It's ESPN's loss but our gain: So Dr. Pauly isn't going to be covering the WSOP for ESPN after all. While I'm sure that's a financial bummer for him (depending on who else is hiring), it's great news for blog readers. Seriously. His coverage so far of the WPT Championship has been superb - you just have to get it from the Tao of Poker, PokerNews and LasVegasVegas.
I love Bloglines but I hate Bloglines: I'm one of those people who's dependent on Bloglines to keep up with dozens of poker blogs. I mean I click through when I have to (#$%^&*! Pokerworks), but I rely on Bloglines to tell me when something new needs to be read. Lately I've been seeing a lot of really old posts marked as new, which leads to wasted time. Also, Bloglines is not psychic, so when a feed stops working (hey, where did my subscription to Falstaff go?), it doesn't tell me.
It wasn't a one outer but it felt like it: Still playing infrequently, as in zero hands this weekend. My last session was a down one, including losing a "buyin" on this beauty:
I hold KJT7 on a board of K987 rainbow. The 7 hits on the turn and all the money goes in. The case 7 hits the river and I lose to KKxx.
This being a PLO bad beat story, it will earn you at most $1 in European currency.
Thinking about June: For some reason, Vegas fever hit hard today. I'm considering going out for the WPBT gathering, but probably won't unless I find a really good airfare. December is much more likely. Then again, if I happen to win a couple stacks at the track I might reconsider.
Still on that streak: Missed the WPBT event last night, keeping alive the string of missed blogger tournaments. This sucks.
