I wanted to wait until the money was actually reached before I said anything about Doyle's performance at the WSOP Europe. However, now that they are in the money and he has almost 250,000 in chips, it's time to give him some props. Yes, Doyle is among the greatest of all-time, but it still is amazing to watch that man go as he gets older. I am also glad to see that he is still in the hunt for this title.

All Hail Hellmuth!

" I’ve always liked Phil Helmuth and have defended his tantrums because that is Phil being Phil, but these grand entrances he makes are too much! He came to my table dressed as Julius Caesar along with trumpets and scantily clad girls. It embarrassed me just being there. I would have liked to applied for the role of Brutus. I am a poker purist and stuff like that detracts too much from what a great game poker is.

Anyone Up For Positive Slavery?

Lady Junkie said that she is in favor of positive discrimination when it comes to poker tournaments. Positive discrimination? Why? Poker is not Affirmative Action. Poker is supposed to be open to all players, regardless of race, color, creed, etc. Why does there need to be positive discrimination? Hasn't there been enough AA in this country? In so many businesses, Affirmative Action has resulted in the "token minority.

Up until around 2004, Howard Lederer was one of the big forces on the poker circuit. Known as "The Professor", he won two WPT titles as well as two WSOP bracelets. Making the final table was as common as making a check-raise is to you or I. Then the poker boom hit and Lederer decided to focus more on his poker related businesses and Full Tilt Poker.

Women Will Never Be Equal in Poker

Lady Junkie said something in her blog that struck me as odd. She said that maybe her ranting would give readers a taste of what women had to put up with during the years of inequality. That assumes that women are considered equals at the poker table. I'm sorry to tell this to you ladies, but the years of inequality are still going on.

How can you even tell it’s a man?

Allegedly a man took part in a women only poker tournament and won. The casino couldn’t prevent him and a few other men from playing, with reference to the casino law. Fine with me. But how can you tell this is really a man? Has he gone through some kind of chromosome tests before or during the tournament? As far as I know this person doesn’t even have a beard.

Jeff Shulman Actually Does Something Smart - Ivey Still Unphased

The announcement was made this week that Jeff Shulman has hired Phil Hellmuth as his poker coach for the final table of the World Series of Poker in November. When, I first hear this, the first thing I thought was "I thought you wanted to throw the bracelet in the trash. " But it appears he has changed his mind and is touting this as a big deal. It makes sense that Shulman would pick Hellmuth to coach him.
