Jim McManus is an Antique
I just came back home from a short trip to Richmond. Before
I came back today, I checked out a multi-vendor thrift store
to see if I could find any items for cheap either to offer
in my online store or to add to my collection. I went into this one vendor section that was clearly a
collectibles and antiques section. This vendor didn't quite
understand the concept of thrift store as he was easily the
most expensive vendor in the shop.

Bodog to Offer the Equivalent of TV Poker With Hole Cards
Bodog now has a feature that allows you to request the hole
cards of players at your table 24 hours after a hand is
completed. The company decided to do this to address the concerns of
players regarding collusion. However, I like the statement

who could no longer use software allowing access to data on
how you play your game against Bodog players died down the
only credible complaint was the threat of collusion,"

Poker Backers Should Be More Like Auction Hunters
Recently, I have begun to take part in local auctions. At
these auctions, I have come across numerous interesting

hold onto to gain future value. Part of my ability to find these items is based on knowledge
of the products and then acting according to that knowledge. After attending a few of these auctions, I started trying to
make parallels between auctions and poker.

Bodog Indicted - Are We Surprised?
By now, most of you know that Bodog. com and its founder
Calvin Ayre was indicted as well as three other defendants. This indictment didn't really shock or surprise me, or
really anyone that has followed online poker's legal battle
since last year. The real surprise comes in the fact that it took them 10
months to file this indictment.

What Was Doyle Thinking?
I'd really like to know what Doyle Brunson is thinking. I'm sure that many of you by now have read Doyle's recent
Blog[http://doylebrunson. com/blog/] post but for those of
you that haven't, he essentially says while Howard Lederer
and Chris Ferguson made "terrible mistakes," he doesn't hold
any ill-will towards them and thinks they should be welcomed
back into the poker community. The fact that Doyle comes out supporting his friends doesn't

I was contacted a couple of weeks ago by someone that wanted
to be my redhead of the month. While she looked to be a bottle red, she offered to do a
