"Oh my God, Barry Shulman is such a fucking luckbox!" That seemed to be the cry by many railbirds at the end of the World Series of Poker Europe when Shulman beat Negreanu to take the bracelet. Here is how it went down. Daniel was leading with around 6 Million chips and Shulman had around 4 Million. On a jack high flop, Shulman bet out and Daniel made a raise to 900,000.

PitBull Poker Dead - Good Luck Getting Your Money

Pitbull Poker is indeed dead. A couple of days ago, fellow Poker Junkie Glen posted a comment on my last post about the troubled site stating that he has not received any of the $7,600 of the bankroll he had on the site. The day he posted this, I found the following on 2+2 forums posted by "former" Network Manager Dave Brenes: hey guys! I’m Dave Brenes… I am only returning for one last post… several weeks ago Kevin Baronowski took away the login to 2+2 from me and since then I stopped following up on the threads as per his request. Tonight one of the people at Pitbull called me in at 3am… Kevin and Jordan were trying to take out the computers and leave without saying anything!!! I’m effectively not working for Pitbull obviously, but I just wanted to tell you that Pitbull is over… we will make sure things come out clear.

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.

On discriminating tournaments

28 September 2009 , By: Lady Junkie
I agree with compncards[http://www. pokerjunkie. com/poker-blog/live-poker/a-man-wins-a-womens-poker-event-cue-up-the-firing-squad] that discriminating tournaments could probably be disposed of pretty much. Women should be able to compete against men in poker.

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.
