  • Just another July Poker update 😉

    I had an all-day out-of-the-office meeting yesterday. When I got home, after catching up on emails, etc., I finally got to enter my nightly $22 Omaha Hi-Lo tourney. 95 entrants, top 10 paid. I was holding my own for a while, and then when there were 40 players left, ran into some bad […]

  • July Poker Interim Update

    Well, as expected, I’ve given back a bit of money so far (nothing too material). That said, I’ve played in a number of qualifiers, and I’m doing reasonably well. Not always making the next round, but mostly yes. For example, a month or two ago, I reported on playing in a free qualifier […]

  • July Poker begins with a Bang!

    Pretty good day at the poker machine today. 🙂 Started at noon. I entered a qualifier for $21.50 to win a seat for today’s $200k tourney. But, you ask, didn’t you already win a seat for that? Yes. If you already have a free seat, and earn another one, they simply give you […]

  • June 2007 Poker Summary

    Well, there have been quite a number of poker updates in June, so I’m thinking of not doing exactly the same type of statistical update I normally do at the end of a month. Since I doubt any of my readers really care (I usually do it for myself, to have an easy […]

  • Short June Poker Update

    Didn’t get to play for a week, because we were down at Zope, and then had a wedding over the weekend. Got back to NY yesterday, and got to play a little last night. Played in my usual $22 Omaha Hi-Lo tourney. 104 entrants, paid to 20th. I finished 21st. Bummer… This afternoon, […]

  • June Poker Roll Continues, with a Twist 🙂

    So, I last posted on June 4th, and things were going swimmingly. I played a bit on the 5th, 6th, 8th, 9th and 10th as well. On all but the 10th, I lost. This was predicted. I lost every single Omaha Hi-Lo game I entered on those days (not including the 10th). I […]

  • Change of plans today…

    On a nice day today, our power up at the house went out about at about 11:50am. If it was going to happen, the timing turned out to be not so bad. I was playing a little poker a little earlier, and was the short stack with 7 people left in a 1-table […]

  • June Poker Roll Continues 🙂

    OK, like I said, I can’t resist sharing while the good times are rolling. I started the day with a $1 (OK, those are really $1.10, but I’ve been rounding in my previous reports) 😉 Omaha Hi-Lo. I play those for fun, since even first place is under $100. Prizes are just as […]

  • More Early June Poker Success 🙂

    This one is very long, so if Poker stories aren’t of interest to you, quit now! 🙂 I can feel myself getting sucked in to more “frequent” poker updates, oh oh… I think it’s only because I’m in NY for a decent stretch, and finding a little more playing time than when we’re […]

  • Early June Poker Success 🙂

    OK, I really can’t wait until the end of the month to write this report. Not so much because I want to brag, but more because I have every expectation that I will lose it back, and the drama won’t be there when all is said and done. 😉 So, June has only […]
