Chip Tricks By 21 Ace

It's a little heavy on the heavy metal, so you may want to turn down your speakers (or turn them up), but this video of chip tricks is pretty good. We especially liked the "Eman" stack shuffles.

The College Poker Scene


We recently came across a series of articles at about the College Poker Scene. The latest in the series talks about what is going on at Arizona State University. We can only wish that we had a resource like this for our college days. Maybe then we wouldn't be paying so much in college loans.

Here's a bit from the latest article:

Last year, the Arizona State Student Poker Club held online tournaments via Full Tilt, with buy-ins of $20. The tournaments were held privately, but any member of the club was allowed to play. The last tournament was held on November 6, 2006 and although there were over 40 entrants, it is unclear whether or not the club has any future online tournaments scheduled.

If you're excited to be a part of the Williams Campus Housing and want to play poker, then the Williams Campus Housing Poker Night is just for you. The event takes place on September 27, at the Union Cooley Ballroom. Play starts at 5pm and is scheduled to last until 10pm. Unfortunately for some, this event is listed as a private event.

Head over to for more.

Pamela Anderson And Sexual Poker Favors


Would you give sexual favors to clear a $250,000 poker debt? Pamela Anderson would.

Jackpot.Co.UK has the Story:

The notorious former Playboy model Pamela Anderson has revealed she is dating a poker professional after he offered her an ‘indecent proposal’ to clear her poker debts.

Anderson, who was playing poker for the first time in Las Vegas, was down $250,000 (£125,000) when the unnamed poker star offered to wipe the slate clean in return for sex. Anderson initially turned him down before giving in to his offer.

Now we are wondering... just who was this mystery poker star?

Don't forget you can see Pamela Anderson as a Vegas Showgirl at her official site, and in a magic show with Hans Klok at Planet Hollywood.

Food for a Poker Night


One of those sacred duties of hosting a poker night, is providing the room with everything they will need to have a good time. This means things like having a good table, having chips, etc. But it also means providing food and drink. And while you can rely on your players to come with some food, its best to be prepared yourself. And lucky for us, Home Poker Tourney has some straight up ideas on poker vittles.

Here's a snippet:

Yeah, like I'm Martha Stewart! Did you really think that I was going to slave over a hot stove all day for you? The food for my poker nights consists of peanuts, pretzels, and make-your-own-sandwiches. My biggest claim to fame is that I offer not one, but three different types of prepared mustard!

Traditional poker food would include a first course of peanuts and pretzels. This is almost a must and no poker host would be caught dead without them! These appetizers should be made available throughout the entire evening and you should also supply water, pop, and coffee to wash them down. Poker main courses usually consist of something like sandwiches, pizza, chili, stew, baked beans, ribs, hamburgers or hot dogs. It's almost impossible for the host to get away from the game so it is best to have something that is pre-cooked or easily and quickly prepared. Buffet style or anything make-your-own is good since it frees up the host from many responsibilities. Make-your-own sandwiches, subs, or tacos usually work out very well. Pot luck is for schmucks - we're men, we're playing poker, please don't expect me to bring a tuna casserole!

Read on to get some recipes for Salsas, Hot Wings, Nachos, Pigs in a Blanket and more!

Poker Night Light


We know how it is. You've been out all night working the tables. You stumble into the room, tired from too much caffeine, and a bit of adrenaline. As you meander further in, you smack your shin on the coffee table. If only you had a Poker Night Light! Then you would be able to clearly see the old beer bottle in order to doge it. And at under 20 bucks, it sure beats a trip to the ER!
