Bad news, and good news.

Some people are just meant to screw things up.

We had something good going on for the poker scene in the metro, but sadly, it was inevitable that someone will show up and destroy what was so lovingly created with the best intentions, and turn it into an abomination driven by greed and selfishness.

The State of Mind is still alive and will adjust to these tough and challenging times. That place where it used to be is officially no longer associated in any way with it. Several people paid a dear price for that, and the person responsible should, in my opinion, be held liable for anything that may go wrong in the future. The man who destroyed everything and is still continuing to do so until now HAS to be accountable.

anyway, on a lighter note, congratulations to Barbiemanila, one of the best poker players in our shores today, for winning fourth place in the biggest poker tournament ever organized and recognized by PAGCOR, taking home a cool 120+ thousand pesos!

i hope we all continue to work together to make the poker scene grow.

in the meantime, we'll keep you posted.

I feel for you, my friend...

hurray for barb! :)

days after the event, i still can't believe it. it's just not fair. i don't see what's wrong with playing a skill game with friends. if we were two tables playing monopoly, what would be the difference?

yup. i mean, some people get away with doing drugs in hotel rooms and shit like that.

kids lose hundreds of thousands of pesos betting on NBA and other sports.

illegal sabungans and dogfighting arenas are all over the place.

jueteng, sakla, bingo, jai alai..

a friggin 500 peso poker tourney, and you get this??? its sucks that personal vendettas and political agendas come into play like this, and innocent people get hurt.

the hypocrisy is disgusting.

do you have our new numbers? i'll text you. kindly inform us if there are home tourney games and cash games going around. thank you buddy.

I was there. I work for PAGCOR.

Quote of the Day

  • The best poker I've ever played has always entailed peace. A relaxed comfort. Eyes open, ears open, radar up. Absorbing my opponent's every message. Taking them as they come. Not mixing what those messages are with what I want them to be. It's like an aerial view. A view from above the myriad luck-dependent reactions of those many people who never gain such a peace. And when you gain that view, that peace - when you'd rather have the truth, no matter how disappointing, over a false hope, no matter how desirable - then you're a player. The hand you're on slips into a stream of thousands of other hands, no one of which, because of your lofty view, seems unduly important, no false fearful emotions rise within you. When you gain the peace of lofty perspective, you're a player, and when you're a player, you're free.- from "King of a Small World" by Rick Benett
