Time and time again, I see people play overly tight, hoping to get paid off whenever they pick up a strong hand. While everyone probably knows to simply fold whenever a tight player enters the pot, it seems like the tight player often finds a way to get all-in before the flop with A-A. The easiest way to avoid set-up situations against the tight players is to simply never give them action. Read More
In this blog post, I am not only going to tell you how I got fat, but I will also explain how I got in the best shape of my life.
Throughout this post, I will outline changes you can make to your eating habits to get in great shape with minimal effort.
As a 12 year old boy, my diet consisted of microwavable chicken pot pies, canned vegetables, and Coca-Cola. Sometimes we would get lucky and have pizza or Chinese food.
Traveling is usually fun. Sometimes it is a nightmare. This time, American Airlines and US Airways provided a fun little nightmare that is going to result in me losing around $2,000 in reservations, losing a day, and missing a good friend’s wedding. Thanks for that!
Maybe they will fix the problem. We will see.
I have been working hard to make this site as great as possible.
If you have any comments or suggestions for how I can improve it, please let me know!
Thank you. Read More
In this blog post, I will present fun hands that are posted on YouTube that I find particularly enjoyable. Some are educational; some are purely for entertainment purposes. I hope you enjoy them.
This is perhaps my favorite hand. Feel free to mute the commentators. Watch the magic!
I can’t believe I have to post this in 2014, given all of the excellent poker educational material available, but during a few recent tournaments, I was shocked and amazed to witness countless mediocre (possibly) professional poker players say “nice hand” in a condescending way to amateurs after they got lucky, taking the pro’s money.
I want to make it perfectly clear that this sort of behavior is unacceptable in every possible way. You make money because the weak players show up to play. If you make them uncomfortable or bring it to their attention that they played poorly, they could quite realistically stop playing or improve their skills, killing your edge. Read More
The 2014 WSOP introduced the concept of the “Monster Stack” tournament, which provides each player with a much larger starting stack than normal.
While it is a well-known fact among professionals that they have a larger edge with a larger stack compared to a smaller stack, the Monster Stack event was one of the largest of the series, attracting a whopping 7,862 players. Read More
