The Poker World Wants to See Mike Matusow Naked

Mike Naked 313x300
A few weeks back, WSOP VP Ty Stewart made a bold prediction that three women would win bracelets in open events.   With the recent success of women in major events, there is a good chance that this could come to fruition.   Mike Matusow isn’t so keen on the idea.   Mike has made the claim that if three women win bracelets, he will run down the strip naked.

2010 WSOP Trip - Day 3 - Devouring Helmuth

2 6 May 2010 , By: compncards
Day 3 of my trip was bluntly pretty dull.   Started the day in Oklahoma and drove to Texas.   Basically, Texas is pretty much open country outside of the city.   Fields for as far as the eye can see pretty much sums it pretty well.

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. I’ll do some maneuvering to get back on I40 by Wednesday latest.

Stick to what you know

In the last month I have had the opportunity to play a lot of poker.   I have played in cash games and tournaments.   But I have seen a trend, at least in my outcomes.   I have been killing it in the single table tourneys and doing not so well in the MTT.

Virginia Congressmen Lobby Against Legalizing Online Gambling

29 April 2010 , By: compncards
Looks like a couple of my congressmen want to start shit.   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.   (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

29 April 2010 , By: Frank Willburn
Sitting at the table you check your hole cards, in an instant they are burned into your mind.   Check, call, raise, fold.   All possibilities navigate through your head.   Subconsciously you feel out your opponents.
