Here’s a great clip from a show in the UK (I think) that shows scams. In this clip, the Hendon Mob gets set up and cold-decked in a game under the pretense they were filming a documentary about poker. Which, in a way, they were. Really, REALLY interesting:
I recently finished Dead Money by Rudy Stegemoeller, and I have to say, it’s a fun read!
This is a murder mystery set against the backdrop of a major poker tournament. The hero is a well-respected amateur player, and we’re treated not only to the mystery surrounding the murder of a high-profile professional player, but also to segments about the tournament and hands played. There’s a wide range of characters and some great comedic breaks from several of them to keep this from being too dark of a story. The poker action is believable and compelling, with an awesomely-imagined play at the final table that will leave you shaking your head and saying to yourself, “I’d have seen that coming”.
Yeah, sure you would.
Rudy slot onlain is a poker player who, according to his Amazon Blog, came up with the idea for this book while playing in a tournament at the Borgata. I love characters that evolve through a series of books, and he is currently working on a sequel, so I’m looking forward to reading the next installment.
Another game to play for money fun
Top poker players like Gus Hansen and Dan Harrington are also multi-game champions. For instance, both Gus and Dan were both Backgammon champions prior to the success they currently enjoy with poker.
Backgammon is a game that combines both skill and luck, and the game can be played for money. The game also utilizes some of the same skills you might use in poker. In fact, online backgammon sites do exist to provide this type of action. Backgammonmasters.com, the sponsors of this post, provide this game for the online world.
If you’re like me, however, you’re next to ignorant about the rules of backgammon, much less what constitutes winning strategy. The environment at Backgammonmasters.com will be very familiar to you, in that you can play free rounds of backgammon while learning the game. You can also go to Gammonish.com to learn more about the backgammon game and online backgammon rules.
As we all know from our poker experience, the biggest ponds are the best fishing holes. To this end, Backgammonmasters is engaged in a major branding and pr campaign to drive players to the site. They have developed an animation series featuring Jean Claude, the mascot at Backgammonmasters, in a 5-part series that is really silly, but engaging. The company has put out a press release to promote Jean Claude’s series, which will feature Jean Claude delivering funny lessons about life and Backgammon. As we all know, game sites that develop and maintain a high profile drive new player growth, and provide for money-winning opportunities.
