Surely You Can't Be Serious...

Several months ago NBA journeyman, Paul Shirley was asked to post some of his thoughts during a Phoenix Suns (his team at the time) road trip. The result was pure hilarity. As the Suns eventually reached the playoffs, and Shirley's thoughts from the earlier road trip had become wildly popular, he was tapped to keep a running diary of his experiences in the playoffs. Again, from his discussion of checking out attractive female fans from his spot on the bench, to his tales of playing cards on the team charter, Shirley proved to be phenomenally witty. So much so that back on June 13, I wrote as follows:

"Whether or not this guy keeps playing, NBA.com, or some other media outlet needs to capitalize on his abilities as a scribe. I would happily pay some sort of subscription fee to access a full-season journal on NBA.com, and given how cheap I am, that’s saying something."

Well, in true journeyman form, Shirley isn't exactly hooked up with the NBA right now, but there is some good news. Yesterday my buddy Dez emailed me a link to the this site. That's right boys and girls, Paul Shirley is keeping a running journal on his life in basketball for ESPN. From my initial read, it's somewhat undefined how long he'll keep this up (given that his basketball career could take him just about anywhere), but at least for the time being we've got the funniest basketball writer around pumping out material. So check out his comments. And if you've got ESPN Insider, check out the transcript of his recent online chat, which is phenomenal. Generally I rue the day that I signed up for Insider, but at least for this month, the chat made it worth the money.

One of your articles is good but other are average. Your blog is good anyway.

Texas Hold'em is the most popular poker game in the world. Almost all the major tournaments are played in this version. You can use the set betting limits or no limit play. The basic rules of the game are relatively simple and can learn quite quickly, but in the achievement of mastery can take a long time. This article presents the most important rules of Texas Hold'em poker.
GAME
In Texas Hold'em usually plays in a standard 52 card deck. The game can participate from two to ten people. Before the start you need to determine which player will be a symbolic "dealer" in the hand. This does not mean that the player actually has to deal cards (online cards are dealt automatically and casinos deal with the dealers). Place this player marked a special ring (called "dealer button" or "button"). It lists which players must pay for their blinds (called "blinds"). These plants are the nucleus of the pot, so that every hand is "anything to win". Always two players must pay the first blind bets (they are put into the pot before the players see their cards). One person pays the "small blind" (called "small blind"), and another on the left - the "big blind" (called the "big blind"), usually two times the small blind. What symbolic hand dealer is changing, so that each of the players from time to time is the dealer, paid a small and big blind - all at the same frequency. Pedro start bonus

When the blinds are already in the pot, every player gets two cards face down. These are the player's hole cards (called "hole cards"), for inspection only to the owner and he can only use them in the game. Then the middle of the table is gradually taught the five community cards that all players can use to create the best hand. Of the seven cards available to make the best possible five-card hand.
ROUND FOUR AUCTION
Before the flop (PRE-FLOP) - first round of betting. All play that occurs before detection of the first three community cards (the "flop") are referred to as "pre-flop". Players are watching their hole cards and have a chance to play first.
The player sitting to the left of the person who paid the big blind, the first decision. This item is called "under the gun" (literally "under the gun" / "under the gun"). This is because it is the worst in terms of decision-making.
Each player has at this stage to play the following options:
Belt / fitting of / Reset card (called fold): Playing it means giving up the game later in the hand and muck. Match, you lose the right to the money inserted into the pot, even if you have paid the blinds.
Check (called call): Playing it means that the alignment of early plant you want to continue playing the hand. Remember that after the flop will also be able "to wait" (called "check"), if no one before you has not paid the first bet.
Skewer (called raise): Playing it means that you want to place a bet higher than its predecessor. If your round of betting nobody else's set, your play will not puncture, only placing a bet (ang "bet"). Seat Skoda
