Lucky Mofo

This guy beat us all when he got the girl. What can I say but congrats to Glyphic. And your wife looks amazing in the pictures which everyone can see Here. Once again, a male blogger marries up.

Getting Your Fix

I have a notion that gamblers are as happy as most people, being always excited; women, wine, fame, the table, even ambition, sate now and then, but every turn of the card and cast of the dice keeps the gambler alive - besides one can game ten times longer than one can do any thing else.
Lord Byron

Everyone in this community gets their fix in different forms. Some get it via Stud, some no-limit hold'em, some old school people still get their fix off of no fold'em hold'em. What ever your poison is I highly suggest your start to surf the blogs that people link up. In all seriousness, I think you can learn a lot from people in this community. I just have been amazed as of late at the things I have been reading and don't get all high-brow and think it is only the bloggers that have been around for a while that can teach you something. Serious, I have learned a lot from some new bloggers to the community. So start to dig or as us DJ's like to say, I'm digging in the crates today.

In closing, I suggest you stay away from the junkies who will play any game or prop bet. Yes, at the next blogger gathering you can find Ro-Sham-Bo for 100.00 no problem. I'm sure someone will even do a post on the strategy and mental toughness one has to have in ro-sham-bo and I suggest you read it because you will probably learn something from it.

More Vegas Pictures


The lion at the MGM which for some reason I thought was cool. Yet, when you really look at it...well the thing is rather cheese.


Picture of a few of the boys tossing the cards around. You can see EasyCure there giving me the finger and the Sore Loser thinking.


A picture of more of the boys. You can see Drizzy giving his best KG face. Yes, the poor kid has been in Minn too long.


This had to be my favorite picture of the weekend in Vegas. Serious, this use to be my favorite drink when I use to drink. I saw this and thought it was awesome, for those of you that don't know, Crown and Coke is a huge drink in Texas. In Cali we consider that stuff top shelf.


I felt like Joe Speaker when I took this picture. Serious, he would have gotten all emotional and shed a tear if he were here.

I'm kind of like a playa' but more like a pimp

Everyone I know that hangs with me wants a pimp name and some flow. I can't give you the flow, baby. You either have the skillz or your don't. Yet, what I can give you is your very own pimp name. We will start with this online one and if I don't like your pimp name given by the site I will make sure and give your yours own. Welcome to the game...and step one is HERE! CHURCH!

And Baby make sure and leave your name in the comments.

Giving A Tad Credit

How do I say this...well let's be honest with one another, people come to this poker blog because it kicks ass. Nuff said.

Yet, there are times and very few times (may I say) when other bloggers step up and write something that makes The Rooster kind of cock his head to the pun. In any case, I leave you with these FOUR kick butt articles that some bloggers wrote and I think that the thousands that come here should read. Serious, if you want to improve your game I suggest you read this. Yes, that includes you Mommy who is stuck at the 2/5 no-limit game.


People always ask me, "Rooster, how did you get the Skillz To Pay Da Bills?" Well let us just say that my check doesn't come on the 1st or 15th of the month like Bone Thugs might have you think. Sad thing is that a only white boy from the midwest got that. I think BG is an undercover brother. I digress. Well I tell people to read good stuff like these posts and your game is going to improve. Serious, a lot of what I learned was from books, blogs and getting killed at the stud table when I would try to move up. Yes, even The Rooster has gotten broke a few times.

In closing, read these posts over and over again. Or if you are trying to improve your stud game make sure and read SS1 where Chip talks about stud. I mean you have to read that thing about 20 times to see the little things to improve your game. I think I have read that chapter like 40+ times or so and I contiue to read it. I want to get into that guys mind and pick here and there. I just want you to know that I don't get any money for mentioning Chip and SS1. Serious, as you know this blog doesn't shill because it is a pure blog and I write for the love of it and maybe to inspire someone. There use to another blogger that went by the credo but something happend to him and he lost his way, he no shills for some site and here is his shilling blog if you want to visit potty mouth.

