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.

Top 10 Moments in Poker for 2010 - Part 2

28 December 2010 , By: compncards
Phil Ivey
In yesterday's blog, I started counting down my list of the Top 10 Poker Moments of 2010 by giving you #10 through #6.   Today, I will give you the my top five moments. *#5 - Phil Ivey Wins 8th Bracelet* * ** * Many of you would figure that Ivey's 8th bracelet win would be the #1 moment in poker for me this year, but I expect him to win every year, so this was not a surprise.   However, the way he came back against Bill Chen was definitely news worthy.

My November Nine Predictions Revisited

Jonathan Duhamel Main Event Champion 430x296
A couple of days prior to the Main Event, I made four predictions regarding the November Nine final table. I watched the event Saturday and Monday and even last night on ESPN. It was a very entertaining final table leading up to heads-up play. Heads-up, not so much.

The most recognizable face at the table without a doubt is Michael ‘The Grinder’ Mizrachi. We’ve known the Grinder for quite some time in the poker world but he’s had an exceptional 2010 World Series of Poker and is still in the running for WSOP Player of the Year. The Mizrachi brothers all cashed the Main Event and were a focus of the ESPN broadcast until one of the four brothers and the biggest name remaining actually had a chance to make the November Nine.   *“It was the Main Event so a lot of the coverage was on me and I just watched myself to see what I did right and wrong.

Poker Site Campaign Ad Rejects

11 September 2010 , By: compncards
Antonius Full Tilt
I logged onto Full Tilt to play a little Stud Hi-Lo and inspiration came to me for a new slogan for the site. As such, I figured I would share some ads that were rejected from various sites.    (Ad tag line in photo caption. ) *Full Tilt Poker:* For some reason, Full Tilt thought that trying to convince people they might actually win would be a better way to go: *Poker Player Magazine:* Daniel Negreanu was pegged to be this site's spokesman, but there were privacy concerns: You can talk to these guys about anything.

M Mizrachi 429x287
During the 2010 WSOP, Michael Mizrachi was sporting a patch from Deliverance Poker. Nobody really knew much about the site, other than the fact that Mizrachi was a sponsored pro by the site. However, once he went deep into the Main Event, Mizrachi started sporting a Full Tilt Poker logo. Now, Mizrachi is being sued by Deliverance Poker.

Michael Mizrachi Wins1
So for the first time in probably three years, I watched a first run episode of the 2010 World Series of Poker on ESPN.  Tonight was the Poker Player's Championship episodes where Michael "The Grinder" Mizrachi took down his first every WSOP bracelet. I won't lie.   The main reason I watched was to see if they got some shots of me around the Rio.
