A late morning email

I received another email this morning:

“Rick, I just finished looking over your poker comments section of your blog and first of all want to say they are very entertaining.

I read with interest your advice to young players thinking about moving to vegas
to play full time and really admire you for the advice and comments you give. I hope it
helps some younger people in keeping things in perspective regarding playing poker
for a living.

Also I noted in that post you were the lead trial attorney in several murder trials and a federal conspiracy case. It would be interesting to learn about the cases and your decision making process as the trials developed. By the way what were the verdicts!

thanks again Rick for you insights and picks.”

My response:

I always enjoy getting emails like this. After all the negativity you encounter on a day to day basis real time in the poker world positive comments are always welcomed.

I have thought about writing some comments about some of the more interesting cases I have tried but have never gotten around to it. Perhaps this will motivate me to write about them from time to time. I have been fortunate to be able to try a wide variety of cases in many different fields. The most were medical negligence, personal injury and products liability cases.

Then of course are the 3 you noted above. Its rare for many reasons that you get an opportunity to try murder cases and federal conspiracy cases when you primarily try civil injury cases. But I was fortunate here also in getting these since they are challenging with the stakes being very high. And since you ask….all three of these the verdict came in “not Guilty”.

If there is enough interest I will post a section similar to the poker comments section for interesting cases from time to time.

Again thinks for your email
