Emily Redford → Geoff Manning: I've done a few talk radio shows on different subjects, it's not easy at all. It takes a lot of prep work.

Geoff Manning: Saying that the TPT needs help on it's live show is the understatement of 2009! We definitely have a better show with the addition of @coolwhipflea (or atleast when not talking football).

Emily Redford → Geoff Manning: Ok, so big kudos on the TPT. I like the idea of the live show during the game, but you guys need some help. At least you didn't talk about football for an hour again. ;)
Life has been busy, what an understatement. When you're married to a guy who loves poker, you learn to love the game. Well at least I did. I used to tease my husband and tell him he's married to the game and I'm just his mistress, so when he walked in the door and told me he's ne...
I still remember my very first game. I was 24, dating this guy who convinced me to play in a charity game at our favorite bar. Up until this time, my history with card games was limited to rummy and go fish so I was extremely nervous that I would completely bomb and embarass myself and him. He calml...
"Can you do me a favor?" By getting asked (or axed- also hate this!) this question you're automatically expected to comply with whatever it may be. Even when you answer no- they still ask for the favor!
It seems that most of the casino/racetrack re-do's kind of planned for this. All of the ones I've seen have some 'extra space' towards the center of their floors where they could easily shuffle some slots around and put in tables. I think training will be the big concern.
Wow this got heated. At the end of the day- here's my 2 cents... Poker is still gambling because even if you play 'perfectly' you can still lose. We all know that good play pays out in the long run, but hand for hand all the poker tracking software in the world can't prevent a suckout or some wild unpredictable player. I think cheating in this case is simply defined as removing your own element of luck, while forcing the other players to deal with it. Granted some of these situations toe the line by diminishing luck- but they can't remove it totally. Is what those players did unethical (the big shots with the swed), IMO yes. I believe being a good player is playing your OWN game well- and not relying on other peoples information. Posting hands and getting advice here is a way to improve your own game- not everyones play against a specific other player. There is a difference. Once we start to police everyone ethical behaviors- we're done for.
