Around the Poker Blogger World
I would write about my own poker play but when you final table a small 90-peep SNG only to get knocked out in 6th with 16,000 outs twice over and a guy calling you with 44 on a J23 board.. well.. poker is annoying. We had equal stacks and I had raised pre-flop. I had a flush, and two overs for draws.
I read Don's post about MTT play being losing play and his (I think he pulled this out of his ass) 95% of MTT players being losers. I am not sure if I agree with his assessment entirely but read the facts people: 95% OF ALL YOU FUCKERS OUT THERE ARE LOSING PLAYERS!!!!! Cash, MTTs, fuck you might as well try blackjack.. most people lose playing poker. It is a fact. I am entirely proud of my break even status as I can claim to not win or lose. I am mediocre to the core. Woo hoo! Actually honestly when I have my first 80K year I will be happy with my start at being a winning poker player. I read one blogger who summed it up nicely: MTTs are a nice cheap way to spend a bunch of enjoyable hours playing poker.
I was also reading Bill Rini posting about Phil Laak and while he takes a measured approach to the whole thing I think if Phil is innocent posts like this just serve to stoke the gossipy idiotic trial by public system we have going in America. I fully support Bill's right to post his thoughts and "research", and he does a nice job of tieing together a bunch of circumstantial items. I have no idea if Phil did this or not but this kind of speculation seems wrong to me. What do you think?
Anyhow.. Bill is not Fox News.. although I am sure they would do the same thing.. so keep on blogging. I may stop by the Hoy tonight depending on how the work schedule looks. Peace.
