Thought of the Day – Poker Tidbits

October 18, 2013:  hey High Rollers…something positive to start:

HRR Thought of the Day:

“Life is like a game of poker, you have to play the hand you’re dealt.  But, a wise player can play what seems to be a weak hand and win the game.”
Rick Warren

TidbitDoyle Brunson won the world title back-to-back in ’78 and ’79…each time his final hand was 10-deuce…a terrible hand that he played well and tuned into a winner.  If you are dealt a Bad Beat…play your hand the best you can!

The High Roller Way.



Did you know?  Dr. Seuss, after writing his best-selling Cat in the Hat, was wagered $50 by his publisher he couldn’t write a book using 50 words or less.  Dr. Seuss won the bet with Green Eggs and Ham.

Did you know?  Doyle Brunson’s late dog Casper was named after his card protector, Casper, the friendly ghost.  Casper was known as a mean dog, who bit more than 100 people.

High Roller Radio Thought of the Day:

Many people believe Leonardo da Vinci was one of the greatest geniuses in human history. Perhaps a large part of his genius was a result of knowing how to spend the limited amount of time he had more wisely than anyone else.

Your thoughts?  We are open for criticism…but go easy, okay.  lol.

Legend or Cheat?

LOVE this page!  Tribute to Archie Karas, who some say is the greatest gambler of all-time and others call a CHEAT.  Heard of the legendary ‘RUN?’  Turned $57 into more than $40 million in less than three years, only to lose it all back over the next 2 years.  .  Quote from Vegas historian Howard Schwartz of Gambler’s Book Club & ESPN video f/ Brunson, Cloutier, and others talking about Archie.
