As a blogger it’s often difficult to find things to write about or to relate what you want to write about into a poker theme. Fortunately for me, my writing sucks and I make no attempt to actually entertain my readers so . . . I’ve got that going for me.

But whoever writes the copy over at RakeTheRake deserves some huge kudos. I mean, this is literally one of the best copy writing jobs I’ve ever seen. And for once in my life I mean that as no disrespect for Mr. Katkin.

Or for just the text:

Recent news reports have shown that Barclays bank have recently announced profits of around 8% in their first half, which is perhaps proof that the financial crisis is easing off.

With profits coming from the investment arm of the company, perhaps we should be asking just what are they investing in?

Maybe it’s the Asian elite poker players from Vietnam who have been preparing for the Asian Poker Tour which is due to happen on the 12 August 2009?

With only a matter of days until this competitive event starts, commentators have said that there is one group of superstars that everyone should be wary of.
