Haven't really played much poker since coming back from Vegas. Played a couple of tournaments but with little success. Most ended on bad beats, like the clown calling my 200 raise (up from 40) with Q 5 suited and proceeds to hit his flush to crack my A A.
When I get in the right mindset, I will attack the Maui Jackpot SnGs at Noble Poker. The promotion is to pay off $15,000 for anyone that can win 6 of these $5 SnGs in a row. If you come in 1st or 2nd in 6 straight, they will give you $200. I figure I should be able to at least catch the $200 so will focus on that when I get back into the online mood.
In the meantime, I will do what every other poker blogger is doing and pimp Dr. Pauly's site. The man is working hard in Vegas giving us blow by blow of all WSOP events. Go check him out.
Also, check out the Poker Prof, with his updates on everything poker in Vegas. There you can check out the amazing story unfolding about Charlie that is unfolding. Unfortunately in too many competitions they focus on the assholes. This year, poker players are stepping up, reaching out to someone that loves the game they play that has unfortunately been dealt a bad hand. Jason Spaceman is Charlie's friend who is helping him enjoy life to his fullest. We can all use a friend like Jason.
Go read them. They prove there are much more important things in life than catching Pocket Rockets and winning a tournament.
Edit: Also go read Felicia. I met this highly intelligent woman briefly in Vegas. I was the only one stupid enough to bet into her after she warned me she had the best possible hand. She has gone through her own battle and still makes time to go out of her way to make someone else comfortable. I envy the other bloggers that know Felicia a lot better than I.
