Running Bad in Las Vegas
To say that my first week in Vegas has been unforgettable is
a bit of an understatement. Iâll start with the gaming aspect. My first full day, I
decided to play in cash games for the better part of the
evening downtown. The table I sat down to had a lot of money
on the table for the limits and a lot of bad players.

The Poker World Wants to See Mike Matusow Naked
A few weeks back, WSOP VP Ty Stewart made a bold prediction
that three women would win bracelets in open events. Â
With the recent success of women in major events, there is a
good chance that this could come to fruition. Â Mike
Matusow isnât so keen on the idea. Â Mike has made
the claim that if three women win bracelets, he will run
down the strip naked.
2010 WSOP Trip - Day 4 - Viva Las Vegas
So I wake up about 9:15 A. M. this morning. I refer to
anytime in the morning as âstupid oâclockâ in
the morning, so being up this early is a bit unusual for me.

2010 WSOP Trip - Day 3 - Devouring Helmuth
Day 3 of my trip was bluntly pretty dull. Â Started the
day in Oklahoma and drove to Texas. Â Basically, Texas is
pretty much open country outside of the city. Â Fields for
as far as the eye can see pretty much sums it pretty well.
2010 WSOP Trip - Day 2 - Chasing My Father's Past
So today was Day 2 of my cross country trip. Started in IN
an went through part of Illinois before getting to MO. I saw
St. Louis and the arch in the distance.
My 2010 WSOP Trip Begins
My cross country excursion to the 2010 World Series of Poker
has begun. Headed out earlier in the evening and had to
actually take a bit of a different route than normal. Due to
the flooding in Tennessee, I cannot use 40 through the state
so I ended up going I81 to I64. Iâll do some
maneuvering to get back on I40 by Wednesday latest.

Virginia Congressmen Lobby Against Legalizing Online Gambling
Looks like a couple of my congressmen want to start
shit. Â Bob Goodlatte and Rick Boucher, both delegates
from Virginia have been circulating a letter around congress
urging members to reject any attempts to repeal the UIGEA
and vote against any bills that legalize online gaming. Â
(Yes, I live in Virginia. )
One of their points is that online gambling will bring all
the trappings of a brick and mortar casino into homes and
college dorms across the country.
Papa Plays Some Poker
I have always said that if you want to feel like a young man
at almost any age, go play in a stud game. I was playing in a $3 - $6 Stud 8 or Better game in Los
Angeles in December 2008 when this older Asian gentleman sat
down with his wife kind of hovering around behind him. He
very slowly took out his money and bought into the game. Most of the people at the table knew who he was and called

A WSOP Dream Realized
Imagine that you are a small town poker player. You aren't a
pro player. You aren't even a part time wannabe pro. You
work in a small town as a foreman for a general contractor.
