He really deserves to win out of the rest in my opinion. The guy is a constant grinder and scoring that final table and hopefully winning (I'm rooting for him!) will just add to how many guys from the "Miami Crew" (Mizrachi brothers, etc.) are successful.
I wish him the best of luck!
I finally opened my store on my Web site, so you can now purchase an autographed copy of my Playboy magazine from May '08.
We will be adding many cool things to the store as well. I'm working closely with some of my friends and affiliates to expand the store with all types of merchandise and not just autographed memorabilia. Be sure to pick up an autographed copy!
I'm also joining the PIC Club Poker Team. Before me, Amir Vahedi started as the team leader.
The basic idea is you purchase shares in the PIC Club and those shares are then disbursed to the poker site of your choosing.
I recommend reading the licensing about how the investments work and the difference between ePassporte type options. Nevertheless, the transactions are almost instant once your account is set up, which is faster than NETeller even was.
I have been playing a bit online to see how the games are on the Merge network and they are SO juicy. The only issue right now is that the highest games that spread on a regular basis are $5/$10 Limit, but I am hopeful that it will change.
If you play No-Limit cash games and sit-and-gos there are tons of options! I am confident that this network is going to take off!
So, I have been playing a bit of $5/$10 to familiarize myself with the software and waiting for the action to get bigger, but sometimes I find it more grueling than the $100/$200 games.
In higher-limit poker, it's a bit easier to put a TAG playing on a hand than in a $5/$10 game. I was sitting at a six-max table with two LAG players and one TAG. The TAG open-raised with K3o.
Regardless of how the hand went down, it's just incredible to see what hands some of these guys value.
It's all about adapting to limits and adjusting to the players. Fortunately, I've been doing well adjusting to the loose play. Flops are seen at about 88% per hour. Super juicy games!
I have a few more announcements that I'll save for a later blog! However, next week I will be going to San Francisco to hang out with a longtime friend for a few days.
I have been to San Jose, L.A. and San Diego. But I'm quite excited to check out the San Francisco scene. I hear it's really cool!
Hope you all had a wonderful week and I will catch up with some more news as soon as possible!
Be safe and play your best!
