Vacation Time

Monday, December 18th, 2006

I’ll be back in Connecticut for about a week or so starting Tuesday night. While this means no playing in “The Wheatie” tomorrow, it certianly almost guarantees a trip or two to Foxwoods while I’m in the neighborhood. Drop me a line or give me a call if you’d like to hang out for poker […]

The poor guy never stood a chance…

Pirates and Poker… yar!

Wednesday, September 20th, 2006

On Monday I got out on two wheels again. However, this time I was using the two-wheeled transportation for which I used to be more well known, rather than the two-wheeled transportation powered by 1099cc of pure steel and sex appeal. Thanks to Angela, Jeremy and I were able to attend this Monday’s Pirates game […]

Escape from Pittsburgh

Wednesday, August 30th, 2006

Tomorrow evening, I’ll be heading back up to CT for the weekend. Book your Anti-Time now folks! I definitely need to escape campus after this last month. Hopefully I’ll get a chance to see some of the folks I missed on my trip up there earlier this summer. Also on the plan will be to […]

Live by The Jimmy, Die by The Jimmy

Wednesday, August 9th, 2006

So today was an up and down day in poker for me. Down in the cash realm, and nice and up in the Tourney realm. I started at the 1/2 limit tables, but really didn’t get too many good starting hands, and many of those good ones went sour on the flop. But being down […]

A Weekend of Tournament Adventure

Monday, August 7th, 2006

I have to say that this has been a pretty good weekend. Angela is away in Florida, which sucks, but that gives me more free time for a little game called poker. My PokerStars bankroll had gotten a little low, and I didn’t want to transfer in any more cash, really, as last week was […]

I won!

Friday, August 4th, 2006

I played in the wwdn blogger tourney this evening. Contrary to what the title of this post might lead you to believe, I did not win the tourney. I finished in 12th place out of 22. [I’d like to note that I got my chips in when I was ahead on the last hand 🙂 […]

So, the main event of the World Series of Poker is on. Day 1a was yesterday. Yes, Day 1a. There are 4 day 1’s. Yes, 4. Why? Well, because there’s something like over 8600 entries this year. Just 3 years ago, there were 839 entries in the 2003 WSOP Main Event–the $10,000 buy-in No Limit […]

The $2.5 Million Moneymaker Freeroll.

Monday, July 24th, 2006

A few weeks ago, after observing Mr. Jeremy in a few tournaments on Poker Stars, I switched from Party Poker to Poker Stars. The rakes and tournement fees charged by Poker Stars are less than that of Party, it’s a more attractive interface (with several different available themes), and there seem to be just as […]
