I Play Heads-Up for Rolls

Isildur1 has now officially become a pop icon. Fredrik Thomson, Sohello Shah, and Joacim Gustavsson have collaborated together to create a song for the mad Swede. Yes, you heard that right, a song. While the song isn't as catchy as "Playing Poker for a Living" or "All-in", it is still funny as hell.

It has been a very busy week and is promising to be a busy weekend.    My wife and two wonderful sons will be leaving me to visit her family in Australia on Tuesday morning, so I have been spending all the time I can with them and getting very little else done (hence no posts this week).    But with them gone for 7 weeks I will have a plethora of time on my hands.   What ever shall I do? Well first off I will be able to work alot.

The last week or so, I have been having a really up and down week. I decided to start playing more PLO cash games as it is one game that I have very little cash game experience. I have been told from my play in tournaments that my style is "too tight and predictable. " At the same time, the only two PLO tourneys I have ever played in have resulted in a 8th place finish and a win.

As many of you have already heard, Full Tilt Poker has become the online poker whipping boy lately. First, a federal grand jury is set to prosecute Full Tilt on money laundering charges. They are also going after Howard Lederer, Chris Ferguson, and several others. Kentucky has also filed their own complaint, but they have specifically stated that they are going to sue and attempt to recover the money lost by players from March 25, 2005 and September 25, 2009.

Making Money from Rakeback - Fact or Fiction?

You hear it all the time, online grinders claiming that they make most of their money from rakeback. I’m sorry but that’s just upside-down. Rakeback means that you get back a piece of the money you’ve paid to the poker room. How could you make money by first paying money and then getting part of it back? It doesn’t make sense.
