It's Tuesday and I've been sick the last few days with the Vegas crud. I always get sick after I cover the November Nine. Not enough time/energy to write, so here's a few links to kill some brain cells with...
How to Fix the WSOP Ratings Problem? is a must read and one of the best pieces of constructive criticism I've seen about how to cover the Main Event from the TV angle. Well done, gents, well done. (Wicked Chops Poker)That's it. You know what's up next... NGTFOOMO!
Thanks to Amy Calistri for a warm fuzzy review of Lost Vegas. Reading the manuscript caused groovy flashbacks for Amy and she shared her thoughts on what it was like to be a member of the poker media in the immediate years after the poker boom, especially in 2005, which she dubbed the poker media's "Summer of Love." (Aimlessly Chasing Amy)
Let Their Hearts Rule Their Heads is an eloquent piece by Vicky Coren about how professional poker is slowly becoming on honorably choice of professions. (The Guardian)
My favorite breaking poker news site is the Poro Report. Poker finally has its own Drudge Report. Well done, chaps. (Poro Report)