Kicking It Old School

It has been a while and I have been working on my big announcement still. I think I have all the details tightend up and it should be ready for launch within a few days. Keep your eyes wide open because you will all want to jump on the boat.

In any case, as most of you know, I don't play online anymore because I just don't play well there. I'm more of a cash game live player. Doh, I spoke too soon because I got spanked this past weekend in A.C. What can I say, you raise, get a re-raise and four callers and you pop it again...guy re-pops and everyone calls. Wow! Of course this is what you want when you have Aces but you know it is going to get ugly...Nuff said. I don't want to pay anyone for a bad beat story. Oh, did I mention this was a 10/20 game. Doh!

I digress. As I was saying, I don't play online anymore esp. with blogger because lets face it, you are all B-List Bloggers and B-Level players. But I don't mind pimping some great tournaments that are happening in the community where one can really challenge their skillz.

Who's Playing?

Here is the list of the 2007 WSOP events. I was wondering if anyone was going to make this a personal challenge. I know there is a Oakie that I would like to see play in at least one event. And if memory serves me correctly he was looking for a challenge for this coming year. How about getting that bankroll up for an event.

If any of you are playing in one event if you can leave me a comment so I can follow your progress it would be greatly appreciated.

Rooster of the week

We have a New Rooster over to the right. Yep, we have another picture of the Grey Kelso Stag. A thing of beauty but a temper like no other. I wouldn't have this Rooster around as a pet. The can get a bit upset and dig their claws into you if they aren't held a lot as a baby. Just in their nature I suppose. Well enjoy him because I'm going to get back to switching them up over there.

Great X-Mas Gifts

Pauly Drama never ceases to amaze me with his good heart. Serious, I hope that all of you get to know Pauly Drama the way I do. For example when I told him, Pauly Drama we as a community have raised a lot of money for good causes. Pauly Drama stopped me in my tracks and said, "you are kidding me, right? We can do so much better as a community, there is so much money we could raise for Payton and also Easycure's fight against cancer." I was a bit taken aback by the force of his voice and he seemed to be a bit agitated and put on tilt by my remarks. Yet, I think he was really speaking from the heart and not being a ball buster. In any case, today I got this in the mail from Pauly Drama who by the way is covering the Aussie Millions. I wanted to thank Pauly for my great pair of boxers with The Rooster on it.


Also, I can't forget my Mother and Father who have always supported my poker. They have never hidden the fact that their son loves to play cards and will hit the grimmy places his Dad use to hustle pool games for when I was a kid for extra cash. Nope, they just see it as who I am and have always accepted me for it. Thanks Papa y Mami te mando un gran abrzo! Here is what they got me for my x-mas tree.

Today Is Our Day! Long Live Tony Romo!

I put a bet offer out there to Brandon and he didn't bite. If the Cowboys win he would buy The Roosterinto the main event. If he won then The Rooster would buy him into the Main Event...I heard nothing.

Sure it is a big bet on a QB that has never been in there before, but the truth is...that Mexicans like Tony Romo and The Rooster thrive under the spotlight. Since Brandon didn't take that bet I took it off the table.

I was willing to tone down the bet with Brandon. That if the Cowboys (America's Team) win that he brings that cute girl he was at the Super Bowl with to the next Vegas gathering. If the Cowboys lose (which they won't) that I would take him and said girl to In and Out Burger at the next Vegas gathering. The Rooster Crows...KawKaaaa!!

I then went over to the second CrapHawks fan I know, Easycure. Yep, I put a 12-pack on the game. Still no response from Easycure so that bet will be off the table soon.

In closing, as you can see these CrapHawk fans have no faith in their team.

O.K. I'm leaving to watch the game

Major Announcement Coming Soon!

I'm currently working out something that might shock some of you. I can't let the details out at this time but it would help my financial situation and I could really dedicate more time to this little poker site. Coming soon!
