The poker world has been in a major uproar recently over comments made by Daniel Colman claiming that Phil Hellmuth is a cancer on society. This is where I normally chime in with my comments either defending or condemning Colman's comments but my research has discovered an interesting fact. Phil Hellmuth is indeed a Cancer. Cancer is the astrological sign for those born from June 22 - July 22.

16 July 2014 , By: compncards
Phil Wins 10th 430x286
The 2014 World Series of Poker is now concluded until November and this year's series has proven the most successful in history. Back in mid-May, I made my annual WSOP prediction and once again, I cranked out more wins than losses, but just barely. Ivey and Hellmuth Win Bracelets - Daniel Blanks -- Result: 2/3 Credit Selbst Wins Women Make an Impact - Result: Half Credit At Least Two Qualifiers from WSOP. com Make the November Nine --Result: Fail Mixed Game Tournament Set Records - Result: Epic Win Main Event Field = 7,063 - Result - Half Credit.

Congratulations to future the 2014 Big One for ONE DROP champion. On paper, you will take home $20 million in prize. How much will that champion take home in reality? Good question. Greg Merson recently spoke on the realities of many pros playing in the ONE DROP event.

Five Easy 2012 WSOP Predictions Revisited

Hellmuth Wins 12 430x286
Back in May, I made Five Easy 2012 WSOP Predictions[http://www. pokerjunkie. com/five-easy-2012-wsop-predictions] just prior to the 2012 World Series of Poker kicking off. With the Main Event now on hiatus until October, I figured it was time to revisit those picks and see whether I hit the mark.

Phil Hellmuth Wins Bracelet #12 and the Fall of #BadJuju

Hellmuth 12 199x300
Phil Hellmuth finally took down his 12th WSOP bracelet last night by winning the $2,500 Razz Event.   This was going down while the "Tiger Woods of Poker", Phil Ivey, was going after his 9th over in the $10k PL Hold'em Event. In the end, Hellmuth continued to add to his career total while Ivey just missed out.   Thinking about it, if Ivey is the "Tiger Woods of Poker", wouldn't that make Hellmuth Jack Nicklaus? Think about it.

I Want What Phil Hellmuth is Smoking

Pass the bowl 430x244
Can I have what Phil Hellmuth is smoking? "I wouldn't be surprised if online poker was passed in the next five days. " I've got my Baked Cheetos ready for whatever wacky weed that Hellmuth is smoking. Did his Magic 8-Ball tell him that online poker regulation was likely soon or is this just another Hellmuth sales pitch? Don't get me wrong. I like Phil.

2011 WSOP November Nine Update - Heinz On Top While O'Dea Drops Like a Rock

7 November 2011 , By: compncards
Heinz 430x286
We're still at 9 players going into the second break in the November Nine.   Pius Heinz has be far been the biggest surprise in my opinion.   He has skyrocketed to the chip leadership with 49. 95 Million in chips.

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.
