The Fun

About a week ago I reached 300k VPPs for the year. Perhaps I should have posted an entry about that earlier, but I couldn’t seem to find the time.  Spent the 23rd-27th in the U.S. celebrating Christmas and I’m back in Mexico, recharged and ready to start 2014. But the year isn’t over quite yet.  […]

The Postcard

Last night, the internet went out.  I immediately cursed myself for not having backup internet, something I told myself I’d buy as soon as I got settled in Mexico.  But I never got around to it so there wasn’t much I could do other than wait for the internet to come back.  Usually that doesn’t […]

The Complex

December has started out poorly, but I’m still in good spirits.  I’m ~$3k under EV (in 600 games!) but that hasn’t affected my attitude one bit.  Besides, I ran above EV roughly the same amount in November. During that November upswing, I noticed several regulars become increasingly upset with me.  At first I was mildly […]

The Golden SNGs II

Golden SNGs are back. As you might have already guessed, I’m not nearly as excited as I was the first time.  Or even the second.  While I’m happy that PokerStars is paying attention to SNGs and pumping money into the games, I knew what this promotion meant: one week of reg infested games.  Typically in […]
