Welcome to the board, Johnny Grooms. I can't wait for some "new" input on the Discussion Forum...especially from a former dealer. ;)

 I'd like to also welcome Ante Up Magazine as one of the sponsors for the upcoming Summit. If you haven't yet, go to anteupmagazine.com and listen to the longest running, and the best, poker broadcast anywhere. You can also download the latest copy of their great monthly Magazine. If you attend this years Summit, be sure to introduce yourself to Scott Long, he's one of the publishers of Ante Up Magazine. Scott told me how much he enjoyed being at the TDA Summit in 2013. I'm not sure if his publishing partner, and owner, Chris Cosenza will be in attendance.

 Great Magazine, great podcast and two of the best poker ambassadors ever! While your at it, be sure to check out their fabulous Poker Cruises.

Is there a reason why our board rarely if ever comments on anything in the forum?  I love the wealth of experience we have from the board but I don't see us benefiting from it in any tangible manner.
