  1. Learning PROCESS

    Tournament poker is the reason I got into the game. Flashback to 2003, I remember watching ESPN with fascination and diving head first into low-limit cash games and losing my ass. I played my cash game sessions the way I learned the game through final table highlights and all-in hands edited into neat little one hour episodes. Playing this way has cost me money over the years and itís a hard habit to break playing this way when Iím not entirely focused. Iíve almost completely phased out playing ...
  2. Change UP

    One thing Iíve realized about poker over these past 10 years is change is constant. You canít get comfortable because poker is constantly evolving and moving in different directions.

  5. Bitter SWEET

    Last weeks blog was all about running hot, this weeks is blog is similar but has a different tune. Overconfidence was my number one problem this week. Without a doubt I had some wicked bad beats (nothing new) but I seen myself constantly putting money in the pot in situations where airing to the side of caution was the optimal play. Lack of patience was my second problem, this week I found myself a couple times with a favorable chip stack only to give it up by getting myself in trouble by playing ...
