As a lot of you know i played a ton of poker this weekend and i acutally did pretty well. On friday night i shipped a 2.25 mtt on FTP for 204 dollars and then on Sunday night i got 13th place in the midnight madness (11 mtt) on ftp for about 160 dollars. I took a sick beat in the MM in which i raises with pocket 10's and the donkey at the table shoved---I called and he showed ace 8 or ace 9 (cant remember) and caught trips with the kicker---was so sick because i would've been 2nd in chips with 13 left and the winner got almost 4000 dollars (2925.32 to be exact).

I also won a $15 token frenzy of 75 dollar tokens and won--I played the $75 KO with a 23k guarentee and oh boy, are the players just as bad in the $75 mtts as the 3.30 KO's--was absoloutly ridiculous. I got sucked out on with trips after i went all in with 10's on a flop of 2 4 8 and the guy calls with queen 8 and hits the 8 on the river----lost me a lot of chips and $15 for the KO.

Im pissed--what a cold deck in the 15 dollar sattie to the 109 mtt---so sick--i have kings and the guy has aces and the jack 10 donkey wins

I actually lost money overall on the weekend because i played probably 30 mtts on tilt including a rebuy tourney. I then today won 2 55 dollar HU matches, but then lost 2 22 dollar HU matches but was okay overall.

I am battling a bad sinus infection and i actually left school early so i could come home and play poker---bad thing im doing---leaving school to play poker but who cares--its my senior year and i have a 3.7 GPA with a couple AP classes.

I had an awesome weekend with my girlfriend as she spent the 3 day weekend at my house---I played poker a lot but we went out to dinner, went to a movie, went to a couple parties, and had some good times. I'm now looking forward to our next day off of school which i believe is Columbus day---weeeeee---ship the 3 day weekend.

I hope to have myself a big breakthrough soon, shipping a tourney for 1k or more so that I can get myself going. I am very proud of what I've accomplished so far though, especially in the month of august where i went in with 0 on FTP and 14.50 on stars and ended the month with 256.00 on FTP and 197.40 on stars---pretty good job done by me

Today, I bought half of Shimo's newest BAS and UFC bought the other half----49.50 from each of us---shimo better ship it

Well, I have been playing quite a bit of poker this week, mostly sngs until last night, and im about even--cant get myself going after the rut i hit last week. I bought 20 shares in the stakers club and i figured out i did get rolled by phyc for 19 bucks---other than that not much is going on. I am currently playing quite a few stakes and not doing that bad---gonna play the PAD event tonight--if anyone wants a 5 buck last longer bet im up for it (i won a $10 last longer bet with evechad last week--weee--easy 10 bucks)

So last night i played in a 3.30 rebuy sattie to the fifty fifty on FTP (55 mtt) and I ended up shipping the ticket only spending 6.60 bucks. I unregistered from the 50/50 and decided to play the daily doubles instead. I played very good in both of them and couldve folded to the money in B, but in both i lost with pocket aces--which was very sick.

I then played the 26 dollar 28k guarentee and was doing great in that until my pocket jacks got caught by aces and i was elminated.

I then was on tilt and played the 26 KO and i lost about 30 mins into that--was very steamy.

So, basically, ive lost a lot of money for myself, but my stakes have been going decently on pstars which is good.'

I had to write an essay tonight for my AP advanced topics class which is a field based science class. I had to write my paper on CWD (chronice wasting disease) and I feel that i did a pretty good job of doing it while 6 tabling sngs on pstars--- lol---it was 4 pages long and seemed to flow pretty well.

This week is homecoming at my school and i made it through the first part of the voting of Homecoming King----I am 1 of 4 guys that got the most votes out of all the seniors (in 2nd hour everyone was was handed a piece of paper and they wrote a name of a guy and a girl)--i have 380 kids in my class and i was 1st in voting with 94 votes----2nd place had 51 votes so im pretty sure i will be Homecoming King. Also, I got myself a nice car to be driven in to Homecoming---a person at the bank i work at owns a 1932 hotrod and her husband is going to take me and Olivia to dinner and then the dance and then back to my house where im hosting an after party. Going to have around 100 people partying at my house--will be crazy fun and a lot of work picking up in the morning.

Also this week is the Homecomecoming parade (thursday) and I will be driving the Senior float with my truck---that should be really fun. I just hope that I dont ruin the float driving in for the parade because it will be all decorated and at some point i wont feel like driving 15 miles per hour (all i can go to ensure that the stuff doesnt start flying off the float), so we might have to re-decorate quickly before the parade-but it will be fun nonetheless--and i get paid to do it from student council---i get paid 100 bucks for gas which is about what it will be because gas went way up here yesterday because of Hurricane Ike that hit yesterday.

