Niks Poker Palace - 1000th Post!

Wow! Started on July 12, 2006 with an article on the best internet poker sites to play on. Poker Stars was #1 and Bodog was #2.

Talk about Faldo advice being dead on! History proved that Faldo - way back when - steered players to the two sites with the most integrity.

PokerStars paid their US players when they had to shut down and BoDog has announced their closing date to US players at the end of this football season - so ample warning to cash out.

If everyone had just listened to Faldo (including Faldo) everyone would have all their poker funds cashed out.

Anyway, this labor of love was the brain child of Davethedog (4putt). And he still contributes here on the odd occasion (like the last video post). Other regular contributors include Douge2's Humor Column, and he gets anonymous assistance from Bigbrimar.

4Putt convinced me, after a day of golf (he was - back then - not fully neutered yet) and beer drinking - and then 5 pitchers of beer with cigars at Hooters in Novi, that I could and should write a poker blog.

Stupid beer always gets me in trouble. But in the immortal words of Beerhog, "You can't drink all day if you don't get started in the morning." 4putt and I gave it a try that day.

But a blog is not successful without readers! Readers are the most important thing. They are the yardstick that measures how good your blog is!

I want to take this opportunity to thank my faithful readers! So Thank You! - to both of you.

I want to thank you very much for all that you do for NPP. You truly are a great asset to the poker community! I especially like your insightful comments and articles on the game of poker. The story of the white whale is a wonderful read and I was able to learn a lot about you and your earlier years along the way. My only regret is that I am a latecomer to your musings. It was douge2 who introduced me to your NPP poker world late in 2008 and for that I am forever grateful. All my heartfelt blessings go out to you now and in the future!

Love the sight. NPP provides good reads about many topics. Don't always agree with all of your political views but God bless your right to express them freely. And I too check out the photos.
