Field Testing the Chutzpah Monitor

Although it hasn’t been manufactured on a commercial scale as of yet, you may have heard of it through the grapevine; the revolutionary device called the Chutzpah Monitor. It is a device similar to a gaydar that measures the subject’s alpha brainwaves to determine his exact amount of chutzpah at any given moment. We know that the average amount of chutzpah has increased dramatically among poker players (and perhaps society at large) during the last few years, but attempts at gauging a reasonably accurate amount in individuals have not been successful. However, I have now put together a device that uses very specific electroencephalography that measures neural electron migrations at a molecular level and translates it into an accurate chutzpah reading.

Real Action at the EPT Berlin

1 7 March 2010 , By: Melissa Castello
Poker can be pretty boring from an outsiders point of view, but that's not the case today!! Some real action occurred at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in Berlin when six men stormed the hotel and robbed the PokerStars EPT of over €800,000 (that's almost the amount guaranteed to first place)! You can watch the what the robbery looked like from the tournament floor as the live coverage from PokerStars TV caught the action. [youtube]http://www. youtube. com/watch?v=QFn3XxRWcO0[/youtube] All poker media outlets have been reporting on it and my favorite so far is Pokernews turning CNN.

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.
