Last Call For T-shirts

The Get It Quietly Range

Well, last chance before Vegas. Come on, how could you possibly sit opposite Phil Ivey without wearing a "Different Gravy" T-shirt ? Or TJ Cloutier without offering him your "Don't Worry, I'll Get Out Of It On The Dice" for $100 ? Do it now. The shirts are sent out from Germany and they take a few days to arrive at the best of times ; right now I believe they have some kind of association football tournament starting soon, so best to book early. If you'd like a particular design or text in a different colour, style or shirt then just Email me and I can sort it in an instant.

Finally a quick word about my motivation here ; I think these are funny, and I'd get a kick out of seeing other people wearing my ideas on their shirt. That's it. I'm not out to be a billionaire T-shirt mogul. I read an article the other day where the guy said "I feel that I’m slowly but surely shifting from being a pure professional poker player to more of a poker business man.", as if that was a step upwards. Each to their own, but that's not what I'm trying to do, here or anywhere else.

If you aren't looking to become a businessman, why did you seek pricing advice from Al Fayed?? :)

It's quality gear though mate. And cheaper than a sit and go or a bet on the river !

I am reminded of a 2nd XI cricket match at college. I went in to bat, played the first ball down the pitch and called "No".

"Oh no," said the wicket keeper, "a real batsman."

"I'm not a real batsman," I admitted, "I just know the words."

What does 'bokked' mean?

Jinxed, given bad luck by a prediction of success.

Check out my football tips at for many examples of bokking.

Slight change of subject.

Who out there is paying a woman to write porn for him?

"I’ve been writing a couple of commissioned porny pieces—the first for an American soldier stationed in Iraq narrates a soldier’s wife’s experience of her husband’s return and her waking up from a long sexual nap. The second, for an international poker player, gives the story of a secretary being anally punished for habitual lateness."

Who is my international poker-playing man of mystery?

I don't write and tell. Kiss and tell--absolutely. But write and tell? Never.

Thanks for the linkage,
Chelsea Girl

In that case we'll have to find out for ourselves. What we have to do is, at the table, start some conversation along the lines of "I'm having terrible trouble with my secretary at work. She's always late, I just don't know what to do with her".

See if anyone bites. Has the added advantage of, if you find your man, he'll be put off his game for a bit. Like if you're playing against David Williams you should take your shoes off and start wiggling your toes in the air.

I was hoping it was Isabelle or Vicky.
