Football and Poker ParlaysMarch 23, 2018
Sometimes betting poker is just like betting football, because you need to win that first hand or game to move forward. Of course the old joke that fits here is about the compulsive gambler who is really buried in bad bets and he says to his best friend and bookmaker “Please, please give me a game to bet, give me a sure winner,” and his buddy gives in and tips him to a sure thing where nobody knows the starting quarterback isn’t going to play. So does the guy thank his buddy for the tip? No, he says, alright, now give me a game to parlay it to.”
I love to bet football parlay cards, and I love to play poker, so this Saturday and Sunday in Phoenix were terrific. First, Saturday night was Andrew Bloom’s 7th Annual Charity Poker Event Benefiting DYHA and AAA Bobcats (That’s Hockey, Baby!) where I mingled with the stars, was treated to an amazing night of food and drinks by Andrew and his lovely wife Babs, and of course a poker tournament presented by Jeff Geller and Dream Dealers. I didn’t win the tournament, but I got to enjoy watching the Arizona Cardinals take on the San Francisco 49’ers on Sunday. The Cards lost, but my parlay was still great!
Cardinals DE Calais Campbell had 3 solo tackles plus a hand in on another and a quarterback sack, but the San Francisco 49ers pulled out a 32-20 win over the Arizona Cardinals. This coming Saturday night, also in the Phoenix area (Paradise Valley), is the Calais Campbell #93 Celebrity Poker Invitational with proceeds benefiting the Care Fund and CRC Foundation. Of course Calais will be there mixing it up with the guests and the poker players, and Jeff Geller’s Dream Dealers will handle another amazing charity night of poker, blackjack, craps and roulette. 1st Prize: Two Super Bowl tickets! 2nd & 3rd Prize: WSOP $1500 Event Entry or cash option.
