Tonight They're Playing Poker Like it's 1989
Daniel Negreanu recently made a statement that PEMM wasn't
going to help Phil Hellmuth play better but instead, Phil
needed to employ LTPB or "Learn to Play Better. "Â Well,
whether it was PEMM, LTPB, or Diet Pepsi, Phil has made the
final table of the Bay 101 Shooting Stars WPT Event. Â He
spent a good part of Thursday as the chip leader and will
enter the final table 2nd in chips behind Andy Seth. Seat 1 - Hassan Habib - 455,000
Seat 2 - Phil Hellmuth - 1,433,000
Seat 3 - Andy Seth - 2,164,000
Seat 4 - Matt Keikoan - 371,000
Seat 5 - McLean Karr - 111,200
Seat 6 - Daniel O'Brien, 1,129,000
Personally, I am rooting for Phil.

Noooooooooooooooo!!!!! UB Cancels Aruba Poker Classic : (
Ultimate Bet announced in a press release yesterdayÂ that
it will be cancelling its 2010 Aruba PokerÂ Classic due to
budget cuts in orderÂ to pay Joe Seboks salary. Â No,
not really, but theyÂ did cancel the event. After
traveling to Asia, Europe, AustraliaÂ and across the
USÂ for poker I have to say that ArubaÂ is, errr,Â was
my favorite tournament stop and I'm sad to see it go. Here is aÂ blog I wrote afterÂ theÂ 2009 Aruba Poker
Yummm Aruba Aribe mmmmmm.

The Hottest Woman in Poker According to Maxim is....Seriously?
I used to have some respect for Maxim, but after the recent
article, I have to wonder. Â While it is true that beauty
is in the eye of the beholder, I just don't get how Maxim
can claim that Tiffany Michelle is the hottest woman in
poker. Â Charlie River, did you get a gig moonlighting at
TwoPlusTwo forum posters are probably the harshest in the
world, but they do prove a point. Â She isn't all that
Poker Legislation under the Table – Again?
Stricter online poker legislation (UIGEA) was smuggled in
under the radar, embedded in an unrelated terrorist
legislation (Safe Port act). Now online poker could very well be smuggled out of its
prison cell and regulated, again under the radar embedded in
a tax legislation (Bipartisan Tax Fairness and
Thereâs a kind of logic in this. A certain consistency. Poker is something that you consistently avoid mentioning.
Welcome to Bizarro World
Phil Hellmuth is a cash game genius, T. J. Clouiter wins
consistently at craps, and Kathy Liebert is the top pro on
Full Tilt Poker. Â After my last few days of playing
online, I am convinced that the prior statements are indeed
true as I think I have officially moved into bizarro world.
Field Testing the Chutzpah Monitor
Although it hasnât been manufactured on a commercial
scale as of yet, you may have heard of it through the
grapevine; the revolutionary device called the Chutzpah
Monitor. It is a device similar to a gaydar that measures
the subjectâs alpha brainwaves to determine his exact
amount of chutzpah at any given moment. We know that the average amount of chutzpah has increased
dramatically among poker players (and perhaps society at
large) during the last few years, but attempts at gauging a
reasonably accurate amount in individuals have not been
successful. However, I have now put together a device that uses very
specific electroencephalography that measures neural
electron migrations at a molecular level and translates it
into an accurate chutzpah reading.

Real Action at the EPT Berlin
Poker can be pretty boring from an outsidersÂ point of
view, but that'sÂ not the caseÂ 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
â¬800,000 (that's almost the amount guaranteed to first
place)! You canÂ watch the what the robbery looked like
from the tournament floor as the liveÂ 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.
