  1. 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. Last year my local cardroom closed down, where I made a small profit constantly playing small stakes nlhe tournaments and it caused me to search for a new room.
