All in!

My nephew, the oldest member of his generation of descendants of my parents, has survived the first round of the main event at the World Series of Poker -- no limit Texas hold 'em -- currently under way in Las Vegas. He is one of the very, very youngest players in a field of more than 5,600, and he's such a smart and shrewd fellow that I believe he's got a long way to go. They'll be down to 1,700 by the end of the day, with him included. So what if he's got only $9,250 left? The sky's the limit!

Go get 'em, Gary!

Would this be Cousin Gary's son?

(Seems logical.)

Er, I guess that would be Jim's Cousin Gary, but you mean what I know. :)

Yep, one and the same. All chips off the same block. Speaking of which, how's your new one?

Good continuum. (is that a word?)
Fits well with the city playing fast and loose craps with the taxpayers money.

good luck to NephewBog

Hey, with $9250, he's just barely below the legendary David Sklansky! And hell, he's got 1/6 as much as Dutch Boyd. I'd take 1/6 as much as Dutch Boyd anyday. Go Bog-boy!

She's doing great, thanks for asking.

Next hurdle: sleeping through the night!

That is seriously cool. WTG, Gary!
