  1. ‘Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the land poker players were playing, getting in one last hand. The bad-regs were grinding at the tables with care in hopes that some run good soon would be theirs. The locals were nestled, all snug in their seats, with visions of jackpots brought on by bad beats. Playing live on the strip, no PokerBros app. Is that Mike Postle with his phone in his lap? When out in the lobby, someone backed up a truck. I sprang from my seat to see what the f**k. There was Doug Polk celebrating a win, and Joey beside him, a shit-eating grin. Th
  2. In June, the poker world is consumed with results and stories coming out of the World Series of Poker.

Here are some of the biggest stories that made headlines in the month of June.

  3. Poker Summer Camp 2018 has come to a close. The 49th annual World Series of Poker is officially in the books and, as time passes, this year will be remembered for the wild one it was. Thousands of players flooded the halls of the Rio All Suites & Casino in search of their slice of the multi-million dollar prize pools, but also to have the time of their lives playing the game that they love. So, before too much time passes and players begin to look forward to their next great poker excursion let’s take a look at some of the most memorable moments from the summer that was WSOP 2018.
  4. The completion of the full second week of the 2018 World Series of Poker was a non-stop poker extravaganza. The summer series has reached full throttle as some of the biggest events on the schedule awarded huge sums of life-changing money. Social media surrounding the series had a few moments of sincerity as poker legend, Doyle Brunson, announced his retirement from tournament play. That said, poker Twitter’s trademark snark was in full form as grinders jumped into event after event, trying to capture gold. So if you are watching from afar, enjoy the view as here’s a little taste of life
  5. On Thursday, poker legend Doyle Brunson (pictured) Tweeted out some rather disappointing news about his health. From his Twitter handle, @texdolly, he notified the world, "Got my 3rd melanoma confirmed today. Early stages, should be simple operation. Fortunately, it's on my head and everybody knows I'm hardheaded." Always one to lighten the mood no matter what the circumstance, Brunson added, "Simple or not, this will be my 12th major operation. Gonna play poker now because I always heard you get lucky right before you die." Brunson's Tweets elicited plenty of response from poker pros al
  6. 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
  7. For many who take the game of poker seriously, they can point to another player who has had a profound effect on their game.

  9. [caption width="640"] Only three of the four top seeds are moving on to the WPT Champions Challenge Sweet 16.[/caption] Even though they've had little trouble this year, number one seeds don’t always breeze through the NCAA tournament. Upsets happen. It seems that the World Poker Tour Champions Challenge is no different. Carlos Mortensen, top seed in the Hearts Region, was beaten by poker hall of famer and eight seed Erik Seidel in the Round of 32. The other three top seeds, Gus Hansen, Anthony Zinno and Daniel Negreanu, all advanced to the Sweet 16. The Champions Challenge is a br
  10. The 2019 World Series of Poker is almost here. It's the 50th annual WSOP and there's a lot of anticipation of what's to come this summer. One player who always looks forward to the summer is Phil Hellmuth. He's the poker player with the most WSOP gold bracelets (15) and most WSOP cashes (134), plus it's 30 years since he won the 1989 WSOP Main Event. "I love it!" Hellmuth told PocketFives when asked how it feels to have the WSOP right around the corner once again. "It's 30 years since my win in the WSOP Main Event." In 1989, a 24-year-old Hellmuth shocked the gambling world when he defea

  13. "I'd love to be a poker player forever. I would love to do what Doyle Brunson did, obviously who wouldn't?" You may not recognize him now that he chopped off all of his hair, trimmed his bushy beard, and has a swollen black eye from a bike-riding adventure gone wrong, but Arlie Shaban is showing up everywhere in poker right now. The Big Brother Canada contestant turned Enterprise Rent-A-Car 9-5er has a new role as a Herculean. His rise has been fast and it doesn't look like he's slowing down anytime soon, especially now that Shaban has the likes of Jason Somerville, the Twitch Poker communi
  14. It wasn’t supposed to end like this. Nobody even expected him to play. Doyle Brunson’s appearance in the $10,000 No Limit Deuce to Seven event at the 2018 World Series of Poker came as a surprise to anybody who has followed poker over the last few years. Once the face of the franchise, Brunson first stopped playing the WSOP back in 2013, citing the long hours of play as the main reason. He much preferred the high stakes cash game action at the Bellagio where could come and go as he pleased. He teased coming back in 2017, but nobody, absolutely nobody, thought they’d see him at all this year

  19. Doyle Brunson was firmly in the spotlight today at the 2018 World Series of Poker, but in the end the ‘Godfather of Poker’ couldn’t take down his 11th bracelet in what we now know will be the legend’s last ever tournament.
