Prince Makes New Orleans WSOP Final Table

Come on, not the real Prince, AKA The Guy with a Symbol for a Name, I’m talking about Jean “Prince” Gaspard (top right in photo).  You know, the guy who’s at almost every major event always smiling, always social with tournament cashes a mile long.   I like Gaspard because he’s nice and if my memory […]

Run Good Run Bad

Saturday was not my best day in poker while playing the PokerListings Run Good Challenge WSOP Style.  Having KK, AK, JJ and AJ a few times didn’t exactly make it my worst day; however, I didn’t exactly get paid off on those hands.  Well, maybe once or twice.  Like doubling my short stack but it […]

Will Ferrell SNL Hosting Requires A Posting

Last year I was into Chaka and Sleestaks.   Last week I was into Will Ferrell hosting the SNL finale thinking of Celebrity Jeopardy.  SNL delivered.  The SNL Celebrity Jeopardy skit had Norm McDonald doing his gum chewing Burt Reynolds.   The penis might be mightier for Sean Connery,  but Janet Reno no-showed to her Dance Party.  Also missed…Dog Show.  Apparently, I’m the only person in the world […]

HB-222 Death May Keep Girls Stripping

 James writes a comment asking if there’s truth to Governor Perry blocking the Texas HB-222 (AKA Triple Deuce), which is patiently waiting to be heard.  Unfortunately, for us math geeks, I have heard this is true.  Sadly, this will ruin Texas poker player’s attempt in legally earning WSOP buy-ins. Meaning bankroll building. The bill is like it’s number…222.  It’s nice to flop a […]

Celebrity Apprentice Rivers An Ace

Annie Duke clearly pulled off what I would want from an employee.  She raised more funds, pulled things off after the rug had been pulled out from under her. She showed far more class than the high maintenance gossip queen.  Yet, despite Duke’s success, Donald Trump awarded the trophy to Joan Rivers who has long ties with NBC.    Amazingly, Rivers won after the offended design […]

Joan Rivers Trashes Celebrity Apprentice Annie Duke

Lack of time prevents me from watching much TV.  However, with the Joan Rivers / Annie Duke trash comment spreading through the poker world… I watched the final episode of Celebrity Apprentice.  After all, Ms. Rivers was kind enough to call all attorneys, doctors, mathematicians, programmers, Duke graduates and even teachers who consider themselves poker players… trash.  The poker community is so […]
