Great Poker Promotions – and life

PokerWorks is partnered with PokerNews and that means  our readers qualify for the same promotions and bonus deals found at PokerNews.  Right now there are two fantastic deals going on at two of our favorite poker sites that are so big, if you play online poker you don’t want to miss them.  If you don’t play online poker, what the hell is wrong with you?

The first one happens on March 5th, it’s a shot at turning a freeroll  into a $1,000,000 guaranteed first place prize and a new car.  The PokerStars Sunday Million 5th Anniversary Freeroll.  And the second one has already started but there’s plenty of time left for you make it happen.  The $55,000 Skills Challenge at Full Tilt Poker. Of course this is shameless pimping but it’s also doing you a favor by letting you know there’s a lot of money waiting out there for you to win it!


I believe my new dog will be here on Sunday, brought to me by her present master Danielle, from CA to my door.  SWEET!


And I’m heading into Sin City early tomorrow to meet The G for breakfast.  And then a sit and gab with Marie, either at the poker table or coffee or who knows – just time to visit.  And then pick up my best little friend much later in the day, The Riot, to bring him home for the weekend.  It should prove to be a very long, fun filled day.


I haven’t played any online poker in a few days now, just way too damned busy.  This weekend will leave me with no time to play either. I really need to go back to a live poker game now and then just to feed on watching what other people do at the table.  I did have an email thread going with a new comer to the Pahrump area that was thinking about a small home game.  That may materialize too and could be a lot of fun.  Of course they are all quite a bit younger than me but that’s part of the fun, getting a view of their life as I try to bust their britches by taking away their chips.  I probably have a few poker stories they might enjoy hearing.


About Linda R. Geenen

The easiest way to begin is to start at the beginning. But where is that? At what point does one suddenly decide they are going to spend the rest of their life involved in the intricate art of the dance? What is the art of the dance? A game about people - played with a deck of cards. Poker! I stepped into the poker world in 1980 in Missoula, Montana. I didn't know anything about poker, couldn't tell you what the difference was between a bet and raise, or if a straight beat a flush. I had three boys to feed, needed a job and a dealing spot was open in one of the local bars. I played my first hand of poker in a 5 Card Stud game (with the help of one of my bosses) and that was it! I was hooked. I lived, breathed, slept, dreamed, ate, and talked poker. I eventually ran my own games (licensed by the County) in several different bars in Missoula, and at one point, managed the games in the bar where I started my first dealing job. In 1987 I traveled from Montana to Nevada to deal major poker tournaments, returning to Montana at the end of each one. In 1989, I opened The Mirage – along with 6,400 other people. In 1993, I moved to Gulfport, Mississippi, and opened Grand Casinos Poker Room, returning a year later to Las Vegas and The Mirage. In 1998 I opened Bellagio - along with over 9,000 other employees. In 2003, I dealt the final table of the Aruba Ultimate Bet Poker Classic event. Hey…I’m on TV! I had the privilege of being chosen as the dealer in the Howard Lederer videos that have been released on No Limit Holdem. I play poker on a regular basis and I deal to every name brand player that is still above ground and breathing air, the elite, the freaks, the ne’er do wells, the rich, the poor, the illiterate, the educated, the beautiful, the ugly, the superstitious, the rational, the sane, and the insane. Perhaps I am the one that is insane but if I am, I fit right into the game plan. Five nights a week I walk into the greatest, social melting pot known to mankind. I no longer dream about it but the art of the dance is prevalent in everything I do - see you there!
