Rohan Long is the newest owner of a World Series of Poker Circuit gold ring. It didn't come easy thought. At one point, Long was at a 15 to 1 chip disadvantage when heads-up play began and he overcame eight all-ins during three-handed and heads-up play to take home the title and $32,592 in cash.
This Circuit stop continues until March 14. Check out where the WSOP-C will be next on WSOP.com.
Maxim magazine is using the recent LA Poker Classic as a guise for naming its top 20 celebrity poker aces. We think, even without using the LAPC as a reason for producing this list, people would still check it out. Aren't hot chicks that play poker a few of your favorite things anyway?
Vanessa Rousso, Jennifer Tilly, Shannon Elizabeth, and Tiffany Michelle are the pros who made the list. Joanna Krupa, Jenny McCarthy, Sarah Silverman, and Cameron Diaz made the list too. We'll classify them as most likely to play a celebrity charity event and that's it - well except for Krupa who is the hostess of the North American Poker Tour.
Find out who else made the list at Maxim.com.
Facing the FBI
The FBI has recently become involved in the copyright infringement lawsuit that Brandon McSmith has filed against Poker PROductions. McSmith claims that the company, which has produced shows like High Stakes Poker and Poker After Dark, used his idea for Face the Ace and did not compensate him.
McSmith was contacted recently by the FBI regarding this case. “This week, the FBI got in touch with me twice and asked for all of the information. They’ll be launching an investigation of the copyright infringement charges," he said.
We don't know much about FBI investigations, but it might be a bit more deeply rooted than just a copyright infringement case.
