Annie and Jeffrey 430x286
I just spent the last few minutes reading Annie Duke's speech that she gave at the 2011 Women In Poker Hall of Fame induction ceremony. I must say that I was thoroughly impressed by her words. Annie addressed a topic that some of us touched on a few weeks ago and that is the lack of female participation at the WSOP this year. Only 3% of the field was comprised of women.

30 August 2011 , By: compncards
Kristy Arnett recently interviewed Daniel Negreanu and, I must admit, she picked a great person to interview since he loves to hear himself talk so much. She asked him his opinions on several topics and I figured I would give my opinions on his opinions since I like to hear myself talk as well. Here's the video for those who want to watch it: [youtube]http://www. youtube.

Erik Seidel and Full Tilt Pros Accused of Collusion

Moneymaker Seidel 206x300
Erik Seidel has had an epic 2011. Since the beginning of the year, he has taken down two major high-roller events and the NBC National Heads-Up Championship to take over the all-time money list lead. However, there are now allegations arising that are beginning to cast doubt as to whether these wins were indeed legitimate. It all started with a post on the TwoPlusTwo forums a couple of weeks ago when poster "CrownWatchdog186" posted that the fix was in for both the $100,000 Challenge match and the $250,000 buy-in Super High Roller event.
