That Room is Dirty!
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.

The World Poker Tour - Hosted By Poker Hall of Famer Mike Sexton
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's Next TV Project NOT High Stakes 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.
The Poker Player's Prayer
For those of you that watched PokerStars Million Dollar
Challenge on Fox, you are aware of Father Andrew Trapp, also
known as the "Poker Playing Priest. " In honor of his
performance on the show, I offer the following, "Poker
Player's Prayer. "
Our father who art in Vegas,
Doyle be thy name. The flop has come,

With 9 outs just as well as 4.

Phil Hellmuth Naked - Not Offered Porn Role
This past Friday, ESPN the Magazine put out a "Body Issue"
that featured athletes from all sports playing their sport
in the nude. Poker was included in this. Whether or not
poker is a sport is a debatable topic, but some of their
choices are scary. The four that were chosen were Scotty
Nguyen, Jennifer Harman, Daniel Negreanu, and.

It's Benza Good Knowing Ya
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

Who Will Be Poker's Cal Ripken?
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.

Durrrr Starring as Nosferatu?
I read recently that durrrr reminds people of a vampire. Â
I was watching a video of him on another site just now and
had paused it to buffer with him smiling. Â I see what
people are talking about. Â However, I don't get where
people thinks he looks like a member of the Twilight
Barry Shulman is a Luckbox!
"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:
Iâm Dave Brenesâ¦ I am only returning for one last
postâ¦ 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 3amâ¦ Kevin and Jordan were
trying to take out the computers and leave without saying
Iâm effectively not working for Pitbull obviously, but
I just wanted to tell you that Pitbull is overâ¦ we will
make sure things come out clear.
