Stories from Paradise to the freezer

Greetings from chilly Windsor, Ontario where I've come after having spent several much warmer days down at the PCA. I've been playing a ton online lately, including mid-stakes hold'em cash games and a number of tournaments, too, and all of that has been going well for me so far here at the start of...more

Better living through juice

In between grinding online in Canada, juggling twelve NFL fantasy teams and spending time with my family in Michigan, I've been working hard to get into really good shape. Growing up, I played soccer and was always competitive, but when I started player poker full-time, I got lazy and became much le...more

Off the road, onto WCOOP

Even though I didn't win my second bracelet, I still had a really great World Series. I cashed three times and made two fourth-place finishes so I really can't complain. I had planned on getting in a lot more cash game sessions this year but that didn't end up happening. I got in two sessions at the...more

Six-max flashback

When I planned my World Series of Poker this year, I knew I wanted to play a lot more than I had in the past. I booked a suite at the Rio, which is extremely convenient when you're spending some late nights in the cash games. Before I won the Main Event in '09, I played a lot of cash games around Ve...more

Small edges

I've recently learned that if you want to run deep in the Sunday Million, you'd better play it from my condo. I took 13th place a little while back and over the course of that month, both guys I share the place with finished in the top 15! It's not even just the Million, everyone seems to be doing w...more

Part-time Canadian

Now that I'm a regular commuter between Michigan and Canada, I realized that I should have made this move a long time ago. First of all, it's not even a bad drive--it only takes about 45 minutes to get from my house to the border, and once I come out of the tunnel I'm less than a minute away from my...more

Canada, finally

After a long break from online poker, I'm finally getting back to the tables. I recently went up to Canada to look at some places so I can set up a second residence and get back on PokerStars. I haven't played online since Black Friday, and I'm really excited to get back to it. I actually don't live...more

Staying fresh after Black Friday

Before Black Friday, I used to play online poker all the time. Some weeks I'd play for 80 hours. I'd just wake up and play poker and that's really all I did. Then once Black Friday happened, I haven't played online since. It's a whole different life I've been living since Black Friday. Poker's one ...more

March madness

My March was pretty mad. It was crazy, and I just about wanted to punch Butler in the stomach for binking off the remainder of my NCAA bracket. But, it was a pretty fun month too. There is no greater sweat than the NCAA tournament (outside of poker), and speaking of sweat, I actually got to sweat fo...more

A new year, new resolutions

Man, time has really flown by since my last blog. I guess that makes sense. The holidays tend to fly by every year, and especially for me, as I had to do a whole bunch of Christmasses this year! But, I guess let's take it back to early to December. My Mom got out of the hospital in early December...more
