The GTO

It’s nearly October and for many players on PokerStars, that means one thing – time to start that hectic end-of-year grind.  Over the next few months the tables will undoubtedly be filled with a higher concentration of regulars looking to reach VIP levels, milestones, and bonuses. While it’s tempting to blame the structure of PokerStars’ […]

The Philly Trip

After losing the Prop Bet to L.A.Ruseman, I spent the last week of August in Philadelphia. Note: Thanks to Andrew ‘FlyingLuske’ Smith for making this video in which I am CLEARLY the star of.  😉 Upon returning to Vancouver, my work-plan was pretty simple:  Let’s grind.  Was eager to put in some 8+ hour days, […]

The Retirement

No, I’m not retiring.  Not close. As Mark Henry once said, I’ve got a lot left in the tank.   Today, however, was my first day being semi-retired from $30 SNGs. My plan is to play only $60+ games, which should lower my table count quite a bit.  I’m hopeful that even though I’ll be […]

The Best

For the month of August, I’ll be involved in a Prop Bet vs Andrew “L.A.Ruseman” Russel.  Details of the bet are as follows: Prop begins August 1st, 2015, 12:01 AM PST and goes until August 31st, 2015, 11:59 PM PST. All games *started* during that time window are included in the prop. Bet is between […]

The Significant Changes

Last year, I wrote many blog posts detailing the high stakes, variance-filled roller coaster that was my first attempt at Supernova Elite.  It certainly wasn’t easy by any means, but about halfway through November I reached my goal and celebrated by taking the rest of the year off. Most of my readers are likely aware […]

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 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 […]
