Celebrity Poker Player: Oprah Winfrey

Oprah Winfrey has spent decades showering her audiences with lavish gifts and with this being her final season on the air, Winfrey is going out in grand fashion. Part of the plan was to unveil Oprah's favorite things for 2010 this past week on her show. In most cases, Oprah has been sensitive to the wants of her audience, but over the years, the one group of people she has ignored in these giveaway shows is online poker players. Millions of online gamblers have walked through the studio doors for Oprah's show, but none have ever left with a gift involving their favorite hobby.

This year was no different. The audience received many different gifts, ranging from low priced gadgets, to high priced luxury cruises. Watches and jewelry are always found on Oprah's favorite things list, and this year was no different. A Phillip Stein limited edition with fifty-eight handset diamonds priced at $2,475 was on the list.

Çelebrity Poker Player: Justin Bieber

Justin Bieber is young but that didn’t stop him from gambling. He seems to love a game of poker. As Gabe Saporta of Cobra Starship (who opened for Justin on tour) said:

“A hotel we were staying at had a casino. Justin was too young to go into the casino but he wanted to play poker. So he had one of the dealers come up to his suite and have a poker game in his room. He got flushed out by one of his tour managers and was bumming out about losing 200 bucks. He said at the start: I’m not going to lose more than $20.”

Movie critics have the responsibility of reporting to the public which movies are worth their time and which movies are hardly worth renting. It is not common that one will find critics to agree on which movies are good and which movies are bad, but movies goers tend to overlook the harsh criticism and see for themselves what a film is all about. Sometimes it ends up being well worth the money spent, and sometimes not so much.
