He is now fronting a new Patti Smith Tribute Band.

Here’s Bernie now, with his:

Rock ‘n’ Roll Riggers!

***

Bernie was a maverick,
Bernie was a bro!
Bernie got votes and then Bernie got bigger…
Bernie got something, Hillary got more!

The Elite Players in World Poker

The Elite Players in World Poker

It’s no secret that there is a lot of fun to be had with casino games. But the fun only usually comes if you are betting responsibly and getting skilled enough to get to win some games. Whether you’re playing blackjack with coins, roulette with chips or Bitcoin slots, you’ll always want to increase your stack.

In poker, the amount and rate at which players earn money will vary drastically, depending on whether they are playing tournaments or cash games. But there are some players out there who are just plain amazing at whatever medium they choose. 

Following on from our feature of the most successful female poker players in the world, here are the elite players in world poker right now.

Daniel Negreanu

Daniel Negreanu was nominated the Global Poker Index player of the decade on the strength of dependably impressive performances on the felt. His largest live cash win to date was the $8.28m he took for finishing runner-up to Daniel Colman in the Big One for One Drop at the World Series of Poker. Negreanu is also the only player to win World Series bracelets in Las Vegas, Europe and Australia.

Negreanu has become a famous figure. This is due to his multiple TV tournament wins and the fact that numerous poker awards have been bestowed upon him. He has been able to capitalise on that success with various promotions and endorsements. As one of the most famous players, he is also one of the most analysed and his style is considered somewhat unconventional and risky.

Not just a Texas Hold’em tournament player, Negreanu places considerable emphasis on the merits of playing many different forms of poker. And he practices what he preaches; he can hold his own against specialists in other poker variants. He has his own website where you’ll find poker tips, videos, a blog, a forum and even a trophy room.

Antonio Esfandiari

One of the most well-liked poker players on the live tournament scene, Esfandiari ‘The Magician’ is known for his extravagant chip tricks. He has appeared on several TV shows and even some movies alongside Robert De Niro, Justin Timberlake and Bruce Willis.

The Iranian-born pro has made six figures every single year since 2004 and has two World Poker Tour titles to go with his three World Series of Poker bracelets. On July 3, 2012, Esfandiari beat 47 other players to win the largest buy-in tournament in history, the Big One for One Drop. He earned a cool $18,346,673 and turned himself into a household name.

His style is very aggressive, with the intention to push the pressure onto the other player and force a mistake. It’s clearly a successful strategy but can mean that Esfandiari is either out on the first day of a tournament or at the final table. There is no middle ground between the two.  

Erik Seidel

Seidel was runner-up to the legendary Johnny Chan in his first major tournament, the 1988 World Series of Poker main event. His final hand that day has become poker legend and was featured in the Matt Damon and Edward Norton movie Rounders.

His best career year came in 2011, with million-dollar prizes on two continents highlighting a prodigious year in which he took home more than $6.5m. Seidel has eight World Series bracelets and is a 2010 Poker Hall of Fame inductee.

He has an adaptive style and reads the game rather than trying to impose his will on the play. It’s made him a consistently big earner on the scene for decades.

Phil Ivey

Dubbed the Tiger Woods of golf due to a similar appearance to the golfer, Ivey first began to develop his poker skills in the late 90s. He also developed the nickname ‘No Home Jerome’ from the ID card he used during his underage playing days.

Ivey has been pronounced as one of the best poker talents around, won his first bracelet in 2000 and has gone on to accumulate 10 World Series of Poker bracelets. Ivey is currently tied with Doyle Brunson and Johnny Chan for the second most all-time number of bracelets won. And at the age of 38, he is the youngest player to ever win ten.

In the 2012 Aussie Millions he took A$2,000,000, then in the same competition in 2014 took away the biggest win of his career with A$4,000,000 and repeated the trick in 2015 with A$2,205,000.

Ivey is an aggressive tournament player and will raise a lot pre-flop because he has the post flop talent to read the game and the player.

Mongolian Jokes

Mongolian Jokes

When I was young, there was a large statue of Lenin in Ulaanbaatar. In 2012, the Mongolian government removed the statue, denouncing Lenin as a ‘murderer’.

In that same year, I heard this joke:

A Muscovite watches a communist demonstration next to a large statue of Lenin, upon which is inscribed, YOU DIED, BUT YOUR WORK WILL LIVE LONG!

A passerby reads the inscription, sighs, and says, “It would have been better had you lived a long time and your work died.” Continue Reading

4K Glossy News PODCAST 069 (11-14-16) The Post-Election Rundown

4K Glossy News PODCAST 069 (11-14-16) The Post-Election Rundown

The election is over, Donald Trump won, and here’s what it all means.

