Babe for September 2009:

That Room is Dirty!
Whatever happened to poker players going to a casino and

many poker rooms. Heaven forbid if the tables are a little
worn or if the chips are dirty.

Immigration Explains US Poker Dominance
Poker writer James McManus mentions an interesting theory on
the connection between immigration and poker skills. It
could explain the US dominance in poker. *In short, the theory goes like this:*
People who decide to leave their homeland to go after a
better life in unknown territory carry a gene that promotes

break up, and it also gives them the upper hand at the poker
Vanessa Rousso's Next TV Project NOT High Stakes Poker
Vanessa Rousso has squashed the rumors that she will be the
