Hope you enjoy the first article about fantasy betting, submitted by Alex. Many statistically minded sports fans are tempted to try their hand at sports betting.  After all, with a solid understanding of Sabermetrics, Read more [...]

It happens to the best of us

Tuesday, March 10th, 2009 | Poker Articles, Poker Tournament | 3 Comments

Submitted by Dungbeetle, this article belongs to the Poker Tournament series. I find consolation in the fact that other and better tournament players also experience unbelievable misfortune. On a positive note it looks like Dungbeetle's 2009 results are coming around. Sigh... Just remembered why online tournaments are one of the most frustrating inventions in history. I was flying in the Pokerstars $50 rebuy, being chip leader from about 100 runners out till about 30 left. With 15 left I Read more [...]
