his blog[http://www. blackbeltpoker. com/blogs/read/4330163/badbeat/Failure-to-Engage/] I played semi-professionally for two years starting in 2006 and I can tell you that even from that point until now, things have changed dramatically in not just the game but also how people act. I play very few live NL Hold'em events nowadays.

WSOP Ladies Event 2013 426x300
The Ladies Event final table is currently playing out at the 2013 World Series of Poker and for the first time in years, this event did not include male participants. Earlier this year, WSOP officials announced that the event would "officially" be a $10,000 event with ladies receiving a $9,000 discount. Some pointed out that the WSOP was walking a legal tightrope offering the reduced rate but was not challenged prior to the event. Men could have participated if they wanted to, but they had to pay $10,000.

Crown Exterior 430x268
When the World Series of Poker expanded to Europe, some of us wondered if that would be the first step in the WSOP offering bracelet events worldwide. That day has finally arrived as the WSOP announced on Monday that the WSOP Asia-Pacific will commence in April 2013. The event will be held at the Crown Casino in Melbourne Australia and will feature five bracelet events its first year. The deal that was announced was a multi-year one, so this is not just a one-time event.
