Did you know Scandinavian poker pro Andreas Høivold can shape shift?
Neither did we but you’ve gotta admit he looks slightly like surly Deep Space Nine constable/shape shifter Odo.
We’ve never thought about it before but Odo has a pretty killer poker face. It gets even better when he turns into his natural gelatinous form.
Meanwhile Høivold actually has $1.7 million in real-life lifetime tournament earnings including a cash in PokerListings’ own Battle of Malta last fall. So there’s that.

We’ve been in the poker coverage game for over a decade now and we’ve developed a few theories on what makes the great players so damn good.
With that in mind we’ve created the monstrosity you see above, which is a Frankenstein-style collection of some of the most famous poker players in the world.
If you ever see this guy staring across at you from the other side of the table you might as well fold your hand, give him all your chips and give up poker for Uno tournaments.
For those keeping track at home here’s a breakdown of the world’s greatest poker player.
- 1. Phil Ivey’s intense stare, obv.
- 2. French Canadian pro Erik Cajelais’ fearsome right arm. Perfect for raising. Or punching.
- 3. Scotty Nguyen’s luxurious hair. That’s Prince of Poker style, baby.
- 4. Doyle Brunson’s iconic cowboy hat. It’s seen things.
- 5. Teddy “Iceman” Monroe’s diamond headphones. The most baller item in poker.
- 6. Dan Bilzerian’s beard. Hey this girl can’t be wrong.
- 7. Viktor “Isildur1” Blom’s laptop. Ready for multi-tabling.
- 8. Daniel Negreanu’s laugh (not pictured). That’s how you make the fish feel comfortable.

Well this is unexpected.
With this being the 10-year anniversary of the European Poker Tour we thought there would be a number of special commemorations to celebrate the tour.
A rap video wasn’t the first thing that came to our mind.
Apparently PokerStars felt differently because they commissioned New Jersey rapper Nick Javas to create a song about the history of the EPT.
The result, titled Ride on the River, is interesting. We’ll let you judge the quality of the music.
On the bright side the video does a good job of showcasing some of the biggest stories over the course of the tour including Jason Mercier, Vicky Coren and Liv Boeree’s impressive breakout victories.
It also highlights some of the more interesting draughts, like how no one has ever won two EPT titles (pretty surprising).
Check out the video after jump.
