Tweet Tweet Bad Beat - Mensen bloggen nog, nieuwe pokerfilm met Steven Seagal

In een tijd ver voor sociale media als Facebook en Twitter, hielden mensen een blog bij. Op platforms als blogger.com tikten mensen stuk na stuk, in de meeste gevallen door nauwelijks iemand gelezen, en eindigend met de belofte vaker te gaan bloggen. Het is maar goed dat die hype over is, want wat een werk was het. Maar sommige mensen bloggen af en toe nog, en we hebben twee voorbeelden deze week!

Trickett can't be tricked!

(Ba Dum Tss!)
Wie de Big One for One Drop uitzendingen heeft bekeken, zal weten dat Sam Trickett in Vegas zijn voet blesseerde toen hij wat sla saus liet vallen in de supermarkt. In een toernooi vol met de beste pokerspelers ter wereld, die de tafel delen met rijke zakenmensen met shady geschiedenissen, was dit het beste wat Poker PROductions kon maken, applausje graag! Het weg schoppen van glazen flessen sla saus is niet wat we willen horen! We willen verhalen van grote partijen, illegale praktijken, uit de hand gelopen feesten, foto's van coke snuiven van hoeren hun billen door bekende spelers!

We weten al dat Sam Trickett meer dan een miljoen uitgaf aan champagne de afgelopen jaren, en nu heeft hij weer een avontuurtje met ons te delen. Heel spannend is het niet, maar in ieder geval beter dan wat ze op ESPN hadden. Voor uw gemak de gehele blog hierbij maar even:

The Sam Trickett Blog

I need to get back in the gym…pronto.

I've put on about a stone in weight since Vegas and people are starting to notice. I walked into the Palm Beach Casino, in London, last night, and three people commented about my weight in the first 10-minutes, including one guy who said that my face looked fat - now that's a bit harsh mate.

When I do get back in the gym, it's not just the fat that has to come off, I also need to get my arms into shape, and I'll explain why.

I went down to the Palm Beach to play in a £25/50/100 Pot Limit Omaha game. I am finding it really difficult to get action these days, and so this is about as big of a game as you are going to get in the UK.

I ended up the game's biggest loser again. This time I was doing my nuts to the tune of around £35k, so I thought I would have a few glasses of wine. Well, a few turned into a few more and I got quite drunk, stopped playing towards the end of the night and decided to go off into town for a few more drinks.

I was railing a friend, waiting for him to finish the game so we could go out, when this guy came up to me and asked me for an arm wrestle. I know that he's a regular in the game, a quite skinny fella about 50-years of age.

I asked him why he wanted to arm wrestle me, and he told me that he just wanted to see if he could beat me. Now, I'm quite a decent arm wrestler, and have probably only lost about three times from about 100 bouts, so I was interested. He was also a bit drunk and I had seen him at the Roulette table, so there was also a good chance he was just punting.

I suggested we put up £500 each to make it interesting and he looked at me with this, "is that all?' kind of look, so I suggested a grand. He then asked me to up the stakes, so I suggested £3k, and that wasn't any good for him either. In the end I told him I had £6.5k in my pocket and I would wrestle him for that, but he said no and walked off.

I sauntered back to the game and everyone was asking who had backed out. "The guy," I told them. The guy went nuts.

"I didn't back out!" said the guy as he pulls out a wad of notes from his pocket. "I bet you £50k that I can beat you."

‘What the hell is going on?' I thought.

So he pulls £50k from his pocket and before you know it we are heading to the VIP area with about 35 people following us like a school playground fight. We sat down and I looked him in the eye and told him that if he was hustling me I was going to be really upset, but if he really did want to gamble then he had a bet.

I was literally just about to put my hand into his hand when I smelled a rat. I pulled out and decided that it all seemed a little too good to be true.

"I was going to rip your arm off and shove it down your throat," said the man.

"Christ, calm down mate," I thought.

It turns out that the guy has never lost. In fact, he's that good he would have probably beaten Sylvester Stallone in the movie ‘Over the Top'. Apparently, he is so strong he can do hundreds of push-ups.

So not only did I do my nuts in the PLO game, but also I nearly got hustled by a world champion arm wrestler, and had my arm ripped off and shoved down my throat.

Now that's what I call an interesting night out.

Iemand scammed iemand

De pokerwereld is er eentje van vertrouwen. Meer dan eens gooien mensen elkaar pakken geld toe zonder een contractje op te stellen, procenten worden gekocht en geswapped zonder dat er een notaris aan te pas komt. Het is niet raar dat er af en toe mensen profiteren aan dit gebrek aan professionaliteit.

Er zijn genoeg verhalen van scammers, en Amanda Musumeci heeft er ook eentje:

Cliffs: Amanda biedt Kim Shannon onderdak, terwijl ze haar eigenlijk niet kent. Het draait al snel uit op een wat langer verblijf, en ze houden een lijstje bij met uitgaven. Shannon heeft een schuld van $5.500, maar betaald die nooit en bedenkt heel veel smoesjes.

Nieuwe pokerfilm

Misschien heb je hem al langs zien komen, maar er is een nieuwe pokerfilm op komst. Ik kan niet wachten in ieder geval!

En dan hadden we nog Phil Ivey die er exact hetzelfde uitziet als toen hij afstudeerde:
