Scooooooop! Bodog’s Poker Babe Evelyn Ng is dating Dutch poker pro Lex “RaSZi” Veldhuis. On his blog, RaSZi writes: “The best thing about Vegas was definitely ‘meeting’ my new girlfriend, Evelyn Ng. We already met two years ago in Vegas and got along great, but nothing specific. The past year we have been talking a lot online and we have a lot of things in common. I went to hang out at the charity barbecues for Phil Ivey’s charity foundation, where Evelyn organized a Guitar Hero tournament for charity. In the week after we saw each other daily and we’re going out since then. I actually stayed in Vegas for 2 extra weeks. So i came back from Vegas a winner in the end;)
Coming from the Starcraft-world, RaSZi multi-tables the mid/high stakes NL games on Stars. He writes strategy articles for Pokernews and will be one of the instructors for their new video-strategy-site. One of his famous accomplishments was turning $200 into $+100K in a single session on Full Tilt Poker, playing mostly heads-up cash games. Now he’s heads-up with Evelyn Ng. Nh, sir.

Update 25 August: Evelyn kindly posted the following photo on the 2+2 Forums, to confirm the story:

Nope, this is not about the EPT Best Newcomer Nominees. Annette will probably win that award, beating Trond Erik Eidsvig, Jason Mercier, Denes Kalo and Mike McDonald. The nominees were announced yesterday and the winner will be picked September 9th in Barcelona at the EPT Awards.
No no, this article is not about that. What is it about then?

We are happy to announce Annette Obrestad has been added to our list of Nominees for Poker Babe Players! She joins the likes of Jennifer Harman, Jimmy Fricke and Daniel Negreanu (huh?).

It is up to you to see if she’ll make the official gallery of Poker Babe Players of We will pick one of the Nominees on September 9th 2008 -which was the set date long before the EPT even existed - based on the amount of your views. So if you like to see Annette on the same page as Shannon Elizabeth and Tiffany Michelle, start clicking!

Yesterday, GSN aired the next to last appearance of the beautiful Layla Kayleigh and Kimberly Lansing on the World Poker Tour Ladies Championship. It was Vanessa Selbst who defeated Erica Schoenberg heads-up, but all the attention went to Layla and Kimberly for sure.
Layla Kayleigh was asked to be WPT’s hostess for another season, but she turned down the offer, saying she doesn’t want to travel that much and wants to focus more on her health and personal relationships. You go girl! Sabina Gadecki, Courtney Friel and Shana Hiatt were Layla’s pre-successors.
Kimberly Lansing is WPT’s online hostess, and now takes over the whole show. Thank god.

While browsing the 2+2 forums I came across a thread which mentioned something about Hevad Khan getting into a fight. I was busy at the time and later returned to 2+2 and could not find the post anywhere. Apparently it  had been deleted, which I discovered after stumbling across this thead on the Poker Prop forums.

The person in this video is obviously not PokerStars’ sponsored Hevad Khan, but it looked enough like him in made for a good gag post. Apparently a mod at 2+2 did not find the humor.

Jim pointed out that this could potentially be a FAUX news hoax because the guy who gets the best beating (watch 1:17 mark in the video a few times) certainly resembles Sam Farha.

If by some slim chance this was RaINkAhn; players should probably take his next rabid howler monkey dance at the poker table a bit more seriously.

We usually do our best to add some humor and controversy to poker news or to find a way to relate hot babes to poker happenings, but today there is no funny way which we can spin this story.

In a move that has outraged much of the online poker community, Cliff Josephy, better known online as JohnnyBax has signed to endorse Ultimate Bet, and we all know ULTIMATE BET CHEATS!

This is a sad day for poker as JohnnyBax truly “was” one of the most looked up to and respected players in the online poker industry. He was often ranked the number one online player in the world and “had” a following to the likes of which online poker might never see again.

I wish I somehow had it in me to crack jokes about how they must of offered him a superuser account, but honestly I don’t. This is a sad day for poker.

A 2+2 thread to tell JohnnyBax what a scumbag move this is.

JohnnyBax is a sellout!

The innovative high stakes poker cash game may have dealt its last hand in season 4. High Stakes Poker has not filmed a new season for 2008, which in previous years they already had filming done by May. Pokerati reports that there are most likely no plans to do a new season.

