Courtney Gee Says Goodbye 9-5, Hello Poker - Part 2
Courtney Gee is back with Part 2 of her introduction! Courtney has vowed to never work a 9-5 job again and she'll be blogging her poker progress right here. Read on as Courtney brings us up to speed on how she did at the tables in 2010. In my first post, I explained why I made it a goal to avoid working a 9 to 5 job. I quit my full-time job, got a part-time job writing for a website, and planned to play 25-30 hours of poker every week. I had been mostly a tournament player but I decided that I would try to earn my income through 6-max cash games.   In this post, I'll give a quick summary of my 2010.

ADZ124: Putting Daniel Negreanu on Notice
Sorry to those of you who expected another blog from me sooner. I've been busy this month at home catching up with family, after a long month in Vegas, which included all the highs and lows imaginable. The money I brought down with me began to fly in all directions mid trip, -50k in tournament buyins, -55k in baccarat, my first table-game loss ever (which I took in one night on weed brownies and too many shots of jager betting impulsively), -55k in shopping by the end of the trip and -30k on Stars and Full tilt playing some small cash sessions and whatnot. It was safe to say at this point, it was going to be very hard to make this trip profitable. I skipped the Indiana WPT and Bay 101 so my only way to really get even was the Wynn Classic, which I busted before the dinner break on day 1.

Poker on Crack - Full Tilt Intros Rush Poker

Poker on Crack - Full Tilt Intros Rush Poker
Full Tilt launched a new update today and with it, among other things, a new format called Rush Poker. Basically Rush Poker is poker for people with ADD. A hand of Rush Poker plays just like Texas Hold'em, however, as soon as you fold you're immediately moved to another table where another hand is being dealt. There is no waiting between hands. As soon as you fold, the hand is over for you and you're on to a new hand at a new table with new opponents. You may be UTG one hand and the button the very next. It's completely random. Your position changes, your opponents change, and your hand changes, instantly, every single time you fold. It's non-stop action.

Feels Good to be Supernova Again

Feels Good to be Supernova Again
In May of 2006, I became, somewhere in the neighborhood of, the 75th person to achieve Supernova status on Pokerstars. I had earned 100k vpps in that calendar year. In December of 2006, Pokerstars announced changes they were making to the VIP program. There would be a new level, Supernova Elite. You only had to earn a measly one million VPPs to achieve this status. On December 20th 2007, I became the sixteenth player to ever reach Supernova Elite on Pokerstars. In the last 11 remaining days of that year following right after me, 23 more players reached SE. It was harder back then to get Supernova Elite - not only was the VPP accumulation scale different, the maximum cash tables you could play at once was only 12 for the first 8 or so months of 2007. I decided in 2008 I was going to try and maintain my Supernova Elite status for as long as I could, but not try to get it again. I was burnt out from playing the all-day, all-night sessions and just the grind of it all.

Tilt Control
By Ben Roberts -- About two years ago, I wrote On Cavemen and Poker Players, in which I talked about the importance of learning to control your emotions at the poker table. Since then, I've had time to further refine my views on this topic, especially when it comes to the concept of tilt.
