Californians Speak: Gimme (Legal) Online Poker

Seems like Californians are for online poker. If it would help bring more revenue for the cash-starved state. The Field Poll (which I’ve never heard of, I must confess) released one of the first public indications of voter sentiment on an issue that has consumed Capitol negotiations without producing a deal. Fifty-three percent of registered voters […]

After Black Friday (of Online Poker…April 15), Players Gravitating to Smaller, Less Well-Known Sites to Play

Did the U.S. government actually think that closing down major online casinos would end online gambling? Look, the feds are smart.

Everyone interacts with the metagame to some extent, though the very best players are conciously aware of it and understand its ins and outs as […]

The Corpus Clock

Ok, now this post is not going to be about poker, but I promise you that it is well worth me using my bullhorn to the internet to tell you all about it. And besides, poker tends to attract people who are in the math/science/engineering fields anyway so it shouldn’t be too hard for anyone […]
