Quick Bio

After many years of going to school and saying no to drugs I graduated with a degree!  Little did I know it would lead me to being beaten into the ground at the hands of a soulless corporation.  After 3 years I quit to play poker professionally.  I've now been full-time over 7 years, yet revenge is still in the air.  It's crazy to look back and realize I started this blog as I was simply 'pumping myself up' to quit the real world and go full time.  Now I also do some writing for fun as a 'day job' (some freelance and paid, but an insignificant sum compared to 5/10 live) and airbnb my place when I don't feel like playing as much.

2017 Update and Giving Out Youtube Sessions (5/3/2017)

It's been MANY MOONS, but did want to put a quick update here.  Life has been absolutely insane during the past year.  Many battles were fought, nonsense went down, crazy relationships went off and on.  A spiritual awakening happened.  Legal issues came up. 

The egoic mind patterns took a massive hit and when I came out of it things were never really the same.  I still play poker for my income, but it's mostly hitting 2/5- 5/10 games live and occasionally mixing in some online play.

Speaking of which: I've decided to release some online sessions on youtube for free.  I record the screen while playing and talk at the same time.  So anyone who stumbles here for whatever reason I welcome you to check that out. 

The youtube channel is really just giving back with my poker knowledge as a gift of love to the world.  I want to focus on small buy in MTTs because this is a format that anyone can get into easily for side income; especially online in N.J

Last Night I did a 3 hours 'low buy in MTT (multi-table tournaments), max return on investment session.  Ended up taking a nice 1st place smash on a $9.50 buy in late reg turbo which bumped the profit to over +230 in 3 hours.  Sessions like these I like for giving out publicly.

Also one thing I defintely want to do is find a few poker blogs who are actually active and link up.  Probably would be a good idea at least 3 times per week.  Either way I hope everyone is fantastic and having a great 2017.  Peace and love to all.

Sunday MTT Journal Format (11/20/2016)

I've been unable to train my cat Nibbles to take his daily offering of Deli-Cat CLOSER to the outside storage closet so he knows where this secret lair is so he won't FREEZE in the winter. 

I only moved the food and drink outside to about 6 feet away, but cats are bizzare.  HE would rather not take the food then move 6 feet closer to eat.  I know this because I spotted him stalking in the woods; got his attention and showed the food.  He ain't dumb; HE just doesn't want to move 6 feet closer.

In honor of Nibbles let's do our best to live up to are human gifts and inch 6 feet closer to achieving the ideal poker player version of ourselves as we fight today...
