We Got a Winner!

I decided to start playing again on Paradise, going for the WPT shooting stars seat. Played the $100 last night and bombed out. But tonight I played the $25 rebuy and took it down… so now I’m bound to San Jose in March to try and take home the $1m prize at Bay 101. Awesome…

Young Guns

Congratulations to my good friend Scott Fischman! He just took down the WPT Young Guns tournament for a $25k seat against some pretty heavy competition. David Williams. Thunder Keller. Joe Cassidy.

The Five Worst Bad Beats of All Time

I’ve played a lot of poker… I’ve seen my fair share of four-outters, two-outters, one-outters… runner-runner straight draws, runner-runner quads. And I’ve definitely heard more than my fair share of bad beats. I don’t usually tell bad beat stories anymore, but there are some that are unusual enough that I feel like they deserve telling.…

This Ain’t No Crazy Pineapple!

So here’s a pretty funny story Rob told me when we were talking about bad beats. “Yeah, so get this bro… I’m sitting at the 2-5 NL at the Borgata the other week. The dealer whips out all the cards. I’m first to act under the gun, and I look down and see.. ace… ace……
