Aviation Club

July 24, 2009

So I have a trip to Paris coming up…and where would any self respecting poker player go but the Aviation Club?

It will be interesting to see how the games play, but my guess is the poker learning curve is flattening worldwide due to training sites, and online play being mixed internationally.

The Aviation Club was created in 1907 by a group of…you guessed it…aviators.

Not to worry, I will definitely have my sweet poker shades available for play.  GL me.


Sick Shirt – Johnny Cupcakes

July 19, 2009

Johnny Cupcakes is rad – cool shirts, cool brand, and a crazy cult following.  I really like this shirt, trying to figure out how to get one without flying to Boston to watch a movie.

Watson’s shot at the British Open

This guy is amazing…he always does well at the British Open.

I really hope he wins…6 holes to go, might as well.

Ivey – You da f’cking best

July 19, 2009

Perhaps the best thing that could happen to poker, Ivey in the November 9. A shot to legitimize the game…it’s more than just luck. He’s a lot mysterious, and certainly regarded as the best to play the game. A fearless, rich, degen…who only wants one thing: to win.  For the guy that crushes the highest stakes games, and will play anyone, at any game, at any time…I’d say him winning this tournament would certainly help make poker perceived as more of a skill game.

I can’t wait to see how high he starts playing at the craps table. He might just break Vegas.  The headlines will read: Ivey wins $1B playing craps at the Wynn – steve wynn transfers ownership….or something like that.  

It was funny to hear when Ivey was asked by reporters: How will you deal with the oncoming media storm?  Ivey: I’m going to change my cell number and leave the country.  (Pause, followed by awkward reporter laughter)  Ivey: I’m serious.

Where’s Ivey?
