I am delighted to recognize poker pro Michael Rocco volunteering for an organization that is preparing Thanksgiving meals to hand out to the needy.
I asked if I could deliver food halfway down South LA, so I asked my husband if he knew anyone who could help by asking this short, and Mike Rocco agreed.
Helping others during the holidays makes beats seem meaningless.
What we consider a single purchase can help a family eat. It was an experience we will never forget. In the process, I got to know someone who isn’t your typical poker player going to dewapoker.
Mike Rocco was born in Cleveland, Ohio, and has been a stud since he was a kid together. Mike said, “They love me in games! I live. I was in every pot trying to bluff. I learned it didn’t work. ”
Since he was still in junior high school, he would tell anyone who wanted to ask him to move to Las Vegas one day. His dream finally came true after Mike spent his honeymoon in Las Vegas and moved there in 1982.
He has a cousin who owns the Bells Chapel on Las Vegas Boulevard and Sahara Avenue and works as a limousine driver.
Mike then went to dealer school and became a blackjack dealer; from 1984 to 1987 he spent blackjack at the Dunes and would play the $ 15 / $ 30 Seven Card Stud at Caesars Palace in his spare time.
Mike stepped up his game by playing with some really good players in Las Vegas in the 80s. As he said, “Play with good players, and do what they do. Watch and learn. Mike took his own advice, and in 2008 he won a WSOP gold bracelet in the $ 1,500 Seven Card Stud for $ 135,753.
Mike is one of the most successful winners at stud and has been successful at the game he loves. Nobody knows more stud player than Mike, who must be an excellent host for the new stud Hollywood Park Casino where you can find a daily $ 6 / $ 12 or $ 15 / $ 30 stud on excursions.
Mike is one of the most humble people you will ever meet at the poker table. But he holds praise for other professional poker players, “Robin Kay is one of the best players I have ever seen. He is one of the toughest poker hosts I have ever known. ”
Like Mike said, if you want to hone your game, play your best. Hollywood Park Casino is one of the best places to play if you want to have fun while upping your game.
