An Absolutely Great Work Study Program
The College Challenge at Absolute Poker is back. If you are currently enrolled as a student in the United States, you could win your share of $30,000 in prizes, or with the cost of college these days, the equivalent of your books for one semester.
Beginning October 4 through November 29, there are three daily qualifying tournaments. The top nine finishers of the three daily tournaments will be entered into a freeroll the next day. The top 15 of that freeroll win entry into the Main Event qualifier that happens once a week. The top six players of the online Main Event will then be flown to Los Angeles for a live final table that will be streamed online by Bluff Magazine. The winner of the live tournament will take home $10,000 for tuition.
“This tournament is a fun and easy way for college students to compete for an alternative way to pay for tuition, and we believe that this program is one of the best ways to create real added value for college students,” said Absolute Pro, Matt Vengrin.

Thankfully (or not), he takes us to the tournament room and proceeds to follow a hand that a certain poker babe probably would have called the clock on.
A Shady Lawyer?
Well, we can't say we haven't heard "shady lawyer" a couple of times. Pokerati.com has done some digging on Cyrus Sanai, the Hollywood lawyer who filed the lawsuit against Full Tilt for his client, Lary Kennedy. The Los Angeles legal community doesn't have many nice things to say about Sanai, who has been practicing law in California for 19 years with no official "uh-oh's" on his legal record. The general consensus of the legal community, it seems, doesn't quite understand how Sanai is still practicing law. Sanai even chimes in on the comments section to give his point of view, leaving us wondering whether he be prepping for a trial instead of spending his day on the Internet.
