Derek Webb: The Man Behind 3-card poker


ns-gaming24_ph_0500624041_part1.jpg

This is a pretty cool article on Derek Webb - the man behind 3-Card poker. We love the game and find it relaxing compared to the perils of Crazy 4 Poker.

Bettors know and love the three-card poker table game for its fast action and big payouts on monster hands.

But for inventor Derek Webb, the process of bringing the game to market was anything but easy.

Webb, who splits his time these days between Las Vegas and Darby, England, likens the process of getting casinos to license the game to "pulling teeth," and notes that it was one of the toughest challenges of his career.

Being a big fan of the Amazing Race it's a treat to see two poker pros (hot poker pros) in the next show.

After two months of speculation, CBS has finally confirmed what the poker world has suspected all along: poker pros Tiffany Michelle and Maria Ho will be competing together as a team on the upcoming season of the competition reality show “The Amazing Race.”

Photos, bios and video of the two women went up on the show’s official website on Wednesday, along with those of the other eleven teams competing in the latest installment of the race. Ho and Michelle will be facing off against a wide array of people including a married couple who work as yoga instructors, members of the Harlem Globetrotters, a singer/songwriter team and a contestant who has Asperger’s Syndrome.

Will Poker Be Legalized in Colorado?

These guys hope so. Besides being arrested for a $20 buy in earlier in the year - they are still going strong. Great article - and let's legalize poker nationwide.

Reporting from Denver - Let's say you're playing poker and you need one more diamond for a flush. The dealer turns a card, reveals a diamond and you win the hand. Was it skill or luck?

The answer is affecting the fates of people across the country accused of breaking anti-gambling laws -- people like Kevin Raley of Colorado.

As an engineer, Raley finds that the mathematics of poker come easily, and he's pretty good at keeping a blank face. Reading other people, though, is something he's always working on. "It's something I'm better at today than I was five years ago," said Raley.
