  1. Posted Tuesday at 10:13 AM How the hell was RodReynolds around to upvote that? I am now convinced that Rod IS VK. _________________________________________________________________________________________ Sorry, but this latest conspiracy theory is also wrong. As I've always said, my identity can easily be verified by FCP Bob by simply calling him and my caller ID will give my name, the author of Vegas Knights. _____ BigD McGee, Rod Reynolds, who will I be next??
  2. No big deal because nowadays there are few if any film companies that have the ability to take a 3x honored poker themed script (such as "Vegas Knights"), a script where an experienced script reader said it could easily be made into an entertaining poker movie, a script that is being sold relatively cheap, and a script that would have a built in audience of millions of poker players dying for a quality poker film, and make such a script into a successful movie.
  3. Things most overexposed as of October 20, 2022: - Political TV ads for the upcoming November elections. - Misleading/inaccurate TV political ads. - Camp Lejeune polluted water lawsuit ads going on for months. - The thousands of comments on the latest poker cheating scandal - stories/complaints about the homeless problem (with little being done).
  4. Hey Bob, I wonder if Daniel knows Magnes Carlsen is playing in the Main Event today (Tuesday).  Maybe he can interview him for the vlog, or let him hang out in his room there.

      I'm sure things are too busy and chaotic for him to try and find Magnes. 

  5. Well, I got some time so here's that info. Recently I was doing some spring cleaning when I came across a magazine page I had torn out of an old poker magazine over 20 years ago. The magazine probably was Card Player but I can’t tell for sure. The page includes a full page advertisement taken out by Larry Flynt, owner of Hustler Magazine and Hustler Casino. The page includes a photo of Flynt and a separate picture of Donald Trump holding 2 playing cards. Trump used to use that picture in his advetisements of his card tournaments. Remember this was 2001, when Trump was known as a cock
  6. Only 9 more days before it is revealed what famous person challenged another famous person to a big money poker match and wrote these words: "We both talk a good game, it's time now that we put up or shut up. I am throwing you the challenge. Are you man enough to meet it?"
  7. Wow, nice electric car, Daniel is doing his part to improve Vegas air quality.,, Wonder how much his little room bordering the poker area will cost per week.
  8. Leather Ass - One of the main skills needed to be a great limit low stakes poker player.
  9. Vegas Knights = a poker themed screenplay, or an abbreviation of the Vegas Golden Knights hockey team.
  10. The following comment was made by Mike "The Mouth" Matusow to another player at the 2004 World Series of Poker Main Event: "I've got big Cahonees. You've got tiny Cahonees."
  11. Here is a quote (paraphrasing) from old time gambler/poker player, Puggy Pearson: "You can beat up on a player and pound on him, and pound, and pound some more and he'll keep coming back if he thinks the game is honest, but if you cheat him out of a quarter he'll never play with you again." On a similar note, Amarillo Slim said: "You can shear a sheep many times but you can skin it only once."
  12. I'm not surprised that no one could answer the above trivia question, because the poker challenge mentioned occurred over 20 years ago... Some of you know that I wrote a poker themed screenplay. There is even a thread about it right here on Full Contact Poker. Here is the url to that thread: An Inside Peek At The Award Winning Poker Themed Screenplay “Vegas Knights" - General Poker Forum - FCP Poker Forum (fullcontactpoker.com) I bring up the script because the famous person who made the poker match challenge and actually wrote these words to the person he challenged- "We
  13. Trivia question: This comment/challenge wasn't made at the poker table but I've seen it in print. Both people involved are well known. One player challenged the other person to play a poker match for a considerable amount of money. Who was the famous person who challenged the other famous person to a heads up poker match and wrote this: "We both talk a good game, it's time now that we put up or shut up. I am throwing you the challenge. Are you man enough to meet it?" And for the record I'm not talking about the Doug Polk challenge or the Daniel challenge of Hellmuth. I'm re
  14. Doyle Brunson quotes from past High Stakes Poker shows: He called a huge reraise on 4th street with just a pair of Aces and a 10 kicker. Later, as a way to justify the call, he said: "When you don't make a pair for 8 hours, you go crazy." Comment he made to the other players after a very long time of being card dead: "I would kill if I could get two Jacks."
  15. No need to be nostalgic. Next year Daniel should park his RV at the Rio and take a 7 dollar 5 minute cab ride back and forth from Ballys during breaks. Also there will be no lines at the Rio's convienience stores and restaurants unlike what will probably be happening at Bally's. Why change a good thing. 😊
  16. "Bill Smith is the greatest player in the world after 2 beers, and one of the worse after 4. " I can't remember the exact quote but T J Cloutier (aka T J Cookier) said something similar to the above about former world champion Bill Smith who is now deceased. Cloutier also said Smith had great reading ability when he was halfway drunk.
  17. And then there's the poker term "bad beat". Here's a real bad bad beat!! Neil Peart Drum Solo - Rush Live in Frankfurt - YouTube
  18. And then of course there’s the sayings: “ON A RUSH” and “PLAY THE RUSH” Yes, the almighty Rush; you know, that period of time within a session when the world revolves around you. The chips just keep coming your way, with you winning pot after pot after pot. True rushes don’t happen often but when they do there’s nothing like it. What’s even scarier to the other players at the table is a player who knows how to take full advantage of a rush. The rushee often become looser and more aggressive at just the time the other players are starting to tighten up as their stacks dwindle
  19. Hey Guys, enjoyed your comments on Noel Furlong who recently passed. Forgot all about his famous call against Huck Seed with Ace 3 suited. Huck couldn't believe it when Noel turned over his hand.
  20. Well the 4.3 billion Resorts World has finally opened (only took 7 years). The Trooper has said the poker room is nice and the chairs are comfortable. He said the poker tables are small though. He also said the room had about 80% regs but that's probably to be expected with the regulars checking out the new room in town. It will probably take a month or two before the true character of the room shows itself. As far as the property itself, the below video starting at the 1:23 mark probably does the best job of showing the essence of the interior. New Resorts World Las Vegas Grand
  21. "I've got the Nuts." Probably the worse phrase you will hear your opponent say at the poker table. Most of you know it means that they have the best possible hand. I've heard several players say the phrase a second or two before they show their hand at showdown. I don't know why they choose to say it. Maybe, if they are a player who bluffs a lot, it's to reinforce the idea in their opponents mind that yes sometimes even they wake up with a great hand.
  22. From the above linked article: "The DOJ’s decision to not pursue the Wire Act ruling anymore makes it clear that it has once again accepted its stance that the Wire Act applies only to sports betting and not all forms of gambling. The ruling also makes it clear that interstate poker agreements are no longer under threat and interstate poker operators will be able to function as usual."
  23. Looks like happy days could be here again as the Department of Justice refused to appeal a recent court decision regarding online gambling, thus allowing interstate online poker to occur legally. DOJ New Stance On Wire Act Makes Interstate Online Poker Fully Legal (legalgamblingandthelaw.com)
  24. Everybody loves to make a successful "Hero Call" (a call with a lousy hand because you think your opponent is bluffing) Probably the greatest hero call of all time was when Stu Ungar called a player in a big pot with just 10 high when he rightly figured the other player missed their draw to a low straight. Many times the player seriously considering a hero call will say something like "This might be the worse call ever" before acting. They're letting everyone know they think something is fishy in the hand and also they might be trying to get a read on their opponent.
