Did you know? Freehold Raceway, in New Jersey, is the oldest racetrack in the United States, with horse racing having taken place there informally since the 1830s.
Did you know?  In January 2012, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie signed legislation allowing sports betting in New Jersey after it was approved by a 2-to-1 margin in a voter referendum held in November 2011. The law permits any of the state’s 12 casinos and 4 racetracks to offer gambling on professional and college sports, but prohibits them from accepting bets on college events played in New Jersey, or out-of-state games involving New Jersey college teams.  In February 2013, the courts overturned that.
Did you know?  There are 12 casinos in New Jersey, all of which are located in Atlantic City. In 2011, they employed roughly 33,000 employees, had 28.5 million visitors, made $3.3 billion in gaming revenue, and paid $278 million in taxes.  They are regulated by the New Jersey Casino Control Commission and New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement.
Did you know?  Bob Guccione, founder and publisher of adult magazine Penthouse, gambled on the casino business in New Jersey and LOST big, more than $160 million.  The Penthouse Boardwalk Hotel and Casino was proposed to be built in Atlantic City during the late 1970s. Due to financial and legal difficulties, the hotel was never completed and a casino license was never issued.  He paid taxes on the property for years and it NEVER opened.
Bob C was a definite High Roller.

High Roller Radio ‘Quote of the Day’

“Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence.”
– Helen Keller

We know Helen’s a High Roller!

High Roller Radio Quote of the Night:

“If there was no action around, he would play solitaire – and bet against himself.”

Groucho Marx about his brother Chico.

One word – Unacceptable!!!!!

A mother and daughter were arrested after Hallandale Beach Police found five unsupervised children in a parked car at the Gulfstream Casino.

Angela Pond, 37, and Esharia Pond, 21, were each charged with five counts of child neglect after a Gulfstream security guard found the children, ranging from 1 to 11 years of age, inside a car parked in the south lot, according to Hallandale Beach Police.

(Folks, please gambling responsibly and w/ common sense.  Your kids are more important than a slot machine, or even our website, lol…Please don’t let the next story like this be about you.  Cheers)

….from Card Player magazine: A woman who won a $1-million prize in a promotion at an Oregon tribal casino is suing the firm who insured it for stiffing her on her seven-figure payout, according to KGW.  In 2012, Beverly Mackey, who currently lives off of disability and social security payments and a small pension, hit the grand prize in the Chinook Winds Casino’s “Swipe, Play & Win” promotion. … To her devastation, the insurer of the contest, Nevada-based Odds On Promotions, reportedly refused to pay, claiming that it had made a terrible blunder. It said a company technician put the odds of a $1-million prize far too low. In other words, that the hit was illegitimate
(We hope the judge makes them pay big time.  A win is a win!)

Kristy Arnett @KristyArnett
Good poker players who say snarky remarks at plays beginners make need to shut the hell up. There was a time that was you.
(Nicely done Kristy, we agree.  Be nice to them, “good hand,” and keep’em at the table.  I’ve seen a so-called good player get upset at a recreational player, mother of 4, and she got up, put the chips in her rack and left.  Nice job buddy!)



Nolan Dalla Tidbits, Gambling in Ireland w/ John O’Shea & UFC 165

September 23, 2013: Prophecy?

Nolan Dalla, media director for the WSOP, based on her success at WSOP Circuit events, told Lonnie Harwood she would have a ‘HUGE’ 2013 World Series of Poker.  Pulled her aside and told her.  Harwood, just 18 months after playing her first circuit event, made three final tables, won her first bracelet and close to $1 million dollars – the biggest WSOP any woman has ever had.  ESP Nolan?   Excellent interview with the author of One of a Kind, the biography of the late and great Stu Ungar, listen here (  Do you like poker stories, you’ll LOVE this chat.  Enjoy.



Here’s another thing we learned from the Nolan Dalla Interview:

Did you know?  Des Wilson, author of the great poker narrative Ghosts at the Table, the story of 1979 main event world champ Hal Fowler, the first amateur to ever do so, used to be the head of the head of the Democratic National Party.  He quit politcvs and decided to write about poker.  Nolan Dalla, author of One of a Kind, says it may be the best poker book ever, ‘Pulitzer Prize winning stuff’ he added.

Tidbit: Des Wilson has also done research he says documents and proves the legendary heads-up battle between Johnny Moss and Nick ‘The Greek’ Dandelos, the origin of the WSOP, NEVER happened!  Wow.

Programming NOTESNolan Dalla interview is one site and its GREAT!  Q&A w/ Irishman, pro poker player and BIG TIME sports bettor John O’Shea is on site….PLUS, Lori Kolstad with a written piece on COLLUSION at the table.  BRAND NEW ‘Interviews‘ page – click the tab for access to our archives.

You like poker tidbits?  You’ll LOVE our site.

Thrilled to talk to this guy, Irishman John O’Shea….on the COVER:  We talk about his degenerate lifestyle, money management, what his family thinks about his gambling exploits and the documentary The Gambler.  Wow…great stuff.

Pro poker player and GAMBLER John O’Shea on HRR.

Did you know?  John O’Shea, in the documentary The Gambler, admitted to gambling up to $5 million (British Pounds) a year.  Dynamite chat, listen here –

UFC 165

Chris de Beer 1-and-1 at UFC 165, still makes profit!  AND his college football pick won easily.  Now, 31-8 on the show. Bash Da Bookies one bet at a time baby.

WOW!!!  Alexander Gustaffson was absolutely robbed at UFC: Ultimate Fighting Championship 165….losing to Jon Jones….how a judge saw it 49-46 I’ll never know???  Unreal….would love to hear Chris de Beer’s thoughts?

Highway robbery in Toronto.  Whaddya think?

Did you see the title fight?  Do you think Jones won?  I thought he got beat up…he landed some dangerous shots but overall I thought the SWEDE won.  Let us know?

High Roller Quote of the Night:  (From UFC 165 in Toronto and co-main event preview)

“I’m all-in, I mean my chips are on the table and I’m going for it.”

Eddie Wineland, who was knocked out by interim champ.  Love the poker references at an MMA event.
