Super Fun Game Time

Game: Guess how many hours of online poker I have played since January 15th 2009.

Rules: One guess per lifetime to be left in the comments of this post. Deadline of 96 hours from the time stamp below. Closest to the correct answer wins (going over allowed).

Prize: Flashlight from last super fun game time as well as a hilarious pack of playing cards with benji on them (some accountant in Georgia sent them to entice me to let her do my taxes).

Time for Bed

Farmers go to sleep when the sun sets
Middle aged hippies go to sleep after the daily show
I go to bed when the infomercials come on for male enhancement pills

Hole in My Game

So my gf has been in Chicago for nearly two months now and I suck at long distance relationships. I am not sure if it's the fact that relationships of great distance are just difficult and I'm not giving it the needed attention/effort; or if my lazy attitude stems from some sort of disdain for the relationship at its core. Either way if things continue it could get ugly. Hopefully her visit this weekend and my voyage up to chi town next week will function as some sort of litmus test for the whole situation. It would be pretty stupid of me to ruin the best thing I have in my life because of indolence.

Passing Time

It's funny how playing for a week in a tournament and winning 30k resulted in many congratulations, but when I have a 50k week in the cash games people couldn't care less. No guts no glory.

P.S. I am about to get my hands on a craps table and run some extensive data analysis on dice control in the coming weeks...

Short Fuse

I think this past Vegas trip aged me about 45 years, because I have been the grumpiest old man since I've gotten home. I'm grouchy nearly all the time and all I want to do is read the local news while I pet my dog and eat figs while I do the Sunday crossword puzzle.

In a 4bet pot I jammed 1.2mil into a 700k pot with 56s on 589 one of my suit and this guy made a shocking call with AKo (average stack was 1.7m with 107 people left); turn 9 river ace. Game over. Pretty devastating. Cashed for 40k. Such a joke.

Day 6


Seat 1 Brian Hansen 549,000
Seat 2 John Martin 673,000 50k in cashes from smaller buy in events
Seat 3 Bolivar Palacios (panama)444,000 47k from two 7th place finishes
Seat 4 Ian Woodley (UK) 1,005,000 1mil in cashes, plays a ton
Seat 5 Ludavic Lacay (paris) 1,817,000 Word is he is super agro pre/solid
Seat 6 Adam Blizerian 1,056,000
Seat 7 empty
Seat 8 Joel Patchell (me) 1,701,000
Seat 9 Hamid Nourafchan (USA) 1,664,000 16k in cashes past 5 years

Vegas Upday

Rolling on to day 5 of the main event tomorrow with 762k chips, which puts me about 70th of the remaining 407. Also ran hot again tonight in craps. Nick is the most talented dice controller I've seen my entire career. Up about 14k on the craps table this trip. Going to be hard to stop this gravy train.

Living in a walkable neighborhood has always been a high priority of mine. Just stumbled on this website and my hood scored 86/100. Can anyone beat that?

Gambling Update

Another great craps sessions. Up 1759 there this trip. I believe I have learned how to control the dice. Also on a sick credit card roulette heater; I believe my streak is nearing 25 meals without losing with average of 4.3 people and 328 dollars a ticket.

WSOP Day 2

Won a big pot to start the day then took a nose dive into dinner break. Rallied after some food and won two medium pots that were flips. Chipped up nicely after that and finished up with 101,600; tad over average. Play starts back up Friday. Keep up with me on twitter.

Vegas Update from my iPhone

I start back up on Wednesday for day 2B with 50k (tad above average). I also looked up the odds for craps this morning. Betting the pass line with max back up odds the house edge is roughly .35%. What a game. Drunk 1/2 profits: -2700; drunk craps profits: 1059. Megaman get equipped with... Day 2 pro.
