The Gifs

I can’t find the words to describe last month, so perhaps a few gifs will do the trick.           If you guessed the third one was my favorite, you are correct. I’m sort of excited.  Last month was, to put it mildly, incredible.  When the dust settled, I had my most […]

The Euro TR: Sweden

Got back from my European vacation a little over two weeks ago and am overdue on a blog post. To my credit, I’ve tried to sit down and blog about the trip.  Several times.  And I just couldn’t do it. There’s simply too much to talk about — four countries, multiple cities, several flights, a […]

The European Vacation

Wednesday is when I’ll be saying good-bye to Playa del Carmen and starting my next chapter.  Adios Playa!  I’ll do a full recap tomorrow, complete with pictures of all (at least some) the food I ate, things I saw, and my overall impression of this place, but for now I wanted to focus on what […]

The Normal Day

In the near future, I want to start video blogging.  I’ve seen a few other guys do it and it seems more fun, interactive, and would be a nice change of pace from all those big blocks of text I end up posting.  There’s a phrase in the internet community known as tl;dr which means […]

The Interview

If you would have told me, six years ago,  that Collin Moshman would be interviewing me for PokerStrategy’s website, I would have laughed right in your face. Moshman?  Collin Moshman?  The author of several successful SNG books?  That guy?  Interviewing me?  Yeah, right.  Sure thing.  But lo and behold, on Wednesday afternoon, it happened. The […]

The Churro

I’m a fairly happy, positive person.  I tend to see the proverbial glass half full, am able to laugh at myself, and don’t take life too seriously.  But none of that applies while I’m grinding. While I’m a talkative person in real-life, it’s not the case during sessions, as I only speak to accomplish one […]

The Audible

In order to keep Supernova Elite and that precious 68% Rakeback, I’m required to earn 50,000 VPPs per month with up to two ‘buffer’ months where I don’t reach that total.  It shouldn’t  be that hard, considering I averaged almost double that last year.  But thanks to my Thailand/Disney-world excursions, I missed it in January. […]

The Perspective

Early Friday morning, I dragged myself out of bed to do a coaching session.  While I’ve drastically cut down on my coaching hours in the last year, when I do sessions they always seem to revitalize my interest in the game.  Each hand is like a puzzle to me and once I “solve” a few […]

The Gripes

New year, same old gripes. Variance is inescapable, but alas I had been away from the game for so long that I mostly forgot about it.  No worries though, the poker gods were around to remind me.  Through ~2000 games this month I’m down $3000 before rakeback.  Yuck.   Games do appear rather reg-infested and […]

The Direction

After having way too much fun, I’m back in Playa del Carmen and back to work. The transition from leisurely vacation to structured grind hasn’t exactly been seamless.  Flew into town on the 20th and figured I’d wake up the next day and bang out eight hours of work like I used to.  Nope.  I […]
