I've been watching Spike TV's new series King of Vegas. Perhaps by the time its done I'll have a bit less vague idea of how to play poker. On the other hand I could probably play blackjack without making too much of a fool of myself.
It would be interesting to know what exactly is behind the rise of interest in poker over the last 3 or 4 years. Is it simply because its being seen more on the TV sports channels? Beats me.
