This month I played 81 hours for an hourly rate of $159. I fell short of my 40k hand goal but at the end of the month it felt like every time I opened up some tables I either won like ~$500 or lost ~$2000 so my motivation to play was like nonexistent. I can’t […]

So it’s pretty rare that I go on tilt but today it was pretty unavoidable I think. Probably only lost 1.5 buyins or so due to direct tilt but omg I cannot remember the last time I’ve won an all in. Really poor luck inevitably leads to poor play for most players IMO. I guess […]

So I turned 22 today. Didn’t do very much, just had a pretty relaxing day which was fine with me. I went and saw Into the Wild in the theaters which was actually very good but not one of those mainstream movies that gets a lot of advertising $$$ and has 10 showings per day. […]

So I played super, super well today but ended down a little less than $3k. I guess this is kinda payback for playing poorly over the weekend but still winning :). I’m sure I will bounce back real soon like I always do because lately I feel I’ve just been playing my A+ game. My […]

Apparently I have a pretty good image on stars lol. Unfortunately the hand didn’t work out like it was supposed to but I earned a bunch of sklansky $$$$!

Got my 40″ yesterday and its pretty sweet. Haven’t been playing much poker lately but have been doing well nonetheless. I did manage to sleep through my coaching appointment with nutedawg though, I hope he’s not too pissed at me. We rescheduled for tomorrow so I’m looking forward to that. Just watched Quentin Tarantino’s Grindhouse: […]

So obviously I’ve been running sick hot lately. It’s like I can’t lose an all in. It’s kind of funny reading last post about how it’s only a matter of time before things turn around – well let me tell you they have. To be honest, I think my play has been pretty poor lately […]

So I watched a lot of football today and didn’t play too much. Both games were upsets and pretty good/surprising. My only hope is San Diego has what it takes to beat the Patriots next week. I hate those cheaters with a passion and if they win another superbowl I’ll probably throw up in my […]

So I took yesterday off to hang out with my girlfriend and whatnot, came back to play today and I gotta say I think my play suffered a little bit. I feel like poker playing is a skill just like playing an instrument, driving a car, or playing a video game and if you don’t […]

So I played a short session today and pretty much everyone playing 600nl on stars tonight was either a 12 tabling 18/14 nit or a buy in for $360 and see if I can’t make a run at it shortstack. It really allowed me to open up my game considerably preflop as you can see […]
