Random September Thoughts

In an effort to retain my membership in the poker blogging community (Vegas is looming after all), I thought I'd put up a couple random thoughts. So, in no particular order:

  • For the first time since I started playing poker seriously (and was I really ever serious? Discuss amongst yourselves), I'm positive for the year and it's September! Of course, there's always a chance I'll dump my profits before Vegas. My Vegas trips for the WPBT have always been profitable despite never having cashed in the tournament, so look out.
  • I'm also profitable online on both FT and PS, although my PS BR took a big hit. I may have been drinking at the time.
  • I played one session of live poker where I ran so hot people were bidding on my seat when I vacated it.
  • I've gotten many interesting hands before, but this one was especially interesting. I was two tabling LHE Rush poker on FT. Both held up.

  • I've lost over 10 pounds in the month of September. No, I didn't cut off a body part. I've basically eliminated carbs and I've been in the gym at least 4 times a week. I'm even thinking about doing a duathalon in a couple weeks.
  • The Wife just got back from a week in Texas. During that time, I actually cooked several meals for the family, and they were all well received.
  • My marinated salmon steak was especially good.
  • Now that she's back, I will go back to eating and washing dishes. Cooking while she's here is way too stressful.
  • I'll be in Vegas at the end of October for continuing medical education from the 27th to the 30th. Who will be entertaining me when I get out of my conference?
  • I took this picture on my last FOG drive (FOG = Ferrari Owner's Group). I'm no photographer, but I'm especially proud of how this one came out. The cloud reflections are very cool. If possible, look at it full size.

You may now resume your lives.

Rush Royal

After pissing away much of my BR multi-tabling Rush LHE, it was nice to luck into this. I was behind on the flop.

Edit: Needed a place for this pic. Has nothing to do with the post. If you happen to see it, leave me a comment. I doubt anyone will...

So, That Happened...

My plan is nearly complete (scroll down to The Italians).
Now I just need to drive to New York and find those nice folks who gave me this nickname.
