The 20 Most Influential People in Poker - #10 - Viktor "Isildur1" Blom
Due to the April 15th indictments, I was forced to rethink
the rest of the Top 20 Most Influential People in Poker
list. In fact, the next player on the list fell about three spots
as a result. Back in late 2009, a new player exploded on the scene. In a
short amount of time, this player took a staggering $5
million from internet superstar Tom Dwan and instantly made
himself a high-stakes legend.

about the amount of time it will take players to get their
money back from Full Tilt and PokerStars. As I discussed in my last blog, PokerStars is currently
processing withdrawals from US players and there are reports
from all over the US of players getting their funds back
already. Now it appears that Full Tilt is ready to pay back funds. Earlier in the week, Full Tilt released an FAQ for US
players saying that an announcement would be made regarding
payouts later this week.

To quote what one of his guests said during the pokercast,

Redhead of the Month - April - Old School Redhead
Your Redhead of the Month for the month of April is a bit of
a throwback to the 80's and early 90's. Â Back to a time
when women had shape and didn't have to look anorexic in

This is the type of woman that you dreamed would fall on
your plate but most of you were too chicken to go after.

US Government Drops the Bomb on Online Poker
I am not a conspiracy theorist. However, I am a realist. For years now, online poker sites have been finding a way to
circumvent the UIGEA and still provide payments to online
poker players. Â Anyone with any common sense knew that
the sites were playing with fire.
