Targeting Your Audience

Monday, February 26th, 2007

I love watching High Stakes Poker on GSN. One of my favorite show, certainly my favorite poker show out there. I have just about every episode taped and when I want some pleasing background noise I’ll throw in a tape. I’ve been on something of a High Stakes Poker jag lately and I’ve noticed something…

The World Series of Poker…In England

Monday, February 26th, 2007

Harrah’s just announced that the inaugural World Series of Poker Europe will be held in London from September 6-16. Am I the only one who thinks that this is, like, a really horrible idea? From a brand dilution standpoint? Unless Harrah’s plans on moving the entire WSOP from Vegas to London next year. Which ain’t…

I Got Nuthin’

Friday, February 23rd, 2007

Haven’t been writing. Well, that’s not true. Been writing a TON. Just not here. I apologize. Some nice stuff has been happening lately. Y’know…nice. Let’s leave it at that. But there are days when I find myself smiling even after I read Bill’s latest posts. Just a couple of poker-related things so I don’t lose…

Journalism, or Graphic Design?

Monday, February 19th, 2007

We’ve seen reports like this before; college kid starts playing poker, gets in over his head, disaster ensues. You’d think a story like this wouldn’t be “news” anymore, unless the kid went bonkers with an AK-47. Or started dating Britney Spears. Don’t get me wrong–gambling addiction is real, and people who have problems should get…

Still Alive

Saturday, February 17th, 2007

Sick as a dog. Brought a cold back from Florida and after it took a brief hiatus, it clobbered me yesterday. I’ve been meaning to do a little photo dump from Daytona, but not today. Not now, anyway. A few random observations: Does anyone have a clue how to play AK? I’m so gunshy with…

We Few, We Happy Few, We Band of Bloggers

Sunday, February 11th, 2007

Being in Florida and partying like a rock star (got ice cream last night!) I missed this comment left by Julius_Goat in response to my post about busting with the Hammer during the Hammer Day blogger event. I made mention of Henry V’s speech before the battle of Agincourt, and Mr. Goat went and ran…

Everybody’s An Expert

Thursday, February 8th, 2007

Back in our hotel room after a swim we turn on the TV and see the news that Anna Nicole Smith has died. In the middle of the usual baseless speculations CNN puts Dr. Sanjay Gupta on the screen explaining what paramedics do when they find someone unconscious and unresponsive on the floor. Dr. Gupta…

Live By The Hammer…

Wednesday, February 7th, 2007

And you die by the Hammer. But what else could I do when I’m dealt 7-2 during this evening’s Hammer Day tournament? I had a nice stack, over $7K, when I faced a raise whilst holding the Hammer. Fold? Fold? NEVER. GONNA. HAPPEN. I pushed in my mighty stack. Got called by AK. Felt like…

Daytona Thunder!

Sunday, February 4th, 2007

My buddy Mark is going to a medical conference in Daytona on Tuesday. He says, “Man, I shoulda told you, we could’ve split the room, hung out at the pool, had a blast.” To Expedia! Suffice to say I’ll be down in eff-ell-aay on Tuesday. While I’m bringing my laptop and I’ll be working down…

I Used To Be Disgusted, But Now I Try To Be Amused

Sunday, February 4th, 2007

Every day brings more and more bad news to the poker community. It looks like folks who had money with Neteller might never see it again, as the Feds have decided to call dibs on it. Part of an alleged criminal enterprise, don’t you know. And then this past Friday Mansion Poker decided to leave…
