Annette has obvioulsy been taking a vacation: she hasn’t been spotted at Pokerstars for over a month. We all know it is her favorite poker room, even though she’s contracted by Betfair Poker, in a desperate attempt to attract more clients to their site. Sure, she plays there and has even won a few tourneys, but really, Pokerstars is her home base.
Last Sunday she reached the final table of the Sunday Warmup outlasting 3000 players. She finished 6th, taking home $30,000. Welcome back, Annette. At 9 september we’ll announce who will be added to our Babes In Poker Players category. Could it really be Annette? We can reveal right now it’s gonna be close. Her closest competitor? Daniel Negreanu… Good luck u2!

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!

layla kayleighOn Monday it was rumored that Layla Kaleigh may not be with World Poker Tour for a new season. This rumor was confirmed by the WPT in a press release and by Layla on her Myspace blog. The feisty Britt claims that she was asked back to do another season but opted out for personal reasons.

More from Kayleigh:

“Also you should know that as much fun as I had on season 6 of the World Poker Tour, I will not be returning for a 2nd season.

WPT were kind enough to ask me back for a 2nd season, however after much thought and deliberation I decided that I really want to minimize traveling in my schedule this year, focus more on my health and personal relationships, and they were very understanding to where I was coming from.

Might I add, that I had the most adventurous time on the road, learned so much about life and poker! and most importantly gained the most amazing friendship with my dear friend Kim Lansing (who I really hope lands the hosting position for Season 7)”

Well just like everyone else we’re also cheering for Kimberly Lansing who is a huge fan favorite on BIP. Currently, Lansing handles all the WPT online interviews and update reports.

As for Layla Kayleigh she joins the list of Sabina Gadecki, Courtney Friel, and Shanna Hiatt as previous World Poker Tour chicks.

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.
