  1. So I get Paid 80% of my Salary to do Nothing

    This is as much of an update to my working situation if anything: Currently I work for a company which supplies data to the betting industry. Since Corona has struck in this country we have been put on furlough which means we can't work and my employer will claim 80% of my salary back from the government which I will be paid until this lockdown / no work situation is ongoing.

    My last blog post on here was talking about how I had been fired from my previous employer, and reading back ...
  2. Putting in the WORK

    I cant wait for the WSOP…

    It’s something different to play bracelet events. The sound of the giant rooms filled with poker players from all around the world and there chatter.

  5. Online poker vs. My bankroll

    Online poker. Once a click of a mouse away for Americans, now just a distant memory. I used to play on Pokerstars, it was fun playing in my underwear. Now with the DOJ shutting down online poker in the USA except for a few states, players have to go to other means. Enter Bitcoin. Bitcoin is a peer-to-peer payment system and digital currency introduced as open source software in 2009 by pseudonymous developer Satoshi Nakamoto.
