140 characters is not a lot, but some of the poker players manage to be very funny in such a short message, it seems. The 6th Annual BLUFF Magazine Reader’s Choice Awards presented the top 5 funniest poker twitters recently. If you are in for some fun, and I know you are, here's the list with 1-1 quote from the person, just so can get a feel for what is going on about them.

Why is it ok for people to applaud when the plane lands but everyone gives me a look when I do it on the shuttle bus?

Joke of the Week - Phil Hellmuth and his Mobile Poker Game

It is quite well-known that Phil Hellmuth likes to show off and be in the spotlight. Once a legendary poker player, Hellmuth only gets on the news because of some humongously stupid act these days. This time, he is trying to market his brand new High Stakes Hold'em game with a quite amateur video and an improvised rap performance. This might sound funny at first, but it is in fact totally awkward.

You can view the ad below, but be warned: you will never get back the time you waste by watching this! :) 

The Micros - Comedy by Krantz and JimmyLegs

You must all be familiar with John 'JimmyLegs' Wray, who's an animator genius. He has done many awesome videos so far, but now he seems to have started his own show in cooperation with Jay 'KRANTZ' Rosenkrantz, The Micros.

It's about 3 micro stakes players, who "after months of frustration, finally have a shot to break into the big leagues." Check it out, it's fun. If you like it, you can subscribe to the show's YouTube channel.

Hellmuth Shows His Beer to Bill Clinton

After some poker fun, here's some more. In his latest CardPlayer blog post, Phil Hellmuth, besides many interesting stuff, talks about his meeting with Bill Clinton this August. As it turns out, Phil was invited to Bill Clinton's Charity event in Lexington, Kentucky:

"We would spend part of the day at the Lexington Hearing Center with Bill Clinton (and) then head off to Clinton's charity event..."
"My wife and I were honored to sit right next to Bill (at) the Gala dinner!"

The always nice UB sponsored pro also showed a beer can with his face on it to the ex-president after his speech. Nice touch, Phil! Here's a picture of the great event:

Poker Pros as Video Game Characters

2+2 provides room for talents to exercise their creativity (and knowledge of Photoshop) from time to time – mostly at the expense of poker pros.  After providing quite a number of humorous pictures of Viktor Blom, now it was time for the poker elite to became integral parts of the video game universe.

Here is a collection of the funniest ones:


PlusEV – A comic not to pass by

Bobby Crosby is an internationally recognized comic creator, the writer of the PlusEV comics, one of the most popular poker-related comic strips of all times. It introduces us to the life of an American family, in which the father spends most of his time playing poker.

Soon enough, all members of the family develop some kind of a relationship with both live and online poker, and find themselves in all kinds of funny situations.

It is a must-see for all poker fans!

Here are two episodes to get you in the mood:



Isilduritos - Viktor Blom Photoshop Thread

I already had a post like this in May, but it is so much fun, I cannot leave this out. There is a 2+2 forum thread called 'Blom photoshop potential'. In it, a user called 'ShortstackCat' posted 3 pictures of Viktor Blom at the poker table, encouraging fellow users to exploit and 'remix' the photos using Photoshop. The last compilation featuring Phil Ivey was hilarous, this one is also really good, I selected a few for you below:

The Chris Olaafson Story - Part Two

Last week, we saw the start of a series of videos by Chris Olaafson, claimed (by himself) to be the best poker player in the world. The humorous video featured Daniel Negreanu, Tiffany Michelle and Arnaud Mattern, all praising Chris, calling him the God of Poker and other honorable titles.

The Chris Olaafson Story goes on, the second part of the series was made public yesterday, and you now have the opportunity to watch it below.

In this part, Chris (once again, with the help of several poker celebrities) tries to convince the audience that he is truly the best poker player in the whole wide world, and that the training program he offers will unveil tactics and strategies never seen or heard of before, to make the average player a poker monster.

The third video, appearing on the 30th August, will allegedly already contain the first lesson, and I, together with all the poker players out there, am eagerly waiting for it. Not only because of the knowledge that Chris claims to possess, but also out of curiosity, whether the next part will contain at least one sentence to be taken seriously.
