Random Rants - Isildur1, Doyle, and the UIGEA

UIGEA
Today, I just feel like randomly ranting and commenting on some things. The Isildur1 Saga: Unlike the "sparkling vampires" saga, the Isildur1 saga is at least entertaining. The all-time record for largest pots played online has been broken multiple times and Isildur1 has been up and down more than a hooker on Fremont Street. For now, I am just considering this a nice blip in the online poker world.

The 2010 World Series of Poker was posted briefly online earlier in the day and then taken down. If you go over to 2+2 forums, you can take a look at what was posted. Odds are that the schedule is nowhere near accurate, but it gives you a good idea of what to expect. In an equally as interesting article in the Las Vegas Sun, Seth Palansky, the talking head of the WSOP, gave some insight into next year’s WSOP.

Jeffrey Pollack announced on Friday that he was stepping down as the commissioner of the WSOP effective immediately. In an interview given to another site, he stated that it was time to go as he normally only stays in places around 4 years. Also, he stated the split was amicable. A lot of people are sad to see Pollack's reign as commissioner end.

This year’s WSOP Main Event final table broadcast was sponsored by UltimateBet and as a result, most of the commentators on the program had either a tie to UB or to the players on the broadcast. David Chicotsky was in many cased the lead announcer and did a good job for the most part. My main gripe for a lot of the coverage was that the team did not focus on the poker as much as they should have. That changed when Phil Hellmuth jumped on board and joined the group.
