The Sunday Funnies 11/10/2013: A lighthearted look at the poker world
Ryan Reiss stirs the pot following WSOP win
While we all know that “It’s good to be the king,” (Google Mel Brooks and History of the World if you don’t get that quote, and then yell at yourself in the mirror for 20 minutes for never watching the film) what we didn’t know was this…
Apparently the recently crowned king of the poker world needs to mind his P’s and Q’s, as 2013 WSOP Champion Ryan Reiss caused a mini-firestorm on social media after declaring himself the best poker player in the world.
My advice to anyone who thinks Reiss was out of line with his comments: Think back to all of the stupid things that spewed from your mouth when you were 23, or if you’re more like me, the stupid stuff you said 23 minutes ago.
UBOC tournament from 2006 still a hot topic
Remember that tournament at Ultimate Bet where Annie Duke did the commentary and her actor/boyfriend won the thing, and people accused Annie of helping him along the way?
Well, apparently this is one controversy that simply refuses to go quietly into the night, even though the misdeed itself is about a 1.5 on a scale of 1-10.
Scott Bell was considering adding a segment on this tournament to his Ultimate Beat documentary, but decided to leave it on the cutting room floor. Instead Scott brought it up on a couple of forums, and is usually the case with anything Annie Duke the viewpoints were quite divergent and the talk got a bit heated.

AgentMarco leaving QuadJacks… Again
I’m not sure if this is going to become a yearly occurrence or not, but this week we learned that Marco Valerio is leaving QuadJacks for the second time in about a year or so.
Marco is one of my favorites in the poker world; blending insight and wit like few others are capable of, so I wish him well on whatever his new venture might be.
