Who is Archie Karas?

Dip into the subject of the greatest poker players of all time and you won’t find Archie Karas……at least not right away. He’s never won any major poker tournaments, and he doesn’t have the young, high stakes poker swag that people like Tom Dwan and Patrik Antonius have. No Karas is simply a gambler who’s […]

Jack Link’s Beef Jerky to Continue Sponsoring the WSOP

Jack Link’s Beef Jerky has been a part of poker for the last two years, and it appears as if it will be even longer after they renewed their deal to sponsor the World Series of Poker through 2012. Jack Link’s will dominate the advertising during the tournament series on ESPN as well as advertising […]

Nick Schulman on World of Jenks TV Show

I must admit that when I first saw previews for the “World of Jenks” on TV, it wasn’t the most appealing show to me. Great….another documentary show by some lucky punk who got a deal right out of film school. But one episode caught my attention and made me actually sit down to watch the […]

Brunson Says Ivey is Too Young for Poker Hall of Fame

Phil Ivey seems to be at the top of the 2010 Poker Hall of Fame list heading into the final vote. Ivey has been more successful than of the other players, and is even said to be the greatest poker player on the globe. His major accomplishments are: – An L.A. Poker Classic title in […]

“POTTERPOKER” earns Online Record $2.28 Million Payout

Online poker tournament payouts have been steadily increasing over the last few years with some of the biggest ones topping the $1 million mark. In fact, Yevgeniy Timoshenko earned the largest payout ever at $1.715 million last year in the 2009 PokerStars WCOOP Main Event. So it’s no surprise that the WCOOP Main Event was […]

Crazy $250,000 Buy-in Tournament

I thought that some of the WPT and WSOP events were getting a little crazy by charging $25,000 and $50,000 buy-ins. Obviously there are still interested parties since people buy into these events, but I think they’re only created for poker’s elite. I guess I should have held my thoughts though after seeing the $250,000 […]

Daniel Negreanu goes off on Annie Duke

It’s no secret among poker insiders that Annie Duke isn’t exactly one of the most liked players (or rather personalities since she doesn’t do much playing anymore). Duke has always been known as somewhat cold, and her boasting of being the world’s best female poker player (even though she isn’t really) hasn’t sat well with […]

Shannon Elizabeth Finally finds a Home

In the world of sponsored poker players, actress Shannon Elizabeth is something like an NBA journeyman……she has bounced around numerous sites without any luck in finding a permanent home. And this is no doubt strange considering the fact that she’s had a few solid poker tournament finishes along with her appearances in American Pie, Scary […]

Cross Dressers ruin Ladies WSOP Event

Even though times have changed since the 80’s and 90’s, there still aren’t many female poker players who play in major tournaments. That’s why major poker organizations such as the WSOP have taken steps to ensure that there are ladies-only events where only women are supposed to play. And this has worked for both the […]

Simon Watt stops Tom Dwan from receiving First Bracelet

It seems a little crazy when you think about how much Tom Dwan has been able to earn from playing online poker this year. I mean, the guy usually plays for pots that are way bigger than most WSOP buy-ins so you’d think he would have a bracelet by now. But he is still in […]
