Joran van der Sloot, the main suspect in the Natalee Holloway murder, is now wanted in connection with the murder of a young Peruvian girl which happened over the weekend, exactly 5 years to the day. The news is breaking worldwide today and it is being said that van der Sloot was in Peru for a poker tournament. The girl was found in his hotel room in Lima, Peru and there is video footage of the victim and suspect at the Atlantic City Casino where Poker Stars Latin America Poker Tour is being held. Many of the reporting sites are calling him a poker player saying he's been traveling the poker circuit and was planning to attend the LAPT stops.

Jean-Robert Bellande Busto and a Tale of Two Broke Blokes

In 2008, I covered the $1,500 Limit Holdem shootout and was the blogger for the final table where Jean Robert Bellande finished runner-up to Matt Graham. At the time of the event, there were a few people actually wondering how Bellande made the final table as they didn’t feel that he was that great of a player. It now appears that they may actually have been right as it looks as if Bellande is broke. Ok, if you follow his twitter at @ BrokeLivingJRB, you will see that he has a bankroll of $3,300.

Stick to what you know

In the last month I have had the opportunity to play a lot of poker.   I have played in cash games and tournaments.   But I have seen a trend, at least in my outcomes.   I have been killing it in the single table tourneys and doing not so well in the MTT.
