Now that the major winter holidays are behind us, we know that many of you will be returning to your favorite weekly poker game. Some of you are undoubtedly looking for ways to improve your game by acquiring new strategies; you can learn so much by playing lots of online
poker (at least that’s what my husband, Jim “Pocket Bullets” Paris tells me)
and studying the successful techniques of some of the best poker players in the world.

Most well-known poker stars have at one time or another attempted to attract their followers by posting their own teaching blogs or videos. Of course, they used to write books, but with too few readers out there, teaching online seems to be the best way to go. 

PokercodeTwo of the best poker minds anywhere are Fedor Holz and Matthias Eibinger; between them they have won more than $50 million playing poker. That’s why they created Pokercode: an active learning model to help you aspiring poker stars absorb the wealth of information they share. As described by Holz:

“It is a holistic approach combining all the state of the art technology, where I teamed up with Matthias Eibinger, one of the best online players in the world, and combined it with my adjustments and my experiences from the live circuit,” said Holz about the Pokercode course. “No matter what goal you have, whether you want to become a better player, make more money, or become one of the best in the world, we will provide you the framework.”

They cover dozens of topics in minute detail, including body language, mindset, tells, bankroll management, ICM, and more. Holz and Eibinger filtered through thousands of hours of their learning, removed their mistakes, and created Pokercode. Of course, this kind of instruction is not cheap, but compared to hiring one of them (or any poker super-star) to give you private lessons, costing thousands of dollars per hour, it’s quite a bargain. There’s a one-time payment of $1,549 when you sign up to Pokercode via PokerNews. Just click on the link below to check it all out for yourselves; https://pokercode.com/?aid=sku_FuwZDXDIXuh4WC&utm_source=pokernews&utm_medium=referral&utm_campaign=pokernewsxpokercode .

Learn all you can and practice a lot by sitting in on as many poker tables, both online as well as live, as you possible can.

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?

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.

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!
