Fox to Put on Big Game Wannabe Program
I logged on this morning and saw an ad stating that the "Big
Game" was coming to TV. Â When I first saw it, I thought
"Nice!Â That ought to be a good show. "Â Then, I
noticed a picture of Daniel Negreanu. Â My next thought
Sending up the Bat-Signal
Well here it is Sunday again, isn't it funny how it always
seem to come at the same time every week?Â It has been a
very tough week for Chip for a Chair. Â IÂ have been
holding onto these three books for a little over a week. Â
It hasn't gotten so bad, I am checking my emailÂ 5-6 times
a day just to see if I get a hit. Â I also posted the
books on a few different trade/barter websites.
Five Reasons Limit Players Make Better Lovers
While NL Holdem might have a lot of excitement, Limit poker
offers more stability and less variance. In some cases, it
offers a better long term profit potential depending on the
game. Giving it further thought, Limit players also tend to
be better lovers. Here is why:
I Am a Poker Dinosaur
When most people meet me in person, most cannot believe that
I am 34. Most think that at worst I am in my mid 20's. I
don't "act 34" according to most. This was once again
pointed out last weekend at a camp that I help out with each
Is it or is it not?

Â Â Â Â It is the age old question, is poker a
sport?Â There are many argumentsÂ against it being
so. Â First,Â there is no activity. Â Players sit
around a table and only make minimal movements. (Usually the
least amount of movement the better as not toÂ give any
tells)Â Some also contend you have to have a ball or some
other object to be considered a sport.
Daniel Negreanu Second Best Once Again
Daniel Negreanu can't seem to hold onto the top spot on
money lists lately. Carlos Mortensen is the new all-time
money winner for the World Poker tour after taking down the
Hollywood Poker Open in Lawrenceburg, IN. Where? What's
next, a NAPT event in Shakopee, MN? How about moving the
WSOP to Pamplin, Va. Actually, it would be funny as hell to
see the WSOP in Pamplin.

Phil Ivey Cigar Aficionado
I recently completed an exciting trip to Chicago and while
there my dad handed me a magazine to read on my plane ride
back to LA. It was Cigar Aficionado and on the cover, Phil
Ivey. I was surprised that 1. my dad reads Cigar Aficionado and 2.

Romeo & Juliet (II, ii, 1-2)
Â Â Â Â The Mouth, Kid Poker, Poker Brat, and Texas
Dolly. Â Mention these monikers and almost anyone can tell
you who they really are. Â It seems that it is almost a
necessity to have a nickname. Â If a player doesn't have
one when they start playing, if they stick around long
enough and have enough success they will get stuck with one.
Least Likely 2010 WSOP Main Event Winner
As you may already know, PJ's science team has figured out
who the next WSOP Main Event winner is going to be. Our
crack team has used a cutting-edge poker seismograph along
with previously unheard-of statistical methods to calculate
where the next winner is located and even come up with a
name Ron Amos. It's amazing what modern science is
Based on the geographical location of previous Main Event
winners, our crack team deduced that the most likely winner
currently resides in a garage in the small town of Quincy. Since Amos apparently doesn't live in a garage, some
supplementary calibration of the poker seismograph was
needed, but now it appears to work perfectly.
Chip for a Chair Update
As of today it has been two weeks since I started my
adventure. Â When I began I was hoping that it would take
off like wildfire. Â Â Seeing myself at the WSOP seemed
like a sure thing. Â Just as when you have any new idea it
burns in your mind like red hot embers.
