Enjoy The Moral Victories, Especially When There Are No Immoral Ones To Be Had

Thursday, February 17th, 2005

One of the aspects of poker I find so alluring is that there are no absolute truths to be found in the game. Virtually every question one can ask about poker can be answered with two words–“It depends”. There are rules, theories, and mathematical realities that act as a guide toward profitable play, but in…

I’ve No Idea What to Write About

Wednesday, February 16th, 2005

But I have a few minutes to go in my lunch hour and feel like exercising my fingers. Well, if you don’t want to waste your time to read the insanity that Iggy is posting throughout the day. Maybe not such a good idea if you’re at work, as I started laughing so hard I…

Frustrating Night

Wednesday, February 16th, 2005

Though I shouldn’t be frustrated, I am, a wee bit. I finished my 2nd article–that’s good. I felt free to relax and play a little 2-table SNG. I play much better in the multis, I think because I know I have to be patient and there’s no need to make any ridiculous moves. I doubled…

What Health Care Crisis?

Tuesday, February 15th, 2005

One of the advantages of being a temp is that you get no paid sick time. That’s the only reason I can think of for me not getting the flu this year. I’ve gotten sick the past 3 winters, yet this year, when I can’t afford to miss any time, I’m in perfectly fine fettle….

Monday, February 14th, 2005

My article is now up at PokerMagazine.com and will probably be posted at PokerTV soon too. Hope you’ll check it out, hope you enjoy it. I asked the editor to include a link to the blogger mentioned in the piece, so hopefully that’ll be there before too long. And I’m hard at work on another…

Ain’t Got This Game Figured Yet; and Other Random Thoughts

Saturday, February 12th, 2005

So I sat down to play a little poker tonight, been playing lousy lately and I figured I’d play a $5 3-table multi at Empire. You know, mimimize my exposure, maybe have a few minutes fun before I got down to other business. So I blow 4/5 of my stack on an outkicked ace (Q…

Picking Up My Quill

Thursday, February 10th, 2005

Rather than beat around the bush I’ll just say what my good news is and be done with it. About a week ago I got an email from a new web publication asking if I’d be interested in writing some poker articles for them, and of course I said yes. So they gave me an…

Comment Away

Thursday, February 10th, 2005

OK, tried this before and when I posted the Haloscan comment thingy went away. I think it’s easier to comment using Haloscan and so I’m going back to it, but I want to make sure it doesn’t vanish when I post again. So I’ll post this and see if it works. It should, dammit. Real…

I Am A Complete Idiot

Thursday, February 10th, 2005

I had a great day today, got some good news that tickled me pink, made me feel better than I’ve felt in a long time. But the good news post will have to wait a day or so, and instead I will berate myself for playing some completely unacceptable poker in the hopes that the…
