Justin Bieber Hates Online Poker

I'd love to make this an uber post, but the beer has hit and I'm tired.

I'd like to know, has anyone else all but abandoned online poker?

I mean, I play occasional, but not like I used to. It's not every. single. night for 2 or 3 hours.

Is this because of the UIGEA, or because I'm just a break even player?

I'd really like to hear the poker blogosphere's thoughts on this and who is playing more the past year and who is playing less.

Now here's a picture of Justin Bieber pressing his lame ass nose on a window:

Followed by a picture of Miranda Kerr topless. You're welcome.

Anna Benefit Tournament

This post was originally posted over at Poker From The Rail on Full Tilt Poker. Big thanks go to AlCantHang for making all of this happen. He is truly one of the good guys.

For Anna

So, there’s this really cool 7th grade kid that I know that goes to my kids school. Her name is Anna.

A year ago, she was busy being…well…a kid. She was on the junior high basketball team and on the track team. She was a good student and was full of life, laughter, and a ton of potential. She was very popular, but kind to everyone. My 8 year old daughter adored her.

Fast forward to today. She’s now lying in a bed at Children’s Hospital in Milwaukee, being fed from a tube.

What happened?

Anna was diagnosed with cardiomyopathy. It’s a terrible, debilitating disease that can be best described as this: her damaged heart does not effectively pump her blood anymore. She was recently transplanted with a temporary device to assist her heart pump blood.

Now, this is the part of this post where I’m supposed to make you cry. I’m supposed to wring enough tears from your eyes to get you open up your wallet and get you to sign up for the charity tournament I’ve set up to help Anna’s family raise money to help offset their mounting medical bills. I’m supposed to talk about how Anna is in constant, agonizing pain. How a week and a half ago she suffered a stroke that paralyzed the left half of her body. How she has been so weak that she can’t even feed herself, let alone try to stand up and take a step across her hospital room. How at age twelve, she’s endured more surgeries and medical procedures than most people will have to endure in a lifetime.

I could go into greater detail on all of the above, because it’s all horribly sad and all horribly true. But I won’t, because here’s the bottom line:

If Anna doesn’t find a new heart, she will die.

For someone so young and once so full of life to now be facing death is incomprehensible to me.

I look at my own kids differently now, knowing that I don’t know (and can’t control) what the future holds for them, and one day it could be one of them lying in a cold, sterile hospital bed praying for a heart to be donated in order to live. And that’s why I’m holding this tournament for Anna and her family.

I implore you to sign up for the “Anna Benefit Tournament” on March 15th at 22:00 ET. It’s a $5 + $5 tournament under the “Private” tab here on Full Tilt. Password is “ForAnna”. Every dollar of the “+5” will go directly to Anna and her family.

For more information, please visit Anna’s Caring Bridge page here:

Thanks for taking the time to read this, and hopefully I’ll see you at my table on Monday night.

Not Dead Yet

I've neglected this corner of the internet for far too long.

There are some things in the hopper that I'll reveal in the coming weeks.

Poker has been busting my balls lately (actually, drinking a 12 pack and playing Rush Poker has been busting my balls, but still...)

Until the next update, enjoy:

A HORSE Apiece

I probably should have saved the pic of Gisele on a horse for this post, but maybe Taylor Swift riding a fake horse will do.

So. yeah. Now I'm distracted. And YES, she's over 18 you pervs.

Where was I? Ah yes, poker or something.

The H.O.R.S.E. SnG experiment continues to go pretty well, pokery-wise. I have won a bunch more than I've lost, and am really getting tuned into the game.

My major downfall is still Omaha H/L. I think I know exactly what I'm doing, and then I get pummeled and ass kicked to the point of having an M of about -3.5.

But I always come back. Always. Last night, of the three HORSE SnGs I played I was down to about about 150 chips. I came back and won one and finished second in the other (don't ask about the third one).

Why? Because I am the best fucking Razz player ever. EVER.

OK, maybe not ever, but that and Stud H/L are my two money games. I can go from zero to hero in about 15 hands. No lie.

I also had the distinct pleasure of playing with (and felting!) BamBam. It was fun chatting with a fellow D-List blogger in the chat. It was even more fun busting him.

Good luck at the tables my friends, and may all your pots be fat and juicy like mine! LOLOL!!!
