Eat Up

Thursday, October 11th, 2007

Not sure why the formatting got all screwy with the graphic down below, but I wasn’t able to add this little post after the graphic for the Stars’ Blogger Tournament. Which, by the way, I’m going to win. Yes, this is the third consecutive year where I’m confidently predicting victory. What better way to piss…

I have registered to play in the PokerStars World Blogger Championship of Online Poker! This Online Poker Tournament is a No Limit Texas Holdem event exclusive to Bloggers.      

Uncle Gene

Wednesday, October 10th, 2007

The Bromberg name goes on! Justin Thomas Bromberg, 7lbs 15oz, introduced to the world about 15 minutes ago. Baby and mother are doing fine…and my brother reports that J.T. (I’m already calling him that) has a full head of red hair. Odd, neither Carolyn nor Ryan is a redhead…ehh, there’s a lot of red hair…

The Picture You Thought You’d Never See

Wednesday, October 10th, 2007

Longtime readers of this blog know that, many years ago, I occasionally directed criticism at one Phil Hellmuth, Jr. Of course, ripping Phil is practically a cottage industry these days. As is Phil himself, what with his clothing line, sunglasses, books, DVDs, energy drinks, and laundry detergent (for all I know). Still, I took my…

Jesus Christ On Line One

Tuesday, October 9th, 2007

I just watched the final table scene where Lee Watkinson’s girlfriend and Jerry Yang were alternately praying to Jesus to make the hand go their way. The funniest moment in televised poker history? I can’t think of a better one. Of course, there’s still 90 minutes to go.

Mean Gene’s Got Game

Tuesday, October 9th, 2007

Instead of taking a nap, I played a $10 tournament. Rejecting Dreamland turned out to be one of my rare good ideas: Maybe you can’t read that, but I finished 5th out of 1035, good for $548.56. Not bad for an $11 investment. Especially as I should’ve been out after about 45 minutes. I lost…

Home From Aruba

Monday, October 8th, 2007

Took about 13 hours to get from Aruba to my car, but the delays were no big deal. Went to Eat n Park around 1:30AM because I was starving and I sat down in a booth next to two douchebags who were talking about playing poker in a nearby bar. Which of course was just…

Toil In The Salt Mines

Wednesday, October 3rd, 2007

Today is Day 1B of the Aruba Poker Classic, and my workday has been a never-ending slog of ceaseless toil. Why, I barely had time to enjoy the champagne I had at lunch: Now don’t get started–we used to have champagne for lunch all the time when I was working at PNC Bank. And LandAmerica…

The Story Behind the Headlines!!

Tuesday, October 2nd, 2007

So I quickly check my stats today and notice that I’m getting a number of hits from a site called The Daily Item, which seems to be a newspaper of some sort serving Central and Eastern Pennsylvania. A writer named John Finnerty wrote a piece about how there’s a blog out there calling for Penn…

The Difference Between Aruba and Vegas

Monday, October 1st, 2007

You know the cliche about how it’s hot, but it’s a "dry heat"? Yeah, today in Aruba it was about 95 with 85% humidity. Do you like sweating? Because if you like to sweat, you’ll love Aruba. Last night was the big welcome to the island party and I made the mistake of wearing one…
