The Bicycle Casino has recently opened their new Event Center where they will host their various tournament series that they run through the year. I don't know how many of you play at the Bike in Los Angeles, but I have mixed feelings about this upgrade. On the one hand, the new center will allow for larger tournaments to be played without having to spread the players throughout the casino. I like this.

Nolan Dalla was recently asked to give his thoughts about who was the better player between Stu Ungar and Phil Ivey. Ultimately, Dalla stated that over the long haul, Ivey would have the advantage due to his ability to stay focused. However, if it was a one shot deal, such as the WSOP Main Event, he hinted that he thought Ungar would have the advantage. Dalla brought up a great point regarding the final table.

If you had the choice to make, would you rather play poker or have sex? Don't just give a knee jerk reaction, actually sit and think about it for a moment. Men, quit looking at the screen like I've fell and hit my head. Back in 2006, I was at the Orleans for the Orleans Open in a NL satellite with a couple of guys that had worked in Vegas since the "old days. " One of the guys was sharing with me that a certain "Young, attractive, skilled female poker pro" would rather play poker than have sex.
