Just had a brandy at the Parlour at El Cortez waiting for a Linux Meetup to start. Watched the piano guy doing some lounge music. Real neat place.

The place used to be a dive, but the rooms were above par. Jackie really has spiffed up the place (casino floor) I saw the last time I was there.

Awesome. Hope he makes it to the final table. My family loves to watch that shit.

Bitcoin combines money, the wrongest thing in the world, with software, the easiest thing in the world to get wrong.

I don't know,  I am receiving all the photos and information 4th hand.
Hopefully some one can find a copy of the interview video online.

So does he know about Bitcoin himself, or was he just wearing the shirt as a favor?

asked/answered somewhere in this thread. He's just doing it as a favor, but at least one of the other 7 guys with him "knows it better". I can't recall what that means. But even if it's very little, the net sum of network effect outweighs the few around him that figured out he's just a shill for us.

He knows a little about Bitcoin.  I told him that if anyone asks about it,  he can just tell them that "you can use Bitcoin to play poker on the internet for real money."

2. Each logo may be no larger than six (6) square inches (e.g., 2”x3”, 3”x2”, 1”x6”, 6”x1”).
3. Players may wear logos on their left and/or right breast pocket and/or on their shirt sleeves. No other sponsorship logos will be allowed anywhere on a player, including on hats or caps."

Could there be a get out in the fact that it's not sponsorship and not a corporation?  Would there be an objection if the shirt said "I use dollars"?

Wow, that's pretty awesome.  Hopefully he can keep it up, and, well, not do what I do when I'm 2nd in a poker round.  :p

Unfortunately for us,  but it seems to have worked for him,  he decided to wear his "lucky shirt" rather than his Bitcoin shirt today:

Hopefully he will be lucky and wear the Bitcoin shirt tomorrow.

Tell him he can wear his luck shirt under the bitcoin shirt. I had a vietnamese monk bless my tshirts from negative mojo so his lucky shirt doesn't have to spend any defense points.
