Wow. Just when you thought Harrah’s couldn’t be any dumber.
Richard Brodie is something of an internet friend of mine (although we’ve never actually met). I first encountered him on flyertalk, where he was a regular contributor and we got into a number of good natured discussions there. He has generously given me some good advice on Vegas hotels and is generally a cool guy. From flyertalk, I discovered his blog, where he details his adventures in the poker world. He made a tidy sum as an early Microsoft guy developing Word and now does the poker circuit and whatever else strikes his fancy. He has had a run of good luck lately, hitting a few high dollar video poker jackpots and as a result has been banned from Harrah’s hotels. This is quite literally mind-boggling. As a result of this foolishness, he is not permitted to play in the World Series of Poker. I’m completely disgusted.
