17 2015 January edition
Happy New Years to Everybody! Mine started off wonderfully as I partied my ass off in NOLA and got to see my Boys (Ohio State) take care of business in the Superdome. Earlier in the day I decided to throw down 350 on Michigan State winning and Ohio State covering 7.5 parlay. The bet was over before it began as Michigan State went down 20 by the 4th quarter. Oh well I wasn't going to let it ruin ...

4 Moving forward with 2015 while reflecting on 2014
Since 2011, I really had not played much. Sure, I had dabbled here and there a bit on Merge and WPN. But not a ton. In June of this year i took a job working normal hours. 7 am-3pm M-F. I decided that because of these hours, I would start playing poker a bit more regularly. Around this time, I had put a little $ together that i was going to deposit for a small roll on merge. But they had given me ...

3 2014 Poker Year in Review > Blog Update > 2015 goals/expectations
2014 was a wacky year for me, poker wise of course. I started out the year having to go back to my old play$ games/leagues after busting my entire $400 roll that I built off freerolls in two nights because I disobeyed bankroll management, tilted like crazy, ran like shit, and couldn't keep my ego in check. I played stakes and games I never should have been in, and paid the ultimate price. Rather ...

1 Goals for 2015
2014 was by far the roughest year of my life. In the beginning of the year, I was attending school full time and playing on carbon to make money for myself. Three weeks after my biggest score ($6,500) my father passed away of a heart attack leaving my twin brother and me to fend for ourselves financially. My father's passing greatly affected my play. I became complacent with my game, playing ...

1 Motivation
What's up guys! Recently, I've found some new motivation. I have to admit, first, that I really enjoy playing with you all (Carbon/Sportsbook). When I first started playing poker on Stars, years ago, I always wanted to have like people at my table that I see as a rival -- but in a good way. I always wanted to say, "damn, why did they move (insert your name) to my left". As of the last few ...

1 The working man's schedule
Like a lot of people, I have a day job.

I am not a professional so it is not easy to convince her that its more than just of ...

1 Getting back to the grind in 12 days !

I was here for a job training in electronics. That experience is the worst I ever had in my life. For the past 4 months I had to stop playing poker cause Pokerstars is closed in USA.

When it comes to playing poker head should be in the "right" place. Since lately my personal life has been up and down. I feel emotionally drained, and I am now feeling it physically. My job is so stressful and it's taking a significant toll on my life on the felts. My drive to win a big tourney has now consumed me to the point where I HATE MY JOB. Just the thought of going there is a task ...

93 2014 Year in Review
I haven't blogged since last year's relatively early exit from the WSOP Seniors event. Not much else happened poker-wise in 2013. I played a NLH Cash game, along with my older brother, at Parx Casino in Philly. Both of us managed to lose our entire $150 Buy-Ins without winning a hand. I lost my bankroll on a single hand when my Pocket Queens were cracked by a 75o straight. This year was a bit ...

1 Plan to make a living playing poker. I need the secret recipe for building a roll.
I guess I should tell a little about myself first. From around 2005 to 2008ish I made the majority of my living playing poker. I was very profitable, but had a problem with addiction that absorbed my profits. A good friend of mine gave me great advice that I should leave the game of poker for a while, get a college degree and then come back to play the game when I was more mentally prepared ...
