Poker with the pros...

Yesterday, I played in a charity poker tournament for Fence Magazine.

It was a lot of fun, for a good cause, and I got to meet and chat with Howard Lederer, Annie Duke, and some cool literary types like Myla Goldberg.

I didn't end up at the same table as the pros, but I did get to chat with them and listen to some of the poker advice they were giving. Even in just 30 minutes of talking to a crowd of complete newbies, they were clearly excellent teachers.

The reason I first started playing on Full Tilt Poker was to try to win a ticked to Howard Lederer & Annie Duke's Fantasy Poker Camp. Well, now my interest in that is renewed. It would definitely be a worthwhile experience.
