  • Surrender Summit -- an idea (2 replies)
    The American translator who was in that closed-door meeting between Putin and Spanky McTraitorpants is an official with the US Government. Haul his ass in front of the appropriate members of Congress and find out what was said. Sen. Shaheen's already calling for just that.

  • What's the mystery?
    It's obvious why Trump toadys up to Putin. He says the word a dozen times a day, collusion . Putin knows every sordid detail about went on between Trump's campaign and Putin and his operatives. That's what Putin has over him . (Maybe there's a pee-pee tape too) There's undoubtedly much more, l...

  • Best Online Poker App By Far
    PPPoker is the best app by far. Very fishy with super high VPIP's and rakeback offers. Full ring, 6 max, heads up, nightly tournaments with 5K guaranteed, bounty tournaments; etc. Definitely worth a look. Message me if you need any other info.

  • Pondering this one...could I get away?
    Hey Everyone, Im on the cutoff with AKo. Hi Jack opens to 3xBB, I re raise him, he calls. Flop comes K 10 5 rainbow I bet he raises I call. Turn comes Ace he goes all in.... So I have 2 pair with Aces and Kings and dude pushed all in about a little over pot sized bet at this point. Now unless he is just playing wild, only thing I really beat is a bluff. He could have a weaker ace but Im not really buying it. But its possible. He could have JQ for the straight but cause of pre flop and flop actio...

  • $1 NLHE STT: AJ 4 handed
    Hey guys. I just played my first sit n go STT with 9 players from my Freeroll winnings. It got down to 4 with the top 3 cashing. I got AJ off suit on the button with about 7BB left. Small blind had about the same and big blind had about 20 BB left. I pushed all in and got called by small blind who had AK suited. I lost. Should I have pushed all in there or folded and try to sneak into cashing. I thought I made the right call but I’m sure you all are much more experienced than me. Thanks.

  • I got Shit Canned from my Job
    So yesterday I got fired from my job. I had worked there just over one year, as a Customer Service Advisor for a large UK bookmaker in their call center Head Office. The reason they let me go was because I had been late six times, and also had six single day absences (sickness) since I started. To be fair two of those absences were self inflicted from killer hangovers, and I cited food poisoning as a reason. My argument was that they don’t even do sick pay for short term absence, so they were co...

  • A year passes by...
    A whole year has passed since I dusted off the computer and shared my poker experiences with the community. The main reason I haven't chose to share is simple, bad play. It's easy to write when you're winning but damn near impossible to recap your losses when you have no financial reason to share your downfall. After a quick and disappointing Colossus at the 2016 World Series of Poker ( QQ...

  • Casino Host Chips
    In the not-too-long-ago days of Las Vegas, your Casino Host was the man to know. They had the power of the pen and were generous with the RFB comps (Room, Food, and Beverage). They made you feel like a truly valued customer. Always happy to see you at their casino, they knew you were there to gamble, and gave little attention to today's obsession of tracking your play by computer and analyzing how much in comps you are entitled to receive. If you were there, you were playing, so you got comped a...

  • WSOP Tournament Chips
    I booked my trip to Las Vegas this week for the 48th annual World Series of Poker. I'll arrive on June 5th and stay 18 nights. I'm catching up on a few PFA podcasts and listened to one yesterday where Druff suggested that the WSOP should have more than 2 racks of tournament chips. These two items gave me the idea to write up a Rio/WSOP chip article. The first thing I did was to check the Nevada Gaming Control Board Gaming Commission website. Each month they publish the Chip and Token Report. Thi...

  • The Big and Small of It
    The Big We've all seen those Frisbee 500,000 and 1,000,000 WSOP tournament chips on the ESPN broadcasts. You've probably even handled a few oversized $1,000 chips in the pit or at the poker tables. These large chips are something of a novelty. They certainly stand out in the crowd. But did you know that a few casinos have produced oversized $1 chips? The standard casino chip has a diameter of 39mm. Oversized chips have a diameter of 43mm. Casinos generally order oversized chips as a means of pro...

  • Casino Chips with a Coin Inside!
    Most of us have played with clay, plastic, or ceramic casino chips, but there's a fourth type of chip that is slowly being phased out of play. These chips have a metal disc, or coin, visible in the center of the chip. Known as Coin-In-Center, or CIC chips, these chips have simply become too expensive to produce, lack the array of colorful design options that today's casino chips do, weigh more than the average 11.5 gram chip, and do not offer the sophisticated security features such as RFID, mic...

  • The Demise of the Snapper
    Well, by now you know that I've written several casino chip stories, so what on earth is a snapper? The $2.50 denomination chip used by casinos on the blackjack tables are known as a snapper. Most are pink, but I've seen colored snappers as well (insert jokes here). There are two competing stories on how snappers came to get their name -- both related to the table game where they're used. The Twin River Casino chip below will give you a hint. Wed, 28 Dec 2016, 06:33 AM
  • Limited Edition Holiday Casino Chips
    The holidays are here and I thought I'd share a few $1 casino chip that were produced in limited quantities just for this time of year. All are from Nevada, California, and Colorado to celebrate Christmas, New Years Eve, and Chinese New Year. As you might have guessed, the majority of the New Years chips were produced in 2000 for the millennium. Let's have a look at some of them, starting with Christmas. Wed, 21 Dec 2016, 06:54 AM
