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.

Villain in this case is a 7/5 nit. He tanked and tanked and tanked until the last possible second and called with 66. Weird. Few hands later he opened utg with Q5o or something like that. Wtf?

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.
