1) AEJones AMA Highlights

Aaron Jones

Recent Fantasy Football $5m World Champ Aaron “AEjones” Jones did an AMA on Reddit last night that covered DFS, poker and everything in between.

Remember that before AEjones was winning DFS tournaments for $5m he was a feared high-stakes online poker pro who founded LeggoPoker.

You should check the complete thing out right here but in the meantime here are a few highlights to get you started:

  • Jones thinks DFS regulation is coming
  • His best DFS sport is actually MMA
  • Jones won his way into the $5m Fantasy Football World Championship in a $5k satellite
  • He spends much more time on DFS than poker these days
  • Thinks sports bettor Haralabos Voulgaris would crush DFS if he put in the time

2) Gruissem Offering $5k Challenge in HoldemX

HoldemX beast Philipp Gruissem

Would you play Philipp “Philbort” Gruissem for $5,000 in a game of HoldemX?

Probably not, right? And not just because no one knows what HoldemX is outside of GPI CEO Alexandre Dreyfus and a few others.

Regardless that’s what Gruissem is offering after playing around with the game for the last couple days.

The one benefit of likely losing $5,000 to Gruissem? You’ll finally get to know what the heck HoldemX is.

So far he’s had to settle for beating his girlfriend with the only stakes being the loser has to do a number of squats.

As usual Gruissem is crushing and his girlfriend is getting really fit.

Everybody wins.

3) Anna Khait's First Survivor Video

The rumors started swirling last summer but now we officially have the first shots of poker player Anna Khait in her Survivor get-up.

Khait of course will appear on Season 32 of the long-running CBS reality show. Her season takes place entirely in Koh Rong, Cambodia.

This year’s edition is separated into brains, brawn and beauty and Khait was put into the beauty category, unlike fellow poker pro Garret Adelstein who was placed on the brains' team in 2014’s Survivor: Cagayan.

Khait’s season debuts on February 17 with a 90-minute episode.

Here’s her bio video that was released by CBS yesterday:
