What if Poker Players Legally Changed Their Names?

Ron Artest 247x300
Los Angeles Lakers star Ron Artest has legally changed his name to Metta World Peace. To quote WWE Superstar The Miz, really? At least his intentions are good. He is trying to inspire and bring youth together as a result of his name change. Naturally, this got me thinking about poker players that might consider legally changing their names.

JBL Laughing 385x300
Is anyone else besides myself getting tired of hearing about Isildur1 and Jean-Robert Bellande? Seriously. I read in my Twitter timeline today that Bellande has a bankroll of $400. A little while later I read how Isildur1 took another big loss at the tables after booking a big win at the tables. Once and for all, here is the basic storyline for both players: ******* *Jean-Robert Bellande:* I am broke.

Jean-Robert Bellande Busto and a Tale of Two Broke Blokes

JRB1 227x300
In 2008, I covered the $1,500 Limit Holdem shootout and was the blogger for the final table where Jean Robert Bellande finished runner-up to Matt Graham. At the time of the event, there were a few people actually wondering how Bellande made the final table as they didn’t feel that he was that great of a player. It now appears that they may actually have been right as it looks as if Bellande is broke. Ok, if you follow his twitter at @ BrokeLivingJRB, you will see that he has a bankroll of $3,300.

Matt Graham - Lucky or Comeback King?

Matt Graham won his second WSOP bracelet the other night, winning the $10,000 Pot Limit Omaha World Championship. His bracelet win paralleled his first bracelet win in so many ways. I was on hand covering Graham’s first bracelet win last year in the $1,500 Limit Holdem Shootout. The final table drug on well into the morning hours and at one point, Graham had a crippled stack.
