Annie and Jeffrey 430x286
I just spent the last few minutes reading Annie Duke's speech that she gave at the 2011 Women In Poker Hall of Fame induction ceremony. I must say that I was thoroughly impressed by her words. Annie addressed a topic that some of us touched on a few weeks ago and that is the lack of female participation at the WSOP this year. Only 3% of the field was comprised of women.

Carlos Mortensen Jumped Ship - So Why Not Others?

Carlos Mortensen is no longer a Full Tilt Pro per a tweet from his agent. Excuse me while I fake being shocked. Does it really make any sense at all for any of the Full Tilt Pros, other than those with an actual stake in the company, to hold onto their "sponsorship?" As the clock tick, tick, ticks away, it looks less and less likely that they or any of us are going to be paid. At some point, loyalty must be thrown out of the window.

I wrote an editorial for the site[http://www. pokerjunkie. com/pokerjunkie-editorial-more-girls-more-dunst-worst-of-wpt-changes] earlier in the week about the changes for upcoming season of the World Poker Tour.   In it, I wrote how I wasn't a fan of Tony Dunst and that the Royal Flush Girls was another concept I wasn't that fond of.

Doyle Enjoying Poker 200x300
Doyle Brunson made a comment earlier today that he was playing with a couple of professional poker players who say they no longer enjoy the game and that it's all about the money for them. He then proceeded to tell them to seek another profession. Sadly, this seems to be a growing trend among many professionals and wannabe poker professionals. Somewhere along the line in the quest for trying to become rich and famous, they have stopped enjoying the game of poker[[sitetree_link,id=743]].
