The hammer has fallen on UB's roster of sponsored pros. Blanca Gaming released a statement saying that "Blanca’s executive management team today informed its roster of sponsored pros that, in accordance with the provisions of their agreements, their contracts have been terminated. " According to the press release: "The full list of affected pros is as follows: Joe Sebok, Prahlad Friedman, Eric “Basebaldy” Baldwin, Maria Ho, Brandon Cantu, Tiffany Michelle, Scott Ian, “Hollywood” Dave Stann, Adam “Roothlus” Levy, Bryan Devonshire and Trishelle Cannatella.

Poker2Nite
It appears the Poker2Nite is no more, or at least according to the twitter’s of Joe Sebok and Scott Huff. Poker2Nite was a poker news program that started on Fox Sports Net and then moved to Versus for season 2. The program was cancelled due to sponsors not renewing according to a twitter from Huff. I wish I could say that this was shocking.

In relation to Charlie Rivers Poker Lookalikes blog, Facebook recently had Doppelganger week and for those of you who don’t know what that is; DOPPLEGANGER: any double or look-alike of a person. Now I’m not friends with every poker player but I did notice a few funny pics and want to share some hit and misses with you guys. Adam Levy as N’SYNC’s Joey Fatone - MATCH!!! Adamdoppl Jeff Madsen as Brad Pitt - FAIL! He wishes!! madsen fightclub Evelyn Ng as Lucy Liu - WINNER! Though any hot Asain actress would have worked. evelyn evng-liucyliu   Joe Sebok as Monkey? - I guess I can see the resemblance.
