And now for something completely different

I've started a new blog. Do you want to try to guess the subject matter? OK, go ahead.



Nope. Try again.




Nope, you're wrong. Try one more time.



No, I'm sorry.

No matter what you guessed, it was wrong, because there is simply no way you could possibly guess what I've decided to start writing about on a semi-regular basis.

But you could just pop over and take a look at the first two posts:

WSOP controversy

Here's an interesting story of a dispute at the WSOP and how it was resolved (probably badly), from Barny Boatman, whom I would judge to be well above average in reliability in recounting the pertinent facts.

PokerNews article #22

Available now:

http://learn.pokernews.com/poker-strategy-theory/three-ways-of-responding-when-making-mistakes-at-the-poker-t-4710.htm

This is a bit of a departure for me. The subject is how to handle making an embarrassing mistake at the poker table. I say it's a departure because it's more in the nature of advice than nuts-and-bolts "need to know" facts about how poker rooms operate, which has been my main focus. But my previous article had discussed one particular form of common mistake new players make, and it got me thinking about that subject more generally. I thought maybe some people would find the stories and advice worthwhile.

Back to more "nuts-and-bolts" next time.
