1. The headlines

The biggest winner of the day was BetrThanPhil. As Pauly McGuire reported for the Blog, poker is a game that favours those named Phil. The Canadian was no exception.

Read the report of that win here.

We also have an interview with Niall "Firaldo87" Farrell coming up on the blog later today. Farrell talks about his win in SCOOP 3-H, and the problems we'll have finding a picture of him not looking hungover.

Results of that interview, and image search, coming up on the Blog later today.
