The Pyrite SNGs

The mineral pyrite, or iron pyrite, is an iron sulfide with the formula FeS.  This mineral’s metallic luster and pale brass-yellow hue have earned it the nickname fool’s gold because of its superficial resemblance to gold. — Wikipedia   Before the Golden SNG promotion began, I wrote that I hoped to bink one in every […]

The Million

Yesterday, I earned my one millionth VPP at PokerStars. If I managed to do that in a calender year, I’d be Supernova Elite.  But no, unfortunately it took me about six years to get here.  So…congrats?  I’m not really sure if this is a brag.  On one hand I can say that reaching this milestone […]

The Golden SNGs

The latest (and possibly greatest) SNG promotion started on June 17th, at 11 AM.  And by 11:01, I had a game up.  If I could sum up this promotion in one word, it would be addicting. My desire to play has ramped up quite a bit, as the possibility of 2x, 4x, and 10x prize-pools […]

The Omission

Last night I had dinner with a friend of mine, a friend who doesn’t play poker.  We took turns chatting about the current events in our lives but at certain points I found myself biting my tongue. I wanted to talk about how well June has been going for me.  I wanted to talk about […]

The Check-In

Even though it’s only the 13th the month is more than half over for me.  With that in mind, I thought it’d be a good time to check-in on how I’m progressing in regards to my monthly goals. 180-man SNGs/MTTs Goal: 500 games Where I should be: 270 games Where I am: 128 games, +$1,340 […]

It’s rather common to see one player abusing another in the chat box.  The severity of insults vary from attacks on poker ability to more personal slurs occasionally involving one’s mother.  Here’s a list of stuff I’ve seen in the past week: You suck LOL Terrible I hope you die seriously, fkkk u abarone What […]

The New URL

Welcome! Recently I hired someone much more tech savvy than myself to move my blog over here and give it a professional looking make-over.  WordPress is supposed to be much more user friendly so that means I’ll likely blog more often and the posts will be easier on the eyes. I didn’t think the latter […]

The Amendment

Oops. Originally I thought I’d be headed to Bangkok/Hong Kong on the 26th of June but I was mistaken.  My flight actually leaves two days earlier, so that’s two less days for me to reach my volume goals.  But there is hope in the form of a PokerStars promotion. PokerStars real money Sit & Go’s […]

The New Goals

Pretty sure I would have composed this entry last night if I had shipped either goal, but I fell short and decided to avoid the blog until the following day. [ ] Writing about failing is fun Obviously I’d much rather write about how I ran well, made a decent chunk of money, and managed […]
