I wanted to recommend a great DVD for no limit hold em poker players. My buddy at Universal loaned me a copy and it really helped beef up my game -- I just watched it earlier this week, so really, it just took a couple of days. There's a couple of others in the series that I'll check out, too, but the one I got is Master Bluffs and Tells, probably the weakest part of my game (and a major one in cards). Oh, and Vince Van Patten hosts the disc, the guy from the World Poker Tour. Highly recommended:

Also, what's everyone's favorite drink for card games? I generally hook up a reasonable bottle of single malt like Glenfiddich, but my generous friend, same guy who loaned me the disc, brought a bottle of JW Blue Label to one of the games last month, so it's gonna be hard to go back after that.
I usually try not to drink when I'm gambling at a casino, but when playing with friends, we usually take turns bringing bottles of scotch of our choice. However, being that me and all my boys are around 24 years-old, our choices are generally limited to the very, VERY basic single malts.
(But then I go home to my collection of 20+ very nice single malts!)
The DVDs really are pretty cool if you're a WPT fan...and I like to read on occasion, but poker books usually aren't terribly exciting. The DVDs are good for those laid back after work times.
Another player down here in LA -- I personally can't wait for another Vegas trip.
When playing pker though i never drink, unless it is online in which case i drink whatever is open in my house!
something to think about for you NL HE players: this game takes very little tradtional poker skill. basically it comes down to situational analysis and testes. agree??
mostly online cause i cant help smiling when i got the nuts....
Maybe sometime we should go to one of the sites online that let us play for tokens and have a game amongst the whisky lovers. lemme know.
oh yeah. i drink what's open. right now i get to select from aberlour's a'bunadh, the chieftain's (young lagavulin?), a bowmore 17 that is kinda too flowery for me and the laphroaig 15/ or cs 10
stay up you guys
