For those of you who do not know, I'm a big poker fan. I love the game, everything about it. The strategy, the psychology and even the luck involved.
Beckett is holding a contest to win a 2010 Razor Poker hobby box and I want to win it. I've been staring at these hobby boxes since they have come and haven't pulled the trigger (I got a birthday coming up if anyone wants to get me something!).
These contest is to simply state your best pull with a picture of yourself holding it. Here's my favorite pull:
It's a Phil Gordon auto from 2006 Razor Poker.
I like Phil Gordon a lot, though he can be a bit cranky at times. What I enjoy about him as a player is the way he thinks about the game. I've spent a lot of time listening to his audio book (The Little Blue Book after I bought The Little Green Book - or maybe it was the other way around).
I bought the audio book in Cleveland while I was working, so I had something to listen to on the drive back to NJ about 4-5 years ago.
Poker also holds a special place in my heart because it's how I met the boyfriend. We ended up on the same game at the Taj Mahal over four glorious years ago. The Taj Mahal is good for something.
I pulled some other autos such Men "The Master" Nguyen and Erik Seidel, but I like the Gordon best.
