Random Thoughts

I hope every one had a great Christmas. Not much to post, so I decided I will just post some random thoughts of mine. There will be no rhyme or reason for these thoughts. This is just completely free flowing.

Eric Lindgrens book has not impressed me so far. I am only a third of the way through.(It also should come with a warning, if you are not strong in your fundamentals, this book could cause severe damage to your bank roll)

The Book Of Bluffs has impressed me. (It also has the most powerfull statement for an endorsement that any poker book could ever have. I am talking about Amarillo Slims's statement)

I hate reraises when I hold mid pairs.

Vince Van Patton makes the WPT show what it is. He so damn goofy that he makes me laugh.

I think Courtney Friel has her work cut for her. Shana Hiatt was a perfect fit for that role.

While reading players comments in the chat box while playing online, I wonder where politeness and respect have gone.

I think alot of the young, sun glass wearing, trying to look intimidating, uber aggresive male poker players are guys who failed to make their high school football team.

I think that if you think you would rather have suited connectors than pocket aces, I want you at my table.

I think most online poker rooms will go bust in the next couple of years and we will have ten major rooms and that will be it.

Does anyone read this blog?

Phil Ivey will be condsidered the best poker player that ever lived someday.

$919 is much better than $2.20.

I think that there are so many good poker blogs out there, that this one is like the minor leagues.

I think I will make the final table of a major tournament with in the next 5 years and that will be my retirement fund.

The Hammer has jumped the shark.

Omaha 8 is not the game to play when stoned.

Chris Ferguson, Paul Phillips and Andy Bloch are biting the hands that feed them.

I think at least 5 of the so called stars of today will never be seen at a final table again. I might list who I think they are later.

I think I am done for today. Thanks for playing.

    Unfortunately the hand doesn't feed us. The hand takes our money and has much competition that doesn't require us to give away our futures for nothing.

    Well, I do have to admit I am looking at it from the outside. But from what I have gathered, it is a standard agreement that does not interfere with any other endorsements or sponsorships.
    If i am wrong, then please let me know, this is just my take.
    So I assume you play in the major tourneys? Would love to hear more about that.
