Sleeping All Day...Here I Come!; Los Angeles, CA
July 18, 2021

...yeah, right. I wish. Still, good to be home.

I have said it every year, and I will say it again this year; there is nothing as great as that first day when you leave Vegas after the Series...

All in all...and I mean, in all ways here...I think the WSOP was a big success. I wasn't able to get a damn thing going on the poker front, of course, but PokerRoad was able to really hit the ground running and create a presence for ourselves in the poker world. We have quickly become the "pro's" site, and the site that reports on what is going on in the poker world without bias, and without considering our own economic interests a lot of the time.

One mistake that we have been making though is letting "PokerRoad Radio" break a lot of the big time scandals, stories, and guests. The truth is that our show isn't really about all of that and we rarely are as prepared as we should be when it comes to the very serious issues facing our game today. Much of that is my fault, as I am generally playing online poker, running the company, and dealing with a hundred other things at once, rather than educating myself on the goings-ons that we may be talking about on the show that day. For this, I apologize. I think in the future we will be what we set out to be, a tournament poker radio show, and let "Big Poker Sundays" handle the big fish...

On a brighter note, I'm back in LA and able to walk outside without a specially designed suit for heat. Before I split town though, I did manage to play the WPT event at the Bellagio and pick up a small cash. I was basically card dead for the last two days, picking up 10's once and Jacks once, sadly losing both. I was pleased with how I played, however, as I did as much as I could do with very little.

It's time for a little relaxing now, for about the next month or so. I'm planning on literally doing as little as is humanly possible. Soaking in some music and spending time with friends will be high on the priority list. I did check out "The Dark Knight" last night, and I have to say that it's one of the best movies I have seen in quite some time. It's one of those rare special little moments in movies when you just don't want it to end, no matter how long you have been sitting in the theatre. I was a bit of a Batman nut when I was younger, so I always have a soft spot in me for these films as well. Do yourself a favor, and go spend some time with this film...

Talk to everyone soon...


PS- I also wanted to send a special "thank you" out to Barry Greenstein, Phil Ivey, Kristy Gazes, Eugene Todd Bro, Kevin Saul, Jeff Madsen, David Singer, JC Tran, Amnon Filippi, Brandon Cantu, Chino Rheem, and all the other professional players who either contributed to the site during the WSOP, or wore a 'PokerRoad' patch during play. I owe you all a huge debt of gratitude...Thank you!
