The guys at babesinpoker. com elected Negreanu their Poker Babe for September 2009: A bit surprising of course. Also, you may think, a welcome contribution to gender equality, seeing that all previous babes are ladies (less surprisingly. ) But equality goes only skin-deep in this case.

Whatever happened to poker players going to a casino and playing poker. When did players get to the point where they expect their poker experience to be like that from Television. I have played poker all around the country and there are a lot of players that act like they are beneath many poker rooms. Heaven forbid if the tables are a little worn or if the chips are dirty.

Mike Sexton has been officially announced as the next inductee into the Poker Hall of Fame. Sexton was the only man to receive the needed number of votes necessary to guarantee enshrinement. I could go on about what Mike has done for the game of poker and how deserving he was, but instead, I thought I would share my own Mike Sexton story and some observations that I have picked over the last few years. I first met Mike Sexton at the 2006 World Series of Poker.

Michele Lewis *Why is poker so much fun? ** * *Who is the best poker pro according to you? * *Phil Hellmuth handles large Hold'em fields better than a car** * *Between you and Phil Hellmuth, heads-up, seriously who would win? * Michele-Lewis-Phil-Hellmuth. 450 *Is poker a good endeavor for women to go into? If so, in what ways? * *Why are there so few women in pro poker? * *As a mother, would you encourage your children to play poker? * *Do you think a man would get that question? * *Do you have any tips to all our aspiring poker sisters out there?* Dan Harrington's books are an excellent start for learning the math but read as many books as possible. Don't focus on one book's style of play, take in everything and then develop a style that works for you. Don't believe everything you see on television.

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 risk taking, intelligence and decision making. This “migration gene” is what makes these people break up, and it also gives them the upper hand at the poker table.

Vanessa Rousso has squashed the rumors that she will be the female co-host for the next season of High Stakes Poker. That's too bad for several reason. Yes, I am like many men that find her hot.

It looks like AJ Benza has been replaced for the next season of High Stakes Poker. According to Benza's blog, he has been replaced with a currently unnamed female host. I am not sure exactly what I think about this move by GSN. I will admit that I have never been a big fan of Benza, but at the same time, I think that he and Kaplan work well together.