I called it wrong. That’s the long and short of it, no two ways about it. The polls were within the margin of error, but all the analysts and pundits called it wrong and so did I.

I suspect this means pollsters will be given far less credibility in the next election or few, and earn far less money for their prognostications, and well they should.

I was wrong. The betting markets were wrong. The poll analysts were wrong. Welcome to a Trump presidency. Continue Reading

Morsi’s Democracy (Song Parody, NSFW)

Morsi’s Democracy (Song Parody, NSFW)

This parody of ‘Chinese Democracy’ by Guns ‘n’ Roses is dedicated to everyone who has ever stood up to political Islamists. 

If the theocrats really do believe hellfire exists, then every moment of their life should be one of the utmost terror and foreboding.

Hellfire awaits the Jihadi

Gonna find out for yourself

Endless torment, Jihadi

You’re gonna leave this world,

Cast down forever below the earth

 

Rotten pigfucking missionary

Crack-smoking Dawahmongering visionary

Hatin’ on them pesky gays ‘n’ Jews

Hellfire is for those who lose

I know that you’re a worthless prick

An enchanting story-peddling dick

Blame it on the Coptic guys

You will meet your end and greet the flames of hell now

 

Yeah subhuman vermin shit like you

Gonna win your virgins by raping?

But even with a little dried-up dick

All you got left is masturbation

I’m gonna gas the rats, is it really really such a crime?

 

Your bullshit don’t really matter

You’ll discover hellfire for yourself

No you don’t really matter

So you can hear your judgment from

Somebody else

 

Cause it would take longer than eternity

To consummate your vile damnation

Even with your tearful eyes

Satan smirks at your masturbation but all you got is

Damnation for all time

 

Your bullshit don’t really matter

You’ll discover hellfire for yourself

No you don’t really matter

So you can hear your judgment from

Somebody else

 

Keep your broke-ass lil fuck puppet locked up inside

Beat her, choke her, rape her, hear your children cry

She’ll come and haunt you in your prison cell

And she’ll choke you! Blazing barbed wire in hell

Nothing can ever make you stop

Hell’s torments, he screams, your eyes will pop

No more hypocrite’s repentance

Cos you’re forever out of time!

What the Presidential Candidates Are Doing—Right This Moment

What the Presidential Candidates Are Doing—Right This Moment

With the Election mercifully only hours away, the three major candidates (and one cameo candidate) are done putting the final touches on their respective Frankenstein campaigns. Using an unholy combination of satanic ritual coupled with classified NSA technology that hasn’t been leaked just yet, GlossyNews is pleased to reveal what each candidate is doing right this moment.

Gary Johnson–Libertarian:

1) Imagining there is a zero behind his poll numbers.

2) Revisiting his debate points and pretending he actually rated debating.

3) Regretting deleting all his porn.

4) Listening to Kaleo–“Way Down We Go” while he slowly rocks back and forth.

5) Applying for Canadian citizenship.

Hillary Clinton–Democrat:

1) Pondering how to gracefully never invite Beyonce and Jay Z to the White House. Continue Reading

Honest Adolph Launch Day! Thanks for Your Support!

Honest Adolph Launch Day! Thanks for Your Support!

On this historically significant day, November 5…

The day of gunpowder, treason and plot…

The day of establishment intrigue and anti-establishment counter-intrigue…

I am pleased to announce that Vol I of my near-future speculative fiction novel, Honest Adolph, is finally on the shelves! The ebook is available at the links below.

For those unaware of this bittersweet satirical novel of mine, here is the blurb:

In the near future, the Presidential election stirs the hearts of many.
The warmongering Republican and Democratic establishment are expecting to sweep the board, and fortify the current neoconservative/liberal interventionist consensus.
Dissident Republican Senator Saul Friedman is one of the very last of a dying breed of libertarian Republicans.
Expelled from the party, Friedman implores his old friend Adolph Adams to run for the presidency. The plainspeaking and sober Adams is deemed a pitiful joke by the establishment, but he does have some success in garnering votes. However, it is simply impermissible that a non-interventionist could ever gain the Democratic ticket. Adams is no more welcome in the Democrats than Friedman was in the Republican Party.
Is there any hope at all that Adams can roll back the tide of interventionist barbarism?
Either way, he faces some truly formidable and cunning foes, who will not relinquish their privilege lightly. Caught between a rabble-rousing firebreather Republican Frontrunner, a hideously callous Democratic leader and various cynical, unprincipled, talented mediocrities, it is not only the career of Adolph Adams that is in peril.
If his enemies can only but once have their way, Adolph’s defiance of the status quo will eventually cost him his life.
Can this sober and levelheaded man of principle manage to evade the devious plots and schemes of ‘the great and the good?’
