Random Thoughts

So I had uninstalled PartyPoker, and it's been off the desktop for awhile. Now, I'm thinking that enough time has past for the cash out curse to be over and so I have decided to download the program again, mostly in attempt to win that DAMN cruise.

Imagine my surprise when I went to their website and found that they now have STEPS for the PPM Cruise. OMG.

I am SOOOO excited!

As my long time readers know, I've had quite a bit of success with the STEPS and have eager to try to win my way onboard using this method. I shall let you know how the quest goes!


I have been home for almost a week now from my consulting job in Seattle, and have simply been trying to catch up on what I missed while I was gone. However, my manager, Linda, had done a fantastic job and coming home was nothing like coming home in the past. I am in the process of hiring 2-3 more employees, bringing my total up to 8-9 and have a plan/goal in mind as far as when I'll be able to take a step back and simply manage vs. actually doing "work". Very excited about this!!


So while home this week, I've worked during the day and played at night. I think it was Tuesday evening when I won the RGP 7 Card Stud H/L Challenge. That was pleasant...especially since I only started playing the game at this year's WSOP. I remember I was hanging out with Fellknight that day and we were both pretty sick of NLHE, so he tricked me into joining the 7 Card Stud H/L satellite. Gave me a few pointers, and I walked away chopping it! Apparanatly, I'm a natural when it comes to this game and I do enjoy a good NLHE break every once in a while.


Played the $50K guaranteed on FullTilt today (Saturday) and out of 270+ entrants, found myself at the same table as GambleAB, now known as Aaron Bartley. How lucky is that?? I don't know what it is about him that sets my teeth on edge, on RGP someone labeled it as "cockiness" and that this is a good attribute to have as a poker player. However, I simply see him as being arrogant. ONE final TV table and he acts like that? Although, truth be told I did NOT know him prior to, so he could have been that way before, who knows. I do know that I donked off my chips pretty damn easily in today's tournament, it was almost embarassing, but luckily, not to him!


We went shopping today for a new bed, to go along with the new bedroom set we've recently purchased that is being stored in our guest bedroom, and ended up buying a new sofa and armchair as well, loved them! Can't wait for them to be delivered. The new furniture will truly change the look of our home as we went funky and got a really nice cranberry/red color.


I was glad to hear that Hurricane Rita wasn't as bad as it could have been (or maybe was made out to be???). I have one question, which was sparked prior to Bill O'Reilly's Friday night show, but he talked about it a lot too. Why the HELL did the officials in Texas NOT open the freeway in both directions? It was stunning to see the gridlock and the stories were unbelievable too. One lady left her house at 3 am and by 10am, SEVEN hours later, she had moved about 11 miles. Unreal. I know it's hard to move 2 million people at once, so once again, why not open up both sides of the freeway??? As Bill O'Reilly stated, noone would tell him.


So, I plan on working this weekend, while playing of course, and can be found online at PS, PP or AIM. Have a great weeekend everyone!!

Hiya - just clicking on random poker blog links and came across yours. Too bad I didn't find you a few weeks earlier, I could have pointed you to all the hot spots up here in Seattle. A few Indian casinos with bigger games, and cardrooms around every corner with fishy 3/6 action!

Drop me a note next time you're in the area!

i was just looking back through a previous cardplayer and saw you standing in the background of one of the wsop pictures. Just wondered if you've seen it. I think it was probably the one with jennifer tilly on the cover.
