Bad week

Last Saturday I decided that I would go play a live tournament.   I jumped in my car and 4 short hours later I arrived at my destination.   I played my way through some mind numbing 2-4 (won 1 hand) and finally sat down to take my shot.   This was a $40 buy-in with 5000 in starting chips.

Cereus Security's Epic Fail

Demotivator Epic Fail 369x300
Unless you have been under a rock for the last couple of weeks, you have heard about the Cereus security flaw. For those that have been under a rock, there was a flaw with the encryption that Cereus used that would allow someone to view another player’s hole cards over an unsecured wireless network. No instances of cheating have been discovered to date as a result and Cereus quickly changed their encryption over to a SSL based encryption. They are currently investigating to see if anyone used this flaw to exploit other players.

To say that my first week in Vegas has been unforgettable is a bit of an understatement. I’ll start with the gaming aspect. My first full day, I decided to play in cash games for the better part of the evening downtown. The table I sat down to had a lot of money on the table for the limits and a lot of bad players.

The Poker World Wants to See Mike Matusow Naked

Mike Naked 313x300
A few weeks back, WSOP VP Ty Stewart made a bold prediction that three women would win bracelets in open events.   With the recent success of women in major events, there is a good chance that this could come to fruition.   Mike Matusow isn’t so keen on the idea.   Mike has made the claim that if three women win bracelets, he will run down the strip naked.

2010 WSOP Trip - Day 3 - Devouring Helmuth

Hellmuth
Day 3 of my trip was bluntly pretty dull.   Started the day in Oklahoma and drove to Texas.   Basically, Texas is pretty much open country outside of the city.   Fields for as far as the eye can see pretty much sums it pretty well.

My 2010 WSOP Trip Begins

My cross country excursion to the 2010 World Series of Poker has begun. Headed out earlier in the evening and had to actually take a bit of a different route than normal. Due to the flooding in Tennessee, I cannot use 40 through the state so I ended up going I81 to I64. I’ll do some maneuvering to get back on I40 by Wednesday latest.

Stick to what you know

In the last month I have had the opportunity to play a lot of poker.   I have played in cash games and tournaments.   But I have seen a trend, at least in my outcomes.   I have been killing it in the single table tourneys and doing not so well in the MTT.
