Seen last night outside the new cash game room at Binion’s:

The reason for this seeming disparity?

A. Bluff too deep and heavy for casual reading.

B. Bluff has superior distribution channels to keep its supply always well stocked.

C. National Finals Rodeo in town — not huge John Juanda fans.

D. First issue of Bluff with an article by Dan Michalski.

E. Rounder has a better rack.

    Bluff should have deposited some of last month’s magazine there if you want to compare racks…

    Also, Rounder’s website seems to be lacking a certain amount of updating…

    Well I’m sure it was that there was an article by Dan Michalski. It could have also been it was the the first issue with the Holdem Radio ad.
    I guess I will have to go back ad read your article. Was it any good? what was it about? Hey a better Idea, Can you post it here I’m just to lazy to go look for the Magazine.

    Interesting … it looks like their website — http://www.allinmag.com — hasn’t been updated since October, and their “current” issue available online is from July.

    Frankly, I’m not sure they ever got an issue out on time in their four years of existence. Bummer for Eric Raskin if what you say is true.

    F. Many articles in Rounder are written by Johnny Kampis
