On the clock: Andre Akkari, the great delegator

This is a story of delegation and going to the dogs. Andre Akkari, the face of poker in the poker-crazed Brazil, has 28 Golden Retrievers. If you've ever owned one dog and know what it takes to manage it, multiply that by 28. Now try to figure out if you have enough time to decide whether to slow pl...more

I'm writing in the midst of playing this year's WCOOP. It's been a grind, with many long days at the computer.The structures for most of the WCOOP events are so deep it makes the series unlike any other as far as online poker is concerned.

George Danzer, Player of the Year, thanks you

It took George Danzer 31 years of living, half a lifetime of poker playing, and many, many tries before he won his first World Series of Poker bracelet. It took him a couple of weeks to win a second one. It took him just a few more months to win a third. It has, to say the least, been a good year. N...more
