18 years ago I lived a scene that looked just like this. I practiced on that same field. The school is in the background. There isn't a single thing that I can see that has changed.

Except my gut and hairline, of course.

18 years have really flown by. 15 years from now my son will be on his way to college. That is both a lot and not enough time.

Nostalgia can be a bitch.

Brace yourself

I am preparing to whore. Feel free to avert your eyes or delete from your RSS. 

Consider this fair warning.

STB's new drinking buddy

Death Comes in an Electronic Box


Matthews, NC – August 18, 2008: PokerTek, Inc. (NASDAQ: PTEK), the industry pioneer and
worldwide leader in automated poker tables and related software, is pleased to announce that Excalibur Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas is installing 12 PokerPro tables. Excalibur is both the first casino in Nevada to install automated poker tables and the official field trial site for PokerPro in the state. Pending final regulatory inspection and approval, Excalibur plans to open the new room Friday, August 22 at 6 p.m.

"We are delighted beyond words that an operator of Excalibur's quality is opening a 100% PokerPro poker room on the strip. It is commentary on how far PokerTek and automated poker have come in such a short time," said PokerTek's CEO Chris Halligan. "The acceptance of the game has grown substantially in the last year and continues to grow as our footprint expands."

"We continue to hit major milestones," continues Halligan. "We've opened a successful 20-plus table room in Montreal, a beautiful 12 table room in Michigan, a high-end 12-table room in Atlantic City and now 12 tables in the gaming hub of the world, Las Vegas. With more than 230 PokerPro tables currently installed worldwide, we are ready for the Nevada market."

"I've run poker rooms for 20 years, and I can't wait for players to see what Excalibur and PokerPro
will offer them," said Vito Casucci, PokerTek's Western Regional Director and former poker room
manager. "We're going to have a great daily tournament schedule, tremendous player promotions and, more than that, we'll be laying down games that manual rooms just can't. For example, our Pot Limit Omaha games will be getting out 30 hands per hour. That is unheard of for a game as popular as PLO, and only PokerPro can offer that kind of speed."

"I am so excited that automated poker is finally going to exist in Vegas," said professional poker
player Clonie Gowen. "PokerPro is an amazing way to play the game. The speed and accuracy beats
any manual table. You will find me in the Excalibur's poker room from time to time and I challenge all poker players to try this."

Excalibur Hotel and Casino, which opened in 1990, is a wholly owned subsidiary of MGM
MIRAGE™ (NYSE: MGM). The property provides an inviting atmosphere of hospitality through a
myriad of entertainment, fine food and comfortable accommodations. The resort features 3,981 guest rooms, five themed restaurants, the Tournament of Kings Dinner Show, the all-male revue Thunder From Down Under, the "Larger than Life" comedy of Louie Anderson and more than 100,000 square feet of gaming excitement. The convention area provides more than 12,000 square feet of meeting and banquet space."

Hellllllloooo Poker

So I don't post as much as I used to, nor do I post as much as I'd like too. I spend too much time with twitter, via Twitterfox.

So the WPBT twitter addy. Feel free to send me things to put up there. If you would like to broadcast a tourney or something I am more than willing to assist. Also for those of you with friends that don't care that you just flopped quad Aces and lost to Lewis-Wilbanks straight flush you can send messages to @wpbt and then only those who might care would get the message. Especially useful for utilizing Twitter in lieu of yahoo chat or other, more pedestrian means (that I just noticed some people are using again and didn't tell me).

So I have been playing quite a bit online lately. Mostly limit during happy whore on full tilt. Break even for the most part. But noticeable improvement in my limit game. Well not improvement really, just rediscovering where the raise button is located. That and better hand selection. I moved up in limits because that seems to be the universal cure for the "wtf its only $xx. Which was my easiest most identifiable leak. My next leak I am trying to solve is relying on a tight image and a hand that is beat to ram through a win against someone that I think I can get to fold.

I did this live the other day and it wiped out 25% of my profit on the session.

Until next time, go fuck yourself.

A Prayer to Iggy

Poker, our Father, You redeemed us and made us Your children in Chips.
Through Iggy You have saved us from WoW and given us Your Divine
life of flops.
By becoming more like Iggy online, may I come to share His
glory in Vegas.
Give me the peace of Your bankroll, which this world does not give.
By Your loving care protect the rockets You have given me.
Open my eyes to the wonders of the hammer that I may serve You, with a check raise.
