Ben Affleck Banned

Actor Ben Affleck, star of such mobies as Armageddon, Argo and Good Will Hunting, is no longer allowed ro play blackjack at the Hard Rock in Las Vegas.  Why?  Apparently he’s too good. TMZ.com quoted insiders as saying Affleck was counting cards, using math to predict future outcomes.  He is allowed to play other games at the casino.


Bobby Hoff

After several Bad Beats, Hoff finished second in the 1979 main event to Hal Fowler, was widely regarded as one of the best cash game players ever. He was a winner from the start, making money in each of his first 40 sessions. Hoff eventually went broke and had to take jobs as a craps and blackjack dealer before taking a shot at grinding blackjack for a living. Because of card counting, he was barred from every casino in the Silver State and was forced back into poker and put together a legendary career.

Poker in Main Stream

Have you seen the episode of Criminal Minds where the killer enters a 50k buy-in Texas Hold’em Tournament and ‘The Team’ decides to hit up Rossi, a best-selling author, for the entry fee – for Reid to play?  Reid, the young whiz-kid, presents a mathematical equation for ‘knowing when to raise’.  It was a 1st prize winner take all tournament.

Gold’s Auction

Jamie Gold’s main event bracelet from his 2006 World Series of Poker championship sold for a whopping $65,725 in an online auction.  It’s a stunning piece of jewelry containing more than seven carats of diamonds and 120 grams of white and yellow gold.

Poker Quotes

“There are few things so unpardonably neglected in our country as poker!  The upper-class knows very little about it.  Why, I have known clergymen, good men, kind hearted, liberal, sincere and all that, who did not know the meaning of ‘flush’.  It is enough to make one ashamed of the species.”

– Mark Twain

Quick Joke:
A guy comes home from his weekly poker game and sheepishly says to his wife, “Honey, I’m sorry, I lost you in a poker game.”  Startled, she wondered, “How did you do that?”
“It wasn’t easy,” he replied.  “I had to fold a straight flush.”

Did you know?  The American Gaming Association (AGA) will be using the release of the new poker movie, ‘Runner Runner,’ to push for online poker regulation in America.  The AGA plans to show the government how the movie displays the risks associated with a dodgy and unregulated market.  The plan involves an ad campaign and a series of discussion screenings when the movie hits the theatres September 28th.

The movie stars Ben Affleck and Justin Timberlake.

High Roller Radio lol, Reid, p[laying a tourney remember, just asked fo a seat change because the light is bothering his eyes and it was granted.  A tourney remember…lol.
High Roller Radio lol, Reid just nailed a gutshot straight and figured out who the killer was all in the same hand.
Btw, watched the Little League World Series and Japan, in spectacular defensive fashion, wins the title beating Chula Vista, CA 6-4 with a double play to end it and getting out of a bases loaded jam in 4th with a fly out and dramatic play at the plate.  Wow.High Rollers indeed!
