Poker stardom in reach

News-1 thedesertsun.com | Poker stardom in reach:
The 2005 World Series of Poker Ladies Event is this coming Sunday, and I'll be there. Last year, there were 200 women playing in it, and they expect the field to double this year.Unlike the WSOP Main Event, to which I won my entry fee, I'll be paying out of my own pocket to enter this one. One thousand hard-earned dollars on a 400-to-1 shot. Ouch. Big ouch. Normally, I'm a low-limit, low-risk player but this is a once-in-a-lifetime moment, my chance at poker stardom.

Clearcontext 425X528Wow. I wish I would have thought of that...let's see - fund the blog business by playing online poker? I think I'd have to be a tad better at poker to do that. I think I'll stick to writing about poker chips for now.

Poker champ from Connecticut details heist attempt at Vegas resort

I don't think getting dragged into a room with a ton of chips is a great feeling. Wild story!

Newsday.com: Poker champ from Connecticut details heist attempt at Vegas resort:With $150,000 in poker chips in hand, the reigning World Series of Poker champ Greg "Fossilman" Raymer of Stonington, Conn., knew the two robbers who approached him in the hallway of the Bellagio resort weren't looking to chat. "I knew it was a bad idea to let two criminals shove you into the room," Raymer said during a hearing Friday in Las Vegas. "I'm in fear for my safety, my life, my money, everything." Kevin R. Joy, 35, and Deem Cassim, 31, have been charged with attempted robbery and conspiracy. After hearing Raymer testify, a justice of the peace sent the case to District Court for arraignment.

Props & Poker

I've never understood props until reading this article so fully. Nice stuff.

LOYAL TO THE GAME - Los Angeles CityBeat: It’s high noon on a Thursday, the last week in May, and the parking lot at Commerce Casino is full. Two years ago, vacant spaces would have answered the adjacent Santa Ana Freeway’s steady rumble with a forlorn echo. Not now. Thanks to the global poker boom, business at Commerce – 10 minutes south-east of downtown – has gone through the roof. The packed, mid-week lot radiates an expectancy: a palpable, sweat-inducing, thrill-seekers’ buzz.

World Series of Poker license - Joystiq - www.joystiq.com

World Series of Poker license - Joystiq - www.joystiq.com: I refuse to categorize Poker as a sport. I absolutely refuse. I don’t care if it is on ESPN. If folkare going to argue about auto racing being asport, and believe me, they do, then to hell with Poker. Sport requires physical endeavour. Lifting chips and cardsisn’t enough. Don’t get me wrong. The poker bug has bitten me hard in a recent months. I’ve even started reading oursister poker site regularly. It still ain’t a sport, though.
