Seriously, I gotta pack and get my butt to the WSOP … also to-do: get car fixed and drop off Diesel Fighting Championship tickets at Sadler & Carter. In the meantime, here’s some of the poker you should know about:

About the same time Aces was getting raided in Dallas, more than 70 police descended upon the CINCINATTI CLUB in SCOTLAND, where a handful of there off-duty law enforcement co-workers were playing.

While coordinated attacks could be a sign of AL QAEDA, interesting that shortly after the bust, police let the players resume their game.

Folks in HOUSTON and LAS VEGAS are taking note of the impact OKLAHOMA INDIANS are having on TEXAS gamblers.

Which probably has something to do with the formation of the TEXAS ASSOCIATION OF POKER PLAYERS, which looks to help in the fight to bring Texas Hold’em home.

In MINNESOTA, amateur poker bars are uniting in the form of a league. Sounds like fun … and better prizes. PAUL BARRETT is likely salivating.

Gotta love the POLACKS, as they beat the AMERICANS in PokerStars’ WORLD CUP OF POKER. (Pokerati struggles with which team to play for in the future.)

Race-car driver TONY STEWART loves poker … time will tell whether he’s the BEN AFFLECK or JAMES WOODS of NASCAR.

Meanwhile, in CANADA, they’ve called off the Poker Camp for Kids. But in BOSTON, a library presses forth with BUBBLEGUM POKER — kids playing with candy instead of chips.

Seriously, get the sense that poker ain’t goin’ away this half of the century?
