Cool Poker Site of the Day
One of the things I enjoy about Steve's site is that he doesn't spend a whole lot of time telling you how to play, he spends his time telling you how to think for yourself and how to learn how to play. His contention seems to be, and he's expressed it multiple times, that the correct play is so situational that most beginners' guidelines are about as useful as training wheels once you've already learned how to ride a bike. Hell, anyone who encourages original thinking in this day and age deserves kudos.
Steve Badger is also a pretty literary guy, and he usually includes some clever quotes and stuff to keep things interesting over at his site. I particularly liked the quote from the Chronicles of Amber that he used in one article called "Come Find Out", which I think was also the title of the article. Great stuff, and I'll let you go find it for yourself and read it to see how great it is. He's also a fan of classic movies, and if you do a bit of looking, you can find links to some of his classic movie sites there too.
