Hey High Rollers, how are ya doing?  The snow’s flying where I’m at….gonna be a white Christmas here…Hope the Reindeer’s dress warm….today’s chat brought to you by our good friends atVegasTopDogs.com….Tony K and company, they  pick winners folks…

Alright, I want to read you a few quotes…”I’m not a prodigy, I just work at every poker hand.” Phil Ivey.  “Put yourself in a position to get lucky.”  Tom McEvoy, the 1983 world champ and former guest of this show.  “Patience is the companion of wisdom.”  Saint Augustine.  And, “No Limit Hold’em is 70% psychological, 20% mathematical and 10% magical,” that quote comes to us from our guest today, author of a fantastic new book called Poker Samadhi, designed to help you reach a new level of consciousness at the poker table….its all about divine energy and spirit baby.  She’s the founder and chief guru of Poker Samadhi, located in Las Vegas Nevada….Danielle Striker our guest today…Danielle, good to have you, thanks for being a High Roller…

Thank-you so much for the book…I just love it, keep it at my bedside.  Now,  I know a little bit about your story, a New Yorker, a Broadway dancer, motorcycle nut and now poker crazy…you had a very serious motorbike accident, can you tells us about that…

You write, “and then I had an epiphany, I realized the game of poker was a symbolic representation of life.  The way people play poker and live their lives are the same.”  I love that line…can you elaborate for us?  

Poker Samadhi, it’s a way of life for you isn’t it?

In the dedication, you say that your dad taught you that “You are where your attention is.”  That’s dynamite stuff. 

I listened to a Phil Hellmuth interview years ago, where he said its absolutely vital to be in the right head-space when you play…citing an example of How an alcoholic, deep down, may feel like he/or/she deserves to lose and therefore does…poker players put in crazy hours…crazy things happen, you make take a bad beat, the guy beside you may smell bad, talk too much…and you’re playing for cash, in some cases for a living and you need to keep your head right?  you need to think straight..with so many variables that can be tough?

70% psychological, 20% mathematical, and 10 per cent magical?

You have a close relationship with former guest of the show Tom McEvoy, world champion, author, very impressive man…how did that relationship develop?
What has he taught you about the game of poker…aside from basic strategy…the life part of it?

You guys have some big plans in 2004?

What are some common mistakes you think people make at the poker table because they’re not fully in tune with themselves…bankroll management, I assume is one of them?

In the book, you have quoted some of the games very best, some of them legends..Stu Ungar, show me a good loser and i’ll show you a loser…what was the process in selecting these quotes, was there a criteria?

The interview is slated for later today…stay tuned, Danielle Striker, a good friend of the show, on HRR>

The American Gaming Association (AGA) has responded to Sheldon Adelson’s Anti-web-poker campaign.  Adelson, the woner of the Las Vegas Sands essentially wants to prohibit online poker in any form in the United States.
The AGA said in a statement:
“Time and again, government efforts to prohibit use of everyday products have failed. In 2012, Americans spent nearly $3 billion gambling with rogue of…fshore operators. The Internet cannot be forced back into the bottle — nor can market demand. We support pragmatism and strong regulation of online gaming that protects consumers, prevents underage play, ensures the integrity of the games and empowers law enforcement. New government efforts to prohibit online gaming will unintentionally strengthen black market providers, create more risk for American consumers, including children, and drive U.S. jobs and potential revenues overseas. We appreciate divergent viewpoints and welcome a healthy discussion on this complex issue.”
We have interviewed Judy Patterson, vice-president of the AGA, on HRR…INTERVIEWS tab, enjoy.

Anne Seely Havard · Friends with Johnny Hughes
“I first saw Kenny Rogers when I was out with my parents at an after hours place called the “Show Biz” down the street from the Shamrock Hotel in Houston. He was playing a string bass and singing his heart out with the Bobby Doyle Trio. Amazing group. I was way, way too young to be there. They served bourbon in coffee cups.”

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.

Wyatt Earp, A New Gambling Commercial, & Bet on Sports today!

Wyatt Earp – Gambling Legend
Came across an article in Card Player magazine, which happens to be my homepage, about Wyatt Earp and was intrigued by a new gambling game I had not heard of before called Faro, which is kind of like roulette, a game with big action.
Did you know?  Wyatt Earp was also a “Faro” dealer.  Faro, “just as legitimate a business enterprise as the savings bank down the street,” according to Earp biographer Stuart Lake, was the action game that kept the west’s saloons humming in… 19th century.
The game used a 52-card deck, bets were placed on a green cloth playing surface called a layout (with images of the 13 cards in a suit), the dealer drew two cards with the first “banker” card being a losing card that would see the dealer collect all bets on that number, and the second “winning card” paying even money for bets on that number. If both cards had the same value (called a split) the dealer collected half of players’ bets on that card.  The simple luck game also offered other bets (coppered, whipsaw, high cards, squares) so the layout, similar to a modern roulette table, was a mess of wager towers and usually required a dealer assistant and a casekeeper, who kept a scorecard, usually on an abacus, of the numbers drawn.
The only reason “Faro” flourished in the Gold Rush boom years (the house edge in a straight game of Faro is only 0.23 percent on a straight winning/losing card bet) was due to the rigging of the dealer box, which ensured profits for operators like Wyatt Earp.

Largest Sports Betting Scandal in American History (at the time)
Did you know? Wyatt Earp, in 1982, was part of the biggest sports-rigging scandal in American history, only eclipsed, 25 years later, by the World Series ‘Black Sox’ scandal..  He was a last-minute stand-in referee for a boxing match between Bob Fitzsimmons and Tom Sharkey.  The old gunslinger entered the ring with a Colt .45 tucked into his belt and had to be disarmed in front of the entire crowd….   Fitzsimmons, a 3-to-1 favorite, dominated the bout as Sharkey hit the canvas in the first and fifth rounds. In the eighth round, it appeared to be all over; Sharkey took a devastating body shot and then a sjotn to then jaw that sent him to the mat again.  Earp ruled that the body shot was below the belt and disqualified Fitzsimmons.  It’s rumored that Earp pocketed $2,500, enough to clear his debts, for orchestrating the bogus DQ.
