Pass The Sucrose

Pass The Sucrose

I have so much I want to write about the 2005 WSoP Main Event, but I'm not even sure where to start or if I'll ever really get it down in the blog. I really enjoyed watching this years event and think it will again leave a lasting mark on the pokersphere. After viewing the last few episodes, however, I have decided to change up my strategy in MTT play and work to be the underdog when I get all my chips in the middle. It seems when you're an underdog these days, you're a shoe in to win the pot. Some harsh beats and wild hands played out during those last days of poker play in the Main Event. I can't wait to slap a bad beat on some candy ass in the Main Event someday. I'm hoping 2006 I can yell, "Pass The Sucrose Beetches!"


As for Hachem's new home, PokerStars, this post is primarily about them. Since the OPBC they've really shown themselves to be the class act they really are. I've kept in contact with a few of their employees via email and they really are great guys. If you're reading this Ryan and Chris, thanks for all your help lately. Ryan was kind enough to place my latest game idea into the hands of their game developers without me ever asking. That was just plain cool of him. In addition, as most of you know, I was able to pick up a cool gift for having been one of their blogs of the day. As a result, the gray and black shirt on the far left is in the process of being shipped to me now. I can't wait to wear it and, when I go out on the town, have every Johnny Jopker out there ask me, "Do you play that online poker stuff?"

As you can see, I've added PokerStars to my affiliate links to the left. I try not to clog this blog with links and banners and, up until recently, only hade the PSO banner. However, I want to support poker sites that I believe in. I also want to drive business to poker sites I think are doing the right things. PokerStars has created new game options like the 18, 45, and 180 SNG. They offer 4 player HU matches and HU tourneys. They now offer deepstack MTT's. These are things that might not necessarily be the best option to increase their rake up-front, but they are listening to their clientelle and responding, which in the long run will drive business to their site through word of mouth. Kudos to you PokerStars.

I should mention I am now able to set up private tables at PokerStars so look for some ideas and planned tourneys from yours truly soon. I'm no WWdN or Saturday's With Pauly, but I'll try and put a few fun events out there on occasion. I have some ideas for fun blogger events and I'll let you know of them as they come to fruition. In the meantime, whenever we have another US vs UK sng, just let me know and I'll set it up.


DoubleAs offered a great reminder to us low limit players that we have the potential to grow our bankroll to new levels, but we must work hard at it. We will get out of it what we put into it. I've always respected his guidance and I think it is great that he is lighting the fire under our asses. In fact, I've decided to go back and read all of his 2004 posts during lunch over the next couple of days as a reminder how he got where he is today.


That's gonna have to do it for today.
