new Blog Post Poker Paradox New Blog Post #poker #IRS #micros

I've started grinding on Carbon again.  Getting the feeling these skins allowing US players aren't going to last long and will go through some growing pains when the US gets legalized again... but I think that will be sometime THIS year.

Moving to Las Vegas

I'm going on a working trip this weekend to LA, then to Vegas next weekend.

Might not be until December, but I'm going to look at places in Vegas to Rent or Buy.  I'll start blogging again with my live play, and maybe livestreaming some.  Time to revive the site here ;) 

Cardrunners is looking for people with footage of leakfixing if any of you have footage available.

I played a small (2 table) tournament live last night, and got 2nd.  Nice to pad the bankroll right…

Didn't win a car, didn't win $200k.. but i could have !

but I did cash in 6 tournaments today of the 12 I played.  50% In The Money


made $39.88 after expenses, so that pays for the two $11 tourneys I played today.

And I have a $22 Scoop ticket to use, and an $11 Scoop ticket.  Will have to save up more before May!


Played some cash.. dropped 3 buyins in 10 mins! (got my money in good each time!!) ... then spent remainder of time earning way back up to 2 buyins down.  Blech!


If I was playing…

PokerStars The Big Game.. I have finally qualified again!

After the first time, I wanted to qualify again, to make my resume stand out from the 5000 other people in the casting pool :) It took a while of trying, but I never gave up, kept playing the round 2's and a few round3's but never quite making it again.. until today! FINALLY!

Now it's time to make my Big Game video, and I'll post it and link it for all here to see, and maybe with enough positive attention, I'll end up on TV for the Big Game playing with 100k vs the pros.. chasing Nadya… Continue

Grinding Tourneys

I used to view Tournaments as higher variance than cash. But it's obviously not the case for me anymore.

I cashed in 4 tournaments again today, and 6 yesterday. I find them less tilting than cash. They are being more consistent and less variance for me. I was playing mostly cash, with tournaments a couple days a week. But now, I'm going to reverse that. I'm going to play tournaments most days of the week, and only play cash when it suits me. It's only a matter of time before I take…

Anti Tilting Venting Post.. these kinds of hands in a landslide, kill a session and require me to hit my reset button.

Hand #1 Obvious bad call # 1 LIKE DUH OBVIOUSLY! - Did he really just float me with KJs? I tanked before calling, thinking 6, but decided he had T or weaker Q.. was suprised by Flush.

I know better than to play this way, don't even comment! This is an atypical fuck up.. not normal.

NOTES on the fishes, the regs, the inbetweens, a 3 second investment that makes you money!

I have not seen enough talk about this small but important topic. Taking notes on the players at the tables.

HEM or PT3 stats are a great benefit to any player, but only give part of the picture. You need a really big sample for them to be accurate. I play a lot more hours than your average player, and even so, there are only certain regs where I get a huge enough sample to know a players habits by stats alone. However, along with those stats, I keep notes, and I find they are often… Continue

Latest news, working on my game, and time for me!

I've got some new posts on my Poker Blog, Poker Paradox

I've had a devil of a time the past couple months. But overall, I have slowed down on the grinding and been working on my game.

I had to slow down and concentrate on my tables, find out where I was leaking money. Where I was leaving value on the table, where I was calling too much instead of raising, review my game.

Also, offline distractions.. like worrying about money,… Continue
