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. Â I was surprised that 1. my dad reads Cigar
Aficionado and 2.
What is in a name?
"That which we call a rose
Â By any other name would smell as sweet"
Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â
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

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

burns in your mind like red hot embers.
If I could....
In contests throughout the country, whether they are beauty,
scholarship, or any other contest, contestants are often
asked the same question. Â "If you could have dinner with
anyone, living or dead, who would it be?"Â Usually the
contestant gets all mushy and names either mom, dad,

Are You a Successful Poker Player?
What is a successful poker player? A couple of months back,
I was talking with someone who was trying to figure out
whether they were a winning player. They went into how many
big blinds they had won per hour and how much money they had

corners of Macau, but lately they have become common even in
Las Vegas. Iâm talking, of course, about poker bots
â mechanical monsters who roam casinos around the world
disguised as ordinary poker players. They can read minds,
