Poker Video of the Week: Colman Finds World-Class Check
Usually in our video of the week we present you with particularly spectacular bluffs, calls or even folds. Sometimes, though, we find hands that go against all odds. This week we’re showcasing a hand that would otherwise probably go unnoticed -- even thought it was played by one of the best players in the world and shows his outstanding skills. Playing top pair, Colman finds a check on the river that very few players would be able to make.

Video of the Week: Now Who’s the Boss, Will Kassouf?
It was one of the most controversial scenes of the World Series of Poker last year.  Stacy Matuson and Will Kassouf first battled it out on the felt and then engaged in a verbal back-and-forth over his (and her) behavior in a high-profile hand shown on ESPN. At the 888Live festival in Rozvadov in February 2017, they met again for the first time for a heads-up battle to "settle things" once and for all – and this time, they went differently.

From Loki to Libratus: A Look at 20+ Years of Poker AI Development
The rise of poker AI has been a strange journey to say the least. Early in 2017 Libratus finished dismantling a human team of heads-up wizards including Jason Les, Dong Kim, Daniel McAulay and Jimmy Chou. It was arguably the most dominant performance by an AI playing poker and a landmark achievement for non-human poker. It’s also been a long time coming as software developers have been tinkering with poker software since the early days of computers.

Video of the Week: Galfond Stars in 'Not Quite the Nuts'
At the moment, Phil Galfond is deep in the tank working on launching his new online poker room, “Run It Once."  But that shouldn’t keep us from remembering he’s still one of the best players in the world. He only played a couple of tournaments last year. One of them was the $300k Super High Roller Bowl, where he showed us how strong of a move a fold can be.

Video of the Week: The Longest Bluff in Poker History
A brave bluff is one of the most beautiful things poker has to offer. One single good move is often enough to win a pot against a mediocre hand. In our video of the week we’ll see what happens when two stubborn players clash in a hand that doesn’t have any showdown value -- and where the regular laws of poker don’t seem to count anymore.

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.

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.
