Surprise WSOP Sighting

by , Jul 11, 2009 | 4:05 pm

Seen on a coffee table in Pokerstarzistan’s WSOP embassy (aka Joe Hachem’s “Champion’s Lounge”) … a new edition of All In Magazine (where I got my poker-media start):

Huh. We kinda figured “the world’s leading poker magazine” had lost the All-In lasts-longest bet to the energy drink. I guess not. Expect some reverse payouts in a few dead-or-alive props, too.

Lacey Jones Stars in Rap-ish Music Video

Sometimes, even I’m not sure what makes the category of rap music anymore, but this tune called “All In” is poker-centric and the video features the lovely Lacey Jones. What more could you ask for?

“All In” is done by Pigeon John, The Grouch and Eligh, and seems to err on the side of the rap music category. Good tune, actually, as far as poker-related songs are concerned, and far better than the overplayed Poker Face by Lady Gaga.

The embeddable video should be available soon, but in the meantime, click here to view it.

The Non-Calm Before the Storm

Parties Abound With WSOP Main on the Horizon

by , Jul 2, 2008 | 3:53 pm

The WSOP party season has begun… I’ve hit two of the parties this week and plan for more as the week progresses, but I can’t see myself getting crazy with it. I must say that it’s a nice break from the daily grind of tournaments, though.

On June 30th, I attended the All In party at the Palms pool. The place was packed with more people than I expected. On the other hand, the door was completely disorganized. Some people got right in, while others who were supposed to be on the list were held up for quite awhile. I was supposed to be on the media list, but no one ever checked or even seemed to have a list, so I finally just got in on my word. And when I attempted to get a VIP pass through a friend, they had run out of them and looked a little panicked about it.


Magazine Names Tom Schneider “Most Improved Player of the Year”

All In magazine is no CardPlayer … (seriously, I don’t think anyone would disagree) …

Rumor has it that they have bestowed Pokerati’s own Donkey Bomber with the Bobby Brady Award for being the best Tom Schneider he could be. Assuming it’s true — no confirmation yet from the All In website — big congrats, Tom! You definitely deserve the 2007 AIM MIPOY, and you couldn’t have done it if you didn’t play so bad a few years ago when poker was booming work so hard!
