The Miss Step

My flight to Macau leaves early tomorrow afternoon so today marked the last day I’d be playing online poker in a while.  And it went pretty well. Only misstep was successfully barreling off three quarters of my stack in the ‘Members Only’ PokerVT tournament, although I felt aggression was warranted in both spots.  Speaking of […]

It’s 3 AM in Thailand and this is the latest I’ve stayed up since coming back in the country.  But I have a good reason — I didn’t want to go to sleep until PokerStars “calculated” the BOP scores for this past week because as of early afternoon, I was in third place and in […]

The Water Festival

Sawatdi Pi Mai! I returned to Chiang Mai just in time to celebrate the Thai New Year, known as Songkran.  Officially, it’s a holiday celebrating renewal, cleansing oneself, and paying respect to elders.  Unofficially?  It’s a country-wide water fight.  I armed myself with a ‘Super Shooter’ and spent most of the afternoon spraying people, primarily […]

It’s my last day in the U.S. before I head back to Thailand.  Bangkok, to be specific.  Rather than take three flights and stay up 30+ hours so I could get to Chiang Mai, I decided to spread it out and spend a day/night in Bangkok.  Drink a few coconuts, have a nice meal, and […]
