  1. Now we're talking some fun stuff here....thought you guys might like this..


    Some dream of full house at Neonopolis
    FOX Sports Net is turning the televised poker tournament experience into a live spectator sport in downtown Las Vegas.

    Three of the movie theaters at Neonopolis are being converted into the Pokerdome, where about 200 people will be able to watch weekly tournaments. Players' cards will be revealed live on televisions in the arena, and the players will sit behind a soundproof, one-way glass, so they can't see or hear fans' reactions, said George Greenberg, executive vice president of programming and production for FOX Sports Net.

    "We're creating the first-ever poker arena, with all the bells and whistles," Greenberg said. "This is going to be NASCAR for poker."

  3. Don, I am not seeing too many brothers at these events.

    Is that some sign that "NASCAR Poker" is a racist sport?

  5. Hmmm, I'm sure Phil Ivey (Phil Ivey played Andy Beale heads up and won 16 million. ...
    ), and Johnny Chan, John Juanda, and the other members of the human race, not necessarily the caucasian portion, might think things are going pretty well, LOL.

    Poker is a pretty "equal opportunity" game, just like trading.

    As for Nascar.....hmmmm? No comment...
