21 Year Old Yevgeniy Timoshenko Wins 2009 WPT Championship
Another 21 year old wonder has taken yet another WPT title. Hmmm...how do I get some of that cash?
It took awhile, but 21-year-old online phenom Yevgeniy "Jovial Gent" Timoshenko won the 2009 Five-Star World Poker Classic WPT Championship late Saturday night. The feat took eight days and thousands of hands, but in the end, the young gun got it done, besting a stacked final table that included Scotty Nguyen, Shannon Shorr, Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier, Christian Harder and eventual runner-up, Ran Azor.

Poker Madness by Kevin Kozar - Win at Texas Hold 'Em
In our tireless pursuit to figure out how to go pro, or at least later in life make some good dough playing limit hold 'em - this book has it all.
If you are a losing limit Texas hold ‘em player and are tired of losing or if you make money playing limit Texas hold ‘em, but you want to make more money or if you want to play limit Texas hold ‘em for a living, this is the book for you! I was already a winning limit Texas hold ‘em player when I decided to turn professional, but I was not prepared mentally nor was I good enough to make the kind of money I needed to play poker for a living. I learned in a hurry though. Most of what I needed to know to be really successful I learned at the “school of hard knocks”. The lessons at this school are expensive ones. Fortunately, you are not going to have pay for these “hard knock” lessons like I had to, instead for the price of one small pot that you would have won if you had read this book first, you will learn what you need to know in order to become a successful professional limit Texas hold ‘em player.

I really had no idea that Huck Seed was a prop bet king. Yep - apparently prop bets abound while golfing etc. This is a great read over at Poker News - and I also had no idea he was 6'7" tall.
Not only has Huckleberry Seed won the WSOP Main Event, four gold bracelets, and over $4.5 million in poker tournaments, he is regarded as one of the greatest proposition gamblers of all time. Seed has taken on challenges to do a standing back flip (successful), float in the ocean for a 24-hour period (unsuccessful), and break 100 on a Las Vegas golf course four times in one day using only three clubs (successful — and he did it in 100-degree heat). Standing a lanky 6'7" tall, Seed is a quiet, introspective presence at the table, preferring to let his skills do the talking rather than running off at the mouth. Though he'll never be the showiest player in the room or actively seek the spotlight like
