There is a video floating around the poker community where Nolan Dalla is making fun of Daniel Colman's claim that poker. Check it out below. The whole Daniel Colman situation reminds me of the movie Vampire in Brooklyn and the scene where the vampire (played by Eddie Murphy) was preaching that "Evil must be Good.

Mike Leah Bracelet Winner 2014 APAC 277x300
I'm writing this just a few minutes after watching Mike Leah win the $25,000 High Roller Event of the 2014 World Series of Poker Asia-Pacific. Mike is a coach for Ivey League and as some of you know, I worked for Ivey Poker until this past July.

Colman Busquet 430x296
PokerStars recently issued a directive stating that players are no longer allowed to wear items at the table that make a political statement. This stemmed from the recent EPT High Roller Event where Daniel Colman wore a "Free Palestine" shirt at the final table and Olivier Busquet wore a "Save Gaza" shirt. Whether the shirts were worn as a political statement or to support the innocent caught up in the conflicts, PokerStars stepped in and said no to future occurrences. This has brought forth a string of post from various media members.
