However, this time Newnum will be seated at the table with a rack of yellow chips to show that there is more to WhoJedi than policing the twitter community.

Newnum is an avid poker player with many internet and live tournament cashes, including a first place No Limit Hold'em trophy that he won at a nearby Los Angeles casino, earlier this week.

The Bicycle Casino is giving away an iPad2 to the High Hand* of the day, every day in November. Play any of The Bike's Plaza Games, including Live at the Bike, in November and you too could win an iPad2.

How it works: The Plaza Floor will track each qualifying High-Hand starting at midnight. If, for example, a player at a $2-3 No Limit Hold'em ($100-$300) table shows Quad 4s on the board at 1:00 p.m., then Quad 4s will be announced as the High-Hand to beat. If at 4:00 p.m. a player shows Quad 8s at the $40-80 Limit Hold'em table, then Quad 8s is the High-Hand to beat. If at 10:00 p.m. a player sitting in a $10-25 ($1000+) No Limit Hold'em game shows a 6-High Straight Flush, then the 6-High Straight Flush will be the High-Hand to beat. If by 11:59 p.m., no other hand is better than a 6-High Straight Flush, the player who showed the High-Hand will win an iPad2.

The first player to show a Royal Flush will immediately win the iPad2 for the day

*High-Hand is Quads or better. The High-Hand to beat will be posted in the Plaza Section. Players must show both cards for his/her hand to qualify, but only one of the hole cards is needed to complete the hand.

Bart Hanson and Nichoel Jurgens will be taking calls and answering your questions on Tuesday,  November 1st from 6:00 p.m. PDT until 9:00 p.m. PDT.

Poker Netcast’s Live at the Bike webcast, the first and only cash game poker captured specifically for the web and streamed direct from the world famous Bicycle Casino, has just gotten better.

Since its initial debut in early 2005, the Live at the Bike webcast has brought live poker, from mid limits to high stakes cash games to million dollar tournaments, into the homes of hundreds of thousands of people worldwide. Live at the Bike has aired nearly 500 episodes of unedited cash and tournament games utilizing multiple cameras in and around the Live at the Bike table, with commentators discussing the action and game theory.

Live at the Bike was reality poker at its best; an unscripted and uncasted live cash game that showed everyone’s whole cards. It was the best insight you could get to how players play poker during a standard session.”-

 Now, Poker Netcast is proud to announce that it will unveil its new Radio-Frequency Identification table for the Bicycle Casino’s Big Poker Oktober $100,000 Guaranteed No Limit Hold’em final table webcast.  The new Live at the Bike table will provide the Poker Netcast audience with a live, instant feed of all the action, better quality graphics of players’ hole cards, the board, and context-sensitive statistics during play.


The Big Poker Oktober $100,000 Guaranteed No Limit Hold’em final table will air on at 2:00 p.m. PDT on Saturday, September 24, 2011 with Alan Ly and Marie-Lizette Acoba calling the action. Although there will be no live commentators for the tournament final table, the Live at the Bike cash game will air at its regularly scheduled time on Tuesday, September 27, 2011 at 7:30 p.m. PDT with all the bells and whistles.

Danielle 'dmoongirl' Andersen is here in Los Angeles and will be sitting down to play with a few of our regulars on September 12, 2011 at 7:30 p.m.

The former Full Tilt Poker Red Pro is considered to be one of the top online cash game players around and one of the few women to successfully earn her living at the $25/$50 No Limit Hold'em 6-max on-line. If you've never heard of Danielle, you're not alone. Unlike Tom "Durrr" Dwan and Viktor "Isildur1" Blom, the 27-year-old wife and mother from New Ulm, Minnesota was able to stay low key for years. However, like many professional poker players with money stuck on Full Tilt, Andersen has had to step away from her computer and small town lifestyle to bring her game to the felt.

As part of her recent foray into the public eye, Andersen will be featured in the upcoming poker documentary, "Boom," scheduled for release in 2012. But there is no need to wait for next year to watch dmoongirl in action, because she will be our featured player on this Tuesday. 

To learn more about Danielle Anderson, read about her fascinating journey in her CardRunners Blog  and these recent articles: Perspective of an Internet Poker Player, by Scarlet Robinson, and Danielle "dmoongirl" Anderson Interview, by: Bill Seibert
