First, a brief moment of silence for the departure of Shana Hiatt from the World Poker Tour. Apparently, she is moving on to other endeavors. That, my friends, is a crying shame for poker fans everywhere. The girl is smokin'!
This was forwarded to me at work today. Apparently, Daniel N. has joined the Poker Brat in separate quests for poker world domination.

OK, so how do I compete with that? Or for that matter, how does THIS guy compete with that?
He won $600 playing poker in 2004 and now he is a poker columnist? A syndicated columnist? Man, I've got to give the guy credit for being in the right place at the right time. I'm assuming he was a writer of some sort for San Antone and pitched this column to them (as I did here in Tuscaloosa.) The problem for me is his market is tons bigger. (But I suspect my bankroll is tons bigger, ha ha!)
