Right Decisions, Bad Timing
Posted at 04/14/2006 07:16:24 AM in Personal Rants by Sack.
Right Decisions, Bad Timing --- Poker is probably the only game in the world that you can make a total bonehead move and actually get rewarded for it. Sometimes youíre just running hot and sometimes youíre just plain lucky, but someone can make the worst move in history, and still has a chance to take your mone...

Happy New Year
Posted at 01/05/2006 06:26:21 PM in Personal Rants by Sack.
Happy New Year --- So itís that time once again. That thing that happens every 365 days or so in which we decide to make an attempt to shed a few of our imperfections, and set to improve upon ourselves as human beings. Somehow the word ďnewĒ being included in ďNew YearĒ implies an opportunity to ma...

Online Poker Is Rigged... P.S. Iím A Moron
Posted at 12/04/2005 05:43:58 PM in Personal Rants by Sack.
Online Poker Is Rigged... P.S. Iím A Moron --- This is what I like to call a frustration piece. That is where something finally gets on your nerves just enough that you have to vent it out. So in the fine words of Peter Griffin:

ďYou know what really grinds my gears?Ē All these people wasting valuable bits of cyber...

December Already?
Posted at 12/04/2005 12:31:31 PM in Personal Rants by Sack.
December Already? --- Iíve always been a superstitious person. I suppose as a baseball player it was always a natural thing for me. So over the course of my poker playing, I notice that generally when Iím running good and write something about it or tell someone how itís going, I tend to find a cold s...

Play The Game Or Go Away
Posted at 11/12/2005 07:01:01 AM in Personal Rants by Sack.
Play The Game Or Go Away --- I canít sit here and pretend to be some old timer whoís been around the block in the poker world for years and years. I canít say I sat down with the likes of a Johnny Moss back in the good olí days. I canít even say Iím some historian who can track the progress of poker through ...

The Sound of Silence
Posted at 10/23/2005 04:53:55 AM in Personal Rants by The Greedy Gecko.
The Sound of Silence --- You may be asking yourself what in the world a poker blog is doing titling a post after a Simon and Garfunkel tune Ė if you didnít catch the song reference, then you need to expand your musical horizons. Well, the purpose of this post is not really to talk much poker, but to mak...

Poker & Luck Ė Enough is Enough!!
Posted at 10/03/2005 09:41:55 AM in Personal Rants by The Greedy Gecko.
Poker & Luck Ė Enough is Enough!! --- Being such a hot topic nowadays, poker seems to regularly work its way into casual conversations in both social and professional situations. Those without experience in the poker world tend to have fairly similar questions/comments:

  • Donít you worry about losing? ...

  • Sack's Update
    Posted at 09/23/2005 03:45:48 PM in Personal Rants by Sack.
    Sack's Update --- So where oh where has our Sacky been? Itís usually a little scary when I drop out of site for a while, at least for those who know me. When Sack is not heard from usually itís time to give a quick call to hospitals, jails, and morgues. Besides that one little post peering into t...

    Life... What About It?
    Posted at 09/20/2005 02:40:43 AM in Personal Rants by Sack.
    Life... What About It? --- Through my life I guess Iíve found anything Iíve done to be another analogy to life itself in general. First came baseball, which dominated well over half of my life to this point. Soon after those days were over I became engrossed in pool and found all those same metaphors in th...

    screwsack.exe update
    Posted at 09/09/2005 12:47:57 AM in Personal Rants by Sack.
    screwsack.exe update --- Very few things in life should be feared. Maybe things like God, loneliness, staplers, stuff such as that. Iím proud enough (or naÔve enough) to say I have very few fears in life. Iíve put myself through enough hell the last few years that certain things that cause people to have...

    The Donks Win Ė I am Retiring from Limit Poker
    Posted at 09/05/2005 10:39:20 PM in Personal Rants by The Greedy Gecko.
    The Donks Win Ė I am Retiring from Limit Poker --- After consistent success at the no-limit tables, I decided to take a stab at limit poker about one month ago. While I have been profitable during my foray into the limit world, my level of profitability is in no way comparable to the success realized during my no-limit playing d...

    It's Gecko's Fault
    Posted at 08/22/2005 06:44:01 PM in Personal Rants by Sack.
    It's Gecko's Fault --- Of course after reading Mr. Gecko's rant about bad beats it was bound to come down upon me... and how!

    Yesterday I took a well deserved day off from both working as well as poker (well, I played an hour of poker, but thatís an off day for me). This afternoon after I g...

    Back to the Real Grind Ė Realityís Heavy Fist
    Posted at 07/09/2005 08:13:27 AM in Personal Rants by The Greedy Gecko.
    Back to the Real Grind Ė Realityís Heavy Fist --- Despite the ongoing mid-life crisis, I must return to my full-time occupation Ė CPA auditing for one of the Big 4 public accounting firms. While not a true ďmid-lifeĒ crisis, as I am only 25 and hope to live well beyond the age of 50, it certainly feels dramatic. I am returning...
