Hoodies for Homeless – Part 1

December 20, 2007

We wabbit huntin….

Just a quick update on our Hoodies for Homeless Giveaway in San Francisco: 

Finding ‘qualified homeless people is hard’ – The plan has been to give 25 hoodies, to 25 homeless people, for the 25 days of Christmas.  The reason for this was not to be overly sympathetic or charitable to the homeless, but rather gain a little perspective into what it is like to not have a home and how they got in the situation to begin with. 

Since only 25 hoodies were going to be given away, Matt decided there had to be a few qualifications… 1. No cracked out folks (for two reasons, personal safety, and the lack of ability to have a conversation).  2.  No groups of people (to avoid some people in the group feelling left out).

This makes finding 25 homeless people, slightly more difficult, especially in the allotted time of 2 days.  Factor in 85% of homeless people have a mental illness, then you add in the SF weather, downpour for 1/2 of one day, and you have an incomplete giveaway…

Matt had to jet off to NY for the holidays, so the rest of the work will get done in January as belated gifts.

In part 2 of the story, we’ll go into some detail on the stories these people have, along with add a few pics of the adventure…stay tuned.

Poker Road – Thumbs Up!

December 11, 2007

We know you are all thirsty for some ‘pokertainment’ and it just so happens that Mr. Joe Sebok and company, aka Greenbok Productions (Also known as Barry ‘the Bear’ Greenstein and his son Sebok), are producing some highly entertaining content available on the web.  The site is called www.pokerroad.com.

Be sure to check out the radio show called Big Poker Sundays featuring the smart and unfiltered Harallabob and the quick wit of Scott Huff.  They talk about everything except poker strategy i.e. gossip, sports betting, random scuttle.

There are some interesting video interviews on ‘Inside the Poker Mind’ with Sebok’s girl, Amanda Leatherman (pretty cute, look out sebok we got some lookers on the PROP team and ain’t scurred) with Negreanu and JC Tran.

Nice work guys.  Making the poker world a more interesting place, one stupid joke at a time.

High Stakes Swings

December 10, 2007

From the highstakesdb.com:

FULL TILT POKER
We’ve had alot of action in November and  the player who gave us most action was Gus Hansen. He started the month down about $500k but he managed to come back, he won almost $2 million in just a week and his totalt results for the month was +$1,3 million

We didn’t have so much Texas NL action this month, we had some insane sessions with the player Tie53, he had some sick swings, was down about a million but then he won a couple of sessions so his total loss was “only” -$340k on the sessions we monitored. The winners on Texas NL on FTP was Genius38 (+$354k) and Trex313 (+$299)

PRIMA
Still pretty calm on the prima network in November, but it’s always some good action on the $50/100 tables and copi_rules (+$234) and kriga (+$173k) was the winner on the sessions we monitored.

LADBROKES
We had alot of action on $25/50 and $50/100 on Ladbrokes this month and we had another danish player in the top. Pokergirl1 won $247k and most of this money was on $25/50.
