WPBT – I Hate You People

This weekend marks the third WPBT Winter Classic in Vegas. Up until this event I had seen every Winter and Summer classic since inception (and even won one). And dammit if I’m not pissed that I couldn’t make it this year. I wanted to but I had just put way too may hours in an […]

How to beat anyone at Rock Paper Scissors

Contrary to what you might think RPS is not simply a game of luck or chance. While it is true that from a mathematical perspective the ‘optimum’ strategy is to play randomly, it still is not a winning strategy for two reasons. First, ‘optimum’ in this case means you should win, lose and draw an […]

During the WPBT blogger tourney I was seated with DoubleA’s who I’ve long respected and admired from his blog postings. I bought a copy of his book from him right then and there at the table. I’m only a few pages in I like what I see. I’ll do a full review once I’m finished […]

The 2006 WPBT Summer Classic II

Just a quick mini-update from the City of Sin. Continuing my travel troubles, I was supposed to be on a 9pm flight arriving in Las Vegas at 10pm. First they moved the gate and then they moved the boarding time. By the time my feet hit Las Vegas soil it was after midnight. This weekend […]

Poker Blogs

I wanted to do a quick follow up to yesterday’s post regarding poker blogs. I got a few emails from people asking what they should write about. First off, I have no idea what you should write about. The important thing is to find your little niche. I tend to post very infrequently about poker. […]

World Poker Blogger Tour Winter Classic 2 – Part 5

Sunday morning I awoke torn as to whether or not I should get an early start on the drive home or try and avoid traffic by leaving late. I decided to leave late. I meet up with Mike and we grab the IP buffet. It’s too late for breakfast so we’re greeted with the choice […]

World Poker Blogger Tour Winter Classic 2 – Part 4

I woke at 9:30 and the calls were already coming from folks who had gone down to register early for the tournament. I rolled in and Otis had already done what would become natural for him all day which was step in when I was unavailable. If I had to be on one side of […]

World Poker Blogger Tour Winter Classic 2 – Part 3

After showering I listened to the 14 messages on my cell (how did I sleep through the phone ringing 13 times? Oh yeah, I remember now . . . kind of.) and found out that everybody was up at the MGM for mixed games and Mike Fay from the poker room at Imperial Palace wanted […]