This week as many of you know, was the First Homecoming at my school. You might say, "Wow, what school doesnt have Homecoming every year" but I go to a brand new school (2nd year), and last year we obviously could not have an official "Homecoming" since it was our first year, so it was called Thunderfest (I go to Belvidere North Blue Thunder---explains the name)

So, this year was great. I was very busy though all week and spent a lot of extra time at the school. I and 3 other guys spent 5 hours after school on Tuesday to go get pallets from a couple places nearby to build the fire. We used my truck and one of the other guy's dad's flatbed truck. Then, the next day we spent about 2 hours out there building the rest after we got a shipment of wood from a big trucking and farm firm (Gallano Trucking) and we finished up with the fire.

Then, on thursday was the Homecoming parade and I drove the senior float in the parade. We won the BEST FLOAT COMPETITON-----SHIP IT as we had an awesome float with some rocking music---had a giant amp and a couple of giant speakers and a generator in my truck to power it all...was a lot of fun. After that was the bonfire, but I didnt make it in time because I had to run the wagon way out to the guy we bought it from. By the time I got back to the school, the principal had sent everyone home because of all the shaving cream that was being sprayed on everyone, including himself, and it was getting on cars. I guess it was pretty crazy though as a bunch of kids were absoloutly hammered when they got their. Nonetheless, it was a very fun night.

Then, last night was our pep rally in the gym that took place from 12:30-3 when we get dismissed. It was very fun and the best part was probably the 15 minute speech that the coach gave. He is an attorney so he is a good speaker and he had the whole place shaking by the time that he was done talking. I went to the football game last night, and we dominated the game winning by a score of 28-6. We dominated even though the score didnt look like it--we had 484 yards of total offense and East only got 120 yards of offense.

Tonight is the Homecoming dance and that should be fun. Olivia and I are going in a huge group of 32 (we've all been friends forever) and we are going out to eat and then to the dance. The dance gets over at 11 and then we are going to an after party at one of our friends houses---should be ~80 people there--should be fun.

Now, regarding poker, I havent been running too good lately at all. I'm in the dimer competition and I have 2 scores so far, but Im looking to possibly play around 30-60 this weekend so I should be doing decent after that. Besides that, I'm grinding out a stake for Lord and hounds and currently I'm the massive chipleader in a 3.30 PLO double stack with 108 out of the original 170 are left. I have 24.9k chips and the next highest is 13.3k chips so hopefully I can ship the event.

Oh, I forgot to mention, I get my midterm report card next week---Im glad I still have straight A's even though I havent done jack shit this year in school----but my mom will be happy with my grades so I am pretty much guarenteed to be free to keep playing freerly as long as my grades stay up. Well, until next time, cya all on the felt and good luck everyone

But, school is going good....i had a field trip yesterday to go to a leadership conference and it was very fun and then i have a field trip tomorrow for my advanced topics class. Also, Olivia just had a huge fight with this one guy she has known like forever--if she were to have dumped me before, i would have always bet it would be to leave me for him, but she wont talk to him anymore now--and its been 2 weeks-----weeeeeeeeeee---ship it to me.

Other than that, i really dont have anything to talk about, so until next time, gl everyone at the tables

So Im dropping Spanish 5 because I am now failing the class and it is way over my head. It is the equivilant of a 2nd or 3rd year college spanish class and the whole class is conducted in Spanish and i really do not understand a lot of things that the teacher says. So, I am getting out of the class and either getting a study hall or not having a 7th hour---other than that though, school is going great. I have all A's in my other classes which is good and is helping me convince my Mom that I should be able to go to school and play poker at night.

I am running for DECA State President of Illinois on Wednesday, and Redkwatson is one of the voting delegates. Let me explain how the whole thing works. I have to have been a chapter president (at my school) which I was last year and this year at my school. Red is the Vice President by the way. So, I applied for it, and on Wednesday, I have to take a written test that is around 100 questions, fill in the blank syle that is questions concerning Nat'l Officers, state advisory board, deca general info, and basic marketing and business concepts. The next step is where I have to do an interview with a panel of state advisory board members. If I do good enough to make it through all of that, I make a speech to all the voting delegates on why I want to be the State Presidident. Then, I will find out if I am the state president or a vice president via the ole democratic voting system. This should be a fun day especially if i ship it.

Concerning poker, I have not been running the best as of late. I absoloutly blew it in the sng championship-- i was in the top 5 after 7 games, and then it pretty much went downhill after that. I did ship 2 out of 2 1.75 18 mans that i played which was nice. But, I played pretty much bad besides that on pstars.

Until next time, gl everyone and hopefully i can play surfers event 2 tomorrow

It has been a long time since i have updated this blog, but not much has been going on and I do not have very many numbers for pokers (like # of games played, total winnings, etc)

I ran for DECA state president, but I did not make it. I was really, really upset because our bus was an hour and a half late to the school that we were going to. Our bus went to the wrong campus somehow. So, when we finally got to the right school, I only got 15 minutes to do the 53 question fill in the blank test, and write out the DECA creed--the other 13 candidates got an hour and a half. I was so mad, but at least the guy who won, Joe, who goes to a school like an hour and 20 mins from where i live, is a good friend of mine as we roomed together at Nationals in Atlanta last year. He already said he would be working with me a lot to get stuff done. Now, considering my school chapter, Belvidere North High, which I am the president of, I am pretty much done with them. Yes RED, I AM DONE WITH DECA AT NORTH (GO TELL MRS. CAMPBELL PLZ--LOLZY). I only say that because Red is the vice president at my school. So, I am not going to any other traveling events i dont believe, and I do not care.

