2014 November Niner William Pappaconstantinou (a.k.a. Billy Pappas) is used to winning….just not in poker. The 29-year-old is best known for his impressive foosball credentials, which include five US championships.

Pappas just completed a foosball tournament in Europe when he decided to fly to Vegas for the 2014 WSOP Main Event. What ensued was a run that nobody could have predicted as …

The 2014 November Nine will reconvene on Nov. 10th to compete for a $10 million first-place prize. One notable thing that stands out about the field is how many different countries are represented, with Brazil, Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Sweden and USA all featuring a November Niner.

As the oft-declared “World’s Greatest Poker Player,” Phil Ivey’s fame knows few bounds. Ivey has been featured in numerous mainstream magazines and news outlets. So it should be little surprise that the 10-time WSOP champion recently did a feature with Playboy. Like most articles covering Ivey, the Playboy piece spends a fair amount of time rehashing his rise from an Atlantic City-area teenager to the extremely wealthy poker player that we all know today. Of course, you can read such info in just about any Phil Ivey bio. What makes the Playboy feature stand out, though, is some of the …
