Meet the Teacher
Team PokerStars Online member, Felix "xflixx" Schneiders was recently filmed by PokerStars for a short eight-minute video about how poker slowly changed his life. Schneiders, dubbed as "The Teacher" in a blog titled The Teacher: Not just another basement kid story due to his love of teaching players through instructional videos, was understandably nervous since he is a self-described introvert.
The video starts with Schneiders discussing about how he met his wife Vanessa and how they were a match due to some of the "nerdy" stuff they were both into.
Schneiders then talks about how teaching other poker players some of his wealth of knowledge about the game helped him become less introverted and more connected into society.

Mike Sexton's Concerns About the World Series of Poker
Partypoker pro and World Poker Tour (WPT) commentator Mike Sexton recently expressed his concerns about the World Series of Poker (WSOP) in a blog titled Poker legend Mike Sexton calls out the WSOP!
Many of his suggestions were related to eliminating the November Nine, providing many reasons why this concept doesn't put the players first.
Sexton goes on to talk about why he feels that WSOP events outside of Las Vegas, such as Australia and Europe, should not be included in the Player of the Year race since it places many players at a disadvantage.
