Pressure Poker by Scott Gallant

Pressure Poker by Scott Gallant

I'm writing this post knowing full well that many of my readers are in Vegas or at least headed that way. While I'm bummed that I can't make it this year, I know that eventually I will get to meet many of the broggers I've yet to meet.

I'm hoping the Bash at the Boat is in my future, which would be the shiz. We'll see. For now, I ponder, if you write a post and no one is around to read it, did you really right it in the first place? Hhhmmm...moving on...

A few months ago I got an email from DoubleAs inquiring if I could help him with the cover of his book. I have to admit, I was extremely flattered that I would show up on his radar in regards to his book. Specifically, he had an idea for the cover, but couldn't accomplish it on his own, so he went to the folks he knew would be there to help...fellow broggers.

Here's the problem though...I'm really not very good at doing this stuff. Sure I've thrown a few banners up recently for folks and I've helped others out with their templates in the past, but I really don't know much. For the most part, I'm throwing out cookie cutter banners that don't require much work or thought. When I do a banner, it is simply because I'm trying to learn...and for the most part...from scratch. As a result I spend a lot of time with trial and error and hoping I get it right eventually.

When Scott came to me, I thought his idea was hawesome, but I have to admit I wasn't sure how to get it done. I started playing around with ways of doing it, and eventually started to get it going, but I wasn't happy with my end result(s). I kept at it for a while cause I really wanted to get it done, but eventually I started to realize I would not be able to get it done in the time frame he needed.

Later that day I was preparing an email reply to Scott letting him know there might be some better broggers out their for the job, but right as I was about to hit Send I got an email from him. Thankfully, he had also sent the inquiry to Duggle and he had been able to get it done. A small part of me (my left pinky) was bummed...not that Duggle was able to get it done, but that I was not able to get it done. More importantly, I was very happy Duggle had gotten the pic done for Scott cause I knew that was a big part of getting his book on the market.

For the record, Scott I can't wait to get your book in the mail soon, and Duggle, I think your pic looks hawesome.

All that said, I think it is time you click on the picture to the left and go buy your copy. Using that link will help DoubleAs out so go do it yo. I purchased mine today and I should have it within a week. Booya!

In the past I have mentioned certain broggers who are "what's right about this poker brogging community." I'm not sure if I've ever mentioned DoubleAs in that group before, but let it be known right here and now, Scott is what is right about this community. Keep up the great poker playing and brog writing Double.
