The Winds of Change in Poker Media, Isildur1 vs Jungleman

The winds of change seem to be blowing strong this month.  @change100 and @writerjen   have been let go from @pokernews  .  @kevmath  meanwhile, has moved on from Pokerati to join Bluff 
There are rumors of other changes in the poker media coming soon as well... 

On Monday, Oct 4th, from approximately 3:30pm to 6:30ish pm, Isildur1 and Jungleman12 tangled for some 100/200 NLHE action, that few seemed to report about! well screw that, if someone else doesn't do the job right, do it yourself. 
I caught the action, put it on livestream (one of the 6 tables) and you can watch it here "Isildur1 vs jungleman" Oct 4th, 2010 .. I left the music playing because I'd have to reset to fix my microphone and wasn't sure how long they would be playing (plus I was playing in a couple tournaments at the time)
I'll let Dan "jungleman" Cates sum up the session in his own tweet:
"good session vs isildur--+10 bis even while being stuck 10 at one point :) . Meanwhile nutsinho continues to own me on stars...
My own poker playing has benefited from the shift to MTT and SNG away from Cash.  I still play enough cash grind up some FPP for VIP tourney needs and silverstar status at minimum, but overall, have not been grinding cash like in the past.  Playing less often, more when I feel like playing it, has helped me avoid tilt almost entirely if I avoid playing when too tired.  I've noticed I only realyl tilt when I'm home alone as well.  I am fine in a live setting or with others around at home.  Strange.

Stay tuned for more breaking news.
