Time Gets Short

6 July 07

Sorry for the lack of posting. Things here have been busy. We are down to 7 physicians (we are supposed to have 19), and all of us are basically in work-go home-go back to work mode. Poker, golf and life have pretty much taken a back seat. I still play racquetball once a week, and I qualified for the tournament again. Unfortunately, I’m playing the #1 seed in the first round, and I’ve never beaten her.

That’s right. I got beat by a girl. You have a problem with that?

Actually, she won the whole thing last time, too. She’s the only woman in the league, and she never hits the ball hard. She just doesn’t make mistakes. I’m glad she’s not a poker player.

Congrats to Michael Craig for making two final tables at this year’s World Series of Poker. If that doesn’t sell your new poker strategy book, I don’t know what will. I know I want a copy. I’ll read it in Iraq. Anthony Holden gave Michael a shout over at Bigger Deal:

With James McManus and Peter Alson already outa here, this year’s contest among poker writers is so far a one-man show, thanks to the major achievement of my pal Michael Craig (The Professor, The Banker and the Suicide King) in making two final tables.

Day one of the Main Event starts today. Good luck to all of my friends who are playing. Make the best of that $10,000 investment!

Ha beat by a girl! No, I don't have a problem with that, I actually enjoy it very much. :) I am getting into some pretty decent shape here myself in the good ol' ROK. I am not even trying! I just walk up and down 5 flights of stairs 17 times a day because that is required to get around. The weight is just melting off and I still get to eat whatever I want! Whoo Hoo!
