Hellmuth Wins 12 430x286
Back in May, I made Five Easy 2012 WSOP Predictions[http://www. pokerjunkie. com/five-easy-2012-wsop-predictions] just prior to the 2012 World Series of Poker kicking off. With the Main Event now on hiatus until October, I figured it was time to revisit those picks and see whether I hit the mark.

Ben Lamb Customized Plate Ideas and UFC on Fox

14 November 2011 , By: compncards
Ben Lamb recently purchased a BMW and got some vanity plates that read "BENBA 1. " While that's cute and all, maybe he should have gone with something a little more appropriate for his recent WSOP November Nine finish: 4ANDOUT KJIZWAK LMBCHOP ALLINBAD HNZMYDDY  (Heinz My Daddy) KJORBUST As much grief as I give Lamb, at least he lasted longer than Cain Velasquez did on Saturday. Can you imagine being the UFC heavyweight champ and headlining on Fox for the first-ever national broadcast of the UFC, just to get knocked out in 64 seconds? Watch the video below:.

2011 WSOP November Nine Day 1 Final - Ben Lamb Luckboxes His Way to Final Three

Luckboxen 2 430x286
The final three of the 2011 WSOP November Nine has been reached. Unfortunately, Ben Lamb luckboxed his way there. I say luckboxed because he was all-in and behind yet again four-handed and sucked out yet again. If you missed it, it was Lamb shoving with A-7 of diamonds and running into pocket jacks from Matt Giannetti.

2011 WSOP November Nine Dinner Break - Collins Out, Bari Booted and Puppies Saved

Collins 430x286
The November Nine are in the second half of their dinner break and we are down to just four players left. The other half of my heads-up match is out of it, leaving me with just Matt Giannetti left to make it to the final three. Phil Collins got his last 19 million into the middle after three bet shoving with Ad-7d. Pius Heinz woke up with nines and made the call.

2011 WSOP November Nine - Ben Lamb Luckboxes His Way to Cripple O'Dea

Lovely 430x281
I told you we were going to lose some folks this last level. We are down to just 6 players. Sam Holden was the first out when he ran As-Js into the Ah-Kc of Ben Lamb. Lamb caught clubs on the flop and turn to flush Holden out of the event.

2011 WSOP November Nine Update - Heinz On Top While O'Dea Drops Like a Rock

7 November 2011 , By: compncards
Heinz 430x286
We're still at 9 players going into the second break in the November Nine.   Pius Heinz has be far been the biggest surprise in my opinion.   He has skyrocketed to the chip leadership with 49. 95 Million in chips.

WSOP Europe Predictions Revisited

20 October 2011 , By: compncards
Mizrachi 430x286
The WSOP Europe has reached their final table with Shawn Buchanan, Chris Moorman, and Jake Cody headlining.   Normally I would wait until after Main Event was finished to update my predictions, but since none of my predictions are impacted by the final table, I figured I would go ahead and share how I did. *Phil Hellmuth Will Have One Strong Showing and May Take the POY Lead - Push* After Hellmuth whiffed Events 2 through 7, I almost considered this a loss, but since my wording said "may take the lead" I get to call this a push.   I know, I am angle shooting my own predictions.
