    Often at a loss where to post general poker news stories, so a dedicated Poker News thread is probably warranted.

    Bwin Reports $730 Million Loss Due to Pullout from U.S.

    Austrian online bookmaker/poker site Bwin announced a net loss of €540 million (equal to roughly US $702 million) for 2006, the result of its withdrawal from the U.S. market. The lion's share of the net loss came from a $701 million write-off ('impairment charge') for its Ongame unit, which lost roughly 70% of its revenue stream following the signing of the UIGEA. Bwin's European operations, however, continued to show growth.

    Poker In The Face

    http://www.magicunlimited.com/PokerInTheFace.htm

    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    IF GREEN felt and high-suited hole cards arouse you, you simply must buy into this comic sit'n'go. If the previous sentence made nothing like sense, then you're a poker naif. So, I'm going to look for you the next time I'm in the Vegas Lounge, take all your money and shout you a ticket to this show with the spoils. Oh yeah. Mama needs a new pair of shoes.

    Poker nerds, such as your mildly desperate reviewer, will love this performance. Sitting at a card table, magician Tim Ellis deals out some tremendous tricks. As he does the impossible, he recounts stories of poker's true heroes. Doyle Brunson, Poker Alice and Wild Bill Hickok shoot and play their way through a lively narrative told with the deference of a true poker buff. Ellis is witty, truly engaged and magical.

    I'll probably see it on DVD, but it won't be much. Father and son miraculously find their way to the WSOP final table heads up?

    Yeah, ok.

    Apparently there are some other ultra cheesy/'not gonna happen' parts to it too, which I won't mention here just in case anyone cares about spoilers.

    I'll wait for dvd too.

    Far too many other awesome movies coming out.

    You should get Today Tonight to interview you. I bet they'd twist it good enough to make you look like you're broke, and stealing money from your parents' purse etc.

    Brian Townsend has record day at Bellagio

    He's played 1 WSOP event and seems thats all he'll play, not even the Main Event, I guess though why play boring tournaments for $5-$10k a pop when you put that in as a 3xBB in most of your cash games.

    That would be one the toughest PLO lineups in the world.

    GJ Brian for winning so much, but I don't know if he'd be able to repeat the feat for a while.

    I love Bobby Baldwin. He's definitely the best actor in the family.

    But seriously, he was interviewed in that poker doco from last year, No Limit, and I liked his no BS serious demeanour.

    Re: Poker News

    He wrote a book about Poker, sort of a autobiographical piece, giving lessons as he goes.

    I was flipping through it for about half an hour a few weeks ago at Borders. Seemed very insightful, might pick it up.
