Fernando Pons: 2016 WSOP November Nine Bio | World Series of Poker
Spaniard Fernando Pons may be the shortest stack at the 2016 WSOP Main Event final table but he’s already earned one hell of a return on his investment.

Incredibly, the 2016 WSOP Main Event was the first time that Pons had ever played a WSOP event.

$300k Super High Roller Bowl Turns into Beard Bowl 2016
Stacks of cash. Chips piled high. Fresh felt. Fiji water for everyone. Beards. You can’t walk two feet at the $300,000 Super High Roller Bowl without running into at least one of those items.

Poker Video of the Week: Hellmuth Goes Fetal After WPT Suckout
It's an understatement to say Phil Hellmuth is a polarizing player in the poker world. Some love him for his “winning” instinct and attitude; others hate him for his arrogant, exaggerated and narcissistic posturing at and away from the tables.
