Hump Day Nugs: Future of Poker Media, WSOP/Market Crash Savior, Heads Up with Einhorn, Goat's Lost Vegas Review, and the Micros

Been in transit. Flew into JFK via the redeye from LAX. Talk about a rough flight. Anyway, here are a few poker-themed news stories to masticate on hump day of all days! Enjoy...
How the World Series of Poker Saved Me from the Market Crash: Part 1 is a remarkably well-written piece that Amy wrote. As you might already know, we worked together in the summer of 2007 covering the WSOP at a time when she wasn't able to keep an eye on her investments. Here's the detailed story of what she did that ended up averting her from the disaster that plagued so many of us when the market took a downturn in 07-08. (Aimlessly Chasing Amy)

Remember David Einhorn? He went deep in the WSOP Main Event a few years back. It seemed strange at the time that he was going to donate all of his winnings to charity. Sure he was head of a major hedge fund, but at the time I had no idea that he was pulling in beaucoup bucks by betting against Allied and Leham Brothers. The gang at sat down to chat with Einhorn about his recent book. Check out Heads Up Play with David Einhorn. (DealBreaker)

Kim from Sweden (via Norway) gives us a no bullshit assessment of the current state of poker media. I even got a shout out. Thanks Kim! Anyway, you really need to carefully examine some of Kim's points in The Future of Poker Media. (Infinite Edge Gaming)

By the way, I'm a fan of news aggregation and PoRo is one of my daily stops for poker news. (PoRo Report)

Thanks to Julius Goat for penning a spectacular review of Lost Vegas. You are way too kind, sir. Thanks also to AlCantHang and FullTilt Poker for running the piece. (Poker From the Rail)

And lastly, the Micros are back with a special holiday themed episode starring Erik Seidel...

That's it for today. NGTFOOMO!
