If you missed it, Pam Anderson and Kid Rock had a live chat last weekend on pamelapoker.com. John’s friend sent a snippet of the session (which I’ll post later), but the highlights apparently were about baby poop and that Cindy Crawford was baby-sitting for them. (Not sure but I think the baby’s name is “kid Kid Rock”)
Pam’s been busy. A few days after the chat, PamelaPoker (part of the Doyle Brunson network) planned a march in Washington to keep online poker legal. Really. Is that wild or what? Not sure how I feel about the idea, but hey. Good luck. Don’t know if she was actually there or not.
Pokerwize has a cool idea for poker software: 3D characters AND VoIP. VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) is basically a way to make free (or cheap) phone calls from your computer. (Read all about it at VoIP Now, VoIP Lowdown, and VoIP-Sol.) But now you can actually voice chat with other players as you play. I can’t tell you much about the software as I’m downloading all 300 Mb of the full version right now. There’s also a llight Cbetcasino version. I’ve never heard of this and don’t know what Pokerwize is thinking, but they’re actually going to charge for the software after Sep 30. So if you want to try it out, go there now.
John and I have some tutorials planned for the future for complete newbies, so stay tuned if that’s you. We’re going to test Phil Hellmuth’s idea (I think it was his; it’s early Saturday morning and I’m groggy) that you can make money in online limit Hold’em ($1/$2 blinds) by playing tight. I’m modifying his hypothesis and we’ll test the idea and report back.
