Helllooo? Is this thing on?

I think the doom of this blog is going to correspond with me having a good attitude about poker. I have been playing casually lately and enjoying the times I have played.. the bankroll goes up or down a little but I can not be bothered to check it out. I really have the perfect mental attitude for poker right now.

Which conversely means that the blog is probably pretty boring. No comments. I see you still peeking in with my stat counters and feed burners and crap like that I use to keep tabs on you.. but I know you want a full on raging rant and I just do not have one for you sorry.

I have been reading a bunch of the discussion on tight play on Blinders and Gnomes sites and I think tight is good for cash but sucks balls for MTT play. The madness and aggression and somewhat LAG style of play is what pays off in these things. You obviously have to be smart about it.. pushing your stack into someone who can not fold second pair is not going to get you far if your bluffing.. but sitting back waiting for Aces is only going to get you double your buyin if your lucky.. we all really want that top three spot. Nothing else matters. I keep mulling over what kinds of adjustments to make and have not come to a final conclusion but straight tight poker is meant for cash games where you have forever to make a hand.. MTT play is RIGHTFULLY meant for a little donking it up or in better terms a little gambling in the right spots.

Since everyone else is doing it I will make some comments on Michael Vick. I HIGHLY DOUBT he gets one second in jail. I am even willing to make prop bets here. I see him getting community service, making some ad's about how bad it is to kill animals but I really do not see him serving any time. Our country is based on rich people doing whatever they want. Agree? Disagree? I do think the Falcons dump him and some other team picks him up. I also would not be surprised to see the NFL suspend him for a year.

I am going to try and play an event tonight but I *may* have to work. We will see.. Working is so much more +EV than poker at least for me.. Peace.

If you add possible State charges, I'll put up $10 saying Vick will go to jail.

I am stating that he will not spend a single day in jail for anything.. he may get community service.. WORST CASE he gets home confinement but no jail for any of this.

$20 that he doesn't play a down in a regular season NFL game again in this decade (2010 is the beginning of next decade.)

I think he's going to jail. I HOPE he does. I hope they throw away the key - but that won't happen.

NO rants? That's okay, I think I took them over for you.

Also, put up some kitty pictures.
And while your at it, throw up a picture of the wifey.

I hear what you're saying about loosening up in tourneys, but the problem is that it only works as long as you have a stack. Once you're shortstacked, which happens in most tourneys even if you win, you often need to wait for a hand you can push with. I don't know. I tried to loosen up, but even one mistake could cost you your stack, and I've donked out of way too many tournaments like that. Also, I don't see many of the top tournament players throwing their money in. They're often cautious and conservative.
I also want to bet $20 that Vick goes to jail/prison.

You coming to Vegas? If so, I'll bet a night's bar tab that Vick spends time behind bars.

If not, I'll put $20 on it.

The feds aren't intersted in community service. There is zero percent chance Vick does no jail time. I don't know about playing in the NFL or not, but if you got any $$$ on Stars, I'll gladly do a $20 prop bet with you that the judge sentences him to jail.

I doubt he gets more than 18 months, and I doubt he serves more than 12, but he definitely gets sentenced to jail. Of course, it will be a country club and not federal pound you in the ass prison.

Oh, and waffles you should *really* go over to 2+2 OOT and wreak five minutes of havoc. ;-)
