From the Ivy League to the Big Leagues; a Story of a Champion Poker Player

The end of August will see one of France’s largest live poker events being played, as the Partouche Poker Tour (PPT) takesplace on the French Riviera. The event will be held at the […]

A Poker-Playing, Cigar Smoking Supreme Court Justice? Why Not?

It’s pretty awesome to think that Elena Kagan, President Barack Obama’s nominee for Supreme Court Justice is known not just for her intellect (OK, she’s one of the Harvard crowd), but her poker playing and the fact that she smokes cigars. So what? I think it’s pretty cool. It seems to be a big story […]
