  1. The “Poker Gives” Charity is the #1 poker charity in the country for a reason! (Sexton, Johnson and Fisher)

    The WPT was indeed a history affecting broadcast that changed the “culture” of poker and with the Travel Channel exposure to millions of new viewers, it allowed the world of poker to explode into households all over the world.

    With more than 50 WSOP cashes and a bracelet, Mike is the ambassador for poker, spreading events throughout the world, including a new stop in China (recently) concluded, plus a first ever event in South Africa.

    From one vet to another Mike, thanks for your service as well.

    I like the fact Mike acknowledges that new players (introduced online), play millions of hands and understand the power of betting. The learning curve is steep, with college students moving to poker as well.

    Big games are always there to promote yourself, but if you lose, move back down and regain your footing, swallow your pride and get the bankroll back.

    Club WPT is free and a great place to win seats into the World Poker Tour, so as Mike says, no one has lost a dime at clubwpt.com and it’s no charge to improve your skills. VIP members get access to former shows as well, so start today.

    Look forward to Donna speaking with some poker authors who are on the cutting edge of poker information directed at beginner, intermediate and advanced poker players.

    Good luck with your YouTube channel too!

    1. Thanks Al for your great comment, and let me take this opportunity to thank you for welcoming me into your foal of poker instructors when you were the Dean of Poker School Online “back in the day”… who could ever have imagined that poker and we would have come so far!

      You have contributed much to the game, and I am proud to call you friend.

      A Big Girl hug!
