Its been a while

So its been nearly a year since i last updated. I haven't missed it. I withdrew most of my money and eventually busted the remainder shortly after my last post. I did not play again until December. I didnt miss it.Over the years of playing i had accumulated over 15k in FPP. when i felt like playing again I started playing FPP tournaments. Eventually i found the 90fpp 18seat sats to the midnight madness tournament. These were pretty soft, and with $11 for first place i quickly accumulated over...


Haven't been playing much lately. Just haven't felt right. When i have free time I've been tired or had places and things to do. My frame for a successful tournament is basically to be well rested, well feed, focused and have about 4.5hrs free time.None of these requirements seem to come together recently... so even when i decided to play i didn't do well... meh.I'm feeling better this week and hopefully will play a few 180s before the end of the...

Bizarro Poker

Thats the only way i can describe what I've witnessed on the tables over the past couple days. I did play on Sunday but only cashed in the Turbo Take down for $35.00, finishing around 9000th out of 30,000 registered. I played ok, but i have to admit that i was a bit distracted by mafia wars. Wow, is that game addictive or what! I log on to play for a short period and end up easily spending hours playing. I'm currently at level 27 and have 155 mafioso in my family after 4 days of play. I'm...

Sunday Tournaments

I haven't updated in awhile. I've been spending alot of time recently playing Mafia Wars on facebook. Its a really addictive game, has to be since it kept me from poker. Guess its something to running a criminal enterprise.I managed to play several $4 180 sngs on stars and managed to get relatively deep in all of them (final 3 tables) made two final tables finishing 2nd and 3rd. I finished in the 20s around the bubble in the others, and felt i couldve easily gone deeper.Today i plan on playing...

Observe your opponents

Poker is a game of information, the more you have the better decisions you can make. The easiest way to get information is by observing your opponents. Since we're playing online that means noticing their bet size, position, and the hands they play.While playing recently i realized that i make certain generalizations about my opponents based on what i observe from them.I will go over a few of the basic assumptions;LimpingI don't pay much attention to this in the early rounds. But later when...

I'm a criminal?!

We have really weird and unfair gambling laws in this country. Gambling is only legal for tourists in liscensed casinos. But locals cannot enter these casinos and cannot legally gamble anywhere in the country. So basically, every time i log onto pokerstars or ftp i'm commiting a crime. And everytime i withdraw money and deposit it to my account, i'm engaging in money laundering. Crazy!But recent incidents and public sentiment has me believing that gambling will be legalized with the next couple...
