5 Great Movies About Playing Cards

maverick_movie.jpgOK, maybe all these movies aren't ABOUT playing poker and other card games, but they certainly do feature the game heavily. I was going to call this "5 Great Casino Movies" but then I would've felt like I had to put Casino on the list, and I can't call that movie "great" with a clean conscience. Take that, DeNiro - you're nowhere near as cool as James Garner and Jodie Foster, who are apparently playing poker next to a bong in the above poster.

So Its great to hear that the show goes on, and apparently its going on Fox Sports!

Casino City Times has the story.

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.

World Series of Poker Extravaganza!


The 2007 World Series of Poker is well under way, and you can keep track of all the action through the magic and wonder of the Internet.

We begin our tour with a stop at the PokerNews WSOP Live Reporting Page. This page is fantastic. You can get event standings, and even chip counts in up-to-date time. Its not exactly "real time" but its pretty darn fast. Each event is essentially treated as a blog, and the reporters just regularly update the info on the event! Brilliant! There is even a video gallery of all the action!

Another great feature of the site, is the "Feature Hands" section. This section replays great hands in a "sports graphic" sort of way, so that you can see just how the action unfolded. A simply AWESOME feature.


That not enough for you? Fine, no worries, you can head over to the Official WSOP site, and get plenty of live coverage there too!

To begin with, there is a ton of video coverage, including daily recaps for every day of the tourney. Of course, there is a tournament standing update page, which gives the standings for each event. On the main page, you can get to all of the various blogs covering the tournament. And finally, there is the video coverage of all of the final tables.

If you really need your know whats happening live, you can, for a premium of $50 a year, get the Live Video.

With all the tools at your disposal, its pretty hard to miss all the action going on at this year's WSOP. Maybe next year, they will add a remote-play feature, so you can even PLAY the tournament via the Internet.

World Poker Tour DVDs


Lets face it, poker is huge these days, and its in no small part thanks to the World Poker Tour playing on television. Word of mouth garnered the show a huge following, and its easy to see why. You get to watch the drama and thrills of high stakes Hold'em, and get some intelligent and whitty commentary to boot.

If you have not seen the show, or if you missed some shows of the past, the time has come to catch yourself up.

Pick up Season 1, Seaason 2, or Season 3, and soon you'll be quoting Mike Sextant and Vince Van Patten with the best of 'em!
