Getting Into Hellmuth's Head?
Tilting Phil Hellmuth is not the most difficult thing in the world to do. In fact, it seems all one needs to do is to play a few speculative hands, reraise Phil a few times or get it in with the worst of it and suck out.
Well, word on the felt is that Hellmuth has hired renowned mindset coach Sam Chauhan to help him cope with the difficulties of being Phil. Chauhan, who is slowly becoming a regular on the poker scene, has already made significant progress with the likes of Antonio Esfandiari, Josh Arieh and Gavin Smith. Since each began working with Chauhan, they have seen positive results at the tables, all earning six-figure cashes.
We ask only one thing of you Sam, don't tame the beast too much. Half of the fun at the World Series of Poker is seeing Hellmuth lose it on some "internet kid," who doesn't know how to play the game, like Justin Bonomo or Adam "roothlus" Levy. Dang those whippersnappers.

Team PokerNews USA Wins Epic Cricket Battle
To cap off a great 2010 Aussie Millions, the PokerNews team set out onto the Cricket field in a battle to the death. It was Team Aussie vs. Team USA, and we'll let you watch the video below to see how it played out.
The infamous Jenny Woo from Gambling 911 is back at it in 2010 naming some of the sexiest people in poker in her column. Woo has already listed Phil Hellmuth on her list for 2010. It must have been that ESPN The Magazine shoot last fall that had everybody weak at the knees (although maybe not in a good way).
This week she is about Erica Schoenberg. What's Schoenberg working with to get Woo riled up? Well, according to Woo, she's farm fed, sassy and classy, she's feminine but still can hang with the boys, and she's got real breasts.
Sounds like a legit choice to us. Now, if we can dress her up like Hellmuth in a leather jacket, Oakley shades and a black cap, we'll really be in business.
