Countdown to NamesCon Part 3: Let’s play a game – Name that Domain Gambler


NamesCon is now just a day away and Domain Investors from around the world are already descending on Las Vegas. My flight leaves tomorrow afternoon so I’ll be getting in with the rest of the Saturday night crew. This of course likely means that some gambling will take place before the conference starts and I thought I would setup a little game, with a prize for the winner…because let’s face it, it’s not fun without a prize.

Here’s how it works.

There are some domain name investors who gamble, some like Craps, others Poker, and there’s plenty who stay away from the tables and find their adventures in other parts of Vegas. So I thought now would be as good a time as any to see if you knew which of your favorite Domainers were gamblers…and what their favorite game is.

Be warned, not all of the people I have listed below gamble. If you can nail which of your favorite Domainers gambles, and their favorite game (in the comment section below) you’ll get a special gift from me in Vegas (think chips to gamble with yourself). Here we go…

    Russian Roulette is Andrew Allemann’s game of choice. Many lives have been lost to satisfy this man’s thrill seeking.
