PimpingI love it when people are like...Rooster, why do you pimp other folks? I'm a nice guy? In any case, here is the skinny.
Did anyone see Phil Ivey court side at the Lakers game last night? He must have taken Jerry Buss for some money.
Is it me or is The Rooster still the defending WPBT Champion? I can say that until next winter.
If you have some time go over to Jamie's at Wall Street Poker and read about his trip to California poker rooms...great tales indeed. A crew of us went to Jamie's pad to get him out for a beer when we were in his hood...to no avail...he was in Cali. StB seemed amused that a game would take place there. I even told him there was a real poker table where the cards were dealt. In any case, this is my favorite line from his trip report and playing cards in South Central:
“It’s daylight on an early Monday Morning. What better time to go to Compton? All the gangstas are sleeping!”.
Once again, I'm glad I'm not a writer/artist type. You have to love this blogger and his love of emotional pain. Dear God the dark places this guy visits. Makes me thank god that I'm not an artist or writer. I love being a hack.
I hate to pimp them again, but they have the best one, two, and three combo in the south Up For Poker is talking poker and ponies. Remember this...read the post CJ put up about Casino Drive. I looked him up on ESPN and they have a clip of him pulling away from that pack. I'm smelling what Luckbox has cooking. No new pictures of the home and Mrs. Luckbox?
Of course you have to go see Tripjax for he put up some cute pictures of his kid.
Also, might want to hit GCox for his write-up about his daughter. GCox is da man!
Some people like Pauly's poker blog which is good. But if you haven't gone HERE to his regular blog you are missing out on funny stuff...Viva White Gold!
Also, besides Change100 is there another blogger who has made two WPBT final tables in Vegas? Someone said CJ but I'm not sure about that. I'm just asking because when I win the trophy next winter I want to be the second or third person to reach a final table more than once.
