Happy Halloween!!!

Another Tuesday though, but due to it being a "holiday" (tee hee) I will be skipping my square dancing lessons tonight.

Cherissa is finally old enough now to NOT want to go trick or treating, so we'll be passing out treats to any kids that come by the house. Due to our location, I really don't think we'll get too many visitors, but am prepared with bags of chips to hand out.

Does that make me a dud? Cherissa wanted candy to pass out, I thought chips were a great idea!! You can only have so much candy, right?? RIGHT??!!


On another note, I have been browsing around and found a new website called Prosper.com. It's basically a website that is geared towards angel investors, and people needing angel investors. It's apparantly been getting it's fair share of press releases, I simply found it through a google search for business loans.

Very interesting, I would check it out if you were on either end of the lending spectrum.


However, if you are on the lending end of the spectrum and would be interested in making a loan of $5,000 to $20,000, with 24% interest (Arizona's interest rate cap), that would be paid off within 9 months, please email me at tanya@pecksmedicalbilling.com

I am currently looking for $20,000 in funds, but would rather not discuss the reasons on my blog, on any forums, etc. Needless to say, it is NOT poker related and I would have no problem explaining it all in email to people I know that are truly interested in hearing more about this.

4 people @ $5,000 each would meet my requirement, and that would be an easy $1,200 profit. It would be a risk, but I do believe I am very risk worthy.


Please notice that I still have links up to ACR on the left hand side of my blog, this means it is still "OK" to play on ACR, no matter what OnGame Network states. I have played there myself in the past week for a little bit, there are no worries with depositing or withdrawing. I can vouch for this site due to my relations with the owner.


End of month is upon me once again, DAMN, those months go by fast!! So I'll be busy over the next week getting all my clients closed and meeting with them, etc. I can't belive how fast the months go by, it totally feels like I was just doing end of month a week ago!!


I was suppose to leave for St. Maartens on Friday. Sniff. Sniff. I'm so bummed that I can't go, but I know it's for the best! Business will prevail instead and I can always go to the next WPS event!!

So that's it for now, have a safe Halloween night!

Quick Post

OK, I know I haven't blogged in a bit but I have something going on here at home that is BIG.

BIG news coming ahead!

Right now I'm simply trying to kill time while dinner is cooking so I thought I would post.

A few quick updates:

I am NOT going to St. Maartens for the World Poker Showdown 11/4-11/19. I am disappointed, VERY disappointed, that I'm not going but the reason why I'm NOT going is very, VERY good, and makes it worth missing St. Maartens. I'll just leave it at that.

I have not played a single hand of poker in probably 3 weeks due to the news that I'll be sharing soon.

Just so you don't think it's THAT exciting (to you, anyways) it has to do with opening a new business.

I'm an entrepeneur, always have been, just didn't know it until I opened my first busines, the medical billing service. Now, I'm branching out in other arenas, other business ventures, and I'm excited as hell.

Will post and keep you updated as soon as I can, but needless to say, when opening a new business, it's very time consuming and takes a lot of energy. This means that all the energy that I once put into poker is now going into this business so that I CAN put the energy again back into poker in a few months.

Time goes by so quickly, gotta grab onto every minute you have NOW, not later!!

For Poker



Tuesday, October 10, 2006

It's Tuesday!

That means it's time for Square Dancing lessons! I know, it's hilarious, but it's actually quite fun and it can be quite confusing as well. Makes you work your mind and your muscles at the same time, so killing two birds with one stone. Hey, at least it's exercise!!


Haven't been posting much lately, but that's because I haven't really had anything much to post about. I will give a little mini Vegas trip report from two weekends ago. I was a TOTAL. LUCK. BOX. I hit the Royal Flush while I was on the phone with Slim1Der from RGP, good for 4K, then I hit quads at least 10 times ($250 each), quad Aces with no kicker 4 times, and quad aces with kicker 3 times. There was one session I had at the Crazy 4 Card Poker table game, I bought in for about $300 and left with $3800. Insane!!

So I splurged a little and bought my daughter a pair of designer, Dior, sunglasses for her birthday and I bought a Dior purse for myself. I have never, EVER, paid $600 for a purse in my life. However, it felt GOOD. Thank you RIO!!


