From Gaming Alerts today comes this story about a poker player who smelled so bad he had to be kicked out.
As players of fine poker establishments everywhere, we applaud the decision of the unnamed Atlantic City casino to remove him. We have been at some tables where the funk of players was a little unsightly, but this guy seems to have brought that to a whole new level. And as we all know, playing poker takes concentration, which can be hard to summon when you are resting in a cloud of stench.
The best part of the story was the quote from the gentlemen
"There's no question I stink," said Wax. "I'm not denying it. I do have an odour. I've been playing for 17 hours."
Well, he may stink, but at least he got stinky in the way we'd want him to.
Head over to Gaming Alerts for the story.

You can't always get out to the casino floors to get in some great poker, but for the last several years, you have been able to easily catch great poker on television. The mass market appeal of the various TV shows, arguably led by the World Poker Tour, has created a massive upsurge in the popularity of the game. So Its great to hear that the show goes on, and apparently its going on Fox Sports!
Casino City Times has the story.
