We all suffer bad beats. They can make us curse out our adversaries in the chat box or complain incessantly to our friends and significant others. But have you ever sat down and crafted an interesting story about a bad beat? If this sounds like an interesting concept to you, as it did with me, it could even win you some cool prizes.
Poker Buddy is an add-on, used mostly used mostly for Zynga poker, that uses algorithms to help evaluate your game and improve poker play. They have just launched a contest for players who can write the best bad beat story.
You can go right to the popular Poker Buddy Facebook page and post your story. Feel free to browse around and "like" your favorite. The Poker Buddy staff will eventually select the most creative and intriguing story and the writer will win a fancy poker case filled with 500 chips. Runners up receive a T-shirt or baseball cap.
