Grammy, Shmamby, Steve Albini just won a World Series of Poker Bracelet

For those of you who don't know, Steve Albini is quite a poker player. He hosts a game at Electrical, and plays in casinos often. He makes his way out to the World Series of Poker every year, and has spent some time comemtating in the streaming booth in the past. Tonight he was at the final table of event #31 $1500 7-Card Stud event. He closed it out and won a very nice sum.

WSOP NEWS: STEVE ALBINI WINS EVENT 31 1500 SEVEN CARD STUD

Most people who know poker probably think of No Limit Texas Hold 'Em, but Steve, being Steve, prefers the classic old school game of 7-Card Stud, the 16-track 2" of poker.

Proving - as if it needed to be proved - that reading people is the #1 skill required to be in a studio.

You could have stopped at "skill."

Steve Albini lost a lot playing poker. In an interview, he admitted that poker ruined his life. Besides becoming a champion, it cost him a lot. He lost his family. Albini is also known for his outspoken and controversial views on poker online and on the music industry, has repeatedly stated that it financially exploits artists and homogenizes their sound. Nearly alone among well-known producers and musicians, Albini refuses to take ongoing royalties from album sales, feeling that a producer's job is to record the music to the band's desires and that paying a producer as if they had contributed artistically to an album is unethical.

The World Championship of Poker has become an annual event held in Las Vegas at the Rio Casino. It lasts for a month or more. There were 60 tournaments in different poker games during that time, and it raked in more than $225 million in total prize money. The enviable trophy from the tournament is a gold bracelet, the traditional award for the winner. Both the boxing belt and the World Series bracelet distinguish poker's most successful players. The final event of the series of games is the Main Event. For the contribution of $ 10,000 and victory, the poker player receives the title "world champion." I wanted to play in this tournament, but I had to make some money first. The house of pokiez casino review helped me with that. I participated in small tournaments and was able to accumulate money.

The first World Series of Poker was held in 1970. Starting this year, it will not be held at the Rio, but at Bally's on the Las Vegas Strip.
