Bits & Pieces

I am always amazed (and I shouldn't be) that my pageviews go up this time of year.  I think I went through most of the WSOP season and did not post once.  Do I still like poker?  Yes.  But since the "reputable", and I use that term very loosely these days, poker sites are either under investigation, under indictment, or just plain shady, I have played little poker lately.

Why don't I just find a home game or visit the Poker Room that is 20 minutes from my house you say?  Well, I have this little employment problem.  I have no job, so I have no money, so I have no bankroll.  Yes, I could play with my kids, but I don't feel like losing on purpose and I don't feel like dealing with them getting upset when they lose.

I did get to see some of ESPN's coverage of this year's WSOP.  I kind of liked it.  It was quieter, smarter, and not "in my face".  I wasn't told that the team name from every college was "The Rambling Wreck".  It was poker, almost the way it is actually played.

Can anyone name Penn National Gaming's top earning casino?  The answer is:  Hollywood Casino in Charles Town, West Virginia.  I won't bore you with the numbers, if you are interested read "The Journal" article here.

Enjoy the Pokery Goodness (for me)!
