A River Runs Through It

September 19th, 2012 2 comments

Well, the movie did honor trout fishing and I was a trout fisherman and fished Montana.  Subsequently, I fished online poker until the wise Federal Government saved me from a life of sin.  I didn’t know I was like the rebellious brother in the movie until a low life Senator from Arizona and a scum sucking Iowa Congressman chastised me.  Today’s river remarks though are about last nights poker extravaganza on ESPN.

I watched the WSOP last night.  Striking!  Left me wondering why any of us ever play poker.  Yes, it was edited to show the “drama” of poker; but really. Read more…

One Drop’s Final Drip

Well, the latest incarnation of “The Big Game” drew to a close in magical fashion.  I am certainly not alone in drawing on the magical illusion.  Antonio “The Magician” Esfandiari played smart and didn’t encounter the dread cooler.  Smart can look like magic. Read more…

My last post included a few memories of the past.  If you visited “Old Vegas”, one of the photo ops was getting your picture taken by Binnion’s display of a million dollars.  That was a biggy.  Today, is the final table for that One Drop thingy.  Times change.

I don’t care for the term. It is denigrating and that is hardly a successful business practice. It was coined by some who consider themselves elitists.

World’s Best?

May 29th, 2010 No comments

Well, I took a look at PokerListings coverage of the WSOP. The site says it has the “world’s best poker deals” and that must be all in the fine print. I don’t think they are either getting folks discounted rooms at the Imperial Palace or offering rakeback. Read more…

The Admiring Throng

Yes, that is singular.  And funny. Oh, throw in honest for a change.  It started with a comment. Luckily, I get all emailed to me.  I was taken to task for being dumb.  I'll cop to that too but I'm not so sure here.  Seeing that most will never see the comments from last July 12th blog, I figure I'll move us both here to prime time.
