Annie Duke Wins 262x300
Nominations for the Women in Poker Hall of Fame[http://womenspokerhalloffame. com/wiphof/nominations/] are now being accepted and I have once again filled out my nomination for this year's class. Anyone that knows me or has followed my blogs should not be surprised at one of my nominations and anyone that knows my appreciation for poker's past should not be surprised of my other nomination. My first nomination was for Annie Duke.

Amarillo Slim 430x286
On Sunday, the poker world lost one of its legendary road gamblers as Amarillo Slim passed away at the age of 83. I didn't know Slim and only got to cover him one time, but the one time I did get to cover him at the 2008 WSOP ended up producing a story that was classic Slim. Most of you know which company I worked with in 2008 covering the event. One of our field reporters, Neal, was easily the tallest guy on our field reporter staff.

Davidi Kitai 430x286
Davidi Kitai completed poker's "Triple Crown" on Sunday with his win in the European Poker Tour Berlin Main Event this past weekend. His win prompted some discussion between ESPN's Andrew Feldman[https://twitter. com/#!/ESPN_Poker] and others as to whether his Triple Crown win is legit since his WPT victory was a WPT Invitational that is primarily charity based. I personally agree with Feldman that an invitational win should not seem to count, but there are numerous examples of events being given more weight than they should.

Do Pro Players Realize What It Means to Be Professional?

Professionals 352x300
WPT Host and Hall of Famer Mike Sexton recently posted a blog entitled *Poker Pros - Wake Up and Smell the Coffee!* If you haven't read it yet, quit reading this blog, read his, and come back and finish this one. I've been fortunate enough to play with Mike on a couple of occasions in Vegas and he quickly earned my respect for his professionalism. Mike's sentiments almost echo mine in regards to how poker players should act when they are playing the game and how they should act as professionals. Some of you are going to read his blog, and this one, and still say to yourself that "poker players are not that bad.

A couple of weeks back, I discovered that AsianSpa[https://twitter. com/#!/AsianSpa], a guy I've grown rather fond of following on twitter, had picked up a blog on that other poker related site who happens to deal in news. I checked out his blog expecting him to call out chumps and give his true opinions on things and found.
