What is the worst job one could have in poker? Many would think that a dealer job would be scraping the bottom of the barrel, but there may be some people at work with worse jobs. #5. Jerry Yang's Agent I am not certain, but I don't think this position was ever actually filled. His lack of doing.

It looks like the lawsuit filed by Clonie Gowen against Full Tilt Poker has been dismissed. A couple of different sites are reporting that a motion to dismiss was filed by the group of defendants on February 10th and that motion has been granted. Gowen had been seeking $40 Million in damages after claiming that she was promised 1% of the company as part of a sponsorship deal. What can we take away from this folks? Get everything in writing.

Pokerjunkie friend Matt "AllInAt420" Stout recently made the final table for the 2nd straight year in the Main Event of the WSOP Circuit event in Tunica, MS. I was on hand in 2009 when he made his final table run and ultimate 3rd place finish. This year, both he and his buddy Paul Wasicka (yes, as in 2006 WSOP Main Event runner-up) made the final. Matt didn't quite make it as far as last year, finishing 7th, but Wasicka took down the event for $139,442.

Bernard Lee Recevies Casino Sponsorship Deal

1 10 February 2010 , By: compncards
Foxwoods Casino has signed a "celebrity" poker pro to serve as their official poker ambassador. Who did they choose? Bernard Lee. What? Are you serious? Out of all the poker pros that are out there that could be signed to a sponsorship deal, they pick him? Don't get me wrong, Lee has done well for himself since finishing 13th in the 2005 WSOP, but in the last year or more he hasn't really done much of anything. It seems to me that there are a lot of other players that deserve a shot a casino sponsorship over him.

Saints Win and M*A*S*H Record Falls

9 February 2010 , By: compncards
Congratulations to the New Orleans Saints for their winning the Super Bowl. Indianapolis played horribly the 2nd half and the Saints took advantage. On my Facebook, I stated that Tracy Porter is New Orleans' version of Kirk Gibson. I actually saw both the Porter return and the Gibson home run.

High Ho - High Ho - Off With Your Money Ho Goes

5 February 2010 , By: compncards
So there is now a poker coaching scandal involving former Stoxpoker. com instructor Jason Ho. Ho is supposedly one of a long line of internet kids that has claimed to have made over a Million online in 2008 and has been hiring himself out as a coach. Now it looks like that most of what he has been doing is a total scam and that there isn’t even any proof that he has won that kind of money online.
