Who should be Ante Up's Most Popular Dealer 2016? I encourage you to vote for Dave Burns. Great guy. Cast your vote: http://www.anteupmagazine.com/mpd
Ante Up's MPD (Most Popular Dealer) 2016 contest. Dealers from all over the United States were nominated to be Ante Up's MPD (Most Popular Dealer) this year, and here are the nominees chosen to compete. Some nominated themselves. Others were nominated by players, colleagues or supervisors.

When I turned 21 (I'm 33 now), I walked into Ho-Chunk Casino at midnight to play poker. Dave Burns was a great dealer then and continues to be to this day. I'm excited to see him nominated for Ante Up's 2016 Most Popular Dealer. Please take a moment and give him your vote. He deserves it and it'd be great to see a Midwest dealer win it -> http://www.anteupmagazine.com/mpd

If you're looking for live updates from the MSPT Venetian, you can follow them all week long here -> http://bit.ly/MSPTVenetian Day 1a kicked off today. Should be a fun one as there's a great mix of players from the Midwest battling it out with Vegas pros like former WSOP Main Event champs Jerry Yang and Carlos Mortensen.

Not often I get to do an interview with a football legend. While it's not the football I grew up with and love, my travels have shown me the "other" football is insanely popular, and Denilson is a pretty big name in Brazil.

Happy to announce that in addition to serving as Media Director for the Mid-States Poker Tour, I will be writing occasional news pieces for CardsChat. Did my first this weekend as Survivor's "Boston" Rob Mariano won an event at Run It Up Reno!
From Run It Up Reno (RIUR), Survivor legend "Boston" Rob Mariano talks exclusively to CardsChat about playing poker at Jason Somerville's series.

Alexander "Assassinato" Fitzgerald is hosting a free webinar on Monday all about blind defense. He is among my favorite poker coaches out there. I will definitely be attending this as a good lead up to Run It Up Reno. Reserve your spot for free here -> http://holdembook.com/holloway/live/

A fun piece I did about a unique filming technique utilized at 888local event at Aspers Casino to capture the action in a side event that featured the likes of Dominik Nitsche & Kara Scott. The video marks the first time a 360 video has been used in poker.

Last week I had the honor of attending Run It Up Reno. It was without a doubt one of the funnest poker experiences ever. If you get a chance to go in the future, I couldn't recommend it highly enough. For more on it, check out my recap up on CardsChat -> https://www.cardschat.com/news/run-it-up-reno-big-winners-include-kevin-martin-and-blake-vincent-24233
Jason Somerville's Run It Up Reno event at the Peppermill Resort Hotel had many winners and even more fun. We share the highlights with you.
