Internet Gambling-- Catch the Fever!

Dave just wrote on this site that he was against internet gambling. For a while, I was too. I was very anti-gambling, owing to the fact that Atlantic City casinos had always beaten me during college.

But I've succumbed to the trend that is (perhaps sadly) sweeping the nation, and I'm now playing poker on-line, for money.

Had a great run last night. I'd built $200 to $450, and then lost all of my winnings (and then some) over a period of three or four bad days.

Last night I tried something new, and went from around $160 to $701 (yeahp, seven-oh-one; I wouldn't stop until I'd cleared the seven hundred dollar mark) in the best tear of my life.

I'll try not to let it get out of control. Hey, it was just a good run; everyone has them, I guess. But man, was it fun.

If you want to do this... I'd probably suggest that you don't (I've taken enough of your money in donations and, to a far lesser extent, t-shirt sales), but if you want to, make sure you at least read Miller & Sklanksy's Small Stakes Hold'em before committing any money to one of these sites.

So That's Why You Weren't Blogging Update: Well, no. I was out at Father's Day stuff yesterday. A barbecue. When I say I made money "last night," meant late last night. Yes, I could have put up a couple of posts, I guess, and I guess I should have. I'll try to not take whole days off anymore.

Karol suggests I give out a code in case anyone wants to sign up (then I get a little money for recommending a friend). I don't want to do that, because I don't want to encourage it-- 90% of gamblers lose.

But, if you do have the jones and wouldn't mind letting me "sign you up," you can shoot me an email.

But I really don't recommend it. I'd recommend it, maybe, if any of these dirty sonsabitches took out ads on my site rather than just filling up my comments with ONLINE SLOT MACHINES spamvertisements.

Well, I still wouldn't recommend it. It's a vice and a costly and time-consuming one.

Unless you're on a tear.
