Last year's blog generated about 3,000 views in a month, broke a couple stories (Bruce Yamron's response on heads-up collusion rumors following Ivey's bracelet win & multimillion prop bet victory) The blog was apparently read by Dan Colman and generated a heartfelt email from him a week before he binked the One Drop.
UsualPoker will begin with retread highlights from last year to get into the flow. New materials should start flowing at the end of the month.
I am a professional author and amateur poker player - the blog will reflect that. I'd like to take a Studs Terkel approach, talk with regular people with interesting things to say and create something of lasting value. I'd also like to expand beyond the WSOP and describe Vegas as I find it, or it finds me. This could relate to my tribal flute-inspired travel writing project Chasing the Sun.
I'll likely be doing a weekly radio/Twitch show with LV grinder and radio personality Nathan Dowland. Details to be announced.
A Very Dark Game may be released as an ebook during the Series. This is up in the air, because a legitimate publisher is now taking a close look to see if it merits a traditional release - which would bump it back a year and allow for some serious investigative journalism to occur.
Fiction projects: I am currently engaged in a speculative hashtag novel project Testcut @4Hflute. The Japan mystery/thriller Arisugawa Park is still being shopped by my trusty agent.
From here on out I'll post links to blog articles here as they come down the pipeline, observations, ramblings, whatevs.
Viva la tortuga.
