Eli's in the house!

Finally picked up Eli couple of nights ago. It's hot here but I think he likes it better than being too cold. Weird. I can't stand the heat nowadays. On his first full day here yesterday, we had roti canai for breakfast, bah kut teh for lunch and we had a nice seafood dinner last night with a bunch of my high school friends at a seaside restaurant.

I'm finally done with rush poker for now. HEM came up with a HUD for rush and I think it's gonna ruin the game. I liked it because bad regs can't play that well without reads and now they're gonna have HUD for rush it's gonna kill it a little. I only managed to clear $200 out of the $500 bonus that was offered to me. Still not too bad, 5ptbb plus $200 bucks and I'm done with ftp once again.

Chinese new year is only days away. Can't wait. Can't wait til Shin and Joe get here too. Only 2 more weeks!

Rush poker, and I got visitors!!!

FTP decided to give me a $500 bonus to try out rush. Turned out it was a good move on their part. I just put some money there and started playing some rush. So far I kinda like it. It's the only way you can sit down and get 800 hands an hour right off the bat. No need to put yourself on wait list, look for juicy tables, wait for big blind etc. The only thing is I need to earn 10k ftp points before the 10th for the $500. Doesn't look like it's gonna happen. But I'll get at least part of it so it's all good.

Time goes by quick. Can't believe I'll have to go pick up Eli next Wednesday. And two weeks after that we'll go pick up Joe and Shin. The last trip I took with you guys were 4th of July 07 Myrtle Beach. Now the next trip I'll take with you guys will be to a nice island with lots of great beaches. Keep this theme going I'll probably meet you guys in the Bahamas next year.

All hell breaks loose

Well, seems like I haven't updated this blog in over 2 months. This is a much needed update in case if anyone still cares.

If you haven't heard, read these 2 threads on 2p2 and stox. You probably won't be able to watch the stox thread since it's in the private section but it's similar to the 2p2 thread.
The main character of this story is the guy I've been working with in the last 3 months. He had a whole 'crew' of players under him and I'm the luckiest of them all because I'm broke and have no money to be taken for. I paid the guy total of 600 bucks for coaching and that's it. Well, 3 months of not progressing hurts too, but not as bad as these guys. Well, it sucks to be naive and stupid. I fell for the dream and it hurt me. Nowhere near unrecoverable tho so it's all good. I actually learn some basic stuff and some not so good stuff and as a result, I'm a little lost with my game. I'll be fine after a little bit of tweaking. No big deal.
One good thing tho, I got a lot of good friends out of this and these are pretty cool guys. Some are good nl200 grinders so I should be able to learn a few things from them. We will move on from this bad experience and become better player and more importantly, better person because of this.

King of gambling!!

lol Joe Cada actually made it to the newspaper here in Malaysia. He's described as king of gambling. Not much is mentioned about the game of poker. It just come across as he won something, like a lotto or something.

That's the problem. Poker is skill based obviously but nobody knows that around here. That's why i hate it when the uncles and aunties ask me what I do now.

Today makes the 3rd week in a row that I play some golf on the weekend. There's a little 9 holes course near my house and I finally found someone who's willing to play golf in a 30'c weather. The only thing different today was I actually walked the 9 holes. Yeah, I walked. By 4th hole I started to regret that I haven't drafted a will and at one point I was actually dizzy and felt like I was about to pass out.

Don't even ask me what my score was. It wasn't pretty. Whatever I can do on a driving range all disappear when I'm on a course.

As far as poker is concerned, fuck poker, fuck weekend games, fuck the fish, nits and regs. Fuck them all. I fucking hate poker.

That's it.

A little update

It's been awhile since I last updated my blog. Not that many of you cares but I'm gonna go back to updating it a little more often.

October wasn't that nice. It was frustrating. Of course it's much better than September but I feel like I should have done better. I'm going thru some growing pain by trying a few different things while I'm working with my new coach. I'm confident this will help in the long run so I'm not worried too much about my result at the moment.

Life has been fine so far. I know some of you care about that. Still single but with this new commitment to more volume and extra time I have to spend on this game, it's gonna be real hard for me to know new girls. Not that I"m that awesome of a guy to begin with, so this will probably not gonna end well for me. I've been thinking about getting my own place, a one bedroom or a studio type place. With the new baby coming in my family it's probably a good idea to move away for now to make sure there's not much distraction for me in the next few months. We'll see.

I don't know if I'll have time to go back to what I used to do. With the daily report and funny hands etc. Hopefully I can do it, I know Tim really wants to read all that shit. Got some new pics too. I'll post them later.

That's it for now.
