Joining the Team at Poker Update

I’m proud to announce that I am officially part of the team at Poker Update. I have been looking for a place to get some more exposure for my writing on a regular basis that offers the freedom to write about anything I like, and with Poker Update I have found exactly that. After working with the team on a few smaller projects, they invited me to become a larger part of the site, and they offered me what every writer wants.

They are going to pay me to write whatever I want and they are going to promote it to thousands of people.

Think about that for a second. What a great gig! I did have to set up something like a schedule, so I will be writing two primary articles every week and doing some interviews with pros and poker industry personalities. This will involve a lot of writing every week, so I could use your help. If you know a poker celebrity or industry person who is willing to do an interview, send them my way and I can get them some exposure. If you have a subject you would like to see me write about, let me know and I will add it to my list. The best way to send me article ideas is to contact me on twitter @foxpokerfox. If you follow @pokerupdate they will also be tweeting out links to my articles whenever they go up.

With my monthly column in Bluff Magazine, occasional stuff in CardPlayer (I’m featured in Final Table Take Down this month by the way), writing for Poker Update, this blog, and other random writing gigs that pop up, I’ll be managing my tendinitis carefully! If you see me shuffling chips at a poker table, remind me to cut it out because it makes my wrists and forearms hurt that much more and it’s a hard habit to break.

My trip to the Borgata was fun, though not terribly profitable, but I knew the 3rd, 5th, and 7th place finishers, and I learned some things while I was there. I’ll be covering the trip, and the venue, in an upcoming article on Poker Update. Congratulations to Blake Bohn on another deep run, he is an incredible player and destined to be the leader on the Minnesota all-time money winner list within a few years.

This weekend is the MSPT at Running Aces, which should draw a huge field with first place near $100,000, and as soon as that is over it will be time to get ready for the biggest tournament series of the year in Minnesota, the Fall Poker Classic at Canterbury Park. It’s a good time to play poker in Minnesota!
