The Sunday Funnies 11/17/2013: A lighthearted look at the poker world
So apparently a cheerleader for the Philadelphia Eagles is big-time poker fan, and if she could spend the day with anyone in the world it would be Daniel Negreanu, according to a fun little article at bleacherreport.com.
Of course this went a little viral in the poker community, appearing on social media and in the forums, but the story took a turn towards the weird when David Sklansky weighed-in:
“Coincidently I have several friends who know her well and are aware of her likes and dislikes and what turns her on. I’ll get them to come to this site and chat with Daniel a bit to help get the ball rolling.”
WSOP Champion Causes Spelling Problem
So apparently I can’t spell… or read… or perhaps both. Since he won the World Series of poker championship I’ve been writing about Ryan Riess, all the while referring to him as Ryan Reiss.
I guess on the bright side I’ve pretty much locked-up the Google search rankings for Ryan Reiss WSOP Champion.

Lee Davy asks the age old question: To comment or not to comment
An interesting discussion was started by poker writer Lee Davy, when he asked the following question in a recent pokerlistings.com article:
“Do we want color or conformity in live poker reporting?”
Basically, Davy is wondering if people strictly want details or a bit of analysis and entertainment when they are following live reporting at a poker tournament. Assuming they are both done well, which do you prefer?
