In mid-September and in the aftermath of the sale of Full Tilt Poker to PokerStars, Howard Lederer surprised the poker community by finally breaking his silence and requesting an interview with PokerNews.com.
It’s finally happened. After a year and a half of chaos, the players have been repaid and, on 6th November, will be able to log on to FullTiltPoker.com, access their funds and play poker. No one is champing harder at the bit than the world’s foremost action junkie Gus Hansen. He even gets his funny little avatar back.

The rake for online cash games is usually capped at a certain amount – for most sites it’s $3 (or €3, etc.)*. This means that the higher you go up the stakes, the less rake you pay in relation to the big blind. In turn, this means the price of playing in terms of big blinds (BBs) goes up as you go down the levels.
When facing an all-in or river bet, your opponent is either bluffing or value-betting, so your first step is to work out whether he can be bluffing says Ben Jackson. If the answer is no, then you have to work out whether there are any hands he is betting for value that you can beat.

I thought this month I would compose a compilation of rub downs that might amuse you or even inspire you to opt for a rub down of your own should the situation require it. Obviously, a rub down can be given by accident or, if deliberate, it can be just a bit of fun with someone you know will take it in a light-hearted manner. It can also be a deliberate act to put down someone for whom you have a lack of respect.
