This Armani Code gift set proves you don't have to be a high roller to smell like one. I know more about poker than I do cologne so when I tell you this one has "flavor notes" including "Lemon, Bergamot, Aromatic Mediterranean Notes, Guaiac Wood, Tonka Bean" we're both going to have to take their word for it. The scent does sound exotic - better than the typical "cigarettes and booze" odor of most casinos, and the set does come with a deck of cards.

There's a line in Kenny Rogers's "The Gambler" song that always bothered me. "You don't count your money when you're sitting at the table / There'll be time enough for counting when the dealing's done." It just makes no sense to me. My only thought is that he means if you're the big winner, get your kiester away from the table with your winnings before one of your opponents shoves a derringer up your nose?
Anyway, it's a fun song and the movies have their own cheesy appeal too, and you probably know someone (I'm looking at you, Grandpa) who'd get a charge out of owning all three of them.
Inspired by the Kenny Rogers Grammy Award-winning hit song, The Gambler, was the first movie in the longest-running miniseries in network television history! Rogers brings all of his charisma to the role of Brady Hawkes (aka The Gambler) and is joined by a star-studded supporting cast that includes Bruce Boxleitner, Linda Evans, Linda Gray, Dean Stockwell, Charles Durning and George Kennedy. Watch: The Gambler; The Adventure Continues and The Legend Continues!

Sounds like this year's World Poker Tour World Poker Finals, which happened Tuesday, had a nice little bit of drama going on - sorry we missed it. Not only was there a record number of draw-outs (over 200), young up-and-coming Jeff Forrest took the whole shebang for over half a million bucks. This also kicked up some dust over the Card Player of the Year race - check out the full story at CardPlayer.com.
When it was all said and done a young poker talent stood atop the field of 242 players as a WPT champion that won a title in his very first WPT event. Jeff Forrest, a 22-year-old rising poker talent beat Dave Inselberg heads up after the two outlasted an impressive final-table lineup that included Keven Stammen, Mohsin Charania, Nikolai Yakovenko, and Thomas Marchese.
