Camryn for children at the Commerce

Sunday, October 18th, 2009

Tournament players in L.A. had difficult choices to make today. A $100k guarantee at the Hustler with a $225 buy in, a $150k guarantee for a buy in of $335 at the Bike or the Commerces overlay $30k for $120. I would have taken the latter option , the smallest buy in , only four […]

The Center that Bart built.

Thursday, October 15th, 2009

I have always been more interested in the Charity poker events. Not from a charitable viewpoint, these events have proved to be the only way to make money for some poker insiders. Not from a poker viewpoint: once the rebuy period was over and done with twenty tables shrank to four in the time it […]

Return to poker: today only!

Monday, October 12th, 2009

Although not as catchy I was in danger of becoming “horseygossip”. So, today I visited the Bike for the final day of their $200 buy in $100k guarantee. They made the guarantee attracting over 700 players. The word is out that the Commerce’s Friday night tournie has had a $10k overlay the past two weeks. […]

Kentucky Derby winner Mine that Bird, Tiago or Colonal John. Who would win the Goodwood Stakes at Santa Anita today? Answer: A horse from England that usually runs at lowly Wolverhampton on a Saturday evening.The horse would not be rated in the top 100 of Englands three year olds. I was all over this story […]

Kieren Fallon + Saeed bin Suroor at Santa Anita

Saturday, October 10th, 2009

Kieren Fallon is like the pied piper to the British media but at Santa Anita on Friday he rode John Sadlers Becrux without any fuss. The controversial Irishman has flown over to Santa Anita to ride Breeders Cup longshot Gitano Hernando on Saturday for Newmarket trainer Marco Botti. I asked him to sign my racecard […]

Dirty Wally has his photo in this weeks “Pasadena Independent.” The […]
