Dear diary

Why do the heating oil companies deliver their product at 3:30am, waking me up? I can hear their distinctive, noisy trucks criss-crossing the neighborhood, thus guaranteeing me to not fall back asleep. Well, that and the millions of thoughts running through my brain. Stupid, troubling thoughts.

Guess I’ll just stay up and watch the latest episode of Poker After Dark.

WPBT 2010

Well the weather outside is frightful…what do you expect for December in New York? Tomorrow I’ll be basking in the Las Vegas sunshine. Okay, not for too long because I’ll be spending most of my time at a poker table in a freezing cold casino.

The 2010 WPBT Winter Gathering kicks off tomorrow – I’m looking forward to hanging out with this fun group of folks, most of whom I haven’t seen in over a year or more. One of the traditions of the big tournament is to have a bounty to give to the person who busts you from the tournament. My goal on Saturday is to collect as many bounties as I can and not ever give mine away. But in case someone does bust me, here’s what they will get:


Each year my company does a Halloween promotion for our clients. This year we decided to make our own deck of cards with custom illustrations and a hand-crafted letterpressed box. I thought this would be an appropriate bounty item.


And of course, what bounty from me would be complete without something bacony?


And a nifty little “luck” sack to carry them in.

BBT5 Week 2

I missed out on the first BBT5 Sunday invitational but Al and Full Tilt Poker have graciously added me to list for the remaining five tournaments – thanks Al! I’m hoping to at a minimum, win some cash so I can keep playing in the Poker from the Rail tourney on Monday and the Mookie on Wednesday.

For full details on the tourney and prizes (how does over $50,000 in cash and WSOP seats courtesy of Full Tilt sound?), visit the Poker from the Rail site.

See you at the tables!

Dear diary

I wonder if I could make a lot of money being a poker consultant for the television studios. Obviously there’s a lot a poker being played in LA but it seems like every depiction of it on tv is done badly. Where are the poker consultants when they are filming these scenes? Bad bad bad!

Dear diary

I’m trying hard not to visit any of my friends’ blogs because I don’t want to find out who won the World Series of Poker before I watch the final table on Tuesday.

The temptation is sometimes too much. Must not click…
