Right after accusations flew from all over social media channels regarding a poker player cheating at a live cash game streamed at the Stones Gambling Hall in Citrus Heights, California, Joey Ingram took it upon himself to create an investigative video that put Mike Postle in the hot seat.
A poker tournament scheduled on Veterans Day in the United States (November 11, Sunday) in Gardena, California has been won by an unforeseen fellow. What’s intriguingly wonderful was that this fellow made an astonishing move – he donated all his wins to help support a noble cause.
Robert ‘Rob’ Reid is 52 years old and works as General Manager of two Gardena-based casinos called Hustler and Lucky Lady. Most of his time is spent behind the scenes of poker/casino tournaments than in front, but this time he figured he’d join in on the fun and entered the tournament. He never expected to win it in the end!

The American poker pro Joe Sebok, 35, has almost $2 million in live tournament earnings (no major title) and was well liked for several years when he was known more as Barry Greenstein's stepson than a poker pro.
It has been very quiet from Sebok in the past year or so and the question is if he ever will win a major tournament title - because, according to a recent interview, he spent last year at Vinify, a premium custom crush winery in Santa Rosa, California, where he worked really hard and lost almost 17 pounds during the last 3-month harvest.
A lot of people were surprised when they read in Doyle Brunson's latest blog that he's considering to hit the road and move from Las Vegas to California. What surprised people even more was that the reason Doyle is considering to move is because of poker. Yes, Doyle thinks that there aren't enough high-limit games to suit him.
"Las Vegas is becoming more and more a not very desirable place for a poker pro to live. There are simply isn't very many high limit games anywhere. What's with the economy, the world wide tournaments, and the internet poker, the outlook for live cash games are bleak. Poker is on the verge of making a very significant change and in my opinion very bad change. I'm considering moving to California; at least there are a few mid level games that are played regularly", writes Doyle Brunson in his blog.
