Raymer 203x300
It appears that the latest player to cut online poker sponsorship ties is 2004 WSOP Main Event winner Greg "Fossilman" Raymer. While an official announcement has not been made as of yet, Raymer no longer appears on the site as a sponsored pro. Rumor has it that PokerStars officials were playing hardball at the recent PokerStars Caribbean Adventure and told sponsored pros that they had to take a cut in pay or no longer be sponsored. It appears that Raymer has taken the later.

Recently, Daniel Negreanu overtook Phil Ivey for the top spot on the all-time money list for poker. Erik Seidel also moved up to 3rd all-time off the strength of three performances this month in high roller events. The most recent being a $2. 5 million score from a Super High Roller's Event at the PCA with a $250,000 buy-in.

Russ Hamilton 286x300
There is currently an epic thread over at TwoPlusTwo forums regarding a trip that users "Slifdog" and "billysharkey" made to a Florida poker room. In the 5/10/20 NL game they were playing in was none other than UltimateBet Cheating mastermind Russ Hamilton. Below is an except from the post "Billy proceeds to engage Russ in conversation. Russ is clueless for the first few pleasantries, but then Billy starts to get under Russ's skin with an array of subtle verbal abuses that imply that Russ is karmic-ally screwed unlovable rat with no chance of having real friends and that Russ will have to always look over his shoulder and fear for his safety.

Doyle Brunson Considering Leaving Las Vegas

Doyle
Doyle Brunson revealed in his blog Tuesday that he is considering leaving Las Vegas due to the lack of high limit action.   He stated that Vegas is not a very desirable place for a poker pro anymore. Doyle's consideration of moving to California is a good one in my opinion.   Personally, if I were to move someone just for the sake of playing poker, California would be one of the first places that I would consider.

For the first time in the history of televised poker, ESPN2 on Saturday ran the final table of a major event live when they ran the PCA Main Event complete with hole cards. This was a stark change from past attempts at running an event live on the internet.   There were no delays in the broadcast and we actually got to see the entire match. Sadly, there weren't any big names at this final table to draw in casual fans, but with that said, the broadcast was still very memorable.

Jonathan Duhamel 200x300
Jonathan Duhamel was announced on Tuesday as the latest PokerStars pro.   He becomes the latest in a long line of WSOP Main Event winners to sign a deal with the online site. In fact, since 2003, PokerStars has signed every Main Event winner except two - and one of those (Jamie Gold) couldn't pay to get sponsored. PokerStars always seems to make the right choice in who to patch.
