The Miscellaneous Rantings of Marie-Lizette
I must admit that my trip to Vegas for pre-WSOP shenanigans has given me hope that the poker industry is ripe for hard working people to become successful on either side of the rail.
First off, hanging around with all my poker media peeps is always the brightest part of any day (especially with my bestie KevMath). With the Rio serving as the Mecca for poker and the trauma of Black Friday still burning in everybody's wounds, the who's who of poker press are all on hand for the 2011 World Series of Poker. Compounded by the fact that I've joined forces with Dan Michalski as Associate Editor for Pokerati.com, had discussions with Jon Friedberg regarding his anticipated re-launch of AllVegasPoker.com, and my return to Examiner.com as the Los Angeles Poker Examiner, I was able to enjoy feeling like a colleague on a level playing field rather than a squirrel trying to get a nut.
