Rush Poker: Strategy, Pros and Cons
It seems that most players are quite happy with the recently
introduced Rush Poker feature at Full Tilt Poker, and after
trying it out for a few hours I have to agree with the
majority that itâs a pretty cool idea. Itâs not a
100% great feature though â it certainly has some
disadvantages. On the other hand itâs incredibly
entertaining. Full Tilt is marketing Rush Poker as extremely fast paced,
and thatâs no exaggeration.

Game Theory: Poker Session Ends in a Gunfight
You are playing in a dodgy poker game against two players. All of you go all-in, but neither of you thinks he holds the
winning hand. Instead of revealing your cards everybody
pulls out their guns. Who do you shoot?
You are very fast and get your gun out first; however, you
are a terrible shot and only hit your target 10% of the
Tiffany Michelle - Political Expert?

The choice in "gambler" I must admit baffles me a bit, at

Things That Annoy Me at the Poker Table
What annoys you at the poker table? The other day, I read an
article on another site where Linda Johnson shared some
things that annoy her at the poker table. I figured I would
share a few things that bug me as well. I hate people that take forever to make a call in a limit
poker game. It is ONE BET.

The WSOP Circuit event kicked off this week in Tunica, MS
and it looks like I will not be making a trip down there
this year. Last year, I was fortunate enough to be asked to
cover the Main Event of the Circuit, but in all honesty,
that is the only reason that I went. I used to enjoy going to Tunica. In fact, it was the first

Microgaming Network to Block Data Mining
The Microgaming Network announced this past Thursday that it
is taking step to curb data mining of hand histories such as
those that led to the Isildur1 controversy. From this point
on, any sites on the network will no longer save hand
histories on players computers and users will no longer be
able to download hand histories in bulk. There are many players that are heralding this decision and
thinks that sites such as Full Tilt and PokerStars should
follow suit. However, has anyone stopped to think about a
few things that this type of policy could bring about?
Remember the Pitbull Poker scandal? What was one of the
things that tipped players off that something was amiss? The
fact that the site would not give out hand histories.
