House and Vegas/Canada Trip Booked

The house itself isn't the greatest, but it is comfortable and I am really happy with it. The only thing that sucks is that I am without reliable internet. Right now I am using an aircard, which is fine for searching the web, but for mass multi-tabling, it lags, I timeout, and start tilting. Hopefully the internet will be sorted in the next couple of days. 


I'm not the greatest photographer and don't know why the city looks so far away in photos, it actually looks a lot closer in person. 


In other news, I have booked my flights and hotel for Vegas. Biran and I will be staying at the Palms between the 4th and 14th of July. We got a sweet deal for a 'superior room'. It was $69 for weekdays and $129 for weekends. Could have gone with a 'deluxe room' for cheaper, but we will have Mr 4toedstatue staying with us for at least 5nights, so wanted a little more space and a nicer room. A lot of poker players took this deal including, Msusyr24, Game2eazy, and Look4Waldo, so it will be awesome meeting these degens in degencity. 

"Can't wait till we (get drunk,) lose steve, and have to look4waldo" - G2E

After Vegas, Biran and I are heading to BC, Cananda for my family reuinion, which is also very exciting. It's been around 4 years since I have been back, which is way too long.

Bring on July!!

Long time No Blog

Hey everyone,

It has been way too long since I updated my blog. I have failed to finish my China trip report and not sure if I will get around to it. sigh, I suck.

My poker volume has been okay, not bad, but not great. I really don't like talking about results because I try to not look at graphs/cashier and if I start posting my results everyday, it will surely affect my attitude and cause me to sweat every showdown. This is much harder said then done, but I try.

Damnit! I couln't resist. I knew I went on some crazy swings this month, but man, this game is crazy.

My biggest downswing, followed by one of my biggest heaters. Poker has become insane - 2012 must be real.

I have another prop bet with Look4waldo. It is very similar to the last one, but we have adjusted the point system:
- 1 pt per game
- 1 pt per $ profit
- 200 pts if 3 ships in a day
- 150 pts if 1.5k profit in a day
- 100 pts going from 9/9 to ship
- 100 pts for biggest HU comeback
- 25 pts for going into FT 1/9
- 25 pts for biggest laughable call while still being ahead vs xxxxxxx

The loser has to have an avatar similar to this:

My girlfriend and I, after looking for a house to rent for two months have finally landed a place. The rental market here in Auckland is absurd. Supply is not there and people are moving up from Christchurch as there houses are in ruins. Every house we went to would have 30 people looking at it and no one wanted a 21 year old equity analyst to stay in their house. However, Biran found a site that know one uses and there was a house advertised. Bingo.

I can't wait to get some photos on here to show you. The house itself isn't anything spectacular, but I dig it and the view.

until then,

Update and Props

The month of February was meh. I am currently looking for a place to rent, so things are a little unsettled and my volume hasn't been great. Hopefully I find a place, move in, and get settled quickly. The highlight of my month has to be Poacrr booming and singing two new MTT coaches, Crazyhorse76 and Sircrafty, as well as this. 

  -  Waldo and I had a prop bet, 1pt per game, 2pts per $ profit, loser had to have edward as an avatar. High stakes, and high variance. Unfortunately for Steve, he hit a 3k downswing and ended up losing. 

He's already getting abused in chat and i am sure it will make for some golden chat. 
Pujinator said, "dang waldo ur sexy"

Pujinator said, "whats ur sign hunny"
Pujinator said, "screw that how big are ya"
Look4Waldo said, "this will be a fun month"

  -  Kebziwi stated in a skype chat that he was going to try and go the rest of the year without shaving and I suggested a bet. I know Zeb is a pretty boy at heart and this will be very difficult for him. $450, no shaving, no trimming, 1 year. 
Have fun having a beard like this in the Whangamata summer.
