Hey Guys, So I've been in full grind mode since I've gotten setup in Vancouver.  Some might say I should go out and experience the city, but those people don't understand how much I enjoy being inside and playing poker. I've been running pretty hot, which has been a nice welcome back to o... Read More →

Hey Guys, Long long time.  I spent 3 extremely hectic months in Vegas, and just this last week I got to Vancouver.  I've been settling into my new place with my friends who came with me.   I finally got my Stars account working again and have been playing the last two days.  I  missed...

Hey Guys, This is my first blog post since black friday.  A lot of people have come to me for answers, and the truth is, I don't know any better than most of you.   I think your decision about what to do next is very dependant on your situation.  If you can afford to, I think the best c...

Hey Guys, So after my largest downswing ever, I had the (I think) biggest winning month of my career in March.  I recovered pretty much everything I lost in the two months prior. In the first few days of April, I'd dropped about 40% of what I made back last month.  The especially discour... Read More →

Hey BFP,Long time, no blog.I've been grinding nonstop this month.  I have had a lot of motivation to rebuild my roll after my massive downswing.Fortunately it's worked!  I'd like to think it's because I've improved so much and played so well, but it's likely just the opposite side of variance.I've...

Hey Guys, As many of you know, I've been on a pretty big downswing.  Actually, it's the biggest of my career.  I believe it's currently at about 1.7 (though it started directly after a +400 day, so I'm not sure it fully counts) I talk a little bit about it during this interview I did the...

Hey Guys, I got back yesterday after being gone for 3 weeks.  Wow.  I know some people leave home for that long, but I guarantee none of them love home as much as I do. Vacation and family stuff was all good, but I''m excited to get back to work.  Leaving poker for a couple weeks lately... Read More →

Hey Guys,   A lot has been going on lately, and will continue to be going on.   I played on HSP a couple days ago.  It was a lot of fun, but I can''t discuss results.  They filmed it this year in 3D, which is gonna be… I don''t know, weird?  Maybe it''ll be cool.  I''m ex... Read More →

Hey Guys, I spent Thanksgiving with my extended family down in MD, as usual.  Just got back to NYC on Sunday and back to work yesterday.  I had a slightly losing day yesterday and I'm slightly losing again today.  There has been a lot of action lately, so I'll probably have a good chance to ...

Hey Guys,  I was hoping some of you would submit some video footage for me to use for videos.  I've never done video reviews, except of Don's play, and I think it could be very educational. I'm looking for huNL and huPLO only... I have trouble getting good hu footage, so I think this wil... Read More →
