Some Ramblings

So yesterday I mentioned that MansionPoker announced a huge tournament with Fox Sports Net and now word has it that the two have come to an agreement on a three year deal. Get this, in 2008 the players are going to be playing for a purse of $100 million dollars. Are you kidding me? To all those that said poker was on the decline you had better check yourself at the door and get ready for another poker party increase. This is absolutely huge news for the poker world. The first player announced to play in the event is none other than Phil Ivey. He is the hottest player in poker right now and you can bet he is going to be working harder than ever to get ready for the first event (which takes place in July). This absolutely blows me away that there is this much money on the table for a six man tournament. I mean Christ put in four more players and make it the single greatest sit n go known to man. Could you imagine logging onto Party Poker and signing up for a sit n go worth this kind of cake. Simply Amazing!

I read this article and wrote about it here last week on poker robots and how they are being used all over the online poker world. This has really made me pay more attention to my surroundings when I play online. Last night I was playing on party poker and this player was at my table and he was driving me nuts. So many hands he would sit there and ponder his decision. He seemed to always be winning the hands he entered. Also, everytime the clock would appear it would run down the time to the exact same second. It was always with twelve seconds left. This was driving me crazy and I really began focusing on it. I would even try to start conversations and to no avail, I was getting absolutely no responses from him/her/robot whatever the fuck this person was. I never would have noticed this kind of behavior if it wasn’t for the bloody article I read. This really pisses me off!


Random tidbits:

Coca Cola is introducing a new product in France and soon to be launched worldwide it’s called Coca-Cola Blak. This new drink is a coffee flavored drink that they are hoping will entice more people to stay away from the likes of starbucks or redbull for their daily dose of energy. I was wondering when this type of drink was gonna happen for Coke and it looks like it has. Apparently there aren’t enough of these drinks on the shelves yet. This will be a good drink for the poker players when the times are getting a little rough when you have spent countless hours indulging yourself in a Poker Party. Now, you can have a coke energy drink.

Have you ever thought about random sayings and wonder what the hell they mean or why do people say them. Here are a few that I always hear and they drive me nuts when I hear them.

When something is "new and improved," which is it? If it's new, then there has obviously never been anything before it and if it's an improvement, then there must have been something before it. When you think about it how many times do you hear this saying yet you never think about its relevance. Is it really new and improved though? It can’t be there is no such thing!

When people say, "It's always in the last place you look." Of course it is. Why would you keep looking after you've found it? Like seriously do people do this? It’s just crazy that we say things and we don’t even realize that if you actually thought about what you said how dumb some of the things are that come out of our mouths.


That wraps up this blog and thanks for checkin it out. Until next time, keep it in the shortgrass and use the bonus code 20BR for party poker.
