Well... here it is. Over a year since the last time I tried to open this blog. Yikes. Well, here I am trying again, and this time, I'm expecting it to work.
It's not that I've been lazy. On the contrary, I've just been so busy with the poker that even the poker blog has taken a back seat. It seems like every time I sat down to write a blog entry, some interesting poker action would come up and I would chase it down.
February was one of my best months of poker ever, and I enjoyed the victory by taking a trip to my home town in Michigan to clean my stuff out of my parents basement. While I was there I positively pillaged the local charity poker room (including joining and winning a massively over-raked tournament). The rake structure might be terrible, but Woody's Poker Room does put on a good tournament. State law mandates a whopping 20% of the prize pool go to charity, but at least the tournament organizer did all he could to take care of the players.
Then on top of that, I lucked into a pretty good score when bitcoins shot up in value and I was holding on to a small pile of them... luckily I dumped about 90% or so before the crash.
So.... yeah. Feeling like the year is off to a good start so far. I've been off the caffeine for about a week now and it's starting to feel like a good thing instead of slow torment.
Tomorrow, I'll be cracking open Julia Child's Mastering the Art of French Cooking to try my hand at some onion soup (on the quest for a low calorie lunch option that isn't salad). If it's not terrible, I'll post the results here.
On the blogging front, I have a strategy article coming out soon for Switch Poker, which I'll re-post here as well if I can.
Hijinks to follow.
Did you know "hijinks" is a slang variant of the actual "high jinks?" My vocabulary is pretty good, and I had no idea. Huh. It seems wrong as two words. Can you have low jinks? medium jinks? eye level jinks?
