Celebrity Poker

Yesterday, i watched another milestone in Philippine poker history unfold right before my eyes.

Nick G. invited us and a few others to watch the taping of the first ever Philippine Celebrity Poker Tournament at the Casino Filipino paranaque. Although it was quite uneventful, and i didnt even get to finish the taping (man it was dragging on and on and they didnt seem to know what they were doing hehe), i'm glad i was there to witness it. It was cool to mingle with the big guys from pagcor and even play a little ring game (play money lang) right there in the casino.

None other than Nick himself will be acting as host of the show and doing the poker commentary when it airs. Hey, i almost didnt recognize him from all the make-up he had on! haha! showbiz! It will be airing i think maybe next year and will be a series of 7 episodes or something.

I'm pretty sure this will boost the awareness of our local population about poker a hundredfold. More games for us, more new players, more chances to rol the 'roll!

gotta have faith miguel...

We've always had faith.

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
