Tuesday, August 12th, 2008

Over a year later the details of why I started the previous post are fuzzy. What i do remember was that the rest of the nigh being short stacked I picked good positions to shove in and made the final table. At the final table I got hot, really hot and ended up heads up. […]

Placing Second

Thursday, May 31st, 2007

Placed second out of a field of 35, I should feel pretty good about that right? I don’t. Here’s why: I was up and down all night mostly down. I won a a few hands early playing pretty solid but didn’t manage to keep many chips over the starting amount we got. Right before the […]

Swings Part Deux

Wednesday, January 10th, 2007

Mon night we played again at one of our favorite places, Jay’s Family Diner on North Washington at 78th. The food is really good and we get a good crowd, some pretty good players as well. I had the Chicken Cordon Blue (sp?)and it is excellent! I’ve been opting out of the soda for Tea […]

It is interesting to me how much my game can swing from bad to good from week to week. In a tournament especially in the bar leagues, one mistake can really cost you the tourney. Most of the games we play in are pretty small, maybe 16-30 people sometimes less, just depends on the night. […]

An article over at talks about Washington State Extending Poker Ban to Writing about Poker. Read the Article here: Cardsquad What? Oh please! I can see, and hope, that this one gets dragged into court on free speach grounds. I’m just sooo very glad I don’t live in Washington state …

Celebrity Poker
