Cool Full-Motion Poker Videos By All360Poker

This is a pretty cool camera set-up that allows you to view and zoom around the poker room and table during a poker hand.  You control it by clicking within the video and moving the camera around; it's similar to how Google Street View works as far as I can tell.  This particular video was the big lay down of Ace/King by PhilHellmuth against David Benyamine in the WPT Championship.


Update:  Took down the video as it was too loud and would auto-play.  Just go to the link below to see the video technique in action...


Tip of the cap to you, Pokeratifor pointing this out in your post.  I hope to see more from All360Poker.


Until next time, may the felt be with you.

Bummed, But Keeping It In Perspective

With about 30 minutes until the first BBT5 freeroll, it looks like I won't be making it for this round, unless some last minute magic happens.  It's my own fault, so I can't complain.  Al was kind enough to think of me for the freerolls and send me an invite, but as I mentioned earlier, I've been having email problems.  I got to him late and doubt my screen name will be loaded in time.


To that end, it looks like I'll only be making the last 5 of the freerolls; regardless, I plan to play as many of the events for the whole BBT5 as possible.  I wasn't able to play many tournaments during and after BBT3, so this go around I'm going to do my best to hit them all.


I was thinking that all this free money should probably go towards some good, given the opportunity of making a score along the way.  If I'm lucky enough to land some free cash during any of the tournaments, I plan to donate 20% towards something worthy.  I think keeping poker blogging winnings in the poker blogging family sounds good, so if I happen to make some cash during the BBT5, I'll be transferring 20% to BloodyP, for further credit to Anna's Benefit.


Methinks I'll sleep pretty well at night if I can bring home a little poker blogger bacon and help out a little girl along the way.  Now I just have to figure out how to not be too donktastic throughout BBT5.

Hijacked Email

A few months ago my yahoo email was hijacked.  If you received a random email from me back in February with just a link or random jibberish, it wasn't me, but my apologies for it happening.  After working some things out, I went on my way figuring everything was okay.  Well I just realized that wasn't the case.


I haven't really used my yahoo email for several years and have just had any emails I receive there forwarded to my gmail address.  Turns out when I got jacked and changed all my info, I forgot to update my forwarding info with gmail.  In other words, I haven't been getting my yahoo emails forwarded since February.


To that end, if you emailed me there and I didn't reply, my apologies again, but I didn't know.  I've got nearly 1000 emails to go through, so I'll do my best to get back to everyone, no matter how long ago it was.


Thanks y'all.


Until next time, may the felt be with you.

BBT5 Is On

Well I've taken some time off from the blog - about a month, to be exact - and I'm ready to get back on the saddle.  Originally my laptop hard drive bit the dust, so I was without a computer for a while.  Sure I could blog from my iPhone, but I just didn't have it in me.  I'm happy to report I finally got my computer back up and running and, lo and behold, I've got something to blog about...
