Cada's Latest Shodown
Shodown Couture has announced the signing of Joe Cada as the latest celebrity spokesperson for the brand. Cada joins Paul Wasicka and Mike "Timex" McDonald on the Shodown Pro-Team.
“The signing is a perfect match with Shodown’s brand image and philosophy. Joe’s style is aggressive but he is respectful while playing. He intimidates at the tables.” said Philip Lake, president and founder of Shodown. “He is the face of poker and is extremely talented. He represents what Shodown is about: quality play, bad ass style, and respect for the game.”

Hellmuth on First Take
Phil Hellmuth stopped by Bristol, Conn., yesterday to film a segment on ESPN's "First Take" with the show's host, Jay Crawford. The primary point of discussion was Hellmuth's ongoing transition away from "The Poker Brat."
Hellmuth did not moan senselessly about his wicked bad beat from the recent World Poker Tour final table, so it looks like he is off to a good start. We won't be convinced, however, until Hellmuth squares off against some Eastern Europeans and Internet players day in and day out at the World Series of Poker.
