Scott “URnotINdanger2” Palmer talks in a new and a long interview about his life after Black Friday and much more.

Palmer says he misses playing online poker, and that he has played some online poker after Black Friday in Canada.

Palmer is still waiting for his Full Tilt Poker money that he has not seen after the Black Friday hit. He doesn’t want to reveal the exact amount in the interview, but says that from what he has heard “only one person could have more money on there.”

“That kinda sucks and if I don't get that money you will not see me at the Nosebleeds again. Unless I run really hot of course, and if I get the money back I will almost certainly be back on the Nosebleeds again. It's a huge amount, but I don't want to say the exact amount.”, Palmer tells.

He also talks about other online poker superstars, like Daniel “jungleman12” Cates. According to Palmer, Cates is the “smartest person he’s met” and he has helped Palmer a little bit with his game and vice versa.

PokerStars launches new games

There were some new games added by Full Tilt Poker recently, and now PokerStars has also announced two new games - 5-Card Omaha and variant “Courchevel”.

According to PokerStars Blog, the 5-Card Omaha has the same rules as the regular Omaha, but the player is dealt five cards preflop. The game has the same requirement of playing two from the hand and three from the board to make the best five card hand.

Courchevel instead plays the same as 5-Card Omaha, with the exception that the first card of the flop is dealt before the “preflop” betting round.

Liv Boeree and Kevin MacPhee break-up

Poker couple Liv Boeree and Kevin MacPhee had been dating since the beginning of 2011, but now it seems that the couple has broken up.

The break-up was actually reported by Kevin MacPhee himself, who had a lot to say on Twitter:

• So… @Liv_Boeree leaves for the Ireland for St. Paddy’s for the weekend & comes back & breaks up with me.
• People that lie just never stop lying. People that cheat never stop cheating. People don’t change…
• The summer I had at the WSOP was the worst of my life because @Liv_Boeree broke up w/ me to make a reality tv show & hook up with Galen.
• She tore my heart out then & for some reason I got back together w/ this manipulator only to have her do it again. #heartless
• To those of you saying I shouldn’t air this on twitter.. keep in mind she made a reality tv show this summer about us breaking up. #fairgame

Boeree on the other hand has not yet commented the break-up in any way on her twitter.
