Poker Words - A Poker Blog

Mostly a recount of my poker exploits along with a bunch of random other stuff just for fun.

Free Stuff Rocks

All the hard work I’ve put into this blog is finally starting to pay off.

I got an email from a publisher the other day. He wanted me to (If are guessing that the next words in this sentence are “write a book” then I'm flattered, but you are way overestimating both my writing and poker skills. If you weren’t guessing that then screw you. I could write a book if I want. Why do always have to try to hold me back?) review a poker book. Illustrated Guide To Texas Hold'em: Making Winners Out Of Beginners and Advanced Players. And he was offering to send me a copy.

Sure, why not I say. I’m a fan of poker books, and free stuff, so I’d be more than happy to review your book. Two days later I have a brand new poker book delivered to my door.

Just in case anyone else out there has thought about sending me some free stuff, but was afraid I might get angry, let me assure you that on the contrary, I would certainly appreciate it. The more related to poker the better, but if you feel the need to send me other things to try out, I’d be more than happy to review them. And it doesn’t have to be a book. I’d also enjoy music, movies, clothes, computers, an HD TV, a new car, whatever. I promise I’ll mention whatever items I receive on this here blog. The resulting purchases and publicity that you would receive from the huge amounts of people that read this blog, will more than make up for whatever the cost of the items you send me. It’s a win-win situation as far as I can tell.

Anyway, I’m about halfway through the book so hopefully I’ll have a review out later this week. Although I said the same thing about Harrington on Hold’em a month ago, and I’m still only halfway through that. Although I blame Harry Potter, and my wife for claiming first dibs on reading it. Plus the fact that I feel some responsibility to actually review the book since I did receive it on that condition might inspire me finish it sooner rather than later. In the meantime, feel free to send me more stuff.
