Thanks to PokerUpdate and James Guill for the WSOZ piece! Very thankful to those who've given my passion project a little love. Can't wait to debut hard copies next week at the WSOP!

This Friday PokerNews'  Super High Roller Bowl contest comes to an end. Free to sign up and only takes a minute. Can win a VIP trip to Vegas. I usually don't push such contests, but this one is legit. I recommend you at least sign up and see what happens!

Last week I had the opportunity to play in the biggest cash game of my life. I managed to win nearly $8,000 competing against some of the best poker players in the world, including Phil Hellmuth. In my latest Hold'em with Holloway column on +PokerNews, I recall two memorable hands from the match -- one that was called an absolutely sick laydown. 
In the latest Holloway with Hold'em, Managing Editor Chad Holloway examines Alex Torelli's fold against him in the $25/$50 Poker Night in America cash game.

My latest Hold'em with Holloway strategy piece on +PokerNews sparked a good debate on what constitutes collusion in poker tournaments. It's definitely interesting to think about.

Yesterday my World Series of Zombies (WSOZ) comic, about a zombie outbreak at the World Series of Poker, debuted. Physical copies won't be available until later this month at the WSOP, but digital copies are available right now on ComiXology​ for just $1.99 each. If you'd like to get a copy, here's the link ->  http://bit.ly/1FRF04A

It's been a long time in the making, but I am pleased to officially reveal a passion project I've been working on... World Series of Zombies (WSOZ) is a comic book about a zombie outbreak at the World Series of Poker. Sounds silly, and it is! Was a lot of fun to create. Digital copies are available today at ComiXology​, and I will be selling physical copies for $5 at the Rio all summer long. 
This summer, the World Series of Zombies (WSOZ) comic book will premiere at the 2015 World Series of Poker. Digital copies available now.

Every once in awhile the poker world gives me the opportunity to meet a celebrity. Here in Monte Carlo that was Sean Astin, who you may best know as either Samwise Gamgee from the Lord of the Rings series or as Mikey from The Goonies. Let the inner geek in me rejoice!

Met artist Sutu at last Melbourne Comic Con last year. His augmented reality comics are were really cool and I believe the future of comics. Well, according to this, it could be the future for tattoos too. Mark my words, this guy is going to be a rich man. Wish I could invest in it! 
Last year, Australian artist Sutu launched a Kickstarter campaign for Modern Polaxis, an innovative comic about a paranoid time traveler whose private journal is brought to life in augmented reality, with readers using an iPhone or an iPad and a free app to uncover his hidden secrets and conspiracy theories. However, Sutu didn’t stop with …

Shots from my trip in Philadelphia, including my trip into the city and playing the Poker Night in America $25/$50 no-limit hold'em cash game, which was filmed for TV and will air in the fall.

Next week Monday & Tuesday I will be playing in the Poker Night in America​ cash game at SugarHouse Casino in Philly. Phil Hellmuth, Darren Elias & Andy Frankenberger​ will also be in the game (among others). The stakes will be $25/$50 NLHE and it will be both live streamed and recorded for later broadcast on television. 

Very much looking forward to visiting Philadelphia for the first time, being a part of Poker Night in America, and playing against some of the biggest names in the game. It should be a fun (and hopefully rewarding) experience.

I'm still looking to sell some action at no mark up. $100 gets you 1% (you can do the math from there). Let me know if you're interested.
This weekend, SugarHouse Casino in Philadelphia will host several Poker Night in America cash games. Find out the lineups here.
