Mornings are never fun. The best way to manage them – to get through them really – is to create a routine. For most people that means a shower, a commute, a coffee and spending the first 15 minutes of your day procrastinating before getting your workday started. Here at BLUFF, we think The Ante should be a key part of your routine. Every weekday we bring you all the poker news you might have missed and get you ready to take on your day. Carpe diem.
Dan Bilzerian Released From Jail, Sued by Model
On Wednesday Dan Bilzerian might have had the most Dan Bilzerian day possible. First, Bilzerian was arrested at LAX on what turned out to be a bomb-making charge in Nevada. After spending the night in lockup, Bilzerian was eventually released only to find out that Vanessa Castano, the model he allegedly kicked in the face at a Miami nightclub over the weekend, is suing him.
Bilzerian seemed to take it all in stride though, posting a somewhat cheeky response on social media early Thursday morning.
Jail… Let’s not do that again pic.twitter.com/2h7YmjYf3n

Vanessa Selbst Takes Time with Brian Koppelman for ‘The Moment’
Rounders co-writer Brian Koppelman has one of the internet’s most popular podcasts, The Moment. The one-on-one interview show has featured people from all walks of life but this week’s guest comes straight from the poker world: Vanessa Selbst. It’s definitely worth a listen.
WPT Founder Steven Lipscomb Launching New Reality Show
Many give Steven Lipscomb, the man who launched the World Poker Tour and brought hole card cameras to the masses, a lot of credit for helping launch the poker boom. Many don’t give him enough credit.
Now, no longer associated with WPT, Lipscomb has his eyes on a new project. After speaking with University of New Mexico business students, Lipscomb talked with Albuquerque Business First reporter Dan Mayfield and dropped a little nugget about his next idea – and he’s got his eyes set squarely on the White House. Sort of.
“We’re launching ‘Born to Run.’ It’s ‘American Idol’ meets politics. We’re selecting a Democrat and a Republican, and we’re going to let people cast votes like ‘Idol,'” he said. “Except, in the end, we’ll put both candidates in the New Hampshire primary in 2016.”
If you’re into some of those awful poker puns that mainstream media like to use any time they talk poker, read the full Lipscomb interview.
