Many years ago my friends and I watched a lot of WCW wrestling. Disco Inferno was my all-time favorite, so to get the chance to interview him today was a literal fanboy dream come true. It's silly I know, but man oh man was I excited poker led to this!
Disco Inferno, whose real name is Glenn Gilbertti, was a wrestling superstar back in the 1990s. On Sunday, he was spotted at the 2015 World Series of Poker.

Only did 1,000 issues of the special Daniel Negreanu World Series of Zombies variant cover (done by Survivor's Erik Reichenbach). Less than 200 issues left. You can get a copy for $5.00 at the Blue Sharks Optics booth. More information on said cover can be found here -> http://www.pokernews.com/news/2015/06/erik-reichenbach-wsoz-21242.htm?style=2

Thanks to Spinettis Home Gaming Supplies​ for featuring my World Series of Zombies comic in their blog! Not only can you get it at the WSOP for $5.00, you can also pick it up at Spinetti's for the same price. They have a lot of cool gaming stuff there. I picked up an old school David Dave 'Devilfish' Ulliott​ bobblehead when in there last week.
Zombies are all the rage these days from The Walking Dead series of graphic novels and TV show of the same name on AMC to the George Romero's classic Night of the Living Dead. In Chad Holloway's new Graphic Novel World Series of Zombies the Zombie Apocalypse has invaded the World Series of Poker ...

Earlier today I had the opportunity to be a guest on the Usual Poker Podcast. Talked about my World Series of Zombies comic, the 2015 WSOP, and much more. Give it a listen if you like poker, or just like the sound of my voice. http://www.usualpoker.com/

I'm all for supporting independent comic projects -- obviously given WSOZ -- and there's a good one on IndieGoGo right now. They're only looking to raise $645. If you've got a couple bucks to spare for someone's passion project, I recommend it.

It's no secret I was a fan of Dave 'Devilfish' Ulliott​. Seeing him on TV back in the day is one of the reasons I got into poker. Obviously I was among the thousands sad to hear of his passing back in April. He will be missed, and hopefully he will be honored by being inducted into the Poker Hall of Fame, something his family and fellow pros are pushing for.

Yesterday I had a notification on Twitter that Dave Ulliot was now following me on Twitter...

It had his picture and claimed to be the official site of Dave "Devilfish" Ulliot...

Hellmuth is right, Devilfish has to take his place in poker history.

As for the jokers using his name, you are twits.

For those who may have missed it, Part 2 of my Vegas date thingie. Little game of smoke/fire, zombie killing, and I show just why I'm the self-proclaimed 2012 Wisconsin State Amateur Beer Pong Champion!  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kU9hdeSbK34#t=25

I went and saw Jurassic World last night, I enjoyed it a great deal, EXCEPT at the beginning when the family takes the kids to the Dane Country Regional Airport. I fly out of there all the time, and it was grossly misrepresented. It is nowhere near as big as the film suggest. I've flown out of there dozens of times and it's never been that busy. I just couldn't get over it. However, film redeemed itself a bit when a caller ID showed (608) area code, which was factually correct. Gotta give it up to them there. But seriously, was a good popcorn flick.

I saw it last night too and agreed/noticed the same! They need to work on their Sconnie accents too.

Getting your chips all in with aces versus kings deep in a tournament is a great feeling... until a king hits. How do you recover from such a beat? It's not easy. The situation happened to Antonio Esfandiari against Barny Boatman here at the 2015 WSOP. I talked to them both about the hand in this week's Hold'em With Holloway. 
In latest Hold'em with Holloway, PokerNews' Chad Holloway talks to Antonio Esfandiari about how to recover from bad beats in tournament poker.

It's really only a matter of time before someone stumbles upon it, so I might as well share. When I first came to Vegas this summer I took part in a little fun promotional date thing between PokerNews & Miss Travel. Got to spend a couple days with a girl exploring Vegas. Was a good time. As I understand it there will be two more videos released in the near future.

Had the chance to speak with Doyle Brunson for a few minutes before he made his 2015 World Series of Poker (WSOP)​ debut. He advocates for a Bob Hooks Poker Hall of Fame nomination, talks about Vegas cash games, and explains why he may skip the $50K Poker Players' Championship.

The Amazing Las Vegas Comic Con​ is in town, and given it's also WSOP time, I thought it'd be a good opportunity to profile Xuan Liu​, who is not only one heck of a poker player, but also a comic book geek at heart. 
The Amazing Comic Con Las Vegas is in town at the same time as the 2015 WSOP. This would usually be good news for poker pro and comic book geek Xuan Liu.
