True-ish Texas Poker

by , Aug 16, 2006 | 11:01 am

Here’s the thing about poker in Texas at present — it’s difficult to think big. Think too big, put together something too cool, and someone will try to put a stop to it. It’s a real shame, too … because as a society, we might be better off trying to finance schools or focussing on keeping the terrorists away. But alas, such is not reality … and the latest victim of (misguided?) anti-poker sentiment is True Texas Poker with TJ Cloutier.

So say event organizers, who have further delayed/restructured their made-for-TV spectacle. I tend to believe them, too, because for the past year they have almost constantly had to be shifting gears to appease anti-poker powers. Here’s the latest on the status of their tourney(s). Considering that no one has had to pay a dime to win a seat, all is probably well. Not sure how his sponsors feel, but regardless, Karridy/TJ looks to have moved to a poker-entertaining Plan B C D … and he’s still got a long way to go before running out of letters.

Thanks, PokerDonkey, for the tip!
