It’s almost impossible to believe, but it’s Christmas shopping time again. And each year, it seems to get harder and harder to find a unique gift for someone you’re pretty sure has everything!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

But do they?

Texas Holdem Mirror

Do you know any poker players? If you do, the Texas Poker Store (TPS) is having its Annual 10% off Everything Sale. That includes gifts for under the tree, like a Texas Holdem Wall Mirror or a 300 Poker Chip Set in an aluminum case.

This is also a great time to invest in a Poker Table for the family or your weekly home or office poker game. At TPS, we carry a wide variety of premium poker tables, from folding tables (and table tops) that can be easily stored when not in use to full-size professional poker tables and furniture poker tables with chairs and convertible dining tops.

Currently our most popular table is our “Lumen” kidney shaped, 101.5 inches x 46 inches, 10 players plus dealer positions. The table can be customized with your logo or name or whatever. Check it out at http://www.texaspokerstore.com/Lumen-Poker-Table

Normally I like to write my blogs about poker-related topics that interest me, and thus, hopefully, interest some of you as well. An exciting tournament (like the WSOP), a favorite poker super- star, a new poker movie, poker legislation and of course the Global Poker League have been featured among my numerous blog posts.

But every once in a while, I have to stop and remind myself what the Texas Poker Store is REALLY about. Because despite the value added by our (almost famous) TPS Blog, along with the bios and video clips of the great poker legends, the Texas Poker Store is about selling quality poker supplies at competitive prices and providing outstanding customer service to our customers. Yup, that’s right. It’s an online store, and like every other store, it’s about cutting a great deal for all the poker players out there . . .  as well as for us. With that in mind, I’m breaking with tradition in order to show you some of our best-selling poker tables. Who knows. . . they just might inspire you to become one of our many loyal fans and satisfied customers.

Currently our most popular table is our “Lumen” kidney shaped, 101.5 inches x 46 inches, 10 players plus dealer positions.

Basic price is $2,399.00 with free shipping. The table can be customized with your logo or name or whatever. Check it out at http://www.texaspokerstore.com/Lumen-Poker-Table

Each year the World Series of Poker (WSOP) crowns a Player of the Year (POY). I must admit that in the past, I haven’t paid much attention to who won, but this year was different. I knew my all-time favorite poker player, “Kid Poker” himself, was in the running; he entered the WSOP Europe in third place for the coveted title.

Daniel Negranu WSOP Player of the Year 2019Going into the Colossus, the final event of WSOP-E, the title was still up for grabs with four players vying for the POY title:  Daniel Negreanu, Robert Campbell, Shaun Deeb and Anthony Zinno.  In the end, however, with no one able to surpass his point total, Negreanu was crowned the 2019 WSOP Player of the Year.

The 2019 Player of the Year race included all open bracelet events of the 2019 calendar year, including events at the World Series of Poker at the Rio Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas (May 28 – July 16) and WSOP Europe at King’s Casino in Rozvadov, Czech Republic (Oct 15-Nov 4).

One could say that Negreanu had himself a helluva good year.He cashed six times at WSOP Europe prior to the Colossus event and cashed an amazing 17 times at the WSOP in Vegas. But perhaps his favorite event of 2019 had little to do with poker.
Wedding Day for Daniel and Amanda
On May 17, 2019, Kid Poker married the love of his life, Amanda Leatherman, in Palos Verdes, California, surrounded by family, friends and numerous poker stars. What an incredible year!

Hope to see you soon at the Poker Tables, maybe you can be next year’s POY!

Imagine our surprise this past weekend when presidential candidate Andrew Yang Tweeted his support for nationwide legalization of online poker.

Andrew Yang Online Poker Support

Within roughly 12 hours of his Tweet, it had registered more than 31,000 likes and was retweeted more than 5000 times. And many of the biggest names in the poker community jumped in to support Yang’s position.

Daniel Negreanu (@RealKidPoker) was one of the first to jump on Yang’s Twitter policy statement, Tweeting, “Ummmm YES!!! Poker players who want the freedom to play poker from home, this just might be your guy.” He went on to Tweet his support for Yang on a variety of issues.

Phil Galfond agreed with Yang and chimed in on Twitter, “What most outside of poker don’t realize is that MANY sites still operate in the U. S. but, because it is outlawed, the ones remaining are those who ignore all regulations including responsible gaming, security, anti-money laundering, etc. Legal poker makes Americans safer!”

Liv Boeree, who can’t vote in our election as a British citizen, still tweeted that she “really wanted” Yang to win the nomination. Rob Yong, the boss of partypoker, sent up prayer emojis in response to Yang’s tweet. Poker
vlogger Joey Ingram invited the candidate to appear on his YouTube show,
an offer which Yang accepted.

There were thousands of additional responses to Yang’s Tweet on Oct. 26, such as “Just got my vote” or “There’s no longer any doubt who I’ll be voting for in the next election” and “I’d be all in for that”. Perhaps the most hopeful response was this Tweet from @FunnyGuy6: “Breaking news: American poker players collectively donate $10 million to Yang in one
day.”

Will Yang’s stance on legalizing online poker persuade more voters to join the #YangGang? Perhaps a few.After all, many poker players are attracted to his campaign slogan: Make America Think Harder (MATH). So, will it help him win the nomination? Not a chance. But he’s certainly won a place in the hearts of poker fans.

Let us know what you think about this?
