Poker's social media guru, Jay "WhoJedi " Newnum will be bringing his recent tournament winnings to the Live at the Bike table.

Jay "WhoJedi" Newnum

WhoJedi is a familiar face in the poker industry. He started his poker career back at the start of the millennia, just as the Moneymaker Affect was taking hold on poker enthusiasts across the world. He is most known for his work as the industry's foremost expert in all things social media. Through his company, WJ Media Marketing LLC, Newnum is the go-to-guy for social media consultation and boasts a clientele that includes Joe Hachem, Jonathan Duhamel, Ben Lamb, The WSOP, Epic Poker, Deepstacks Live, Purdue Sports, Ricki Lake and Matthew Perry, just to name a few. In addition to his social media business, Newnum has had a successful poker media career, having been employed as a reporter for CardPlayer, Poker News, the World Series of Poker, Epic Poker and Savage Tournaments.

Jay Newnum has been a guest commentator on the show before. You may remember him from his appearance back in August of this year, when he sported Live at the Bike headphones and sat with Bart Hanson in the booth. 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.

Newnum will be joined at the table by the Mega Millions Series II runner up, Greg Sessler, and the AM-790 KLAC Petros & Money VIP to make for an interesting Friday line-up. 

Commentators for Friday's show will be Bart Hanson and Adam Strohl. Tune in to  at 7:30 p.m. PST on November 11, 2011 to watch Jay Newnum show off his poker skills.


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.
