Jeremy Ausmus has been busy making the most of his profile heading into next week’s WSOP Main Event final table.
The October Niner bagged a deal with social media firm TTAGIT Social Networks Inc last weeks and has now agreed a deal to represent free to play online poker site HogWild Poker. The site will be celebrating its new signing by hosting a special tournament tonight that will send the winner to Las Vegas to rail the WSOP final table. Cash and bounty prizes are also on offer in the freeroll which gets under way at 9pm ET. "We couldn't be more excited to have a player of Jeremy's caliber representing us at the Main Event final table," said Jeff Amrein, CEO of HogWild Poker. "He perfectly fits what our brand is all about—he's a competitive guy who loves and respects the game of poker." October Niner Ausmus agrees, "HogWild Poker is by far the most competitive free-to-play site out there. I look forward to getting to know the community and finding some good games to play."

Sometimes bizarre things happen at the poker table and only the smartest will prevail, says Jeff Kimber.
I had quite a tough opening table at the recent GPS in Birmingham, which is unusual so early in the tournament. There were a couple of decent players to my right and also Paul McTaggart (who beat me heads up in last year’s Edinburgh GPS) and another decent player to my left.
I’ve noticed an increased tendency recently among players on forums and in tournaments towards the bubble. They seem to be taking ICM too literally. They seem to be forgetting that the “M” in ICM stands for “model”. Your true equity in bubble situations is not exactly as ICM predicts. I’d like to recap the known shortcomings of the model, and consider some rules of thumb to help with decision making in the heat of battle.

I watched Rounders this week. I mean, I’ve watched it before but only about 23 times so it was due a revisit. I heartily recommend it.
