Back To Almost Back

Last week I won the Bodonkey and last night I finished 2nd. I came really close to taking it down, but was outplayed by StinkyBritches heads-up as he wielded a big stick with his big stack. A couple of times he shoved me off of mediocre hands that ended up being best. I had never played against him before, so I wasn't really sure what I was up against.

In doing a quick intertubes search this morning, I see he is part of team Bodog, or at the very least, was sponsored by them in playing the 2006 WSoP Main Event. Not sure if he was on the team since he won his seat through BoDog or if he really is one of the pros on their site. Regardless, he played well and deserved the win.

As for me, after nearly exhausting my Bodog bankroll, two strong showings back to back have strengthened the roll and hopefully put me closer to a chance at a WSoP seat through BoDog. I know I still have my work cut out for me, but I definitely feel better about my situation now.



I've started and stopped posts twice this week, but work and life have just taken over each time and I've bagged each post. Even right this moment I'm rushing to get a post up. At work, we just brought over a financial advisor team from another firm, so that is keeping me busy. They have nearly 1/2 billion in assets under management, so you can imagine the headache of trying to transfer all that over.

As for life, ChickJax continues to be down with the sickness and we are all just hoping for the day when she feels better. After lots of reviews, tests and bloodwork by the docs, they have found a very large cyst AND seperate tumor that are of concern. More tests are being done and we are waiting for word on some things, but we are just hoping for the best. It seems her immune system has been really weak lately, which makes it tough with all the bugs that are going around. Not sure if the tumors play a part, but we'll know more eventually. I just want my wife better as it is really tough to watch her go through all this feeling so bad every day.



I missed The Hoy this week and at the last minute chose to unregister from the Skillz game last night. I hope to play The Mook tonight, but I can't make any promises. If I'm there, I hope you'll join me. If I'm not, I hope you win it...

Until next time, may the felt be with you.
