    TUNICA RESORTS, MS — Rounder Club regulars Frank Nasufi and Tim Staraveci made the money in WSOP Circuit Event No. 3 ($300+$40) Wednesday.

  • Georgia comer wins WSOP circuit event

    27 Sep 2006

    TUNICA RESORTS, MS — After nearly going out on the bubble Tuesday night, Angel Word of Bowdon, Ga., came back to win the $500+$40 Event No. 2 Wednesday. The 30-year-old took down the ladies event at the World Poker Open last year and has cashed in three other major tournaments. She split the first- and […]

    TUNICA RESORTS, MS — Eric Crain, the 22-year-old who knocked me out Monday, won the $300+$40 first event Tuesday evening with 6-2.

    26 Sep 2006

    TUNICA RESORTS, MS (thanks Poker Shrink) — First, let me say the Gold Strike has the nicest looking poker room I’ve seen so far, and the friendliest staff.

    26 Sep 2006

    TUNICA, MS — They’re goofing on my poker playing (again) over at my former employer’s blog. Well, at least the inimitable Mr. Dallas is. When I played in a World Series event in Las Vegas this summer, the site had record traffic due to my entries and the hilarious reactions of my colleagues (aided by […]

  • Dubious WSOP-CIRCUIT deals

    24 Sep 2006

    TUNICA, MS — Stories of appalling dealing are already floating around the WSOP circuit event here, and the tournaments proper don’t even start until tomorrow. Normally I’d write off such complaints to the general grumpiness of that lot known as poker players, but then I witnessed it first hand. In the course of one baby […]

  • Baby satellites at the WSOP Circuit Event

    24 Sep 2006

    TUNICA, MS — What an odd place. If not for the nonstop casino billboards along Hwy. 61, you could drive through this part of the world and never realize it’s a gambling haven. Fields of flowers are only occasionally broken up by specs in the distance — Horseshoe, Gold Strike and the rest miles off […]
