On The Road Again

I am headed to Chicago tomorrow for a $3k at Horseshoe Hammond, followed immediately by the Bay 101 Shooting Star WPT in San Jose, CA.

I have to give another shout out to Chris Moore. After winning the $10k Heads Up at the LAPC, he went deep into the money in the main event, leading the pack for much of the way. He would likely have made the final table if he had managed to win either of two key coinflips down the stretch.
This guy is an uncanny gambler. He crushes everything he touches - sportsbetting, online cash games, online tournaments, live tournaments, heads up, everything. I don't know of anyone, not ANYONE, that makes deep runs in big buy-in events as consistently as Toph.

I am lucky to have friends like Toph who I can talk to about poker. Talking with him and MasterJ and some other guys I have become acutely aware of my weaknesses as a tournament player. I am excited to have the opportunity to attack these weaknesses without too much pressure - excited to have the opportunity to play for fun and perfection rather than money. I am perpetually excited about the next tournament, the next stop on the circuit.

Just remember this next time you think you are going to "retire" from poker.

As a long time reader, although I do not personally know you, I find satisfaction in your satisfaction in poker and in life.

Keep up the good work and keep the poker related posts coming!!

Its too bad "Chicago" actually means "Indiana." I won't drag your ass in to town for 8 dollar beers this time. Good luck.

If you had to rank all of your friends, who would be in your top 5? Would you need different categores? ie. live vs online or tournaments vs cash

Hi!

[url=http://www.internetmosque.net ] Compared Translations of the meaning of the Quran [/url]


How does someone become a Muslim?"

Simply by saying 'There is no god apart from God, and Muhammad is the Messenger of God.' By this declaration the believer announces his or her faith in all God's messengers, and the scriptures they brought.
