Life is strange, whens its changing, yes indeed

As mentioned in my first entry, my job was being eliminated. I also posted that I work for a good company. Well now I have been promoted to a regional position.

What did I change that is adding large percentages to my bankroll?

So I want to be a professional poker player, wonder how this is going to turn out?

7 days ago while chatting in the OTR room after the late Thursday night game the subject of cash games come up. A member shared with me a place that I could play locally and test my skills.

Embrace The Bad Beat??

I have read several books where they say, "Embrace The Bad Beat."  If you are getting bad beats this means you are getting your money in as a favorite.  The job of a poker player is to get your money in good and make your opponent make mistakes. So if you are getting bad beats you are doing your job and you shouldn't be upset.


I started a little monthly poker league in 2005.  There is a 24 player limit and we toss in $20.00 and we have had the same guys playing…
