"It's a kinder, gentler Iggy now," says I to GRob at the poker table in GVegas.He raises, insults with aplomb while running over the table, and retorts, "Nature abhors a vacuum."Now go read Mastodon Weekend deconstructed.

"Again, I find the blogs about poker hands extremely boring."Doyle BrunsonAmen, Doyle, amen.That's why Greg Raymer mentioned me first way back in the day when asked what poker blogs he read. Back when I mattered.I just cracked open an ice cold Guinness and it sure feels like old times. I have a ton of out-dated poker notes and I'll be damned if I don't feel like cranking em all out. But just to

Played some in the main game this weekend at the Hollywood. Loser $1 after 6 hours. Didn't play very well -- felt like I was the soft spot which was disconcerting. Maybe cause it was all old guy nits. Took a runner-runner beat early, but fought back to even, so no harm, no foul. Looking forward to playing again.Anyway, after the Bengals magnificent loss today, I thought I'd share a local

Date: Thu, Sep 3, 2009

Just saw this at Wired magazine:--A move to scuttle legislation outlawing online gambling suffered a major setback when a federal appeals court set aside constitutional and other legal challenges to the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act of 2006.A three-judge panel of the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals brushed aside assertions that the act (.pdf) breached the privacy rights of gamblers

Hey there, gentle reader. I'm still here.The end of August was when I had planned to return to business as usual here. And now it's September 1st and I'm ill equipped, as Otis would say. Aw hell, there's plenty of time to get back on the bus and bang worthy poker blogging out here like the good old days. I naively thought that going part-time at the ad agency would free me up, but instead, I'm

I'm just not that bright.But he followed up with another text telling me his score from winning the Indiana State Poker Championships in the 7 card stud event. Hilarious.The Rooster

Poker In Indiana

Date: Fri, Aug 7, 2009

Quick poker update here. I completely spaced on the opening of the Indiana poker tournament championships at the Hollywood Casino in Lawrenceburg. Apparently the opening $300 buyin attracted 300+ monkeys and crackers and was a resounding success.So I found my way there yesterday and was dismayed to only find 50 players signed up for the $500 buyin tourney. WTF! Turns out there was a scheduling

"Poker is getting tougher these days, I shoulda worked harder during the boom."Fast EddieI'm sure there's many of us who can relate to the above sentiment. While catching up with him this weekend, it's funny to look back six years ago when I started this humble poker blog. While playing in his illegal game out in the backwoods of Morrow, Ohio, I was already a veteran of online poker and had to

I've read quite a bit of media coverage about this past weekends UFC 100. And media coverage ABOUT the media coverage and mainstream media and acceptance versus tolerance, for and against.Assimilation into modern culture thanks to the outlaw nature of the sport, our cultural desensitization to violence, and mostly, TV exposure.I started this blog in the fall of 2003 and pretty much documented
