Whatever happened to poker players going to a casino and playing poker. When did players get to the point where they expect their poker experience to be like that from Television. I have played poker all around the country and there are a lot of players that act like they are beneath many poker rooms. Heaven forbid if the tables are a little worn or if the chips are dirty.

Mike Sexton has been officially announced as the next inductee into the Poker Hall of Fame. Sexton was the only man to receive the needed number of votes necessary to guarantee enshrinement. I could go on about what Mike has done for the game of poker and how deserving he was, but instead, I thought I would share my own Mike Sexton story and some observations that I have picked over the last few years. I first met Mike Sexton at the 2006 World Series of Poker.

Vanessa Rousso has squashed the rumors that she will be the female co-host for the next season of High Stakes Poker. That's too bad for several reason. Yes, I am like many men that find her hot. (However, I am not like my blogger friend TassieDevil who would sit with mouth slightly agape while covering her at the WSOP.

It looks like AJ Benza has been replaced for the next season of High Stakes Poker. According to Benza's blog, he has been replaced with a currently unnamed female host. I am not sure exactly what I think about this move by GSN. I will admit that I have never been a big fan of Benza, but at the same time, I think that he and Kaplan work well together.

In sports, there are records that seem unbreakable. Lou Gehrig's streak of consecutive games played was a record that was supposed to stand for all time until Cal Ripken, Jr broke it. Roger Maris' 61 homers was another that was supposed to be next to unbreakable. However, Mark McGuire, Sammy Sosa, and Barry Bonds have all hit more in a single season than Maris.

I read recently that durrrr reminds people of a vampire.   I was watching a video of him on another site just now and had paused it to buffer with him smiling.   I see what people are talking about.   However, I don't get where people thinks he looks like a member of the Twilight cast.

"Oh my God, Barry Shulman is such a fucking luckbox!" That seemed to be the cry by many railbirds at the end of the World Series of Poker Europe when Shulman beat Negreanu to take the bracelet. Here is how it went down. Daniel was leading with around 6 Million chips and Shulman had around 4 Million. On a jack high flop, Shulman bet out and Daniel made a raise to 900,000.

PitBull Poker Dead - Good Luck Getting Your Money

Pitbull Poker is indeed dead. A couple of days ago, fellow Poker Junkie Glen posted a comment on my last post about the troubled site stating that he has not received any of the $7,600 of the bankroll he had on the site. The day he posted this, I found the following on 2+2 forums posted by "former" Network Manager Dave Brenes: hey guys! I’m Dave Brenes… I am only returning for one last post… several weeks ago Kevin Baronowski took away the login to 2+2 from me and since then I stopped following up on the threads as per his request. Tonight one of the people at Pitbull called me in at 3am… Kevin and Jordan were trying to take out the computers and leave without saying anything!!! I’m effectively not working for Pitbull obviously, but I just wanted to tell you that Pitbull is over… we will make sure things come out clear.
