Hi All,

Another month gone by and it's been a productive one here at Cardplayer Lifestyle headquarters. Dozens of new articles published once again, by a litany of contributing writers, with topics ranging from interviews to strategy pieces to listicles to WSOP predictions and much more.

Plus, I've kept busy on the podcast hosting front, too, with the release of another new episode of The Orbit. Also, in case you didn't know, I host the CardsChat Podcast and we've got over 40 episodes for you to enjoy, with a new one coming out each week.

Yet, with all that said, I feel as though the BIG stuff is still very much laying in wait beneath the surface. Our newly redesigned website has unfortunately once again run into some unforeseen hurdles, but hopefully by next month's newsletter it'll have finally debuted in all it's glory.

I've also got a HUGE announcement waiting in the wings that I've been keeping under wraps for about 1.5 years now (no, that's not a typo). Still can't say anything just yet, but believe me that once I do finally announce it next month it'll have been worth the wait. One "hint"... if you're thinking about coming out to the World Series of Poker this fall, see what you can do about specifically being in Las Vegas during the first week... Other than that, stay tuned! 🔥

Lastly, in fun news that I CAN announce, I am very happy to let you all know that we're bringing on our first ever Social Media Coordinator, Chad McVean. Chad will be helping us with the launch of our all-new Twitter account
@PokerLifeMedia that'll be exclusively branded for Cardplayer Lifestyle content. You're of course still welcome to follow me @cardplayerlife, too, but go on and give our new account a follow too, eh? 😃

You might notice our newly redesigned Facebook page as well (be sure to give us a Like if you haven't already). I'm proud to share that my 13-year-old daughter, Abby, did a wonderful job with the graphics on both our Facebook page and new Twitter account. She's also responsible, behind the scenes, for having created a few feature images we've used in recent articles. Talented kid, eh?

Until next month, my friends, play well and be happy!
