I posted a new picture as my default. About time, I suppose. I’ve had that one up there for a long, long time. And the best part is that I’m not even the focal point of that picture. I think I had this one in the very beginning. Look at those fancy chips! Oh, the […]

Went to bed last “night” at 7 AM, so I rolled out of bed this afternoon just after 1 PM. Matt and I had planned to keep the same schedule, but no dice — PokerStars is having another server restart, and games won’t be available for another few hours. Considering how we’ve been running, it’s […]

The same, as in “more of.” A new month, a new year, and same old downswing. Worst part is that I’m way down in $16s and actually (somewhat) up at a small sample of $27s. I’m down $1300 in my last 400 games and $3k in my last 2600. It’s official, I’m about to snap. […]
