Quick Fire Friday Poker News Roundup

Friday again, dear Melted Felt readers and time for a recap of the week's hottest and most thoroughly sensational poker news in our irregularly regular spot - quick fire Friday. Without any further ado, we get straight to the news:

- Pokerstars Sign Andy Williams

This item took us back a bit, the world's biggest poker site are expanding their stable of celebs once more with the addition of aged crooner Andy Williams. We understand that the 'Moon River' will now be the default sound at final tables across the site. At the time of going to press we were not able to confirm whether crap poker site Bogdog would be playing "I Can't Get Used To Losing You" at theirs... oh, hang on a sec, David...

- Berlin Tournament Robbers Sentenced

With the Berlin EPT robbery one of few the genuinely exciting poker incidents of recent times, we are happy to report a conclusion to the trial of 4 of the robbers. In the pre-sentence wrap up the judge said, "Das Ist Mein Holsten Pills", "Vorsprung Durch Techniq" and "Mein Hut, der hat drei Ecken" before putting a piece of black cloth on his head and handing out some horrible penalties involving Sit N Goes. The ring-leader actually breaking down in the dock after being sentenced to 1500 non-turbo SNGs games to be played one at a time, with others in the gang getting between 200 and 700 double-or-nothings, harsh!

- World Series Of Poker Update

With some people winning bracelets, some other people winning bracelets and yet more people winning bracelets - you would be right to think that this years World Series of Poker is as dull as last - oh, and every other year. We urge you, dear Melted Felt readers, to think more positively. Yes we only have a couple more events to go before we can raise our glasses, smile broadly and thank whatever deity we worship that we did not have to listen to Phil Hellmuth go on and on about winning number 13 this year....
