High Stakes Poker: British Invasion
British Invasion? We may have gotten a little ahead of ourselves there. How about visit, yes, that's better. Uk.PokerNews.com has reported that Andrew Feldman will be the first British poker player to ever be on "High Stakes Poker."
"Apparently I was recommended to the producer by none other than Tom 'Durrrr' Dwan. Maybe he thinks I'm good value, maybe he thinks I'll give action…I hope it's the latter. Last month I played the "Full Tilt Million Dollar Cash Game," but this is going to be just as tough if not tougher!"
HSP will film in November and begin airing in February - with a yet to be named new co-host for Mr. Gabe Kaplan.

Barry Shulman on Cover of Bluff Europe?
No, Hell hasn't frozen over. Sometimes, recognition is due even when it might pain you, as "Bluff Europe" Editor Philip Conneller found out recently. Barry Shulman, CEO of Card Player and WSOPE winner is on the cover of this month's issue of "Bluff Europe."
"We, too, seem to have lost it, as Bluff’s very own mortal enemy appears on the front cover this month. If you’d told me a couple of years ago that Barry Shulman, CEO of Card Player, would one day grace our cover, I’d have suspected you of being ripped to the tits on goofballs. But Barry won the WSOPE and so he’s earned the kudos. Good on him, we say," said Conneller.
Annette Obrestad: 21 and Playing Poker in the US
We tried to tell you a while back that Annette Obrestad would be in Vegas filming "Poker After Dark," but maybe you just couldn't catch on to our subtle hint.
In case you were wondering, she is filming "Poker After Dark" today. While this isn't her first time playing legally in the U.S., she went out with a few of us last weekend and decided a slow roll was the way to go against PokerNews Editor-in-Chief Matthew Parvis (read about it here) — her PAD performance is sure to be an exciting one.
She revealed the line-up of her competition on Twitter (@Annette_15) the other day. She will take on Mike Matusow, Antonio Esfandiari, Erick Lindgren, Phil Laak, and Phil Hellmuth. Maybe she can put her slow-roll skills to the test on Phil Hellmuth. The blow-up could be epic.
We're not knockin those of you who need a little help in the love department. A certain someone, who recently won the WCOOP Main Event, will be appearing on the Bravo show "Millionaire Matchmaker." We'll let you watch the video to see for yourself. By the way Phil, don't quit your day job, a cameraman you are not.
