The Poem

I’ve got a week left in San Diego which means I should probably spend my time hanging out with friends and enjoying what the city has to offer instead of staring at my computer screen and playing online poker. Should. Probably. Of course that’s assuming I can finish packing up all my stuff before my […]

The Eclipse

As of some time this week, I eclipsed the $100,000 profit mark on PokerStars. To be fair, I passed that threshold a long time ago in real life, just not according to Sharkscope. I think a lot of people would be excited by the idea of making $100,000 from poker, but it actually makes me […]

With all of the moving related tasks on my list of things to do, I didn’t think I’d play much this month. Whoops. Bad read on my part. – More than 2000 SNGs– 30+ hours of live cash– A handful of online MTTs– An unknown number of hands at .25/.50 netting 2800 BBs It really […]

I took most of this past weekend off from the online poker world, instead opting to spend time doing the real thing at Harrah’s Rincon. I’ve complained about the drive before, but it didn’t seem nearly as long as I spent the majority of the drive daydreaming about different scenarios which involved me not only […]

Around 10 PM last night, I decided I’d play SNGs until I was unstuck. I had dropped about $500 earlier that day and thought it’d be a fun little challenge to see if I could get myself back to even. Twelve hours later, I have my answer. No. Despite putting in more volume in the […]

The Hangover

I slept horribly last night, mostly because I drank way too much and water wasn’t one of the liquids I consumed. I guess there’s some water in rum, vodka, tequilla, diet coke, and red bull, but not nearly enough to keep my hydrated. When I woke up this morning at 8:30 AM and couldn’t fall […]

My last entry elicited quite a few interesting responses. Sorry to disappoint, but I won’t be trying to find Jesus anytime soon. Nor will I be quitting STTs. One thing I promised myself when I started this blog was that I’d be completely honest. I wanted to write about both the ups and the downs. […]

The Similarities

Only six blog entries in February? That’s less than January’s output and a far cry from the 15 or so I averaged each month in the last half of 2010. I’m not sure what it is, but I’ve felt burned out a bit recently. I’m not tired of playing, per se, but I’ve definitely lost […]
