racener. Personally, I predicted this heads-up battle before the November Nine and was looking forward to the event. Unfortunately, what we got was pretty much a one sided affair with Duhamel pretty much picking up pots at will.

November Nine Final 3 430x271
Before I head into today's final recap, let me suggest that whatever you do, watch the broadcast of this on Tuesday.   This should be one of the best episodes of the WSOP on ESPN in poker history. *Senti Comes Up Short - Dolan Flames Out* Jason Senti made a helluva run to come back from being in last place, but his run finished in 7th place.   As was customary early on in this event, this was another sick beat.

Soi Nguyen 430x237
The 2010 World Series of Poker Main Event final table, aka the November Nine, is under way and the action has been absolutely insane thus far.   Bruce Buffer kicked off action with his typical "Its Time!" introduction for "shuffle up and deal. "  Action was then soon underway. It did not take a long time for a monster pot to develop.

Voted 300x300
Tuesday was election day in the United States. If you were following twitter or listening to different poker personalities, they would have told you to vote for candidates that support poker. I am one of the few players that did not got with that form of thinking and actually voted for the Republican candidate in my district. The Poker Players Alliance actually supported the incumbent, but this is one time I could not vote for poker.
