I Do Not Want This

So I drove my scooter home this evening in Friday night Atlanta traffic in the rain after half a bottle of wine, four beers, and a cocktail. I probably should have died, but I guess it wasn't my time. I should probably give my poker passwords to someone so if I do die a crap load of money doesn't go wasted/ungambled. Drinking with friends is my favorite thing to do when not playing poker. I also love doing what everyone doesn't expect me to do. Blogging is fun. Vegas is hot. Women are hard/easy. I am in left field. I want to know everything. I want to be everywhere. I want to fuck everyone in the world. I want to do something that matters.

An early lesson on the consequences of having an unbalanced bluffing range: The Boy Who Cried Wolf. Think about it.

Sunday, May 23, 2010


I went to four parties in the past two days. I am vaguely associated with a few social circles, but I don't really feel accepted by any. I have a good amount of friends, but don't feel particularly close to any individuals. I continually get panic attacks in social settings despite being invited and inebriated. If it weren't for an over loving Italian mother and a dog that needs me to feed it I would have very little reason to keep living. It may just be the depressing affects of alcohol, but I don't really care about much of anything these days. I am pretty bored with my existence. Games are the only thing I enjoy. I wonder if I can blame my exuberant amount of time on my laptop for my slacking real life skills. I feel like giving up on women and friends and family. I may be spherical in appearance and seem to orbit the sun, but I am no planet.

It's I against the world and I'm strapped

Snooze x11

I now get .05% interest on my checking account. I am a losing online tournament player. I would set the over under for the next time I kiss a woman at 209 days. The crank for my passenger window broke. I spend most of my free time golfing by myself or reading at the pool. I think my dog is well aware that he is cooler than I am; he is still my best friend. When I was growing up my father used to be very discrete about showing any cash while in public; that apple fell far from the tree. People think I am naturally good at many things, but what they cease to realize is I have an insane amount of free time, which allows for ample practice. How else would one get to Carnegie Hall. I am growing tired of my wardrobe. My days are brightened by unnecessarily long walks and the endless possibilities for the future.

Not Writing

I was going to write about how my life has been in idle lately, but it is still sort of a roller coaster. I was going to write about things I wanted to do with my spare time, but the list was short. I was going to write about my thoughts on dating and marriage, but they're not insightful. I was going to write about what I expect for the WSOP this year, but I don't like to speculate. I was going to write about my deepest inner thoughts, but I was afraid what might come up.

Megaman Equip with...

So I picked up a new concept in poker tonight that I had yet to ever stumble upon before. It comes in handy in situations where you are facing a river bet from an opponent with a bluff catcher. In very close decisions in unlikely spots often the difference maker in the hand can be having blockers for your opponents likely hands that would have been turned into bluffs. For example in omaha if you had a warp+over pair on a paired board and the river brought three of a kind and your opponent just called a turn bet and made a big river bet, it is harder for him to have a wrap turned bluff (since you have most of those cards) and would weigh his hand more towards the quads or aces. Just something to chew on...

Super Fun Game Time Conclusion

So apparently cutting back on drinking is a healthier way of life. I called for the results and they said it was 1.3. Congrats to Tyler who won after guessing it correctly right on the head. If you want you can email me your contact info so I can send you the winnings after I cash later this July. Thanks for playing everyone and better luck next time...

P.S. If you are a PTR nut like me, let me know and I will send you a premium beta invite - I have five.

Super Fun Game Time

When I went to the doctor earlier this year my bilirubin levels were at 2.2H mg/dL where the recommended healthy levels were 0.2-1.2.

Game: Guess what my lab results will be from my doctor visit on Friday having severely cut down on my drinking this past month. You're guess is as good as mine...

Rules: One guess per lifetime to be left in the comments section and rounded to the nearest tenth decimal point. Game will end whenever the results come in the mail (should be a day or two).

Prize: .1% of my main event action this year at the WSOP
