A couple of weeks ago we received an email from a reader that just said, “Post Idea.”
The message was fairly straight forward:
“..do a countdown of the best poker pics in the history of history. Top 20, release one every day.” – Leonardo DiCaprio*
We were all over it. Daily content with just a picture and a few words? Sign us up!
The 20 Greatest Poker Pictures of All-Time project was underway.
But after we started asking some of our industry and player friends for feedback, things got deeper. Rod Stewart once sang “every pictures tells a story don’t it.” And it couldn’t be more true. This seemingly easy content-filler project became more involved.
There are plenty of amazing poker pics, but it’s the characters and stories surrounding the actual shot that ultimately grabbed our attention and made this a lot of fun.
It’ll all get started Tuesday the 18th. Before we post #20, here’s a gallery a few that just missed the cut.
