The Stretch

It’s really not that big of a deal, I suppose. 150 games. No more than a blip. A flash in the pan, so to speak. And I didn’t even lose that much money. 150 games, -$443. I’ve lost more than that before. Much more, actually. I’ve had individual days where I’ve dropped just under a […]

The Rincon

Just got back from Harrah’s Rincon Casino, located in “San Diego.” I used quotations for a reason — It’s not really in San Diego. Oh, they say it is. They lie. It took my friend Brian and I about an hour and a half to get there. North San Diego? Please. Admittedly it would have […]

I found out today that my mom reads my blog. Not surprising, I suppose, considering she makes quite an effort to stay involved in my life and such. However, I don’t think I ever told her I had a blog, let alone the name of it — but she found it, somehow. She also happened […]

The Trifecta

I used to have an awesome set up. Although it looked a bit awkward, I had my desk in my living room — right next to a beautiful 50-inch flat screen television set. So while I was playing SNGs, I could watch a ballgame or catch up on episodes of my favorite shows. Sometimes I’d […]

The Bottom Line

Six whole days without an update? Unacceptable IMO. Until Thursday, I had stuck with the game plan. 100+ SNGs per day during the week. But last night, I decided to hang out with friends and enjoy late night happy hour instead of putting in the time. Several cheap drinks later, I returned home in a […]

The New Look

Instead of playing a session yesterday, I allocated some time to re-designing my blog. The changes are rather subtle, as I merely upgraded the template/color scheme and added a few extra gadgets to the page. For instance, there are two links on the right — one for my PokerVT Biography and the other to a […]

The Birthday Present

I am exhausted. It’s nearly 4 AM on Friday morning, and I’m one “publish post” button from heading off to bed. I was tired two hours ago, but knew that I had enough energy to put in a final session and did so. The results? Eh. Only cashed in 8/31 but somehow dropped a mere […]

The Video Game

It’s 2 AM and I’m thirsty for more SNGs. Unfortunately, there’s a server restart tonight so instead I’m sitting on my couch watching a friend play Grand Theft Auto IV. For the last half hour, he’s been murdering countless members of the Liberty City Police Department with an endless supply of rocket launchers. During the […]

The Meeting

So far, so good. Kind of. I put in 120 games yesterday and ran decently well. The 30 game sessions went as follows: 1: +$1142: +$19.503: – $61.504: +$168 $240 for the day, $2/game, $60/set, or roughly $75/hr. Not bad. I haven’t put in as many games today, currently sitting at 96. Why 96? Well, […]

The Fresh Start

A while back, my happiness was rather dependent on my poker related results. And now? Not so much. I’ve actually never ran this bad and felt this good. After the disconnect debacle, I gave myself the rest of the month off. I’ve spent the last few days doing things that make me happy — hanging […]
