Neil Channing on Staking – Video Interview

I am sure a lot of you have heard about Neil Andrew Channing. He  is an professional poker player from London.
Neil became a truly well-known poker player when he won the Irish Poker Open in 2008. Channing has cashed 18 times at the WSOP, and his live career winnings accumulate to more than $1,900,000. Neils writes regularly for Bluff Europe Magazine. In 2009, he and fellow poker player Nick Persaud launched their own site, Black Belt Poker.

Neil is also known for staking a lot of players, like James Akenhead, for example. James has won cash in a lot of events in which Neil had percentages in the past few years, including a WSOP Main Event final table last year.

In the interview below, you can hear ‘the English Santa Claus of Poker’ talk about staking usually works, and the general concepts behind it. 

Worst Poker Ads Ever

Ub.net seems to get into a new advertising campaign in which they are trying to reach players with a funny, new approach. The reasons, however, remain unclear why they must have chosen this awfully executed awful commercial with that awful CG Dog featuring those awful poker pro look-alikes acting out those awful lines. Really, when I watch this ad, I feel sorry for the actors and everybody involved in this trainwreck, and I definitely don't want to register a UB account because of the commercial.

How about you? You think they are funny? Or do you know worse?
Please let me know in the comments section below.

Barney Frank on Jay Leno’s The Tonight Show

Congressman Barney Frank discussed online gambling and personal liberty on Jay Leno’s The Tonight Show. Topics of their conversation included the income to be made by taxing a regulated online gambling market, the ways to limit it to children, etc. Issues like lottery and marijuana were brought as examples and Frank’s arguments revolved around adults who are to be allowed to do whatever they like at home. It was an intelligent debate between Leno and Frank, I recommend watching this 4 minutes long session of the show.

Phil Galfond Analysing Durrrr Challenge 2

One of the central topics nowadays in the poker community, the Durrrr Challenge 2 has already offered a number of interesting hands, as we had hoped. These are the subjects of a video analysis from Phil ‘OMGClayAiken’ Galfond.

Galfond is, by the way, the only player durrrr excluded from participating in the challenge. He is among the top players on both FTP’s and PokerStars’ annual profit lists.

Jungleman is currently leading with a $692,400 profit after a little more than 6,800 hands from the 50,000 of the duel. I can’t wait to see how it goes for the next 43,000.

Watch Galfond’s analysis here. 

Interview with Fatima Moreira de Melo at the EPT Vilamoura

The EPT Vilamoura is slowly drawing to an end, with the final table currently being played.

So far, the event has been full of surprises, one of these was the participation of many-many famous athletes.
Here is Fatima Moreira de Melo, for example. Fatima is a world-famous Dutch field hockey player, who has also been playing poker for more than a year now. Unfortunately, Fatima didn't make it to the final table this time. Nevertheless, you can now see a video interview with her, where she answers questions posed by her fans.

Teddy Sheringham, famous English football (soccer) player got more lucky than Fatima, and is currently playing the final table.

Ivey Optimistic About WPT In Interview

Phil Ivey doesn't give interviews very often, so it is exceptional that Tatjana Pasalic caught him at the WPT London. Ivey talks about his feelings about the tournament and he feels confident that he has serious chances of winning it this year. When asked whether poker's popularity is about to drop or not, he also talks about the reputation of poker worldwide.

An interesting video to watch, I highly recommend it!

This Week In Poker With Kimberly Lansing and Phil Laak

In this episode of "This Week In Poker by WickedChops.com" guests include Kimberly Lansing, who talks about the WPT, Legends of poker and much more; Phil Laak, who gives a Skype interview, in which he talks about his horrible ATV quad accident (which I already wrote about) in which he broke 7 bones; and Jess Wellman, with some of the most important poker news. Finally, we have some comments on the recent Negreanu vs. Duke affair.

If you won't watch the whole 1:19 minutes of the video, I definitely suggest you watch the bit from 49:28 till 1:14, where Phil Laak talks about his accident, it is really worth watching.

Joe Cada in ‘The Hijack Seat’

In this latest episode of ‘The Hijack Seat’ (by PokerNews Daily), Bernard Lee interviews Joe Cada, last year’s WSOP Main Event champion.

Joe speaks about what it feels like to be back at the WSOP with all the expectations from other players and sponsors and how he has been doing this year.

Joe Cada grew up in Michigan, where he started playing online poker at 16. He soon became known as an online heads-up cash game master, but the real success for Joe came in 2009, when he managed to beat Phil Ivey and Darvin Moon among others at the WSOP Final Table. Holding only 1% of the chips at the table, Joe flattened the rest of the table and secured himself the precious bracelet.

From the interview, we can also learn which is Joe’s favorite NL hand, which was his most memorable hand at last year’s WSOP and which player he thinks is yet unknown, but will soon become a poker star.
