The Following Ninety

Only three sets so far today, but the results are solid. What a difference a day makes! Green line is up. Red line is up. And even better, I’m officially in the black for June. Only thing I did differently is I stopped playing on my laptop and moved to the dekstop, away from the […]

Want a graph like mine? All you have to do is sign up for coaching! On the plus side, I played 100 games today. I’m getting awfully frustrated with the graph though, especially that pesky red line. And per usual, I’m wondering if I’m doing something wrong. A former client of mine told me he […]

Looks like I won’t have to grind after all. At least not this month. One of the best low stakes SNG players in the world (and a past client, so to speak) reminded me today that I’m allowed to miss one month of “Supernova” and still maintain the status. Awesome. Get that tag down, Panda! […]

Well, I’ve started playing again. So, uhh, that’s good. And blogging, too. Also good. I suppose it’s only a matter of time before the results don’t suck. I’m a week away from losing that whole “never had a losing month” proclamation from my bio. Granted, I’ve only played 195 games this month. And I’m only […]

The Forum Trip II

I looked through my old posts and apparently, there’s no entry titled “The Forum Trip.” Odd. I must have named it something else. This past week marked my second Vegas trip with certain members of a private poker forum, hence the title. Since the forum originated from a love for online poker, we obviously spent […]

First blog in two weeks and it feels weird. I’ve played less than 200 games this month. Slacking. Of course, I was in Vegas for nearly a week. And my mom visited San Diego for a few days. But still, I should have put in at least 1500 games by now. I guess I was […]

The Bowl

I probably should write something. It’s been a week since my last blog entry, which is like an eternity for me. During that time, I haven’t played a single SNG. Not one. After May’s furious pace, I thought I’d take the first of June off. And then the second. And, well, then a few more. […]

After 4,000 games in May, I have earned a break. I didn’t feel like playing yesterday or the day before, so I didn’t. It’s as simple as that. I’ve blogged a lot about the pitfalls of playing poker for a living — but this is definitely one of the perks. When I don’t want to […]

The Photo Finish

A little after 11 PM I began loading my final set of the month. Although I knew I wouldn’t be able to finish all of the games by midnight, I decided to count any game that began on May 31st as volume for this month. Hey, it’s a goal I set for myself, I can […]
