The TOKE: College Edition

753:: Shill Card Player, earn beer money.  Card Player is doing its best to spread the joy of poker to the demo with just about the least possible disposable income, college kids. First, its Web site each month now features some campus chick o’ the month. You’d think after partnering with Bodog, they’d pick up on how to properly show off their girl talent. Not that the girl at right (this month’s "babe") is ugly by any stretch, but she’s no Bodog babe, and let’s just say the pictorial of her ain’t revealing much. ANYWAY, back on point, if you’re one of our college readers and the following description fits you: "If you have a great personality, love the game of poker, and enjoy speaking in front of groups and organizations…", then you could be the next campus representative for Card Player!

:: Are poker clubs the new fraternities?  At Oakland University, the All-In Poker Club is drawing crowds.  Their top players will rep Oak U (as we like to call it) at the College Poker Bowl in Ohio.  This is not to be confused with the Emerald Nuts BowlOak Post Online

:: …and our Harrah’s-esque awkward and uncomfortable gambling PSA.  Washington University in the Loo (apparently America’s new poker hotbed) is conducting a study to assess the risks of gambling.  They’ve "developed a diagnostic tool for identifying pathological gambling disorder…" Their first subject: Alex Schwartz (ba-da-dum).  Seriously though folks, if you’re lonely, drunk, or painfully stupid, now is not a good time to be gamblingWashington University Med News
