It’s the first of January, 2015. Unbelievable. Almost everyone seems to agree that 2014 went by very quickly and most are also glad that it’s over. We’re ready for 2015, are you?

On the other hand, it was a pretty good year for the poker world, with the World Series of Poker winners taking home record prize money. It was also a good year for The Texas Poker Store, as interest in playing poker and poker-related supplies continues to grow. We have some big plans for the new year in terms of expanding our product line and offering y’all some amazing deals which we can’t wait to share with you. We will also be running some more contests for chances to win great prizes; we know everyone enjoys those.

Of course, it will be a long eight or nine months until the next Texas A&M football season, which most of you know is our other passion. It was an up and down year for the Aggies, and the first year we’ve ever had contest winners who bet against our favorite team. Fortunately, we ended the season with a victory in the Liberty Bowl against West Virginia and a tantalizing glimpse of what is to come in terms of our talented young players. Then, in a HUGE “get” for the team and the 12th Man, Kevin Sumlin managed to lure John Chavis away from LSU to be our new defensive coordinator. We’re talking Wrecking Crew potential, folks, so we’re all very excited.Texas Poker Store Tournament Package

So bring on 2015; we will get into some poker tournaments while we wait for football season to begin in August.

The next two Aggie football games seem to have a lot in common. In back-to-back weeks they have the exact same schedule . . . they’re playing in Dallas, which means bussing to the Metroplex on Friday and getting to see family and friends from the area. Both games (this Saturday, September 20th against SMU and next Saturday, September 27th against Arkansas) will be played at 2:30 p.m. CST. Both will be attended by tons of Aggie fans, the 12th Man, because so many live in the area or will drive there. And of course, according to Coach Sumlin, the Aggies will prepare for each game in exactly the same way, because that’s what they do!Gig' Em

But that’s where the similarities end. This Saturday, the #6 Texas A&M football team will be facing an 0-2, non-conference, unranked SMU team, whose well-known coach, June Jones just stepped down. The game will be at Ford Stadium, where most estimate that maroon will predominate in the stands. The Mustangs are hurting big time, and this should be another opportunity for a lot of guys on A&M to get some significant playing time and for some slightly injured players to rest their injuries for another week. Look for a blow-out.

Next Saturday, the Ags will be playing Arkansas in a nationally televised conference game, aka the Southwest Classic at ATT&T Stadium. The Razorbacks may not be the best team in the SEC’s western division, but they beat Texas Tech handily and they’re big and strong, SEC-strong and as we all know, anything is possible in SEC football.

The feel of the felt Be sure to check out our next blog when we’ll break down the Arkansas game in preparation for our Predict the Score contest. In the meantime, have fun at the poker tables. Thanks to the 2:30 game times, there’s plenty of time to enjoy football and poker two weekends in a row.

Texas A&M Aggies vs SMU MustangsIt’s Game Day and we’re predicting that it will be an easy win for the Aggies today. The Southern Methodist Mustangs QB Garrett Gilbert will be trying to continue his completions lead by hitting his go to receivers Darius Joseph and Jeremy Johnson, but will that be enough to stop the 12th Man? We don’t think so. After all, it’s not a fair competition; remember that SMU has not defeated A&M since 1984.

the Casino X2 Poker Table from The Texas Poker StoreThat makes it a no-brainer for us to go all-in for the Aggies. So we have put away our poker tables and donned our Aggie shirts and are headed to Kyle Field to join the thousands of loyal die-hard Texas A&M fans to cheer for our Texas Fighting Aggies. After all, can anybody stop the Aggie offense? Can anybody prevent Mike Evans from balling or Johnny Manziel from being Johnny? Go Aggies! BTHOsmu!

The year long wait is over and the Crimson Tide has rolled into Aggieland hoping, no, praying that they can find someway to stop Johnny Manziel. The Aggie O line, meanwhile has to protect their star and fight off the likes of C.J. Mosely in the Tide’s D. On the other side of the ball, with Jenkins and company all back, we are hoping, no praying A.J. McCarron vs Johnny Football Manzielthat Snyder has the Aggie defense in game day form and ready to beat the hell outta McCarron, Yeldon, Cooper and company. A lot of big stars, a lot of players to watch.

Texas A&M vs AlabamaWe have put away all our poker chips and cancelled everything except, of course, our tickets, and are now headed to Kyle Field to join the over 90,000 crazed football fans and the 12th Man. We will be loud and proud and waving white. Let’s Go Ags!!  BTHOBama!!!
