Ultimate Bet announced in a press release yesterday that it will be cancelling its 2010 Aruba Poker Classic due to budget cuts in order to pay Joe Seboks salary.   No, not really, but they did cancel the event. After traveling to Asia, Europe, Australia and across the US for poker I have to say that Aruba is, errr, was my favorite tournament stop and I'm sad to see it go. Here is a blog I wrote after the 2009 Aruba Poker Classic: Yummm Aruba Aribe mmmmmm.

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.

Just look at the following graph: Based on my measurements of over 300 players of varying skill levels and different chair qualities, this clearly shows that it’s not worth skimping on your sitting area. Personally, I’ve invested in an exceptionally pleasant powered massage chair with a hand-held wand for easy operation.
