Wil Wheaton at WSOP

I stumbled across Wil Wheaton’s blog after his last slashdot interview, and it’s great. I’ve been a fan of him as both a person and a technologist after watching him on the late, lamented The ScreenSavers on TechTV.

Wil’s description of his first experience, with less than auspicious results, at the World Series of Poker is intimate, entertaining and endearing. He’s a hell of a writer and I need to get my hands on his books. The trouble is, he writes so well about his preparation and experience, he might be giving away too much of the mystique of the game that has enthralled viewers since the Travel Channel started showing the World Poker Tour, which kicked off a bunch of imitators. Rounders got my attention, but World Poker Tour sealed my interest. Attaboy Wil, I can see you got caught up at the same time, but you acted where I did not. You’ve got my support. Knock ’em dead! Better luck next time!
