I'm going to be interviewing Barry Shulman, long time professional poker player and the owner of CardPlayer Magazine.
And I'm so excited I'm trembling and it's difficult to type!
I was contacted a couple weeks ago by a PR company wanting me to post their a press release about Daniel Negreanu becoming Poker Player of the Year on PokerTip.org. I agreed to put them on ChipNews.org since PokerTip is an original content only site. We talked back and forth and she told me that her company represented Barry Shulman. She also contacted Jimmy with a few more press releases and a conversation ensued.
And she asked us if we wanted to interview him. I figured it'd be via phone or written replies. But NO! He's at the World Poker Open right now and that's where I'm headed!
So, the PR lady is arranging for me to interview him in person while I'm up there.
It means I'm putting off leaving until this afternoon so I can get some research done before I leave so that I actually have some engaging questions to ask him. I also need to buy a tape recorder. I hope gigafive calls me back soon because I have so much advice I need to ask of her.
mandis13 hit my thoughts right on the money when he said, "It gives you just that tiniest shred of legitimacy." Only my poor little mind is blowing it up into something huge. I feel like our sites have hit the big time.
Now to break out my suit and go buy pantyhose!
