Why so sad, Daniel Colman??

The 23-year-old poker player won more than $15 million in the Big One for One Drop tournament in Las Vegas but you’d never know it by the look on his face!

Even after laying down his winning hand and beating Daniel Negreanu at the final table, Colman kept his poker face on and offered up almost no reaction!

Except maybe a look of complete and utter misery!

Taxi Driver Finds $300K Cash In Cab! And Returns It!

Filed under: CrazzzzyGIFs

When Las Vegas cabbie Gerardo Gamboa looked in the brown paper bag left behind by a passenger who had been in his cab, he didn't find what he thought were Christmas chocolates.

He found $300,000 in $100 bills!

While a lot of people might have been unable to resist pocketing that much dough, Gerardo made it to the top of Santa's Nice List by turning in every cent! He says:

"My dignity is not for sale, and that's the way I am. That's the way our parents taught us when I was a kid."

So who was the lucky rider who got his fortune back?

"Lucky" is actually a dead-on description. Gerardo's cab company Yellow Check Star described the mystery man as a "famous 28-year-old poker player" but wouldn't say which one!

So was Gerardo rewarded for his honesty? Find out …AFTER THE JUMP!!!

Watch Brad Pitt Killing Them Softly In New Trailer

Filed under: Brad PittFilm Flickers

The greaser look isn't that attractive, but for some magical reason, Brad Pitt pulls it off!

Along with the slick hair, it looks like he pulls off a pretty good role as a hitman in the upcoming crime drama, Killing Them Softly.

Pitt plays an enforcer who investigates a sloppy heist during a mob-protected poker game and from what we can tell from the trailer (above), he doesn't have too much trouble finding the guy.

At least the guilty parties are going to get offed by one of the hottest men to ever grace the screen!

Pitt's good looks aren't the only thing this movie has to offer though. Killing Them Softly features organized crime veterans like Ray Liotta and James Gandolfini as well as the talented, yet relatively unknown Scoot McNairy. Let's not forget Oscar nominee Richard Jenkins either!

Jason Somerville Comes Out, First Openly Gay Pro Poker Player!

Filed under: Gay Gay GayInspiration

Jason Somerville Gay

Congrats, Jason!

Jason Somerville is awesome at poker. So much so that he's a professional poker player and makes a living off of it.

Now, it turns out, Jason is gay! He's just come out officially — which makes him the first prop poker player to be openly gay!

We're so proud of him!!

So how did he do it?

In a long, well-written blog post:

Of all the diversity and variety that the poker world contains, though, there is a noticeable lack of openly gay poker professionals. Vanessa Selbst is a top tier player, a brilliant woman and an amazing person, but other than her, I’ve never met a single gay professional poker player, nevermind a high profile one. There’s plenty of speculation – Daniel Negreanu, Tom Dwan, and a few other big name players who are actually very straight have received plenty of attention from the gossip forums as being potentially gay for having a few mannerisms simply perceived that way.

They’re not gay, though, and no man who is a well-known pro in poker is open about it. I’m not quite sure why exactly that is, and of course everyone is entitled to be as open as they want to be about their personal lives, but for there to be zero high-profile openly not-straight men in poker seems…bad. Archaic. Reflective of a community that isn’t open to all, when we actually are one of the most open communities in existence. Maybe it’s not because of something unique to poker, and it’s just a relic of the old-school mentality when the world’s default mindset was at best “don’t ask, don’t tell,” but, come on, it’s 2012. Whatever the reason… zero??

I’ve struggled with how to discuss this, with how to balance my desire for privacy with the fact that I do want to be myself publicly – and the fact that I think it’s overdue for a guy to be open about it in poker. I’m no Daniel Negreanu, the royalty of real talk, but I do pride myself on saying what I think and simply being who I am; but I suppose you could say in the past being “truly myself” has come with a bit of an asterisk. Privately, amongst friends, I can say I’ve been doing that for some amount of time – but publicly, and in poker, that hasn’t completely been the case. I haven’t exactly always been where I am now, though, and haven’t really been ready to share my story publicly. Privacy reasons excepted, that won’t be the case any more.

Very well put!

We hope this can be an inspiration to those struggling with the idea of coming out with their full identity. We know it's hard, but it's worth it, and we can stand together!!

Good luck in the tournaments, Jason!