Here is what AJ Benza had to say about it:

Far as Gabe and I know….the show isnt coming back. Apparently…the network is going to go in a different direction and that aint good news for our show, especially since we skew a higher-aged audiuence. Never mind that we’re the network’s No. 1 show. Still and all, no one calls us from the network to say squat. Only Kevin Bellincoff checks in periodically, but it just don’t seem like good news. If you ask me…they’re treating us like shit. All we ever did was make them a bunch of money.

It will be interesting to get the official story from GSN. Who would have ever thought it would be a smart business move for any network to discontinue their highest rated show. Not that its saying much, there is only so many hours of Lingo one person can watch.

Popular online poker player Daniel Negreanu has made poker headlines once again for his late night / early morning sleep deprived poker ramblings. He recently made an entry on his poker blog tilted, eating brains. This post was more creepy than the usual “I might be gay” DN entry, as it also included the following statement:

“I’m in that killer mindset, like I literally want to eat people’s brains. Just literally rip their brains to shreds after an appetizer of ripping their hearts out of their chests, taking a big bite out of them, and then spitting the blood back in their faces.”

Could Daniel Negreanu possibility be a member of the Zombie Group that George Bush has been warning about? Watch the video below and decide for yourself.

jimmy frickeBack in late November we made a post about Jimmy Fricke emailing Full Tilt Poker for a sponsorship. You can find the story/post here. Anyways, after he wrote an email to Full Tilt, he was responded with a automated no thank you. However, the Full Tilt rep accidentally forwarded the response from Howard Lederer. This JD asked Howard what his thoughts were on this Fricke guy. Howard called Fricke a “freak” and “very weird dude”. Yeah, we are thinking exactly what you are thinking right now, who the fuck does Howard Lederer think he is? (Obviously someone who can’t play outside the box. - Phil Hellmuth)

Back to the story, Fricke was back playing in the Aussie Millions after he took second place in the Main Event the year before. He ended up winning a preliminarily event and took home close to $15k. The event was a $550 Limit 7 Card Stud, 7 Card Stud Hi/lo and Razz. I bet Full Tilt could of received a lot of extra promotion since Fricke won another event, not to mention a large banner on his clothing…

There were many rumors surrounding Josh Fields who is also know as ‘JJProdigy’ or ‘ablackcar’, that he may be playing in the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure events. However, PokerStars had its own angle to deal multi-user Josh Fields. PokerStars is taking on a new notion on banning players from partakHot Chicking in live events if they are banned from the PokerStars website. Josh Fields was banned on PokerStars and Party Poker back in early 2006 when he was found cheating. He also had over $180,000 confiscated.

This all got stirred up again last week when Josh Fields issued an apology on and can be viewed here. Here are a few quotes from his post: “I was fourteen turning fifteen, and I was much too immature to handle the situation (ABlackCar incident, and the underage violations that followed). I am almost embarrassed reading my posts about the situation, but I realize that I was still very young at the time.”
After all that happened, I was banned from PokerStars and PartyPoker, and all my accounts were closed for being underage. .”

I finally realize now that I was cheating completely. I neglected my fellow poker players and cheated a wonderful thing we have with online poker. I betrayed a community I cared so much about all for selfish reasons. It shames me to think about it. I did it for so long, and I never had the courage to quit and admit what I was doing was wrong.”

So, I write this to officially apologize to the community. I apologize to the people that have been close to me and have been given a negative name due to my actions. I apologize to all the players I played with under unknown names and gave myself an unfair advantage. I give my word that I will never multi-account again, and I will not play online until I am 18. I apologize to the sites that I unfairly took advantage of. I don’t expect to be forgiven right away, but I hope I can earn the forgiveness of the community, the sites, and even my friends.”

We kinda feel for the kid since he was quite young when he pulled this shit off. However, it seems quite convenient that he is apologizing now, 2 weeks before he turns 18? Something tells us that Josh has something cooking… Well anyways, we won’t see him at this years Pokerstars Caribbean Adventure.

This all started in 2006, when user name ‘ablackcar’ won the $500,000 GTD on Party Poker and took home $140k. Within an hour after he won, an on the ball poster at Pocketfives forum realized that ‘ablackcar’ and ‘JJProdigy’ has striking similarities. It escalated from there, and before you know it, both accounts were froze by Party Poker and Josh Fields was guilty of multi-accounting and cheating. PokerStars did there own investigation and concluded that he was in fact cheating there.

If Josh Fields was killing tournaments when he was 14, he must possess some serious poker skills. We guarantee we have not heard the last of the infamous Josh Fields.
