Poker with a Purpose – strategy book with a purpose
21 well-known poker professionals have collaborated on a poker e-book and are giving all the profit to charity.
The book, named 'Poker with a Purpose' is a project that will benefit the Green World Campaign. It includes the writings of many famous poker pros like Annie Duke, Sorel Mizzi and a bunch of others, names of which are included in the bottom of the news.
The book covers a variety of (mostly beginners) topics, like board texture, 3-betting, cash game and tournament comparisons and so on.
The book is sold at just $9,99 and all of its profits go to the before mentioned charity. For everyone interested, the e-book can be bought on Amazon.
Here's the list of all the authors of this idea with a purpose:
Robbie Williams poker? Yeah, even that is possible
Although a number of worldwide celebrities have embraced poker in one way or another, not a lot of them started their own poker site. The famous pop singer did exactly this.
It's not a poker-only site but a gaming platform for all of Robbie's fans. The plan is to offer fun games for basically what we know as play money, but there is also considerable interest in having a section where real money is involved.
The project itself caused a lot of controversy, most of it coming from bureaucratic officials within the United Kingdom. The signer's management defends the site and states that their main focus is not money.

Poker pros crushing the games in Macau
The world of live cash games is back in China – and the pros are running the show at the highest stakes imaginable.

Although the latest tweets and blog updates report gargantuan losses by both Hansen and Trickett, the Pokerfarm pro also reported that after losing the biggest pot he was ever involved in, he got back on track and had a good session.
