Hey High Rollers, working on a new page of Poker Quotes and have provided a few below.  Enjoy, and please be sure to check out the site www.highrollerradio.net

“Well, it gives me a bit of table presence that others don’t have.  And it helps, because wearing a coat and tie reminds me to stay disciplined.”
– Crandall Addigton, on his wearing a Stetson at the poker table.

“Well, I could have won.  We played back and forth for a long time and finlly a hand came up where, if I had won this hand, I would have broke Johnny.  I had a big lead on him in chips anyway.  I flopped three sevens and he slow played two aces.  He checked the flop and the turn and, even there was an ace on the river, I was convinced I had him.  That was a hand I’ll never forget.  Then we played and played and finally I tried to win with a pair, but he had turned a set of threes on me and that was the end of the game.”
– Crandall Addington, on finishing second to Johnny Moss at the 1974 World Series of Poker main event.

“He returned to Dallas (in 1945) to find one nice surprise…most of his cronies had added a new game to their repertoire – hold’em.  The high action game had spread quickly across the south.  Johnny never let on that hold’em was one of the first games he ever learnt.  He simply asked them how it was played and had a picnic as people across the south tried to teach him.”
– 
Don Jenkins, from his book on Johnny Moss.

“Ill be damned – this is funny.”
– Believed to be the last words of Doc Holliday, legendary Faro and poker player, who died in 1887 of ill health.  Seems he was surprised his death was not the result of bullets.  (From the outstanding book, Ghosts at the Table by Des Wilson.)

A Gambler’s Word
“They are not brace enough to take the name, but they are always ready for part of the game.  A gambler’s word is as good as his bond, and that is more than I can say of many businessmen who stand very high in the community.  I would rather take a true gambler’s word than the bond of many businessmen who are today counted worth thousands.  The gambler will pay when he has money, which many good church members will to.”
– George Devol, legendary riverboat gambler who had a knack for chesting cheaters, from his autobiography.

“To be a Road Gambler you had to do four things:
1) Find the game
2) Beat the game
3) Not get arrested
4) Not get robbed”
– 
Amarillo Slim Preston

Poker Quotes
“I’ve never seen anyone grow humpbacked carrying away the money they won from me.”
– ‘Poker Alice’ Tubbs 

“Oh Grace, don’t you know, the Queens always beat the Straights in this house.”
– Will, from the show Will & Grace following a ‘Home Game’

“Sports betting is all about money management, so the most money won on one event is not the most important thing.”
— Bruce Dern 

(Note: We thank Des Wilson and his wonderful book Ghosts at the Table for the source of some of these quotes.  Highly recommended book.)

Online War Wages On, Cops Raid a Seniors Game

Hey High Rollers, this week an online poker battle between one side, which badly wants it legalized, and the another, namely Sheldon Adelson, which doesn’t.  This is a war folks.  Plus…the authorities shut down a penny game at a seniors centre. Really?

<New Parlay Odds at BetOnline>

Online Poker Battle!

MGM & AGA back a new coalition designed to fight Sheldon Adelson anti-online gaming talks. Here’s a quote:

“This new entity is dedicated to creating a regulated Internet gaming marketplace and preventing a federal ban of online gaming. The coalition will operate exclusively at the federal level, encouraging Congress to embrace regulation as the best means to protect minors, detect money launderers and eliminate a dangerous black market.” – said AGA CEO Geoff Freeman.

Go get ’em guys!

Sheldon Adelson is on record suggesting he’ll spend whatever it takes to prevent the legalization of online poker. Well, a new coalition backed by the AGA and MGM has been formed to fight Adelson:

“A move to make all Internet gaming illegal is absurd on its face! That would remove all law enforcement oversight and permit the unregulated black market operators the ability to grow.”
– MGM Resorts Senior Vice President Alan Feldman.

Lori Tells… w/ Lori Kolstad, regarding Sheldon Adelson and his bid to fight online gaming:

“Yes, hard work of the Poker Players Alliance, poker players, and those that want to retain their freedom to choose what they do in their homes are being heard!! Sheldon Adelson, the donkey with the largest stack in the room, and we know what happens to donkeys? They rarely leave with any chips!”

Are you kidding me?

Washington shuts down a pennie card game…come’on man. ESPN The game’s been going on for 25 years at a seniors centre…here’s what one of the players said following the raid: (hilarious)

“If you gave them an IQ test, the needle wouldn’t move.”

Here’s what another one said: “We should turn the card rooms into grow rooms for marijuana. Then we would be legal and make some money. Maybe we could have free lunch!”

What is going on here?

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!)

Twitter Glitter:

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!)

 

 

Phil Hellmuth Quotes

Hey High Rollers, not sure if I’ve posted this or not, found it in the drafts column…worth reposting anyway…Phil Hellmuth quotes…gotta love Phil, perhaps the greatest tournament player in the history of poker.  Enjoy!

<Casino Homepage>

Phil Hellmuth Quotes from a Dutch magazine interview in which the only words in English were Hellmuth’s answers;  apparently Phil’s working on not letting his ego get in the way this year, as he preps for WSOP: 

The winner of 12 bracelets!

The winner of 13 bracelets!

www.highrollerradio.net

“I think I had two amazing years in a row where I finished second in Player of the Year both times. One of those times the guy (Greg Merson) had to actually win the Main Event to beat me. I posted more points than anyone in the history of the POY but I still finished second!”

“It’s more like the problem is everyone’s telling you how great you are and you’re reading about it and everything. You really have to ignore all that and keep your head down.”

“You can never take success for granted. So it’s about not letting ego get in the way. I think I’ve done a pretty good job of doing that,”

“He and I have a fun rivalry going on. He sent me a joke text with a picture the other day. I said “I’ll race you to 20 bracelets.” He wrote back and said “I’ll race you to 30.”
