I am back from France and will be working on getting all the pictures and video’s posted though it may take a while. I have not played poker in over two week so I am a little gun shy and may start back at the lower tables to get my feet wet. I did finish both volumes of Dan Harrington’s book on playing cash games. I think I picked up some important information but only time will tell.

Here is an interesting article about an internet website that was rigged.

I wanted to finish filling you in on my career before becoming a poker player. As I had mentioned, I quit my job as a software sales person to sail around the world, I was working on getting the boat ready to go (about 4 months) when I got a call from the President and Executive Vise President of the company I had worked for. They wanted me to come back as their Vice President of Sales. It was not an easy decision, but I said yes. Over a 12 year time frame, I worked as Vice President of Sales and then Executive Vice President. We grew the company from forty million in sales to just under one hundred million in sales. While I got some of the credit, I do not deserve any. I was very lucky and had a great team that made it all happen. I just happen to be in the right place at the right time. After 12 years in these roles, the company was sold and the new owners quickly fired me. I now had to look for a new job.

I had always wanted to cut hair so I tried that for a while, I think I did a great job, but I only had 3 customer one of which was me, and none of the customers paid me. So I had to give it up, though I do still cut hair as a hobby. From cutting hair I went to playing poker. And this is how I got to where I am.

I have attached some pictures and videos of my hair cutting days. In the video my one customer (Lee) trash talks my other customer (Gary) see if you pick it up. They both wanted to be exclusive customers.

I have been asked why I look so different in a lot of the pictures I post. That is all part of my poker play. Even though I play poker on-line and no one can see me, I change my look just in case I every start to play live poker, this way no one will know who I am.

P.S. The above picture is of my sail boat before I sold it.
