Redhead of the Month - Baseball Redhead
I was looking for a picture for a redhead in a sexy baseball
uniform, but I ran across the one below instead. Ok, I
realize that she isn't wearing a baseball uniform, so just
pretend she is associated with the "Cincinnati Reds. "Â
She can be my bat girl anytime. Or maybe we can play strip baseball poker.

The folks on another "poker news" website posted an article
debating who had the tougher road to the NBC National

Erik Seidel Wins Me $100 - And He Also Won the NBC National Heads-Up Title
The 2011 NBC National Heads-Up Championship has now
concluded and I figured I would take a few moments to
comment on the weekend. First, I realize that I got my
initial overall pick wrong. Ivey disappointed me with an
early first round exit, but my back-up pick of Erik Seidel
came through. So apparently this wasn't the year Mizrachi had a deep run
in the bracket.

Phil Ivey Sucks - Erik Seidel to Win NBC National Heads-Up Title
Things were going pretty well for me until the last bracket
last night. The first three brackets saw 5 out of 6 of my
picks for the elite 8 advance. Then disaster struck during
the spades bracket. Phil Ivey fell to Dan Cates.

My NBC National Heads-Up Championship Predictions
The NBC National Heads-Up Poker Championship kicks off today
at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. Normally, I don't go too
deep in covering this type of event other than giving whom I
think will win. This year is different since I actually have some money
riding on this thing. I'm currently part of the little
bracket contest that @kevmath is holding for the event.

Is Swedetooth the Biggest Luckbox in Poker History?
A few weeks ago, micro grinder "Swedetooth" came out of
literally nowhere to take down the Sunday MegaMillions and
$1. 2 Million. It was BY FAR one of the greatest upsets in
online poker history. He was heads-up with pocket kings against G1LD3NSTRN and
after an ace hit the board, he decided to shove.

I Would Have Called Isildur1 in This Spot
First, let me give DodgyFish72 all the props in the world
for an amazing comeback against Viktor "Isildur1" Blom
yesterday. He was down over $10,000 at the halfway point of
the PokerStars SuperStar Showdown and battled back to pull
even with one hand left. He then folded his big blind when Isildur1 moved all-in from
the small blind. I would have called.

Norm MacDonald Isn't As Bad As We Thought - He's Worse
A few weeks ago, it was announced that Norm MacDonald was
going to be the new host of High Stakes Poker. Back then, I
said I thought this would be a bad move. While I believed
what I wrote, I never expected the performance I listened to
last night. [assets/Uploads/Blog/Godzilla-Facepalm.

Poker and Morality - Would You Use a SuperUser Account?
I was listening to Donkdown Radio last night regarding the
latest on the UltimateBet cheating scandal and an
interesting question was posed by one of the callers. The
question was, if you somehow acquired a superuser account,
would you use it?
I think that many of us would strongly consider using the
account, especially if we thought we could get away with the
money like Russ and company have. Why do I think this you
ask?Â Simply put, when it comes to money and poker,
winning money takes precedence over all else. I know many of you out there are thinking that you would
never do that and you could not sleep at night.
