My Tournament Poker Results
Above are links to five years
of my monthly journal. There are so many people who blog on and off about poker games, tournaments and playing online, but I've stuck
with it for five years. The 250,000 or so words I've written in my journal remind me of how much poker I've played! To be quite honest,
I am tired of talking about poker hands, but am still interested in blogging about the opportunities that poker has given me. I feel fortunate
that poker has allowed me to travel all over the world, make a great living, and make my own hours which has given me the chance to enjoy my life even more.
I did more traveling for tournaments, so I refocused my journal into more topic/article writing:
Another year has flown by. It is hard to believe that it was one year ago that I decided to take a break from my standard journal
writing and switch to covering major topics (like my tournament travels). It has been nice having the break, but I also miss writing
about some of my every day events. So in 2010, I plan to do a little of both. I will write more often, but I am not exactly sure if I
will be writing about specific hands and such since I have written more than my fair share of hand analysis. It will probably be more
about my personal life and traveling adventures.
Speaking of my traveling adventures, I hope that I am able to continue with them this year. PokerStars has been very generous by
giving me several all-inclusive trips for the past two years (although I have earned it by my referrals). I am not so sure if they are
going to continue when negotiating my next advertising contract. I have loved the fact that this business has allowed me to go to some
amazing places. New Zealand and Italy were certainly the highlights of this year, but every single trip has been a wonderful
experience. The one huge gripe I have about the tournament aspect is that all of the main events have been No Limit. Without a doubt,
I consider No Limit my weakest game and if there had been
HORSE, Omaha Hi-Low, or any other mixed
event for that matter, I am sure I would have been more successful on these trips. Fortunately, Stars is offering a couple mixed events at the
Pokerstars Caribbean Adventure
this year. If I am eliminated from the main event early, I will be playing in two of those events and hopefully I can final table something.
Here is my report from playing in the Pokerstars
LAPT Costa Rica event.
I went to the New Zealand stop on the Asian Pacific Poker Tour.

Here is a report on a tournament I won on the 20th, the
California State HORSE Poker Championship at the Commerce Casino.
And here is my article on playing the
European Poker Tour San Remo event, as well as my
traveling report from the rest of my trip.
I'm on my way to Italy for the San Remo stop on the European Poker Tour. I'm very excited since this is my first trip to Europe.
Besides the tournament I'll be traveling some too, and won't be home till May, so I won't be updating anything until then, but
when I get back I'll have a lot to write about.
More definitions added this month like ante and
active player. Next month will be much more
exciting as I will be going to Italy for my first European Poker Tour event. I've never been to Europe so I am pretty excited.
This month I'm working on building out my poker terms section so the definitions are as complete as can be found online. Some examples are
I played in the Pokerstars Caribbean Adventure

I also played the Vina del Mar - Chile stop on the
Latin American Poker Tour. So here is a report.
