Welcome to the ultimate in placeholder posts, late on a Sunday eve. You see, there's a problem this evening: There ain't no worthwhile poker news out there this week, and there hasn't been in days. It's the typical Death Valley of poker stories in the days just preceding the WSOP, and this year it really sucks. Recent news searches on "poker" and similar terms turns up the following stories which I'm just dying to tell you about:
A story about a Nepalese poker cashier suing her employer over an alleged lack of pay for overtime worked;
Anne Heche's custody battle over her five-year-old son, who is reportedly allowed to participate in Daddy's poker games --- and 'Daddy' is Heche's ex and the news is so slow that Chops already bit on this one;
The assault charges against actor Ryan O'Neal being dismissed. O'Neal was accused of firing a gun 'into the air' in an argument with his son, who supposedly attacked him with a fireplace poker. Ryan O' Neal's been a poster boy for irresponsible behavior for three decades now; what more do we need to know?
The thing about Greg Raymer considering a run for Vice President on the Libertarian ticket, which is news so old and stale it's almost new again.
Anyhow, it really sucked looking for interesting poker stories the last few days. Better you should go wash your car. Twice.
And hope for a richer week. Sorry, gang. Better luck next time.
