Just a few weeks after the Amneville event wraps up, players from all around the world will be descending on the Czech Republic to take part in the WPT Bohemia, which is set to take place from Nov. 18. The event has an affordable $2,150 buy-in, so it is sure to attract a wide variety of players. There's a $3,000 tournament package up for grabs at PartyPoker, so there's no reason not to take your shot at a WPT title.
The latest addition to the World Poker Tour is WPT Prague, and the inaugural event is set to become a welcomed stop on the tour.

Tony G Speaks Out Against Andrew Robl — Again
Tony G and Andrew "good2cu" Robl have had a rocky relationship which began late last year when Tony G and Robl had a run-in on an episode of the Big Game. After terrorizing Robl for taking too long to make decisions, Tony G wrote a blog post apologizing to Robl. The blog, entitled, I Am the Third Most Hated Man in Poker has recently received somewhat of a sequel, as the Tony G and Robl story continues.
The controversy began when Tony G and Robl were taking part in a big hand against each other at the World Series of Poker Europe. Apparently Robl was inattentive, and wearing headphones, therefore he couldn’t hear Tony G. The headphones made Robl “deaf” according to Tony G, who suggested that if Robl was deaf, he would lend him his dog Zasko as a guide dog. Tony G went as far as claiming that Robl’s behavior made him a “shameful example of a modern Internet player, and this cost him his respect."
Full details of the hand and Tony G’s comments on Robl’s etiquette can be found on Tony G’s Blog.
