This list does not discriminate, and bluntly includes almost any chick hostess who have ever presented a poker game. Why? Because the casting crews of Poker After Dark, The World Poker Tour etc. are just that good. For some reason, it is in the wondrous world of poker the most beautiful television personalities can be found.

I have gotten the opportunity in the last week to play quite a few hands of poker.   Two nights I played in home games and I had a bit of success, and the other two evenings I took part in pub league games.   It was in one of these that really got me thinking.   Every week at the world famous steak restaurant here in Amarillo, they have  a league game.

Law enforcement officials are finally starting to up their efforts on combating the growing poker bot problem. Yesterday they arrested a poker bot that appeared to be of Japanese make in downtown Macau. It will be summarily executed, Chinese-style, which is a good thing in my opinion.

Today most scholars I know agree that the game of Poker (as we know it today) was a gift from Squanto to the pilgrims of the Mayflower, but who gave poker to Squanto? You may be surprised to learn that the answer involves Möngke Kahn, Nostradamus and yes, Ma Gu, the Taoist Goddess of Hemp. In this multi-part, exceedingly long essay I intend to dispel some of the common myths regarding the much-disputed origins of poker and focus on hard facts. It will take you on a long and tedious (but no doubt important) journey through a timeline spanning thousands of years of poker history minutiae. But let’s start from the very beginning.
