Field Testing the Chutzpah Monitor

1 9 March 2010 , By: foldsworth
chutzpa hat
Although it hasn’t been manufactured on a commercial scale as of yet, you may have heard of it through the grapevine; the revolutionary device called the Chutzpah Monitor. It is a device similar to a gaydar that measures the subject’s alpha brainwaves to determine his exact amount of chutzpah at any given moment. We know that the average amount of chutzpah has increased dramatically among poker players (and perhaps society at large) during the last few years, but attempts at gauging a reasonably accurate amount in individuals have not been successful. However, I have now put together a device that uses very specific electroencephalography that measures neural electron migrations at a molecular level and translates it into an accurate chutzpah reading.

Real Action at the EPT Berlin

1 7 March 2010 , By: Melissa Castello
Poker can be pretty boring from an outsiders point of view, but that's not the case today!! Some real action occurred at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in Berlin when six men stormed the hotel and robbed the PokerStars EPT of over €800,000 (that's almost the amount guaranteed to first place)! You can watch the what the robbery looked like from the tournament floor as the live coverage from PokerStars TV caught the action. [youtube]http://www. youtube. com/watch?v=QFn3XxRWcO0[/youtube] All poker media outlets have been reporting on it and my favorite so far is Pokernews turning CNN.

I decided that I would give my 20 picks and my criteria for selection.

So if anyone follows, or even cares, about relationships in poker, then you know that David Benyamine and Erica Schoenberg split up sometime around the end of last year. No details have been given about the breakup, but such occurrences are not uncommon in poker. It now appears that Erica has moved on to someone else, and it just so happens that this someone else is another Full Tilt pro. PokerListings first broke the news that Erica is now apparently involved with Erick Lindgren.
