Last Saturday I decided that I would go play a live
tournament. Â I jumped in my car and 4 short hours later I
arrived at my destination. Â I played my way through some
mind numbing 2-4 (won 1 hand) and finally sat down to take
my shot. Â This was a $40 buy-in with 5000 in starting
Cereus Security's Epic Fail
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 playerâs 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
Running Bad in Las Vegas
To say that my first week in Vegas has been unforgettable is
a bit of an understatement. Iâll 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
A few weeks back, WSOP VP Ty Stewart made a bold prediction
that three women would win bracelets in open events. Â
With the recent success of women in major events, there is a
good chance that this could come to fruition. Â Mike
Matusow isnât so keen on the idea. Â Mike has made
the claim that if three women win bracelets, he will run
down the strip naked.
2010 WSOP Trip - Day 4 - Viva Las Vegas

2010 WSOP Trip - Day 3 - Devouring Helmuth
Day 3 of my trip was bluntly pretty dull. Â Started the
day in Oklahoma and drove to Texas. Â Basically, Texas is
pretty much open country outside of the city. Â Fields for
as far as the eye can see pretty much sums it pretty well.
2010 WSOP Trip - Day 2 - Chasing My Father's Past

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. Iâll 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. Â I have played in cash games and
tournaments. Â But I have seen a trend, at least in my
outcomes. Â I have been killing it in the single table
tourneys and doing not so well in the MTT.
