    I think I was tad excitable and action-hungry playing a wsop event and other mtts on my first full day in Vegas. I was hungover, jet-lagged and probably not in the best frame of mind to be grinding a 4-day comp. It takes some time to get used to your surroundings, adjust...

    My 44 day trip to Las Vegas (or Sin City as I now prefer to call it) started on the 10th June. I travelled alone & went with the plan that I would not play any table games or party excessively while the WSOP was still going on. I had five...

    Been thinking a lot about poker recently and wondering do I even like the game? I remember when I first started playing... I would literally be playing 20 hours a day from 1 tabling upto 4 and I just had the poker bug I would play anything from SNG. MTT, Cash,...

    I started a new alias name and account on Aced Poker.  In the U.S. we are limited as to choice of poker sites because our government thinks it's a game of luck.  Ha.  Wish I could agree - I'd have ALOT more money.  Anyway, I had been playing on Carbon for...
