Yesterday, I gave my thoughts on five of the ten finalists for the 2011 Poker Hall of Fame class. Today I will round out my predictions and tell you who I think the other person that will be inducted this year. *Annie Duke* - This nomination surprised me, but yet it didn't surprise me. Nobody can deny her track record.

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.

annie duke NBC head up 2010
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.

2010 Women in Poker Hall of Fame Class Announced

19 August 2010 , By: compncards
Jennifer Harman1
The Women in Poker Hall of Fame announced their 2010 class last week and, as I figured, my two picks were inducted into the Hall along with someone else I never heard of. Jennifer Harman was to me an obvious choice due to the fact that she is clearly the best all around female player on the planet. She is the only woman to consistently play at the high limits of Bobby's Room year in and year out and is the only woman in history to have 2 open WSOP bracelets. Kathy Liebert is the all-time women's money winner and clearly the best female NL Holdem tournament player on the planet.

2010 WSOP Predictions - How Did I Do?

Christine Pietsch 200x300
The 2010 WSOP has finally wrapped up, or at least until November anyway.   We saw a lot of history made and big headline stories along the way.   I thought I would take a few moments to review some of the predictions I made a couple of days prior to the start of the Series. *Women Will Not Walk Away With Three Bracelets - Result: Push* Technically, I nailed this one based on the title, but I also said I thought that women would walk away with 2 bracelets including the Ladies Event.

WSOP Day 38 Second Update - TOC Finally Over, Daniel Alaei Wins 3rd Bracelet, and the Circus is Coming!!

5 July 2010 , By: compncards
Howard Lederer 199x300
It has been a very interesting, and late, night at the 2010 World Series of Poker. Four events were underway tonight, but only half of them completed. Huck Seed won the Tournament of Champions and Daniel Alaei won his 3rd career bracelet. *Tournament of Champions Grind Finally Over* While many pros did their typical "thank you for the opportunity" speech at the end of the event, the one word that stuck out before the final table began was #clusterfuck.

WSOP Commentary: Year of the Woman and Other WSOP Myths

This year at the 2010 World Series of Poker has been dubbed with different “Year Of’s. ” I thought it was interesting to see how some of the “big stories” coming into the 2010 WSOP have been developing. *Year of the Woman* Coming into the WSOP, Ty Stewart made the prediction that 2 or 3 women would win open field WSOP events. Mike Matusow stated that if this happened, he would run naked down the strip.
