High Stakes Poker Season 7: Early Season Update

Game Show Network’s “High Stakes Poker” telecasts have managed over the course of 6+ seasons to build a large and loyal following based on a surprisingly simple concept: you can televise poker even when it’s not tournament play! For many recreational players who participate mainly in cash games (including this author), HSP has been a welcomed addition to the line-up of poker shows currently available. Over the years the show has changed venues, and changed players, but the core idea remains intact. Post your cash, and the game keeps running until the cameras stop filming. No one gets “eliminated”, the blinds never increase, and as such it remains primarily a skill-based, people-reading game — poker in its purest form.
While HSP has seen a wide variety of players, settings, and styles, a few things have remained the same. Daniel Negreanu will always run horri-bad in this format, and it’s no knock on him. He has just been surprisingly unlucky in expensive spots over the years. Sam Farha will apparently no longer play on television, believing that it’s bad for his game (and he might be right, we’ll just have to take his word for it). crypto gambling will, for the most part, provide some comic relief or interesting plays, but generally lose (except for Guy Laliberte).

Think about that! You lend someone, your hard earned dollars and then, month after month, instead of making a return on your money, you have to pay out more money? Insanity.

This alone reflects the failing of the Western Central banking system; and has never previously been witnessed in 5000 years of recorded commerce; and not enough people are talking about it – period.

Like a tsunami of capital, this $13.7Trn in negative yielding debt will – and very soon – seek out a return; and, as we speak, has already begun this process of, ebbing out of the countries whose government bonds presently provide this negative yield (Japan, Germany, France, Europe).

If one wants to really understand from more than just a surface opinion on why the recent rally of crypto, one need only understand this very under-reported tidbit of data/knowledge. A tsunami of capital, like a fire-hose, will find its way to other investments – it’s that simple. And while historically, precious metals juniors, cannabis stocks, crypto, etc. has been seen as a more “risky” investment, nothing is more risky than a guaranteed …
