Tony G Finds "The Best Cash Games In The World"
Tony G has laid claim to discovering what he calls the best cash games in the world and no they are not in Macau as most would have you believe. Instead Mr Guoga claims the best cash games are currently being played in Belarus; Minsk to be exact.
Everyone's favourite Australian-Lithuanian was invited to Minsk to play in a private high stakes Pot Limit Omaha cash game and by the sounds of it came away from it in very good shape indeed.
He's currently in Lithuania at the exclusive Tony Resort where he and his faithful hound Zasko are relaxing by "keeping away dangerous bears." Tony has his fingers in many pies and his latest venture is a band called the Tony Betties! Check out his latest blog to hear them in action.
