Douglas Tirola Does Poker: Lederer and Ferguson are Wild Cards

by Wendeen H. Eolis

Last week, the eagerly awaited poker documentary, All In: The Poker Movie finally hit the big screen.  Director Douglas Tirola’s ambitious project was delayed almost a year so as to allow sufficient time to follow through with additional interviews that would explain not only the events  of Poker’s Black Friday last April 15th,  but also the poker world’s reactions to them.

The movie benefits from the delay, with a singularly realistic picture of poker, complete with coverage of the aftermath of Black Friday while retaining Tirola's original vision —to reveal poker in all of its glory—as a pastime, a game, an avocation, a profession, a business, and “part of the rich history and culture of America, since its beginnings."

Your Words

Dear Reader, I've had the worst luck in the history of human kind recently, okay maybe not that bad but it's been pretty darn bad I tell you. Instead of withching and moaning I've decided to take the high road in the following column...Read this if you're playing poker but you really don't feel like reading about it, sort of.

Hey Paul

So this guy Paul writes to me with grave doubts about his game. He's a low limit player of modest experience, and he thinks he's playing well, but he keeps getting his ass kicked in the fish pond that is low limit internet poker. Per Paul: I wait patiently to get my money in the best spot, play strong starting hands, and get completely wiped out by the fish across the table because he out draws me. I raise when I have my strong hands to better protect them against these types but it seems so futile. If it's suited, they call. If it's connected, they call.

Medication to Improve Your Poker Game?

Dear Poker Counselor,
I'm pretty sure that I'm dealing with ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder). I struggled through school with inattention, fidgeting, inability to stay focused, and disorganization. These same things that hurt me when I was a kid are now hurting me at the poker tables, either online or in live casinos. My home games are even worse, as there seems to be even more distractions to hamper my play. Now that I'm looking to raise my game to the next level, I'm considering talking to my doctor about getting Ritalin or other medications. What do you think?

WSOP Rookie

Hi Jennifer,

I signed up on a poker website and one week later I paid twelve dollars and won six satellites to get my 13500.00 package. Wow, now my dream had come true to play in the WSOP.

I prayed and my prayers were answered. The closer it got to the day and I watched it on TV, the more I got scared. Finally, the day before the big dance I realized something GOD did not give me a spirit of fear but one of power, love and a sound mind.
