Jackpot Jay at ESPN.com
ESPN has a new poker columnist on the poker section of their website -- Jay Lovinger. He's going to be playing in the 2004 WSOP and chronicling his adventures until the 2005 WSOP. An excerpt:
I'm going to tell you about the metamorphosis poker has undergone, how it's wormed its way from the shadows into the klieg lights of American entertainment, and how the faces of its central characters have changed. How guys named Chan and Nguyen replaced road warriors like Amarillo Slim and Texas Dolly, how the game was wrenched from the hands of high school dropouts and pool hustlers and bootleggers by millionaire marketeers and mathematicians.Sounds pretty cool.
