Help - a surprise for Simon Lovell

Hey Guys - As some of you may know, Simon Lovell recently suffered a very serious fall and as a result, he has gone through extensive surgery. Although he is now doing much better, he still has quite a long way to go in his recovery. And, he is still facing a rather long stay at his current care fac...

Re: Ken Krenzel Passes

Am really sorry to hear this. Still don't have a time, but for those in NYC that want a ride to the funeral, I have three more spaces in my car available. Send me an email at John@JohnBorn.com if you would like to join.

Re: www.CheatingAtTexasHoldem.com

I understand. It is pretty safe to say anyone on this thread enjoys and is fascinated by any information or "secrets" regarding this topic. In this book, I share some of mine, and am always first in line when others do the same.

Re: www.CheatingAtTexasHoldem.com

What is your point? I am going through my library and have yet to find a poker or protection resource that even mentions Norman Beck. If they did, I would have been more keen on contacting him. Even if every poker resource was first to thank him, I obviously did not need his input to create the publ...

Gentlemen I have not disrespected Mr. Beck in any way. I simply recognized that his demand for a money-back guarantee was unreasonable and uncharacteristic in our trade.

All I would suggest, Norman, is that you give a little more thought and consideration in the future before noting how you called and someone folds, especially when based on special conditions you feel important enough to create and push in a public forum.

Hi Norman - Not at all. I was simply making an example, as I am sure that every author in our community that puts out a book on magic does not need this type of third degree.

You got it Richard. The performer opens and closes it.
