No, I'm not talking about Allen Iverson, I'm just talking about the answers to my questions yesterday. First, however, I want to thank everyone who left a comment yesterday or answered my questions on their own brog.

As I noted, the idea hit me because I couldn't think of anything else to write about, but when I started seeing broggers answer the questions on their brog it put a smile on my face. That was very cool of you guys to do that. If anything, I gave you something to write about eh?!

And now, my craptastic answers:

1. What is the biggest mistake people make at a NL table?

Calling off their money with mediocre hands.

2. What is the biggest mistake people make at a Limit table?


3. Why do you play poker?

It is one of the few hobbies that I enjoy in which I can make money. Plenty of hobbies end up costing money (including poker), but not many hobbies offer the chance to make money back.

Watching more nonsense on TV or reading.

Me likey the bluff win.

13. Why do you blog?

Now: The friendships I have made with people who share the same interest. Without the friendships I have made I would have been long gone.

14. Do you read blogs from an RSS reader like bloglines or do you visit each blog?

Mainly bloglines, though I regularly visit the actual sites to comment.

15. Would you rather play poker for a living than do what you currently do for a living?

Stars because they have the traffic, the software, the customer service, and the desire to constantly improve. Also, I can create private tournaments which is nice. Me likey Full Tilt too for the same reasons, though there traffic is not as huge as Stars.

21. What site do you dislike and why?

Party is on my shit list right now. They need to go ahead and give me $75 free so I can decide if I like them again or not.

Once again, thanks to everyone who answered the questions. I appreciate it.
