We were told that Mahalo founder and poker player/problem gambler Jason Calacanis (SA 100 #76) would have his PDA confiscated in advance of last night’s private poker game at the D conference — apparently there was dismay that Jason had Twittered about his exploits on Tuesday night. Conclusion: odds of getting Jason away from Twitter are very, very low.
Wednesday night/Thursday morning’s updates:
Approx 11pm: Poker game starting up… Will keep u posted
Approx 11pm: Won first two hands….
Approx 2am: rumour/prediction at D poker table: netflix to get bought by apple or msft. Thinking is 2m customers to boost online/offline movie service. (Note to Jason: Multiply by four — Netflix has 8 million subs –Ed)
Approx 2am: Was down to 200, just more than doubled up…
