Haley's Poker Blog

No bad beats, but still a poker blog... hence the anguish.

Flotsam and Jetsam

A handful of loose items here, not enough to make a decent post individually. First, the poker blogroll (either in the "Links" section or over on the left side of the page, depending on which version of this blog you're reading) is up around 450 active links. When we will hit the magic 500? Probably as soon as I do more digging into some blogs' secondary and tertiary links.

Next up, an item for the core poker bloggers who surf on by --- I was at a table on Titan, playing around with some loose nickels in one of those Maui jackpot SNGs, when I ended up seated next to a very famous widow. See for yourself:

Another good show Thursday night for all of those listening in to Lou Krieger and Amy Calistri on "Keep Flopping Aces," over at holdemradio.com. Note that all or most of the episodes are available there at any time, so you can listen in at your leisure. Thursday's guest was Andy Bloch, who ran way over his alloted time because the conversation was so interesting --- about half each on poker and blackjack. Andy, for those of you who don't know, was part of that famed MIT blackjack team featured in several documentaries in recent years.

Neat Freaking Stuff. And if I'd been in that situation, I would've been on a team like that in a heartbeat.

I'm off to the "Birthday Tournament" over at poker.com later this afternoon. It looks like it's maxed at 1,000 entries (with about 670 registered to date), so we'll see what the competition has to offer. With a $50,000 pool I expect it to be a middlin' tough go, about on the order of a WWdN.

Few bloggers make me laugh the way Iggy does, and those pictures of Joe Piscopo's long-lost sister are just too much.
