Day 15 at the 2010 WSOP has kicked off with the $1,000 Ladies World Championship. While there five other events that will either kick off or resume a little later today, right now the ladies are getting all of the attention. *No Boys Allowed* A trend that has been popping up all around the country is men entering women’s events. The WSOP Ladies 2010  is no exception.

Today is Ash Wednesday and the beginning of Lent. The start of which is celebrated by Mardi Gras or Fat Tuesday, giving everyone the opportunity to over indulge in whatever it is they may be giving up for the next 40 days and 40 nights. Poker players tend to overindulge in a lot of things, given the fact that they live on a different schedule than most people and are used to having anything they want at any given time. I asked a few poker players what it was they would give up for 40 days if they had to choose.

A Big Warm Welcome For...Me!!!

Hey all just want to introduce myself- My names Melissa Castello and I have been invited by Poker Junkie to keep you all informed on what’s happening in the poker world. I spent the last two years traveling to cover some of the biggest poker tournaments from around the world. I've devoted hours to watching some of the best players in the game work their magic, while at the same time watching some of the worst players botch the game of poker completely. My brain hurts from the countless bad beat stories I've sat through, all while auto-nodding my head followed by one of my standard replies - 'man I hate when that happens, yeah that sucks, that's the worst', or a simple 'brutal.
