  1. For 1,000 hours over 100 consecutive days, Lukas 'RobinPoker' Robinson streamed online poker on Twitch. Think about that for a moment. That’s ten hours a day glued to your computer. Ten hours a day spent inside. Ten hours a day where your only respite from being on camera is the hourly five-minute bathroom breaks. Not only did he complete the challenge, Robinson smashed it in ways he couldn’t have imagined when he first conceived the idea. Now he’s slowly adjusting back to life outside of his self-imposed bubble. “I needed some time to chill when it was over as I was wrecked, but I’m fee
  2. You probably think Darth Vader says “Luke, I am your father”. He doesn’t. You probably think Queen's ‘We are the Champions’ ends with an emphatic “...of the WORLD!”. It doesn’t. And you probably think that Chris 'Moorman1' Moorman - a fixture in every ‘greatest online tournament player ever’ debate - has won at least one PokerStars Championship of Online Poker title during a career that’s seen him win 30 PocketFives Triple Crowns (the most ever), top the global rankings 13 times (often for months at a time), and rack up $18.6 million in cashes (fifth all-time). He hadn’t...until April.
  3. When four heads-up poker specialists took on the AI program Libratus - a poker supercomputer built by Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh - in January 2017, the bot decimated its opponents, producing an exceptionally high win rate equivalent to 14.7 big blinds per 100 hands. "I felt like I was playing against someone who was cheating. Like it could see my cards,” said one of the challengers, Dong Kim, when the match was over. “I’m not accusing it of cheating. It was just that good." What you won’t have read about is the successor to Libratus - a new, more advanced poker supercomputer n
  4. In early 2019, having become one of the most respected heads-up No Limit Hold’em players in the world across a decade of high stakes online crushing, Kevin Rabichow decided to switch gears and commit his time and energy to live tournaments. Six months later, he finished second in the partypoker Millions Montreal $10K for $484,460. “It was kind of surreal,” Rabichow said from his home in Toronto. “The speed at which I went from being lukewarm on travelling for tournaments to having my phone blowing up with 200 friends all railing me, it was cool. And it was totally foreign to me.” Prior t
  5. For every fantastic poker movie of the past 25 years (Rounders, Mississippi Grind), there’s been another which missed the mark. But the poker world (for better and for worse) isn’t lacking in incredible storylines, interesting characters, and dramatic tension. From epic biopics and romantic melodramas to buddy comedies and political thrillers, the poker world should be a screenwriter’s goldmine. Imagine cast sheets packed with poker’s biggest names (Doyle Brunson, Phil Ivey, Stu Ungar) and the A-list Hollywood stars who would portray them. Here are five of the best real-life poker plot l
  6. Forget the schoolyard trash talk and cheat sheet squabbles for a hot minute, and let’s focus on the poker. Doug Polk and Daniel Negreanu will be going head to head in a knock-down drag-out war commencing on November 1, with millions on the line and at least one ego cruising for a bruising. As a former Heads-Up No Limit Hold’em specialist, Polk enters the $200/$400 ring as the clear favorite. But this battle isn’t Daniel vs Goliath. It’s Goliath vs Goliath 2.0. The fan favorite of the past 20 years against the fan favorite for a new generation. They truly hate each other and are out for b

[caption width="640"] Ludovic ‘Ludovi333’ Geilich-Jonsen broke into the top 10 of the PocketFives rankings earlier this month (PokerStars photo)[/caption] There are quite a few fun-loving characters on the European poker scene, but few are as universally liked as Scotland’s Ludovic ‘Ludovi333’ Geilich-Jonsen. His live poker resume boasts UK & Ireland Poker Tour and Wynn Classic wins, European Poker Tour and World Series of Poker final tables, not to mention more than $1.3 million in earnings.

[caption width="640"] Troy ‘teckidtq’ Quenneville and his girlfriend Paulina[/caption] Back in November 2016, when Canadian Troy ‘teckidtq’ Quenneville turned up to play some live poker at the World Poker Tour partypoker Million festival in Punta Cana, the regs probably didn’t think anything of him. After all, he had just two live cashes to his name, combined to the tune of $559. But Troy was something of a Trojan horse. He ended up winning $220K for a runner-up finish in the $5K World Poker Tour main event, followed by victory in the $2,500 partypoker Million for $400,000. This Trojan

  24. ‘The luck of the Irish’ is a saying that comes with a certain amount of ridicule. Created in the late 19th century, when many of the most successful gold miners in America were Irish, it suggests that it was pure luck, rather than brains and skill, that led the Irish to success. For that reason, we would never use that saying when talking about online poker. Instead, through their brains and skill, many Irish poker players have been mining their fortunes online for years. Here are the top 10 Irish players in the world right now. 10. Conor ‘ccoonnoorr’ O’Driscoll In at numb
