Hellmuth selling Vegas home
Well he doesn’t have a WSOP to use it for, so why not put it on the market to fund a few high rollers?
Phil Hellmuth is selling his Las Vegas home for $430,000 (quite a bit above recommended asking price) and he took to Twitter for try and dodge expensive realtor fees, baby.
I’m selling my house in Las Vegas, it’s in the Las Vegas Country Club: 2909 Bel Air Drive. I’m having an old friend, @KarinaJett, sell it for me. Before we list it on MLS, I thought I would give social media a shot. Reach out to Karina if you’re interested: $430,000 #POSITIVITY pic.twitter.com/fiBLoOKXRQ

The replies are pure comedy gold but the biggest takeaway for long time poker fans is that, yes, that is the same house from the infamous ‘balcony’ video:”
This @phil_hellmuth clip has been trending & I think it’s some of the greatest poker content of all time.

PokerStars release security information
Our friends at CardPlayerLifeStyle got their hands on this fascinating infographic last week detailing the security steps PokerStars have taken since October 2019.
The PokerStars security team are known as one of the best but have always been quite guarded releasing their information, until now.
Amongst other things, PokerStars has a whopping 1.9 million active players and an almost similar amount in dollars has been returned from cheaters caught in the act.
Vice journalist admits cheating
We almost didn’t feature this because we didn’t want to give anyone a stupid idea, but everyone in poker is talking about it.
Thankfully they are all lambasting the Vice journalist who wrote about using a bot to play online poker with.
Don’t do this folks, it will get caught and as you will see from his replies, you won’t win any friends for doing it:
Thought I’d spend lockdown getting really good at online poker, but it’s boring and difficult and I’m actually very shit at it, so I used a bot to grift my way to £200 instead: https://t.co/2GWjmcE8Zd

LATB but not as we know it
Finally, as life gets back to normal in some parts of the world we once again got to share the latest sick pot from the Live At The Bike stream.
Of course if you had seen this socially distanced hand a year ago you would have wondered what the hell was going on, but there we have it, the new normal!
Will Phil sell that house at that price? Let us know in the comments:
