The Chief911 poker histories along with the new poker article are indeed coming, I'm just late as usual. Unfortunately my late Christmas shopping has something to do with it, so expect them sometime next week, when I finally have some time for R&R. Note that there will be no forum tournament this weekend as well.
In other news, Party Poker has now implemented their own player rewards system which they have had under wraps for awhile from what I know. No solid word on what they will be offering for their rewards, but most likely freerolls and merchandise in exchange for player points. This is a good sign for us poker players, since all the poker sites are ramping up their promotions to compete against each other for new signups. All the poker sites are also having mass end of the year promotions and bonuses as well, so now is the time to sign up if you haven't already.

Got the single table tournament replays from Chief911 uploaded in the visitor histories section, with the MTT games coming closely. The CTM forum tournament histories have also been posted as well, in the tournament section. I also added my $10 STT history pack from the rapid attack tournament into the my histories section, for anyone interested in more low limit STT stuff.
Poker Edge has also released a new update which you should download if you're already using Poker Edge. If you're not, you can check out the review on the link in the below post.

Congratulations to the PPSG forum for the great showing in the tournament vs the WPTFan guys – taking 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th and 7th place. Hats of to dday4 for his 2nd place finish in his second tournament with us. Surprise presents to JP and Terminal as well, who win either copies of Poker Tracker or 2-month subscriptions to Poker Edge! Thanks to everyone who participated in the tournaments.
In other news, Chief911, a high-stakes tournament player from the 2+2 forums has submitted some hand histories to be posted on the site. Chief submitted these histories awhile ago, but I'm finally now got them in good enough shape to post up, so be ready for that treat soon.
Next week, I will also be posting another poker article called "'Loosing' your way into the money". This article is based off some of my personal poker theories and the confirmation some of my thinkings in the new book, Small Stakes Hold'em. Highly recommended book, but ONLY in conjunction with another 'standard' book like Texas Hold'em For Advanced Players or The Theory of Poker. More on this later.
