LVAPoker Debuts With Poker-Book Excerpts

Last February, Blair Rodman and I were playing at the same table in a poker tourney connected with the International Rugby 7s tournament that was held in Las Vegas. Blair needed change and threw me a chip, which I picked up and put on top of my stack.

“What are you doing”? Blair barked. “I need change. You ever play in a tournament before?”

I didn’t feel too badly, since I’d scooped the previous pot and assumed I’d simply missed a chip. But it got me thinking about all the little nuances involved in playing poker that new players have to learn the hard way.

I brought it up to Blair later and we started firing ideas back and forth. Before long, we’d agreed that there absolutely needed to be a book about how to get involved in poker on all levels and that Blair would write it. Tentatively titled Don’t Be a Donk, the book should be out by the beginning of next year. But that’s not the reason for this entry.

I’m writing to tell you how you can get a preview of the book now. Because the World Series of Poker is such a big part of poker itself, more than 100 pages of Donk are devoted to the WSOP. And to coincide with the tournament, as well as to help kick off our new website, LVAPoker.com, we’re releasing that section of the book in stages this month.

The first section is already up. It describes the history of the World Series, including several episodes that Blair (and in many cases, I also) experienced personally. It’s a great read and it’s free.

We’ll be putting up a sign-up button where you can register to win a free book and get a big discount offer when Don’t Be a Donk is ready. But for now, you can learn everything there is to know about playing in the WSOP simply by going to LVAPoker.com and checking it out.
