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

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

than an actual fact. *Now it's a fact. *

such as chess and bridge.
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.
A moment in time
Sitting at the table you check your hole cards, in an
instant they are burned into your mind. Â Check, call,
raise, fold. Â All possibilities navigate through your
head. Â Subconsciously you feel out your opponents.
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
