Ivey's WSOP Prop Bets - May Own Phil Gordon After the WSOP
About the only way you are probably going to win any money
off of Phil Ivey at the present is via prop bets, and that
isnât looking too good. According to an article from
PokerNews. com, Ivey is in line to win Millions if he is able
to take down the Main Event. Tom Dwan will lose $1 Million if Ivey wins the Main Event.

Leaving Atlantic City
Tuesday, I wrapped up what turned out to be close to two
weeks in Atlantic City. Most of my time up there was playing
in low stakes poker games. I turned a profit for the total
trip combined, which was a nice change from the last couple
of visits to Atlantic City. Granted, my other trips were not
huge losses, but I still prefer to turn a profit.
Another Superuser Scandal?
According to an article on PokerNewsDaily. com, Pitbull Poker
is facing allegations of both chip shaving and superuser
accounts. Pitbull Poker is a totally flash driven site that
is currently ranked 21st in the world. The first complaint seems to have been acknowledged as
legitimate by Pitbull Poker.
Prop Betting Hands
Ultimate Bet recently started up their 7-2 tables where
players put up money into a side pot and if someone at the
table wins a hand with 7-2, they win this bonus pot. Many of
you have probably seen side bets on television on High
Stakes Poker involving 7-2 and now players have the chance
to test their poker skills with this new format. That got me to thinking about some potentially interesting
Queen-3. There should a side pot for the queen trey.
Do You Still Watch Televised Poker
How much televised poker do you still watch? Today, another
website reported that NBCâs new Face the Ace program
debuted in last place with 1. 59 Million viewers in the first
half hour and 1. 54 Million in the 2nd hour. For most cable
networks, this would be great, but for a major network, this

Thang Luu is a Jackass
Thang Luu went from being a two time bracelet winner to an
utter idiot. In a story that I just heard about thanks to
another website, apparently Thang Luu got himself banned
from Harrah's for breaking a dealer's hand. From the reports I have read, Luu and another player were in
a pot until showdown. The other player stated that he could
not see Luu's cards.
Maria Ho and Tiffany Michelle to Appear on Amazing Race - Do You Care?
According to reports, it looks like that Maria Ho and
Tiffany Michelle are going to be contestants in the Amazing
Race on CBS. Although word is not official, there are rumors
and a pic that shows Ho waiting for filming to begin for the
Amazing Race at LAX. If true, Ho and Michelle will be the latest poker players
that have turned into reality TV stars. Jean Robert Bellande
was famous for his appearance on Survivor and Annie Duke
finished runner-up in the previous season of Celebrity
Patience Is a Virtue I Have Apparently Lost
Most poker players are afraid to tell you about their bad
session or some of their bad decisions due to the fact that
they feel that they will be looked down upon. Well, poker is
a game where you will make bad decision and I will tell you
that lately, one problem that I have been lately is being
too aggressive in spots late in tournaments or sit-n-go's. Tonight I had two prime examples. One was in seven card stud
and the other was in stud 8.
Seven Card Stud,
The Last Woman Standing
Am I the only person that is getting tired of the whole
"last woman standing" bit at major poker tournaments and at
the World Series of Poker? Leo Margets is the latest in a
long line of "last women standing" from the Main Event of
the World Series of Poker. If this was the 1970's and 1980's
when the number of women players was miniscule compared to
the number of men playing, then maybe I could see doing
this. Now, I am not so sure that this is helpful to poker. Granted, I know WHY that it is done.
