Submitted by Jonathan, this article belongs to the Poker and life series. Jonathan runs the Why do I play poker website, which as the name suggests is all about sharing each others motivations for self punishment on the felt. I've been married for 10 years, have 2 kids and almost no time to myself. If you count my internet porn babes as company, then I do in fact have no time to myself. When I get a call to join a neighbor's home game on a random Wednesday night, I think to myself, "What would Read more [...]

Submitted by Dungbeetle, this article belongs to the Poker and Life series It's been a while since I've checked up on Dungbeetle's poker life on the Magical Mystery Poker Tour blog.

Submitted by Rakewell, this article belongs to the Poker and Life series. I recently read another long post on Rakewell’s PokerGrump blog and liked the way it touched on the subject of why we tend to remember our bad beats better when we are on the receiving end and how it becomes easier to deal with bad beats the more of them you have experienced. In addition Rakewell again draws parallels to situations that on the surface have nothing to do with poker, which I really enjoy and therefore Read more [...]

This article belongs to the Poker and Life series This is the story of a Texas Hold'em variant known among my friends and I as Loco Poker. Loco Poker was developed in Newcastle a few years ago when Artur and I took two weeks off to visit my brother and a friend of his who had set op base in Newcastle to live the gambler's dream.
