Good Players Gone Bad!

Have you ever seen a good player go on total tilt? A once well-respected opponent who plays incredibly bad for more than just several hands or even for a session? You have? If you believe that it is possible then maybe you need to reassess your definition of a good player. Good players cannot go on tilt for more than a brief time. If a player is tiltable to this extent then he does not meet my criteria of a good player. Let me explain this concept a little further.

An Interview with Jim Delorto, Director of Poker at Binion's

The Good, The Bad, and the Funny at the WSOP

As I write this, the WSOP is in full swing. It isn't over so I can't write about the latest millionaires and multimillionaires who won their riches in the 2005 WSOP main event because our publisher gave us a very early deadline for this issue so he could go to Vegas and witness the birth of the newest millionaires in our poker world. There will be thousands of gasps, cheers, tears, good beats and bad beats to report on after Friday, July 15. For now, I can report on some of the happenings and behind the scenes good, bad and funny at the 2005 WSOP.

Patient Boredom

Most poker players will say that they would rather be lucky than good. However, the professionals know that luck is short term and in the long run, poker skills will win. In the long haul, a player must have the discipline to either play or fold and at the right times.

World Poker Masters announced-Spain to host $20,000 buy-in event

A new event, the World Poker Masters 2005, will be staged at the Casino Castell Peralada in Northern Spain later this year, with a few novel twists, leading the organizers to bill it "the first poker TV show for the players themselves". For one it will be limited by invitation to the top fifty players in the world (like golf masters tournaments) as ranked by aggregate tournament wins and earnings as of January 1st 2005.

Today's word is... Formula

Let's move on to secrets about calling in poker. I'm frustrated, though. How come? It's because two weeks ago I told you about a flaw in most tournaments that make it impractical to play your best game. I provided a solution. Well, guess what? The World Series of Poker didn't change the way they'd structured their final event, even though I provided four days notice. Poker's biggest tournament went off as planned.

So, maybe next year. I've said what I had to say, and I'm glad.

Entertainment Report - George Carlin

I got an e-mail the other day asking me if George Carlin was worth going to see, as the writer had heard he's "not that funny anymore, just angry." My answer was, "Yes, he is worth seeing, just as he was 40, 30, 20, 10 years ago. He still is very funny, and yes, he is angry, but when hasn't he been?"

For as long as I can remember, and I can go back to his early days on stage, Carlin has always been railing against the injustices and craziness in the world and our society. He makes no apologies for his views, and I'm sure he won't when he appears August 11-24 at the Stardust in Las Vegas.
