Conquering Flaws

As I mentioned in my last installment that low stakes poker can be exceedingly frustrating, - so much though - that I began to buy in to the biggest game that I could find with only one minimum buy-in. If in fact I had $200 I bought into a $20-$40 game where I only had 10 small and 5 big bets. No matter, it is just about the quality of cards coming into the pot - and players not staying for the duration of the hand - that I made this move. The first time that I played $20- $40 I actually played the hand badly and probably should not have even been in the hand.

<font color=darkred>A Call to Action</font> - Defend Online Poker

There is an evil abroad in our land. This evil is a conspiracy of a minority of elected U.S. representatives who wish to steal our liberty, the liberty to play poker on the internet. This small group of self-righteous, elected representatives, including Leach,Goodlatte and Ryan, among others, have conspired to pass a bill that will outlaw internet gambling, including poker.

High-limit cash game player Victor Perches Wins His First WSOP Gold Bracelet

Las Vegas, NV - Victoriano Perches came to this country as many good people do - to seek a better life. The native of Chihuahua, Mexico arrived in the United States 25 years ago and began working inside a food processing plant in Oregon. He eventually moved to Las Vegas and started playing in local poker games for fun. Along the way, Perches discovered he had a hidden talent for the game and progressively started playing for higher-stakes. He now plays regularly in big cash games - frequently as high as $200-400 limit.

James Richburg Wins Razz World Series of Poker Championship

Fifteen years after making his first WSOP final table appearance, Californian defeats Carlos Mortensen in heads-up play

Las Vegas, NV - Seven-Card Razz has developed a bad reputation. It's the proverbial step-child of poker games. While the rest of the poker world is playing Texas Hold'em, Razz is the quirky card game that pops up every now and then at a few major poker tournaments. The game attracts an admittedly older and more traditional crowd.

21-year old college student Jeff Madsen sets World Series of Poker record unlikely to ever be broken

Las Vegas, NV - The unthinkable happened on July 22, 2006 when 21-year-old Jeff Madsen won his second gold bracelet within a week. Even more remarkable is the fact that Madsen turned "21" just six weeks ago. This was Madsen's third final table at this year's World Series of Poker, presented by Milwaukee's Best Light. He is one of only two players to hold such a distinction. Madsen now has two firsts and one third-place finish on his WSOP resume.

Three Europeans dominate WSOP event 27 no-limit hold'em final table

Las Vegas, NV - Many people might be surprised to learn that Scandinavia is one of poker's hottest new markets. Perhaps it's the cold dark winters. Perhaps it's the relatively high income and education levels. Or, perhaps it's the high-tech sophistication of the region. Scandinavians own more personal computers and cell phones, per capita, than any other population group. Not surprisingly, Swedes, Fins, Danes, and Norwegians also play more online poker than any other region.

Spectator 1: Who's left?
Spectator 2: I see Cyndy Violette up there.
Spectator 1: Who else?
Spectator 2: There's Sean "Sheik" Sheikhan.
Spectator 1: What about the other guy?
Spectator 2: I don't know. He's just some other guy.
