You all know that our two favorite pastimes are poker and football, specifically college football, more specifically SEC football. Occasionally the two activities conflict, as was the case last Thursday night when the Texas A&M Aggies battled with the South Carolina Gamecocks. We had a tournament scheduled for that night, but the beat down we were putting on the Gamecocks was so exhilarating that we could barely pay attention to our poker game. Texas A&M Aggies over South Carolina Gamecocks

I simply had to excuse myself from the poker table before I lost the deed to our house. I needed to focus on what Kenny Hill and the offensive weapons he had at his disposal were doing to the 10 ½ point favorites in their own house.

Hopefully our next poker tournament won’t conflict with our beloved Aggies and perhaps I can recoup my losses from last Thursday.

Texas A&M WOW! is all we can say about the Texas A&M win over South Carolina, beating the Gamecocks 52- 28. Outstanding, beyond belief  performance by the Aggies on defense, offense and special teams.  Kenny Hill was phenomenal and hit at least ten different receivers to obliterate the Gamecocks in their own house, something that has not been done for the last 18 of their home games.

Much the same as South Carolina not even coming close to touching the Texas A&M Fighting Aggies. T-licious wins the professional set of Copag Peek-Index Poker Cards.  Congratulations Mr. T-Licious! Your poker cards are on their way.

This is gonna be one helluva football season!!

The excitement /anxiety at the Texas Poker Store (and in our house) is mounting as we get closer and closer to the start of the Texas A&M football season. The Aggies kick it off tomorrow night at 5 p.m. (CST), on the SEC Network, against #9 South Carolina in Columbia. And, according to Las Vegas, the Gamecocks are 10 ½ point favorites!

Set of Copag Poker cardsIf we were betting with cash, we’d take the points and go with the Aggies. Instead, we’re going to launch our annual “Predict the Score” contest that we hold for all conference games. Whoever comes the closest to predicting the final score will win a professional set of Copag Peek-Index Poker Cards including a durable, solid carrying case. If there’s a tie, whoever made the correct prediction first is the winner, so you don’t have much time to fool around.

In our opinion, most of the pundits seem to be too focused on who we lost (mainly Manziel, Mike Evans and Jake Matthews) as well as the memory of how awful our defense was last year. We prefer to think positively. Not only do we think our offense is loaded with major weapons at WR, such as Ricky Seals-Jones, Speedy Noils, Cam Clear, Malcom Kennedy and more, but we have running backs with talent and experience and an O-Line that should match up well against any opponent. Unfortunately, this is a very tough match-up for the first game of the season, especially playing in a hostile environment. Same thing for the defense. We are confident that improvements have been made at every position, but will it all come together in the first game?

What do you think? Will the Aggies surprise everyone and catapult themselves into a top ten team after their first road game? Or will the pundits be right, with the Ags taking a two-score beating as predicted? Predict the score now for your chance to be the first Texas Poker Store winner of the 2014-15 football season!

We had a whirlwind vacation in sunny Southern California for the last week and now we are ready to hit the tables with refreshed vigor.  Although we didn’t have a chance to play while in Cali, that doesn’t mean we were completely out of touch. We still took care of all our Texas Poker Store customers and even were able to sneak in a few poker conversations with some of our friends while sucking in the fresh pacific coast air, laying on the beach, and absorbing the sun’s rays.

Hopefully y’all followed the humble advice we left you with, and played well, were patient and waited for it before pushing your poker chips all in. Now that we’re back we will be bringing you more poker info, news, and tidbits, as well as focusing some attention, as we do every year around this time, on Texas A&M Football. First game up for the Aggies is this Thursday night against the South Carolina Gamecocks, so stay tuned!
