  1. How the Colorado Rockies almost cost me over $1,000,000 in the year 2000

    The date was July 24, 2000.

    The Los Angeles Dodgers were facing the Colorado Rockies, in what seemed to be a routine mid-summer game. However, Gary Sheffield was having a night that was anything but routine.

  2. 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.

  5. Waiting for the next BOOM

    All I hear about these days is how hard poker is to beat and how in the early days a mediocre poker player could make a healthy living off the game, because the opposition was so weak. This frustrates me because I feel like I missed my chance to capitalize on the online poker boom, I feel like my game and bankroll is at a level where if I had the opportunity, I could succeed at online poker if the games were really that juicy.
