Quote of the Month: Padraig Parkinson refutes any suggestion that Devilfish could be a criminal mastermind — “Firstly, between playing poker and partying, the man barely has time to sleep, let alone look after a criminal empire. Secondly, if you’ve ever been to Hull, you will no doubt be aware that even if the ’Fish stole the whole city and used it as collateral for a buy-in at Bobby’s Room, he’d probably end up owing a few quid.

Story of the Month: Both Entraction and bwin showed significant poker revenue growth in 2009 despite the biting recession.

Hand of the Month: Premier League, “[Luke] Schwartz was a significant chip favourite going into the heads up battle with 1.32 million compared to [David] Benyamine’s 520,000 but an early double up with K-10 against K-7 saw Benyamine take the lead.”

Blog of the Month: Jen Mason tackles the murky world of poker in China.
