One of the greatest poker hands ever?

High-stakes poker master Benny Spindler plays with the utmost confidence and boasts a great collection of achievements at professional tables across the world.

His style of play has garnered criticism from opponents, but it hasn't changed the manner in which Spindler operates at the table.

Fans of aggressive and exciting poker play will thoroughly enjoy the video posted below in which the German born high roller, Spindler, takes out some formidable foes and appears to defy any and all written or unwritten roles in the great game of poker.

In the clip, the shaggy haired Spindler faces off with top table talent Paul Foltyn, who bows out with the better hand with no way of knowing that the brazen wunderkind was bluffing his way to a dominant showing.  When the typical guidelines dictate that Spindler should be playing more conservatively and likely should have not proceeded beyond the early stages of the hand, he would go on to stun viewers and his opponents by prevailing.

Commentators James Hartigan and Joe Stapleton can be heard expressing their shock regarding the path that the hand takes, but neither broadcaster seems surprised that Spindler, who has built a reputation for going against the grain, continues onward beyond the initial bet.  In fact, early in the video, Hartigan refers to Spindler as a "raising machine".  That moniker proves accurate.

Spindler proves victorious by going all-in with a weak hand, forcing his last remaining opponent to fold.

In the end, a victorious Spindler is the only one that does not express some type of boggled response.  He's a force at the tables and this video proves why he is considered a remarkable player.

This Guy Speaks For All of You

This individual, interviewed by FOX 29 on Friday as the Phillies arrived back at Citizens Bank Park, said it best.

McGwire Stays Phony, Despite Admitting Drug Use

Mark McGwire made an effort to publicly come clean today, admitting to the world that he took performance enhancing drugs during his playing career. Steroids and human growth hormones were among the drugs that McGwire admitted to using. MLB Network featured a one on one interview with Bob Costas and McGwire on Monday evening. The broadcast was virtually garbage, thanks to McGwire. Ahead is a list of quotes from McGwire's interview. McGwire repeatedly stated his point of view that there were no dishonorable intentions involved when taking steroids, and that he was merely using them as a means to recover from varying ailments. When asked if he felt like he cheated... "As I look back now...I can see how people would say that. As far as the talent goes and the hand-eye coordination, the ability, the genetics I was given...I don't see it." "I did not take this for any strength purposes." Denial. Read on for similar B.S. He whined about the abuse he'

18-inning Marathon Results in Early Return For Doc

Righty hurler Roy Halladay , who was slated to appear in another rehab outing for Double-A Reading on Sunday will return to the big league club instead, following a marathon of baseball Saturday night at Citizens Bank Park. In Saturday night's (Sunday morning's?) 12-7 defeat at the hands of the Diamondbacks, the Phillies sent nine pitchers and two position players to the mound to make it through the lengthy affair. Starter Ethan Martin could not escape the opening frame, as he allowed three hits, three walks and three earned runs. Over the 4 2/3 innings that followed, Luis Garcia and Zach Miner allowed a combined four earned runs. The remainder of the relief corps including Cesar Jimenez , Justin De Fratus , Jonathan Papelbon , Jake Diekman and B.J Rosenberg combined for 6 2/3 scoreless innings while Sunday's originally scheduled starter Tyler Cloyd was called upon to toss five scoreless frames. As the need to use Cloyd approached, the Phillies d
