Vinny The GrinderBy The Grinder

Continuing with interesting word play related to poker, I’m sure you have all heard of anagrams. It’s simple. You take a word or a sentence, rearrange the letters, and form new words or sentences. You’ll be fascinated to know that many of the new word/words mean something similar—and this is particularly true with names. The best possible solutions to name anagrams reveal an eerily close-to perfect depiction of the  person. Again, the mind might choose to see what it wants, nevertheless, this is one of nature’s inexplicable gimmicks. Let’s start with our own Texas Poker Store family members, and continue with celebrity poker professionals. I thoroughly enjoyed this exercise, and I hope you do too!

Name Anagram
Jim Paris I Rip Jams How true! Our Chief Dealer, who previously produced the great Buddy Miles, loves Rock ‘N Roll jams.
Paul Marvin Rival Up Man I agree. Paul’s a good Heads Up player. I wouldn’t want to rival up with him heads up.
Vineet Bailur Brave Inutile Bingo! Brave in poker, inutile in everything else.
Phil Hellmuth Huh? The Limp II I’ll take it. He is a tight player. No wonder he won so many tournaments. A master of pot control.
Daniel Negreanu Genuine Adrenal Unreal! Daniel walks the walk, and talks the talk too. Anyone who knows The Kid, knows that he is full of adrenalin.
Doyle Brunson Busy Londoner Age is no barrier for this poker maestro, who is still busy traveling the world playing poker.
Antonio Esfandiari If Insane Adoration If you watch High Stakes Poker, then you know The Magician is constantly thankful and appreciative of all poker players at his table.
Phil Laak Alpha Ilk A prototype among the best.
Tom Dwan Mad Town Indeed! Hyper aggressive is an understatement.
Stu Ungar Guru Ants A Guru of poker with the stature of a thin, frail, little ant who always ended up with the biggest stack of poker chips.
Vanessa Selbst Vast ‘n’ Baseless Absolutely. Her style is relentless and aggressive.

Good luck at the tables!
