The Abberation

This past week has been fantastic. Fan. Tas. Tic. I’m playing well, running well, and putting in a solid amount of volume. There’s only one small problem — I can’t seem to beat $16s. Okay, so I’m still beating them but I’m not supposed to be beating them. I’m not really sure how to explain […]

Roman numerals, baby! This morning, Matt told me that he planned on heading home early Friday morning, meaning that “today” was our last day of the poker week. And after coming so close these past few days, I thought how it would be incredibly sweet to take down a multi-table tournament — even a small […]

The Poker Week III

Started today off with a deep run in a 6-max $24+2 Rush MTT on FullTilt. I had been running over the table for the majority of the tournament, employing some fantastic MTT strategies I picked up from PokerVT. Down to two tables, each four handed, I get QQ all-in preflop against A6… Huge favorite, one […]

The Poker Week II

Today was, ahem, better. I ended up putting in nearly 300 games and while the red line wasn’t spectacular, it was at least solid. I played all sorts of games, but $16s were most profitable as I made $1k+ over 140 of them. Because of that, I was able to post a decent BOP score […]

Earlier this year, Matt “Glitlr” Meo came down to San Diego for a weekend full of SNGs. And while neither of us ran particularly well, we both managed to put in significant volume. With me still inspired to earn as many VPPs as possible, I figured we should do it again — but this time, […]

On the drive home from Santa Barbara, my eyelids felt awfully heavy. I figured once I arrived in San Diego, I’d drop my bags, fall face first onto my bed, and catch up on the sleep that eluded me over the weekend. That didn’t happen. As I threw everything on the floor of my room, […]

The New Mouse

When I woke up this morning, I did something I almost never do — I took a shower before starting a set. Normally, I groggily stumble over to my computer, surf the interwebz, and load up games. Not today. Today I had to buy that new mouse. Yep, it’s the same model I had before. […]

R.I.P. Mouse. I’d like all of you to know that it died of natural causes. Many mice before him met violent deaths, but he went peacefully. I tried to buy a new mouse yesterday but Staples/Office Depot was closed. I actually was able to walk inside but was stopped soon after. Me: You’re closed? For […]

I think I’m going to take tomorrow off. Don’t worry PokerVT members, I’ll still participate in the private SNGs and record videos for both games. Oh, and I do have an hour of coaching scheduled — but aside from those things, no poker. …blah, even on my day “off,” that’s a fair amount of time […]

I started a blog post yesterday and simply couldn’t find the strength to finish it. I didn’t necessarily have a bad day, but it surely wasn’t a good one. It happened to be one of those days that’s best classified as “meh.” Most of the blame can probably be placed on my decision to play […]
