Tags: Bobby Baldwin, MGM Resorts, Poker Hall of Fame
Posted on Monday, October 08, 2018 by "T".

Bobby Baldwin, who became the 1978 WSOP Main Event champion, is going to leave his post as one of the executives for MGM Resorts International sometime "later this year."

Mike Sexton writes that he thinks poker should have a dress code just like in any sport.

Also, he thinks that poker players should be more responsible and on time for interviews and tournaments, full fill all media requests, sign autographs and take pictures with fans when asked etc. Sexton thinks that all these things are extremely important for the future of poker.

Phil Hellmuth is getting closer to his first WPT Title!

Tags: final table, phil hellmuth, poker hall of fame, ulimate bet, wpt
Posted on Friday, March 12, 2010 by "T".

Phil Hellmuth has won and achieved almost everything a poker player can dream of. Just listen to this. Phil has won 11 WSOP bracelets, reached the final table in many major poker tournaments, he has interests and is the face for one of the worlds most popular poker sites, Ulimate Bet. And last but not least, he was inducted into the Poker Hall of Fame 3 years ago.

So what is left to achieve? Well, he has never won a WPT tournament and now he has a great chance to do so as he has made it to the final table of WPT Bay 101 Shooting Star together with 6 other players. Phil will bring 1,150,000 chips to the final table today, and only 2 players have accumulated more chips than him, Andy Seth (1,550,000) and Mclean Karr (1,225,000). However, Phil is the one with most routine and skill of the 7 remaining players. My money is on him!

Phil Hellmuth, 45, has won millions of dollars and 11 WSOP bracelets through his career so far. He was inducted into the Poker Hall of Fame back in 2007 which confirms what a successful player he is. However, in the past few years - things have not gone Phil's way at the poker table, and every time we hear about him lately - it's usually about him crying out load after a "bad beat". According to Daniel Negreunu, Phil must wake up and realize that poker has changed and that one must adjust to how its being played these days.

Doyle Brunson critical of today's poker pros

Tags: doyle brunson, poker hall of fame, poker legends
Posted on Tuesday, December 01, 2009 by "T".

It seems like Doyle Brunson has no plans to retire from poker as he continue playing at the highest stakes and contributing to the game in many different ways. One of the ways Doyle Brunson is still contributing to the scene is through his blog where anyone can follow his daily life and poker experiences. In his latest blog post one can read some thoughts of his regarding the quality of today's PROS compared to old ones.


"Are today's players better than the old timers? Nah, different but not better. The truth is some of these "pros" play so bad it's hard to lose."

Doyle also writes that he thinks he's lucky to still be able to play so well against today's PRO's even though he thinks that many PRO's including himself tend to lose at least part of their game after reaching the age of 50.

"Time marches on. That's something every poker player has to be aware of. I try to monitor my play regularly because of my age. I'm lucky to still be hanging in there but as I've always said, poker players tend to lose at least part of their game after reaching the age of 50. Even though I won 16 straight in TV cash games, I seem to have reverted to a defensive style of play that I'm not comfortable with. Even though the way your opponent plays dictates the way you play, I've found myself not following my instincts as I've always done."

WSOP - Main Event: This is how much Phil Ivey gets if he wins

Tags: full tilt, main event, november nine, phil ivey, poker hall of fame, wsop
Posted on Thursday, August 06, 2009 by "K".

Phil Ivey, is probably the best poker player in the world at cash games and tournaments since a few years back. He has won millions of dollars live, online and from different tournaments. He's greatest achievements during his whole poker career however, has to be that he has won 7 WSOP bracelets. It also thanks to his huge success in WSOP that he's now one of the top candidates to get voted in to "Poker Hall Of Fame".

At the moment, Phil Ivey, is one of the 9 players that will play the WSOP main event final table in November this year. On the final table, he has the chance to get another WSOP bracelet and also to win over 20 million dollars. This huge amount of money, according to an article on a poker site. This is how the author of this article came to this conclusion.

1st prize = $8,5 million + $10 million extra from Full Tilt (assuming that Full Tilt pros have the same deal as satellite qualifiers) + $2 million for the side bet he placed with Andy Bloch ($20,000 to 99,1 times the money when around 2400 players still were in the tournament) + $1 million from Tom Dwan. 

The total winnings according to this calculation would therefore be $21,5 million dollars. But who knows? Maybe Phil placed more than 2 side bets on himself to win the main event?

Posted on Wednesday, August 05, 2009 by "T".

In 1979, Benny Binion, the owner of the Horseshoe Casino, created the Poker Hall Of Fame to preserve the names and legacies of the world's greatest poker players. He also was the man behind the first ever World Series of Poker (1970), and the first one to organize high stakes games where the public could watch. Anyhow, Harrah's Entertainment took over the right for WSOP in 2004, and also the ownership of the Poker Hall of Fame. Today the Poker Hall of Fame is handled directly by the WSOP crew. Up till now, 37 people have been inducted into the Poker Hall of Fame. Only 15 of those people are still living.
