Welcome mobsters, if you are reading this blog for the very first time, I thank you for your initial interest. I think that if you give it a little time, you will find something that will peak your interest.
I am a semi-pro poker player and an author. I am currently working on several projects for publication, and will be discussing them on occasion in this blog. If you are a fan then I warn you, from time to time there will be spoiler book ideas discussed.

Sebastian Pauli, a 25-year-old pro from Germany, brought the heaviest bag of chips to the final table and remained out front until all his opponents had hit the rail, including poker superstars Kevin MacPhee and Jake Cody.
Mike Leah entered the third and final day of the WSOP APAC High Roller with more than half of the chip in play (2,576,000). The fact is that only one of his opponents, David Yan, had a stack of more than 1 million chips amongs the 6 finalists. After Brian Roberts, Sam Khouiss, 2012 WSOP Main Event winner Jonathan Duhamel and 2012 WSOP Main Event runner up Jesse Sylvia had hit the rail, the two big stacks played heads-up for the title.
Just as expected it didn't take long for 36 players to become two tables of 16 players on Day 4 of the EPT London Main Event. Once again the tournament had a new chip leader when Day 4 concluded: Sebastian Pauli, Germany, with 2.7 million chips.
It took about 10 hours of intensive play on Day 4 until 18 players became a final table of six. Jack Salter, who is best known for his victory at the 2014 Aussie Millions Poker Championship, will lead the way into the final table with 3,255,000 chips - or about 1 million more than his closest competitior, Scott Davies, with 2,210,000.
Are you one of those who don't believe that the cards are randomly dealt when playing online poker? Or/and maybe you are just a bit curious how a virtual deck is shuffled? As for the world's largest poker site, you can stop wondering as they have released a video where the entire process is explained.
36 of 127 players survived the third day of play of the EPT London Main Event. For the third day in a row the tournament had a new chip leader, Mikhail Petrov, when the tournament director called it a day.
