A nice little start to the month!

   I obviously ran hot the first half of the session, winning all of the coinflips and some not-quite-coinflips :p. However, I continued stacking fools the second half of the session with actual...

Volume Prop: Week 1 update

I got off to a quick start this week, knowing that this challenge would be a lot more manageable and enjoyable if I got ahead of schedule early. I've been playing mostly 2/4-5/10 PLO on Stars, 9-12...

After last week's mediocre results, I realized that playing 12+ tables, while great for getting tons of hands in, is not so great for playing well and winning money. The games aren't exactly 2005...

Volume Prop: Week 3.3 update

Blech. I didn't play at all over the last weekend, so I had to put in some longer sessions this week to get back on track. I'd rather not have to put in an epic last-minute session to get there, and...

Another Volume prop bet!

If you recall, a few months back I made a bet with Vincent (soepgroente) that we'd each play 40k hands in a month. The end results were mixed, in that I lost a bit of money over the 40k hands but...
