I used to have some respect for Maxim, but after the recent article, I have to wonder.   While it is true that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, I just don't get how Maxim can claim that Tiffany Michelle is the hottest woman in poker.   Charlie River, did you get a gig moonlighting at Maxim? TwoPlusTwo forum posters are probably the harshest in the world, but they do prove a point.   She isn't all that terribly hot.

Phil Hellmuth is a cash game genius, T. J. Clouiter wins consistently at craps, and Kathy Liebert is the top pro on Full Tilt Poker.   After my last few days of playing online, I am convinced that the prior statements are indeed true as I think I have officially moved into bizarro world.

WSOP All Star 300x300
The official over at the World Series of Poker have been hinting over the last couple of days that there might be an All-Star event at this year's WSOP. Last year we had the Champions Invitational where any living WSOP Main Event winner could participate. This year, the WSOP is asking fans for a list of 20 players to round out an All-Star field. I decided that I would give my 20 picks and my criteria for selection.

So if anyone follows, or even cares, about relationships in poker, then you know that David Benyamine and Erica Schoenberg split up sometime around the end of last year. No details have been given about the breakup, but such occurrences are not uncommon in poker. It now appears that Erica has moved on to someone else, and it just so happens that this someone else is another Full Tilt pro. PokerListings first broke the news that Erica is now apparently involved with Erick Lindgren.

Cyndy 198x300
Tonight, I was railing Sunday Night HORSE on Full Tilt like I always do every Sunday night. (I write up the final table for another site. ) Anyway, Cyndy Violette decided to stop by and wish Ryon "7cardRyoff" Nicholson good luck at the final table. Another player at the final table, davidmfio, decided that he would take the chance to try and get her number.

Allen Kessler twittered that Isildur1 was playing low stakes at Full Tilt. (Which apparently means $50 - $100 NL. ) Anyway, I went over to see who he was playing and I clicked on the two tables that he and Ashton Griffin were playing on. Well, they were there, but Isildur1 wasn't playing.

High Stakes Poker Has Become Brutal

Last night I watch High Stakes Poker for the first time since they have went over to the new format. OMG it was brutal. While I like Gabe Kaplan, he seriously needed AJ Benza there or some type of wingman. The banter that the two had back and forth was sorely missed.

Full Tilt Playing With Pandora's Box?

19 February 2010 , By: compncards

The big story over the last few days is the fact that it appears that Full Tilt Poker has decided to enact a ban of any events that are being held by PokerStars, more specifically the NAPT (North American Poker Tour). A recent charity event in Vegas was also snubbed by Full Tilt and their red pros. The fact that Full Tilt is telling their players not to play a PokerStars event does not concern me as much as it does other. If Full Tilt does not want it’s players playing on the NAPT, that hurt them and potentially their pros.
