Today will be my last blog entry for about a week as I go to 4-H camp for a week. In addition, this blog isn't going to be much about poker past some back story on this year. For those of you that may follow me regularly on my twitter[https://twitter. com/compncards], you know that I have been in the process of losing a significant amount of weight, but I have never much went into the story of what brought me to that point, so today I will share that.

28 December 2010 , By: compncards
Phil Ivey
In yesterday's blog, I started counting down my list of the Top 10 Poker Moments of 2010 by giving you #10 through #6.   Today, I will give you the my top five moments. *#5 - Phil Ivey Wins 8th Bracelet* * ** * Many of you would figure that Ivey's 8th bracelet win would be the #1 moment in poker for me this year, but I expect him to win every year, so this was not a surprise.   However, the way he came back against Bill Chen was definitely news worthy.

Since we are entering the final week of 2010, it is time for me to be a lemming and do my year in review posts like every other poker blogger and writer in the poker media.  However, you all know I love to put my own opinion on this, so over the next couple of days, I will give you MY Top 10 Poker Moments of 2010. *#10 - Annie Duke Wins NBC National Heads-Up Championship* * * **** * * Annie Duke does not play the same schedule as many other pros due to her family.   As such, she really has to try and take advantage of the live events she plays in.

Soi Nguyen the admitted amateur at the table has not let the money or fame affect his life. He is still working his day job and even though he is the amateur he’s decided to not pursue coaching and has been talking scenarios with poker playing friends Nam Le and Tommy Le. *“The only time I’ve taken off of work was to play in a couple of local tournaments, Legends at the Bicycle Casino which I finished in 34th place and I played at a Bellagio event where I busted out the last level of the first day. ”* He know that he’s been shown on ESPN as the amateur as well and finds it flattering that they pitch him in that light and hope to influence and inspire others like Soi to play the WSOP.

The new face of Fein energy drink, John Racener, hasn’t been getting much sleep these days, but is it energy drink overload? I would probably guess the answer would be all the nerves, excitement, and build up surrounding the 2010 World Series of Poker Main Event final table happening in less than 24 hours. *“I’m extremely excited, I don’t really feel nervous or anything because this is what I do. It’s just something that I’m used to doing, playing poker; obviously it’s the biggest stage I’ll ever be on. I’ve had visions and dreams about hands at the final table, I’m thinking about it 24/7.
