New Series: The First Turkey Nerd HORSE Competition

Inspired by some of the video series I saw on Deuces Cracked, I proposed that Hulk and I play a series of 5 SNG tournaments in HORSE format. Winner takes the first annual Turkey Nerd HORSE Title Lots of pride on the line!!!!

We will start next Monday, March 16 around 9:30 PM EST. All games will be heads up SNG’s on Full Tilt Poker. We will post the Tournament ID on the blog, so if you want to log in and railbird, you are welcome. The week (or so) following each tournament, we will post hand histories and analysis from both sides of our perspective for your viewing pleasure.

For those of you who don’t habla poker, HORSE is an acronym for Hold ‘em, Omaha Hi/Lo, Razz (also called Stud Lo), Stud Hi, and Stud Eight or Better (Stud Hi/Lo). In tournament play, all of these games are limit games, but we have agreed to play NLHE and Pot Limit Omaha. The Stud games will still be played at limit.

Looking forward to this!

Opportunity: Free Week of Deuces Cracked

Sorry that I haven’t been more active lately.  Between my day job and some personal travel, I haven’t had any time or energy to even play poker, let alone post anything to the site.  Humblest apologies to our demanding readership!

Anyway, Guido alerted me that you can sign up for a free week of videos, reading, and forums on Deuces Cracked.  For those of you unfamiliar, Deuces Cracked is a poker education site, with videos, forums, and articles from professionals.  You can also search for an engage coaches to improve your online game.  I have been watching a few of these series, and I certainly enjoyed what I’ve picked up here.  The video pros are incredible, and it’s certainly worth your time.

After the 1 week free trial, you will be automatically charged $29.00 a month, but if you’re grinding it out online, you can quickly learn and improve and make the investment well worth it!  Happy poker-ing!

A Long Time Ago, at a Table Not So Far Away …

Another development from El Pinata’s last game at Fat Tony’s house was EMG’s idea that all the people at the game may or may not resemble characters from Star Wars (all praise George Lucas, lest we be sued for uttering the name without permission). I thought I’d try my hand at it, but kept coming up short trying to make things fit into an image. Instead, I’ve come up with this:
