Which Poker Magazine Is Your Favorite?
I subscribe to (almost) all the poker magazines: CardPlayer, All-In, PokerPro, PokerLife, and Bluff (I never figured out if you could subscribe to 'Deal' or not, or if they are even still around).
The most recent issue of Bluff reminded me again how good their magazine is, I think probably the best of the bunch. In particular in the most recent issue, I thought there were at least six excellent strategy articles-- I actually underlined some things in the 'playing the big stack' article (Busbee), 'recalculating the avg. stack' article (Gordon), and the 'handling loses' (Largay) article! In fact, I found Angel Largay's article so good, that his book just jumped to the front of my reading list.
As for regular columnists, I enjoy the Tilly/Laak/Esfandiari trio, especially when the all write about the same event/trip from their unique perspective; of course their articles are pure fluff, but there are plenty of serious strategy discussions elsewhere in the magazine. For example: Narvarro and Caro are always good for actual useful poker content.
Also, Adam Slutsky is probably one of the funniest writers I have ever read.
Of course there is sometimes some junk (I really didn't find the 'poker goddess' article amusing in the least), but overall, if I had to keep only one of the subscriptions I think if would be Bluff.
