October 2nd, 20142 comments

Do you remember Georg and Yortuk Festrunk?  Well, it may not be names that spring liltingly to lip.  You might remember them better as Two Wild and Crazy Guys on SNL.  Yeah,  aka Dan Aykroid and Steve Martin.  Not fellows you’d project to a final table, poker-wise.  What they do seem to have is a style that was obvious in the polyester era on downtown Vegas streets.

That's what Falstaff and I competed for over on PokerWorks. We got very good at glamming onto some bit of news and plagiarizing innovatively rewriting.

I very much enjoy reading his CrAAKKer site. I think the attraction is that of opposites. He does get going on his d-bag events on a regular basis. Where he is exercised over our human foibles, I find them endearing. The only true benefit I see for him is improved circulation. Read more…

The Big 50

That can be traumatic. It is a vague memory for in a week and a day it will be 20 years in my rear view mirror. So this isn’t about me. It is about WSOP coverage. Frankly, it wasn’t a real part of my last month and whatever. Read more…

July 2nd, 2010No comments

In the poker blogging community there are written and unwritten requirements.  The written ones are on backs of napkins. The others are grokked. They come and go.   This one seems to have come. Read more…
