"I don't know if there's anyone who's put in more effort in our community who's gotten less than you."

Amen, brother.
But today, that has finally changed.

Yup, I finally got a sponsor.
Let's hope this is the first of several.
First come, first serve.

I've put so much damn work into this poker blog, it's nice to get a little payback (allow me to stress the little part). I'm simultaneously struck by both shock and happiness.

So, I just woke up and instead of heading to the boat to play poker, I'm going to start up an uber-uber post for you. Hell, I might start drinking, too.

For now, in celebration of this momentous occasion, here's 100 puppies to symbolize the joy in my heart. Edit - Maudie asked for kittens, too, so I obliged.

Feel the love:
edit - i removed the pics - was killing this page. 109 adorable puppies and kittens were featured. i'll likely put em back when this page hits the archive.

I just got permission from a reader, Mr. Everhart, to post this email he sent me.

Remember, if you aren't playing on Party Poker, you are deeply and profoundly retarded.

Stop riding the poker short bus and sign up with Bonus code IGGY, damnit.



I have never played on Party Poker before. I play on Poker Stars, Full Tilt Poker and Paradise Poker.

I read your blog and I see the shilling for Bonus Code Iggy all the time.

I always think, "Yeah, but I'm doing well at all my other sites, and I hear the graphics suck, and the customer service sucks and I just want to go against the grain...cause I'm that kind of mick."

Lately, I've decided to diversify my roll, so I dumped a few hundred dollars into Party to see what you've been talking about.

Holy shit. I say, goddamn.

They're so bad. I mean, call down with Jack high bad.

Call three straight from the SB bad. I couldn't believe it. I sat 2/4 for two hours and doubled the 200 I deposited, not to mention unlocked Bonus Code Iggy.

Thanks, Iggy.

Absolutely - you can post my email. I'm surprised you haven't already, but thanks for asking. I figured the second I sent it to you it becomes public fodder. That's exceedingly considerate.

More info? Sure!

-I've been playing the 1-2 and 2-4 "Beginners" and regular tables. They have pumped me up $800 since I deposited on, I think, Thursday night. The Beginners
tables are only slightly better than the regular ones.

$200 turned into a freaking grand on 1-2 and 2-4 Party Hold'em. It took me two months to get to $1200 on Full Tilt after depositing $600 and playing the
same limits. Granted, I'm running better on average, but that's a lot of bets in a short period of time.

Check out this hand. I'm not the donk w/ the A2o.

But I was at the table and got curious about the losers hand. He three bet and then CALLED a cap on the river w/ 9 high.


Honestly, I think throwing up this hand history alone can do more for Bonus Code Iggy than anything I say:
