This is where I am right now. It’s a weird time because when Joey and I are chilling out, I’m still the one that gets the occasional look. He’s going to be the biggest poker player since Doyle. The only two people who have won more money then Joey in a tournament were Hachem and Raymer. And Joey was already a rockstar. So it’s a weird time because all these people we come across don’t even realize that in four months they are going to be watching tv with their friends and they’ll say, “Hey! I know that guy!”. It’s awesome.
When his episode airs, a significant percentage of the population is going to know who he is. And now when he tells us all that he’s really good at poker, people are actually going to believe him.
I got a room out here and will probably be playing a little poker tonight at the Hooters new cardroom. Life is good. 🙂
