Georg and Yortuk Festrunk — Squared

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.

Ahoy, Matey

Yes, today is International Talk like a Pirate Day.  I first met it when I started playing poker online.  That was right after Chris Moneymaker’s win; so, it would have been 2003.  It started in 1995; so I was late to the party. Read more…

The times they are a changin’

Dave’s final table was devoid of the paste on logos that were a secondary revenue source back in the good old days.

Times change!

Its Back

April 30th, 20131 comment

That would be poker.  With little hoopla, Station Casinos Nevada site went live at noon.  I was there and it seemed underwhelming. Not sure what I was expecting. It wouldn’t let me register — no surprise. It did let me watch. It said starting time was noon Eastern, but they were playing a few minutes early. Read more…

Prime Time

November 14th, 20122 comments

Not the 7-10 one but my poker one.  Today, managed to drop half a buyin with those hands FullTilt provides so lovingly.  But that is the full story.  I was messing with my other online account at the time.  It was the stock market one.  So, I really didn’t have my mind wrapped in poker goodness.  But that isn’t the prime time reference either.

Pass the Oil Can

November 8th, 20122 comments

I found out I am rusty — very rusty.   I played a bit of poker on FullTilt 2.0.  Yesterday, was more like a senior moment as I played some Stud 8B on a Stud Hi table — kinda -EV, what?  What can I say; I have done it in the past at times and I was rusty/excited to play a bit.  Today, it got better.  I managed to find the right table.

And The Winner Is

November 2nd, 20123 comments

No red carpet.  More like a guy from an alley saying, “Pssttt, hey bud.” to the poker community.   And, not a very sophisticated con either.  You can see the drool and the grab for your wallet is pretty obvious. Read more…

I played poker; I think

August 21st, 20121 comment

OK, don’t gasp; you’ll look silly.  There hasn’t been a lot of poker joy since the day that will live in infamy. I got linked to a CardPlayer article.  They had a free play site.  I figured, “What the hey.” and gave it a go.  Mixed feelings.  Not like the old days but not quite as bad as freerolls on other sites. Scant praise. Read more…
