Life News

I recently joined the Poker News strategy team. It's a pretty strong lineup of some very talented poker minds. This week I made two training videos at ten cent twenty five cent PLO shallow that will be up on the site soon. You can check it out here: http://strategy.pokernews.com/

Roller Coaster

I noticed a slight pattern in the my past couple of relationships. It seems like my girlfriend feels and expresses extreme highs and lows while my perception of the emotional level of the relationship is rather even keel. I wonder sometimes if my emotional spectrum is horribly miscalibrated. Yesterday was the biggest come back in my poker career. I was playing 25/50 shallow PLO all day and at one point was stuck over 76k and managed to pull a profit for the day. I am finally back in black for the year. This was the biggest hand:
