Poker Video of the Week: Full House Ain't Nuthin' Ta F Wit'

Beyond Poker Face: A Look at the Most Elaborate Costumes in Poker
Poker is all about deception so donning a costume is not exactly a giant stretch for high-stakes poker pros. Tournaments, which can be quite slow, are also a good venue for putting costumes on display. Over the years there’s been hundreds of poker pros who have donned elaborate costumes at the WSOP, EPT or WPT. Sometimes it’s just for fun, other times it’s because of a lost bet and other times it’s merely a player repping some product or company.

Video of the Week: From 7% to Heaven in the Main Event
By now it's no secret that Maria Ho is not only the charming host of the Battle of Malta, she’s also one of the best poker players in the world. Already a two-time Last Woman Standing in the WSOP Main Event, in 2016 she made another deep run before eventually finishing in 242nd-place. To get there, she obviously threw her skill around plenty over the first few days. She also, this time around, needed a little dose of luck.

Photo Blog: Get Ready for the 2016 Battle of Malta
There are bigger, richer poker festivals than the Battle of Malta but the small buy-in series is hard to top when it comes to the sheer amount of activities jammed into an eight-day schedule. For over a week the Portomaso Casino is turned into a fortress of poker proportions with cash games, tournaments, satellites and world-famous host Maria Ho. There’s plenty to do outside the casino as well with BOM-themed VIP clubs, pool parties, brunches and more.

Don’t Bust! The WSOP Main Event Final Table Bubble Blog
You can’t beat the drama that surrounds the WSOP Main Event final table bubble. It’s arguably the single biggest bubble in poker with nine lucky players becoming millionaires, instant-fame and numerous sponsorship opportunities while one unlucky player becomes a minor footnote in poker. The stands are generally packed with friends, family and fans and — for one day at least — people are really, really interested in watching people play poker.

Video of the Week: Doyle Stupefies Ivey w/ Kangaroo Read
Poker players who predominately play live will always tell you how important reads are at the table -- no matter how many hands you’ve played online or how well you play in general. Pros like Jason Mercier, Luca Pagano, Theo Jorgensen, Lex Veldhuis, Chris Moneymaker and Daniel Negreanu have all explained to us in depth how they use live reads to make big decisions. In this clip, however, Doyle Brunson takes his read to a completely new level. He doesn't read Phil Ivey’s hand; he reads his mind.
