Top 10 Moments in Poker for 2010 - Part 2

28 December 2010 , By: compncards
Phil Ivey
In yesterday's blog, I started counting down my list of the Top 10 Poker Moments of 2010 by giving you #10 through #6.   Today, I will give you the my top five moments. *#5 - Phil Ivey Wins 8th Bracelet* * ** * Many of you would figure that Ivey's 8th bracelet win would be the #1 moment in poker for me this year, but I expect him to win every year, so this was not a surprise.   However, the way he came back against Bill Chen was definitely news worthy.

Poker Site Campaign Ad Rejects

Antonius Full Tilt
I logged onto Full Tilt to play a little Stud Hi-Lo and inspiration came to me for a new slogan for the site. As such, I figured I would share some ads that were rejected from various sites.    (Ad tag line in photo caption. ) *Full Tilt Poker:* For some reason, Full Tilt thought that trying to convince people they might actually win would be a better way to go: *Poker Player Magazine:* Daniel Negreanu was pegged to be this site's spokesman, but there were privacy concerns: You can talk to these guys about anything.
