I received a lot of positive feedback on my last entry, but unfortunately this one won’t be as profound and insightful. Sorry folks, just a weekly results update. Games: 1632Profit: $2,002 (+$170 BOP Bonus)VPPs: 10, 029.21 I don’t like the trend that’s emerging — fewer VPPs earned by the week. The main focus during this […]

Earlier today, a poster on 2+2 asked for advice as he plans to play SNGs for a living, or at least 8 months until he starts a ‘real’ job. I started to craft a short reply and simply couldn’t stop. I’ve decided to post it here, as I think it sheds a lot of light […]

Fee-fi-fo-fum. Look out $4k bonus, here I come. I’m a mere 4600 FPPs away, so I should easily get that by lunch time tomorrow.

In my last entry, I alluded to my Thanksgiving plans — a private dinner hosted by PokerStars for VIPs who relocated to Vancouver. Other than free food, I had no idea what to expect. How many were invited? How many would show up? Five people? Five hundred? No clue. But I was excited about the […]

Apparently, I used the title of my last entry once before. Whoops. This will be a super short blog, as all I want to do is share a picture with the rest of you. My last 500 $15 18-mans have been disgusting. But stuff like that is bound to happen. Really can’t escape variance, can […]

Last year on Thanksgiving, I wrote about what I was thankful from my parents’ house in California. I wrote about being thankful for the warm San Diego weather and now I’m in the middle of Canadian winter. This year, I’m a thousand miles away from home, celebrating my first Thanksgiving in a foreign country, my […]

The second week is in the books, and I am happy to close the chapter on this week and start a fresh one. Games: 2109Profit: $1,768 (+$50 BOP Bonus and $225.60 in KO bonuses)VPPs: 12,570.49 So, uhh, this week sucked. I played more games, made less money, and earned fewer VPPs. What happened? First, I […]

The Avatar Bet

Last month, I made friends with a 180-man grinder (Soomagical) and he proposed an idea — We both gun for most overall profit in November and the winner gets to choose the loser’s avatar. Initially I was a bit hesitant, as I’ve never had an avatar other than my current ‘Psyduck’ and decided against changing […]

Ask and ye shall receive. Yesterday marked my first losing day of the challenge. I was up, down, even, back up, and back down. Not fun. But I wrote here that I wanted to know if I’d be able to maintain my volume/pace if I had a downswing and I guess I’m about to find […]
