Royal Flush Poker Clock

Its always hard to find gifts for the poker lover. They usually already have their chips, and cards, and even cases. And poker tables? Forget it, you're not getting them THAT big a gift. And so we like to bring to you some poker themed items, as they can be a nice accent to your poker lover's decor, or lifestyle.

pokerClock.jpg

Enter the Royal Flush Poker Clock. This is no ordinary clock, with some chips slapped on the face, this is a really interesting piece of art. It hangs in a long vertical strip, and the clock itself is situated on the top card. What it lacks in functional readability, it more than makes up for in taste and decor.

BlackJack Extreme

As we were perusing the news this morning, we discovered an intriguing story about a Hollywood movie mogul trying to spin a new casino card game he invented into the next Texas Hold'em. His game, called BlackJack Extreme sounds like an intriguing mix of poker and blackjack, with plenty of bluffing, and a chance to play the "house".

Here's a bit about the story behind this new game from KansasCity.com:


[David C.]Thomas and Internet marketing guru Mark Koetting have formed BJX Entertainment LLC and are simultaneously pitching BlackJack Extreme as a TV card-game show, an online or live casino poker room game and an electronic game joining slot machines and video poker on casino floors.

“This is very ambitious to move simultaneously into three major industries,” Thomas admitted. But he’s confident that, given a chance, the game will catch on.

“It’s fast. It’s fun,” he said. And, he added, BlackJack Extreme is even more sociable than standard blackjack or Texas Hold ’em.


And for more on the game itself, head over to the BlackJack Extreme website, where you can learn to play, watch a sample game, and see a video that gives a flavor of how a TV show might work.

Welcome to the sickest game in town. We took the best of poker, added the best of blackjack, and came up with a brand new game. If you have the heart to bluff, the courage to make big plays and the brains to stay two jumps ahead of your opponents we’ve got the game for you. It’s blackjack so the rules are familiar - you can surrender, hit, stay, double and naturals pay 3 to 2. It’s BlackJack eXtreme because everyone takes turns being the dealer. When you’re the dealer, you can bluff, fold and hit any soft hand. When you’re the player you can go all-in but take as many cards as needed to make the best hand. And card counting is allowed. Learn to Play – Play to Win.
