Was that 08 or 09? Time flies.

Hope you can join us for drinks or grub while in Miami.

2008 and was also the first year I met up with you and your crew at the NPBA Hudson River Poker Run.

I will be everywhere in Miami as I will be driving down to allow myself more flexibility to do SHOP TOUR Photo Shoots and not be limited to what equipment I can carry on an airplane.

It will be a Road Trip for 10 Days stopping anywhere I can along the East Coast !

I am sure I can find some time to meet up with you at some point !

Just found out about this. This is Bonnier in a nutshell. Bonnier is a Swedish company and since beeing from Sweden I've seen a couple of these things happen before. Bonnier has no passion at all. It's all about the money for them. Hate them f***ers!

I'm a business man myself, so I understand the nature of the beast, but a company that was still collecting subscription fee's for a company that was hours away from going under, major pieces of garbage. Anyone that was a part of that company, in that particular department of the business, should go to prison. It's a white collar crime, just like a ponzi scheme. They knowingly took money from people with absolutely no intention of providing the product. But what the hell do I know, I'm still waiting for my next issue of Pokerruns America. Last I heard, their was a death in the family and they were re-grouping at PRA. Still waiting. I'm sorry for their loss of someone, but I'm not so sure it ever happened. If it did happen, I'm not so sure it should stop all operations. Just my opinion, hopefully I didn't offend anyone with a conscience, to all the people without a conscience that screw all of us working people over, karma is a beautiful thing. Godspeed

I had a feeling it was time to bail. Maybe the magazine will be brought back properly, as in MONTHLY.
