Roulette Chess at the World Chess Hall of Fame

Chess and chance are in the air. Cardplayer just published my “Poker Player’s Guide to Chess Gambling.” I led with the famous “$50,000 game” between my brother and Tom Dwan. I moved on to chess-poker hybrids from poker chess to roulette chess to Chinese Poker Chess (see video below!). I also wrote a piece on chess and chance for the STL Beacon on my way to a roulette chess performance at the World Chess Hall of Fame. If you have any thoughts on betting on bishops, comment or tweet at me.

WSOP Interview on Women in Poker July 23, 2012

Posted by Administrator in : feminism,poker,video , add a comment

I’m composing a long and ambitious piece about my experience at the World Series of Poker. In other words, look for it in August. If you follow me on twitter, you know a lot about the ups and downs of my 2012 WSOP. I had a fantastic time obviously (not hard at “adult summer camp”) but I didn’t run well at poker in several key moments, for instance my bustout hand in the Main Event.

Women did fantastically at this year’s WSOP. Though two beautiful young women narrowly missed out on final-tabling the Main Event (see Hitler’s reaction), Vanessa Selbst won a bracelet in the ten-game mix and Amanda Musumeci and Jackie Glazier both placed 2nd in No Limit Hold Em events. See my PokerStars Women article on Selbst.

I was interviewed on QuadJacks about ChessBitch, women in poker and the WSOP Ladies Event.
