Hey Brian,

Great post, and a bit of a coincidence. Check this out, its written by Paul Wasicka, 2006 runner up in the WSOP Main Event, and current defending NBC Heads-Up Poker Champion.

That's a great blog post. I was just thinking that Poker has gone through a resurgence the way chess did back in the 1970s. I wonder who today's Bobby Fischer of poker is? Was that Chip Reese?

Obviously the parallels don't really work, because there's no Cold War and poker wasn't brought back by one guy. But the lesson about greatness in both will be the same. Talent and hard work, with the most important talent being the "need" to work harder than anyone else in the world.
