Some Online Players Go Both Ways

Cyndy 198x300
Tonight, I was railing Sunday Night HORSE on Full Tilt like I always do every Sunday night. (I write up the final table for another site. ) Anyway, Cyndy Violette decided to stop by and wish Ryon "7cardRyoff" Nicholson good luck at the final table. Another player at the final table, davidmfio, decided that he would take the chance to try and get her number.

In relation to Charlie Rivers Poker Lookalikes blog, Facebook recently had Doppelganger week and for those of you who don’t know what that is; DOPPLEGANGER: any double or look-alike of a person. Now I’m not friends with every poker player but I did notice a few funny pics and want to share some hit and misses with you guys. Adam Levy as N’SYNC’s Joey Fatone - MATCH!!! Adamdoppl Jeff Madsen as Brad Pitt - FAIL! He wishes!! madsen fightclub Evelyn Ng as Lucy Liu - WINNER! Though any hot Asain actress would have worked. evelyn evng-liucyliu   Joe Sebok as Monkey? - I guess I can see the resemblance.

I shouldn't have started looking for poker lookalikes. It has become like a drug for me. Last night I woke up in cold sweat just because I can't find a perfect match for Phil Hellmuth. What does he look like? An animal of some sort? A dog? Anyway, here are some of the lookalikes I actually found, and if you come up with who the Poker Brat looks like, please drop me a line.

Allen Kessler twittered that Isildur1 was playing low stakes at Full Tilt. (Which apparently means $50 - $100 NL. ) Anyway, I went over to see who he was playing and I clicked on the two tables that he and Ashton Griffin were playing on. Well, they were there, but Isildur1 wasn't playing.

Verschränkung! Schrödinger's Hole Cards

How does quantum mechanics and a half-dead cat relate to your ability to read your opponents' hole cards? Maybe a lot less than you think. The Austrian physicist Erwin Schröder's famous experiment of placing a cat in a box with a Geiger counter, a radioactive substance and a flask of hydrocyanic acid is interesting in itself: After a while, the radioactive substance might and might not (both are equally likely) have released a subatomic particle that set of the Geiger counter, which in turn would have released the poison and killed the cat. According to one interpretation of quantum mechanics, the cat would then be simultaneously alive and dead. (Obviously no peeking is allowed.

Poker Is not Gambling. Set it Free

2 23 February 2010 , By: Charlie River
In courts across the country, as well as in the US Senate, there are hard discussions around the issue of gambling legislation. Financial institutions are hard pressed to stop transactions to gambling operators. And online poker players are deeply affected by all this. Shipping cash to the poker sites is getting harder by the day.

Reality TV Star Gets 15 More Minutes

William Hung 225x300
The WPT Celebrity Invitational is a charity re-buy tournament held during the LAPC at the Commerce Casino. The charity that benefits from the event is Chrysalis, a Los Angeles based non-profit organization dedicated to helping the homeless population become self-sufficient through job training and employment opportunities. This year the WPT event went heads up with the NAPT inaugural event happening at the Venetian. I can'€™t imagine why any respectable poker player would want to pass up a $5k buy-in with a field 872 players and a $4 million prize pool to play in a $200k crap-shoot freeroll.

High Stakes Poker Has Become Brutal

Last night I watch High Stakes Poker for the first time since they have went over to the new format. OMG it was brutal. While I like Gabe Kaplan, he seriously needed AJ Benza there or some type of wingman. The banter that the two had back and forth was sorely missed.
