Real Action at the EPT Berlin

1 7 March 2010 , By: Melissa Castello
Poker can be pretty boring from an outsiders point of view, but that's not the case today!! Some real action occurred at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in Berlin when six men stormed the hotel and robbed the PokerStars EPT of over €800,000 (that's almost the amount guaranteed to first place)! You can watch the what the robbery looked like from the tournament floor as the live coverage from PokerStars TV caught the action. [youtube]http://www. youtube. com/watch?v=QFn3XxRWcO0[/youtube] All poker media outlets have been reporting on it and my favorite so far is Pokernews turning CNN.

WSOP All Star 300x300
The official over at the World Series of Poker have been hinting over the last couple of days that there might be an All-Star event at this year's WSOP. Last year we had the Champions Invitational where any living WSOP Main Event winner could participate. This year, the WSOP is asking fans for a list of 20 players to round out an All-Star field. I decided that I would give my 20 picks and my criteria for selection.

So if anyone follows, or even cares, about relationships in poker, then you know that David Benyamine and Erica Schoenberg split up sometime around the end of last year. No details have been given about the breakup, but such occurrences are not uncommon in poker. It now appears that Erica has moved on to someone else, and it just so happens that this someone else is another Full Tilt pro. PokerListings first broke the news that Erica is now apparently involved with Erick Lindgren.

Tonight, I was railing Sunday Night HORSE on Full Tilt like I always do every Sunday night. (I write up the final table for another site. ) Anyway, Cyndy Violette decided to stop by and wish Ryon "7cardRyoff" Nicholson good luck at the final table. Another player at the final table, davidmfio, decided that he would take the chance to try and get her number.
