This poker blog post is pure, raw emotion. In it, I wear my broken heart on my sleeve as I attempt to express what it feels like to not be able to attend the inaugural Global Poker Conference in Los Angeles. I hope my feelings resonate and strike a chord with poker fans out there who may at some point have felt similar pangs at seeing their poker dreams lie unfulfilled.
Unless you’re deeply involved in the poker industry, you may not be aware that the Global Poker Index will be hosting the inaugural American Poker Awards show later this week, on February 27th. This op-ed piece, from a recreational poker player, explains why the event, and the Global Poker Conference immediately preceding it, ought to matter to even casual poker players and fans of the game.
