Hi Dr Pauly...questions, questions...
Why is there such a dearth of good writing about poker? I can think of only a handful of decent books about poker (Alvarez, the first Holden, McManus) but a ****load of dross - why is this the case?
On a related topic, when are you going to write the ultimate poker novel? Get cracking!!
Your blog makes frequent references to the joys of strippers, boozing, gambling and recreational drug use - please provide a link to the most debauched tale of yours involving one or some (but preferably all!) of the above.
You're lucky enough to travel lots on the poker circuit - outside of America, what would be your preferred country to live in and why?
Who is the biggest degenerate on the professional poker scene and why?
Is High Stakes Poker a set-up for the cameras? Sssssh, we won't tell anyone....
What's your opinion of the current president of the US of A? Who (of the major contenders, no fantasy Liz Lieu presidencies please) would you like to succeed him and why?
Are you sick of the 'corporatisation' (if that is a word
) of poker, even though this provides you with your livelihood? If there is a 'soul' of poker, has it been sold out to the highest bidder and Disneyified beyond belief a la
the current WSOP circus?
blondes or brunettes?
East Coast or West Coast?
lemons or limes?
natural or silicon?
Amsterdam or New Amsterdam?
Hemmingway or Mailer?
Tournaments or Cash?
Showing a monster bluff with The Hammer at the final table of the WSOP ME or writing a Booker Prize winning novel?
Thanks for doing this
