Team PokerStars Pro and team manager of the Global Poker League’s Hong Kong Stars, Celina Lin, was a guest on the popular BBC podcast The Conversation where she revealed that she uses her sex appeal to gain an advantage at the poker table.
“I tend to wear lower cut tops the deeper I go in tournaments,” Lin stated and then proceeded to joke, “research shows that men cannot think as well under situations where blood may be going elsewhere.”
Joined by fellow poker pro Cat Hubert, who stated “I don’t think women are as good as male players, I think they are better than male players,” Lin agreed. Make sure you check out the reason why and the rest of the great talk to get a better idea of what makes these poker pros tick.

Posting on Instagram from the Aria Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, Dan Bilzerian has clearly not lost his propensity to brag as he apparently sits with at least $2 million dollars in chips on the table, with what looks to be a big blind of $1,200.
As always, his Instagram is filled with the latest from his “baller” lifestyle that has made him so famous.
Serbian poker pro Andjelko Andrejevic won his first ever World Poker Tour tile in Amsterdam this weekend after beating Tomas Fara to win over €200,000 in prize money and denying Anthony Zinno his 4th WPT Title.

Anthony Zinno who was playing for his fourth WPT title entered the final table with the third biggest stack. After holding the chip lead at one point during three-handed play against Fara and Andrejevic, he couldn’t hold on and was eliminated in 3rd place, earning €90,460.
