The Relaunch

FullTilt is back! ..but not for me. No, while others play on the site, I have to wait for my verification documents to be approved.  This wouldn’t be an issue if I had logged in from my old computer, but that device is thousands of miles away.  So instead, I get to send in various […]

The Baptism

I love Monday mornings.  It’s definitely a new thing; on Mondays I do my best to avoid the outside world until I’ve had a chance to watch every single football game that took place the night before.  Actually it’s not really the ‘outside world’ I have to avoid because Thailand/its people don’t give a shit […]

The Mindset

I had planned on putting in more volume tonight, but around this time the tables seem to be filled with at least four regulars so unless the games get a bit better, I think I’m done.  That’s the double edged sword of playing during peak hours — games load rather quickly, but that’s because the […]

The Experiment

I think I’m taking tomorrow off.  I’ve earned it. October was my first full month back at the tables and I’m mostly satisfied with the results.  I say “mostly satisfied” because while I had a solid month, profit wise, I did fall a bit short of my five figure goal.  If I had my Supernova […]

The Torture

Since the start of the playoffs, I’ve been scheduling my life around game times for the San Francisco Giants.  It wouldn’t be much of an issue if I were back on the west coast, but I’m 14 hours ahead of Pacific Standard Time so that means a day game in SF takes place in the […]

It’d be optimistic of me to say I have a shot at Supernova in 2012.  As of right now, I have earned 28,000 VPPs this year — obviously the total would be higher if I hadn’t played 180s/MTTs in January/February annnnnnnd if I hadn’t taken that six month break from online poker.  Could I still […]

The Exorcist

The curse has been lifted! After I cashed out on the 11th I figured a gross downswing was inevitable but I’m very happy to report that I was wrong.  At the time, I had played roughly 1,750 games this month and was running sixty dollars over expectation.  Since that point, I’ve managed to put in […]

The Fruits

Cashing out should be a celebratory occasion.  It signifies that I’ve defeated my opponents and their money, the fruits of my labor, now becomes tangible.  I should feel proud, accomplished, satisfied.  But each time I hit the ‘submit’ button in the cashier tab, I wince.  The cash-out curse is a silly superstition but one that’s […]

The New Building

One day after returning from Laos, I moved into my new building.  Kinda sad, considering how much I enjoyed the old place.  In addition to being spacious, it was colorful, comfortable, and clean thanks to the maid staff that came twice a week.  But above all else, I need solid, reliable internet to make a […]

The Kill

Sometimes, the cards don’t fall your way.  At first, the feeling is mild annoyance.  Possibly frustration.  But as you continue to lose pots and get rivered, that frustration can boil over into a despicable rage.  It happened today and I wound up murdering another being.  Weather wise, it was beautiful this morning.  So beautiful that […]
