Put The Party In Poker

I sat down at a Hold’em table on Party Poker for the first time today. First thing I noticed was that their lowest limit table is $.50/$1 with .25/.50 blinds.

The hobbies page will likely be removed soon and the about page needs a major overhaul. Don’t mind the dust over the next week or so. Just a little Fall cleaning. Change is good.

WordPress Plugin: Card Converter

Card Converter is a WordPress plugin with poker bloggers in mind, but it can be used by anyone who would like to display playing cards in posts and comments. It will take card abbreviations such as Ad (meaning Ace of diamonds) and convert it to a CSS graphical-like representation of the card. Inspiration for the plugin came from Chris Halverson‘s Pokerhand plugin and the CSS cards on the World Poker Tour Fan Site.

The plugin has moved to the WordPress Plugin Repository. All development and files will be available there from now on.

Party Poker

I signed up for an account on Party Poker today and will be playing there more often. From what I’ve heard they have a lot more players and tables than any other site. If you sign up, give me a referral and we’ll both get a bonus reward when you make your first deposit. Look me up at the tables too, using the name mtdewvirus of course.
