Play Online Poker, It's Safer - Banned Commercial

You are not going to believe this. PokerStars (that's right, the largest poker site in the world) released this commercial recently. Almost instantly they removed it, but it was already too late. It's very successful at YouTube at the moment, PokerStars tries to remove all of the uploads, but we all know it's futile. This commercial is not for the faint hearted, watch with care. (If the video is deleted, just search for "Banned PokerStars Commercial").

The Annie Duke Show Kicked Off

Annie Duke has started her new show with the aforementioned title. You can watch the first, 59 minutes long episode here.

The show utilizes a simple, black backdrop before which Duke and her guests appear and talk. Whether this is gloomy or if Duke needs that kind of atmosphere to create tension, I leave to you to decide. At any rate, I, too, would be interested in an appearance by Daniel Negreanu on the show. 

This Week in Poker - Sexton in the Studio

In the recent This Week in Poker Jess Wellman gives some updates on the current poker news, and WSOP's last winner, WPT's presenter Mike Sexton joins the guys in the studio.

Tony G and Viffer playing Texas Switch'em on The Big Game

Tony G was always known for his style, trash talks and crazy decisions, he again did something amazing. In this week's PokerStars The Big Game he played heads-up against David 'Viffer' Peat, when he decided it would be a good idea to switch one hole card with him. Viffer agreed.

This is what happened. Tony G was dealt a K-7, Peat an A-7. Tony G raised to $1,200, Viffer called that. This is when Mr. Tony G asked him whether he wants to switch a hole card. Of course he liked the idea. The other players very very suprised to see such a stunt, Daniel Negreanu said "What the hell??" while Joe Hachem was asking whether this kind of play is legal.

Chris Moneymaker Interview at WSOP 2010

PokerNewsDaily made an interview with Chris Moneymaker at the 2010 WSOP Main Event. Moneymaker is a legend, and a true hero of his era, he, the Tennessee accountant who managed to win the 2003 WSOP Main Event has inspired many people to get to know and get to love poker (also known as the 'Moneymaker Effect').

In the interview he talks about how his game is going at the tables, and we can get a sneek peek on his Day 1 strategy. He also talks about the latest addition to the Team PokerStars Pro line, and talks about the 'intimate' relationship between the Pros.

His motto now is: "Don't do anything stupid". This is an advice to be kept in my opinion.
You can watch the interview following this link or clicking on the picture above.

Awesome New PokerStars Ad

You might notice the new PokerStars ad that have been airing on TV, but if you have not, you can now watch it here! The half-a-minute video portrays a hand through the eyes of Daniel Negreanu, Chris Moneymaker, Joe Cada and Jason Mercier. Nothing fancy technical stuff, just the feeling of a hand played at PokerStars. Check it out, I think it's brilliant.

Phil Hellmuth's Pokerface at WSOPE

Phil Hellmuth is known for his love of big entrances, and then his bad play which leads him to his early elimination. He did exactly to same, one might say according to plan, at the WSOPE Main Event as well. He rode in on a classic double-decker bus accompanied by a brass band, who started to play Lady Gaga's Pokerface, while 11 girls dressed as Gaga danced and sang. This is when Hellmuth entered the scene and entered the casino with the all-singing all-dancing crowd.

At the tables he performed pretty poorly, he soon lost a lot of his chips and at an all-in he got his 99's beat by Leo Margets' AA overpair.

Here's the video, enjoy!

PokerStars Big Game – Best of Part 2

FOX TV has aired the second “Best of” instalment of the PokerStars high stakes show The Big Game. The clash between the three loose cannons (Troy Howard, Aaron Jensen and Andre Capella) from the past weeks with some of the biggest names of poker (like Daniel Negreanu, Doyle Brunson, Tony G, Phil Hellmuth and Barry Greenstein) provided quite a number of memorable moments; these are revisited here.

Episode 9: 

Tom 'durrrr' Dwan at PartyPoker World Open, London

Tom 'durrrr' Dwan was interviewed by Tatjana, PartyPoker's reporter yesterday after he got busted at the PartyPoker World Open in London. He talks about the durrrr challange in general, because not everybody might have heard about it yet, and about his biggest opponent at the moment, jungleman12.

If you don't know who that is, you can watch an interview with him here, and understand why durrrr mentions the 20-year-old high stakes pro instead of Gus Hansen and Patrik Antonius for example.

Jungleman12 Interview –The Beginnings, the Durrrr Challenge and More

PokerStatic has made a quite long video interview with Daniel ’jungleman12’ Cates, in which he recalls the beginning of his career, talks about the currently ongoing durrrr challenge and poker in general.

Jungleman12 is definitely one of the most frequently mentioned names in the poker world these days, mainly because of the durrrr challenge, in which he is leading by $692,000 at this point, and also because of his very young age and almost miraculous poker career.

Aging only 20, Daniel Cates started getting into online poker only two years ago, and managed to move from NLHE heads-up limits of $0.25/$0.50 to $25/$50 in as little as 10 months time. Although he admits that his bankroll was not at all suitable for these stakes at that time (he only had around 40 buy-ins), Cates, with a very aggressive bankroll management, managed to pile up a nice sum of money, even including a few setbacks, like losing $500K to Isildur1 in only 1 day.

In 2010, his profits exceed $2.2 million so far, with which he takes place 3 on this year’s profit leaderboard, with only Phil Ivey and Tom Dwan having accumulated more in 2010. 

The Era of Teenage Poker Players

More and more students decide to try and make a living out of poker in the United States.

Although they are not old enough to enter a casino, nothing prevents them from playing online poker. This phenomenon has spread so widely that ABC News has also recently dealt with it in their Nightline news programme, in which they interviewed last year’s WSOP ME winner Joe Cada and teenage poker player Blaine Brount.
