Holy Rollers

For nearly a decade, I made my entire income from card counting at blackjack.

I just got done reading Nathan BlackRain79 Williams’ new eBook, “Crushing the Microstakes” and thought I would do a quick post to let people know about it.

Seeing as how away from the office I normally just wear t-shirts or polo shirts, it might come as a surprise that I do have a decent collection of dress shirts. Most I had custom tailored in Thailand and just a little less than half I had made with French cuffs. So when Noah, from […]

Review: The Mental Game of Poker

Barry Carter was kind enough to send me over a copy of the book he and Jared Tendler wrote, The Mental Game of Poker. I’m not a huge fan of poker psychology books mostly because their best advice is, “don’t go on tilt.” Geez, thanks. One exception to that general dislike of poker psychology was […]