My daughter's birthday was this past Friday, she had a mardi gras themed boy/girl party and I think it went over pretty well. At least that's what she and her friends said. FIVE hours long!! I was going crazy by the time it was over and retreated to my bedroom with my codeine cough syrup to relax the night and the next day away while she had two friends spend the night.

14 years old, going on 30!!


I leave in about 3 weeks for St. Maartens and the WPS, remember to check it out at www.WorldPokerShowdown.com, it's not to late to go! It's also not to late to WIN your way into the event, so play the satellites at ACR (which will still honour American's!!) USE MY LINK to the LEFT!!!


I have to go to Traffic Survival School this weekend. I've been putting it off for over 45 days, oopsies. 8 hours does not sound appealing to me at all, but what can I do? Apparantly when you speed and pay your hundreds of dollars in fines, that's not good enough. You have to go to a class too. Sigh.


The WCOOP was almost a complete bust for me. I didn't cash in a single event, although I did make it pretty far in a few of them. Although it was a bust for me, I did cash out quite good when I backed a fellow RGP'r (Thumbers/PokerChimp) in HORSE and she came in 4th place!!! You GO girl!!

I also made a blunder when I publicly announced that I would back Fellknight in the Razz Event, but then actually watched him play one day, and rescinded my offer. That was a blunder when he ended up in 5th place. Sigh. That would have been a 9K payday for me!! SHIT!! I hate when that happens!!


I'm not really worried about playing online anymore, I don't think it will be a problem for us common folks, Americans, sitting at home playing online. The problems though are going to be 1. No site will have direct satellites to American land based tournaments and 2. Firepay has backed out, I wonder if Neteller will? If they do, I have NO idea right now how I would deposit and withdraw funds. Neteller was so easy and fast, I hate the idea of having to go with mailing in checks for deposits, or waiting for a check for a withdrawal. Oh well, time will tell. I'm not panicking anymore though.

PokerStars said they are staying, as has FullTilt, ACR, and Absolute, so I should be fine with the choices of sites to play on.


The Ultimate Poker Challenge is back and this time it's being held at Binion's. They are having 3 tourneys a week (Sat, Sun, and Mon) for $300/$30 buy in and they're ALL being televised.

AbsolutePoker, which I don't care for too much but will give it a whirl, is holding satellites. The package is worth 3 tourneys and $1800 spending money. SWEET! That would be awesome to win, as I plan on heading to Vegas as often as I can to try out the UPC. Apparantly, it's running for a very, VERY long time.


That's it for now, sorry I don't update frequently. Work has been busy and I've been trying to stay sane. : )

Online Gambling Ban

As we've all heard by now, good old Frist has been able to get an online gambling ban piggybacked onto a Port Security/Safety bill and was passed by Congress. Bush still needs to sign it into law (DARE we HOPE he vetoes it???) but then once he does, what does it mean??

This is what it means to me:

1. The online sites that stop serving US based customers will take a huge hit while other sites will gain those players, as US players (for the majority) will not quit playing online poker, IMO.

2. The only way I stop playing online poker is if I have no way to deposit or withdraw my money safely. I am going to watch carefully how Neteller handles this bill, and how my bank handles it. If I win money on a site, and get the money transferred to Neteller, but then can't get the money transferred from Neteller to my banking account, what's the point of winning money?

3. From what I've read I feel this law will not punish online players individually, but rather online site owners, representatives, employees, etc.

4. This law will affect the outcome of future live events, in terms of number of players showing up to play. Let's face it, it would be quite possible to get a sting operation going at next year's WSOP and have the US Marshalls come in and do a sweeping arrest of every player that publicly won their seat on an online site. THIS worries me. May not happen, but it's POSSIBLE, IMO.

5. The fact that this bill even passed saddens me. To think that our representatives, our government is now going to protect me from me, is just not right and it's not fair. The idea that they can tell me what I can or cannot do with my income, in my house, is just downright scary. What's next?? Big Brother, Big Brother.

That's pretty much all I have to say about this. It's been talked about to death on the online poker forums, but one point of view I would like to share is Nolan Dalla's. http://www.pocketfives.com/89BA2E32-D8BA-42D0-AC82-29D6226B40B6.aspx
