The Break

I haven’t played in the past two days. That might be normal for some of you, but not me — I’m used to fitting in 100 games a night. There isn’t really have much of an excuse, except that I’ve been busy. A friend came into town, we went out last night. And law school […]

The Reverberation

I don’t know what it is, but I’ve been running terribad in $16s. This last session was definitely the worst results I’ve ever had. 31 games, -$309.50. Impressively bad. Seven cashes: zero firsts, one second, six thirds. The worst part is when sessions like that last one stick with me for a while. I remember […]

The MTT Day

Last night, I couldn’t sleep — dreams of winning the Sunday Million and other large tournaments kept entering my head. I don’t even know what I’d do with $120k. I suppose I might buy something extravagant. Only problem is that I have no idea what I’d want. Oh wait. I got it. The Vita-Mix. Seriously. […]

The Cure

I woke up today and it didn’t hurt to swallow. Thank you, penicillin. Unfortunately, as my health problems are mostly gone, so is my current “run good.” I believe I had profited each day since I returned home — that was of course, before today. 83 Games, -$248 Super standard, and I’m not too broken […]

The Cold

Since I returned home, I’ve been a bit under the weather. My head aches, my body feels sore, my nose is stuffed up, and worst of all, I wince every time I swallow — yeah, it hurts that much. I’ve also found myself prone to bouts of unexplained exhaustion. I’ll sleep for twelve hours, wake […]

The Vegas Week II

I neglected to include a rather important part of my trip. After touching down in Las Vegas on Tuesday, I was picked up by Gary Harvey, PokerVT Product Manager. While I was holding out hope that PokerVT would send a limo and a driver, riding around in Gary’s blue mustang convertible was a fine consolation […]

The Vegas Week

While my friend and I waited in the terminal to board our respective planes, we agreed on one thing: No more week-long Vegas excursions. Seven days of debauchery, smoke filled casinos, 5 hour “naps,” 100+ degree heat, enormous meals, and bottomless drinks was simply too much. I mean, 3-4 days should be more than enough […]

The Final Tally

Well, the weekend is officially over. Although if you think about it, my entire life is pretty much a weekend. Sharkscope has become increasingly unreliable in recent weeks, and not surprisingly, the site missed a few of my games. Mostly $27s — and it’s a shame because I ran super hot in those. But the […]

The Weekend Update

See what I did there? Ah yes, I think I’m so creative and funny at 5 AM. In actuality, I think I’m a riot most of the time, but it’s compounded when I’m on no sleep. I’m just about to head to bed, but I thought I’d provide an update on how the weekend has […]

The Weekend

With my my roommate out of town for the entire weekend, I figured it’d be a great opportunity for me to grind like crazy. I’ve *only* put in 500 or so games so far this month, and since I’ll be missing out on games between the 11th and 16th (Vegas), I know that I’ll need […]