Our first quarter ends at school this coming Wednesday, and most of my grades are looking very good. I have 4 A's and 2 B's, but both B's are capable of being A's if I get all of my missing work in from missing 2 days last week.

I leave for Athens, Greece on November 6th and am really looking forward to it. It should be really fun, and it is an all expenses paid trip from my mom's work--its the whole company (people who earned the trips). Last year we went to Lisbon, Portugal and it was really fun and we went to a lot of really cool places such as one of the oldest winery's in Portugal and to a couple of Castle's. In Greece, I know that our hotel is right downtown in one of the town squares and I know that it is a 5 star hotel. I will definitly give an update about the trip once i get back.

Concerning poker, I have been running decent lately. I am currently running a stake for jappie for 1.75 18 mans---i have played 13 of 20 so far and the roll is 10.30 and I already sent the 8.75 for stakeback. I played a stake for Black Mamba last night and broke even for that--it was his first stake that he had given out. I also started a DoN grind for FF Barret and so far I am 1-1--i lost the 2nd on with ace queen to ace king----bad play by me imo.

On my own dime, I played about 4 different short sessions (50 hands or so) of Fixed Limit 5CD. The first 2 that i played were .25/.50 tables and I ended up around 5 dollars in the 2 sessions. Then, I stepped it up and played 2 sessions of .50/1 fixed limit 5CD. In the first, I sat with 10 bucks (always sit with 10 at those) and i left with 16.55 dollars. The 2nd session was late last night, and it went really good. I sat with 10 bucks and I left the table with 26.60 cents which was a good session. I won a big 9.50 pot with trip kings over the opponents trip jacks---I pushed out a dollar bet and he raised and I just smooth called--i could've gotten an extra 2 dollar out of the guy, but i played it safe.

I gave out a bunch of stakes this week and im going to highlight all of them right now.

1. Sportsfanatic---gave him a 1.20 9 man and he lost; also gave him 2.20 to grind out DoN's and he lost.
2. Ihaveafuglymullet----gave him 2.20 to grind out 1.10 DoN's and he sucked--lol
3. Veidtmeister---2.20 for DoN's and he returned like 3 dollars--not bad
4. Jappie007---gave him 2.20 for DoN's and he is still running
5. BDtheGreat---2.20 for DoN's and he is still running
6. Reginator--2.20 for DoN's and he is still running
7. <3nicehands---2.20 for DoN's and he is still playing them
8. Tearly----2.20 for DoN's and he is still playing
9. DarkAngelKnight---1.20 9 man and he lost
10.CM93---1.20 45 man and he lost
11.Scellis81--1.75 18 man and he shipped it for 10.80
12.Scellis81--3.50 18 mans (2 of them) and he cashed for around 6 bucks.
13.Scellis81--3.50 18 mans (2 of them) and he shipped one of them for 10.80 bucks
14.Sportsfanatic---2.75 5k---busted close to the money
15.Giving a new stake to Scellis81 for more 1.75 18 mans

The first person to make a thread in the beach, with a title of "All Hail the Big Hozer" will recieve a stake for their choice of 1 of the following----4.40 180 man, 2.20 180 man (if you like turbo), 2 x 1.75 18 mans, 3 x 1.20 9 mans

The first quarter of school ended for me and I think I did pretty well. Actually, I know i got at least a 3.3 GPA for the quarter but i really dont give a fuc* right now-im working at the branch of the alpine bank that i hate working at, and it really angers me anytime im working here.

Since my last post, i have been pretty busy with poker. I won the surfers HU championship on Saturday for a nice cash of 32 bucks from the 2.20 buyin. Josh and I had a good HU match in the end that lasted ~30 minutes or so.

I created my first BAS which was based on 5CD MTT"s and SNG's and so far, it has not gone the greatest. I played 1 5.50 mtt and i busted 72nd in it (24 got paid) and i have played 4 3.40 sngs. Actually, the 4th won which i won for 19.50 is a 5.50 but i payed the 2.10 off my own roll just to get the BAS going.

I have also been busy playing stakes. I have a DoN stake out for Barret where i started with 5.50 and i started off 1-4 at the 1.10 lvl, and then i played a 5.20 off my own roll and i won it--and i kept on winning. At this point my record is 10-1 in the 5.20's and the roll is currently at 50.40

I played a 5CD cash stake for Frogman starting with 10.00 to play .25/.50 FL 5CD. I dominated this stake and I ended it at Frogman's request with a roll of 57.25 after playing 3 sessions only. He said that he will give me another 5Cd cash grind to play in a while starting at $50.

I just got a stake from Nighttrain last night to play 5CD cash games. I am starting with 50 bucks to play .50/1 FL 5CD and I will play the roll up to 100 bucks and then send 50 back and grind it back up. ONce i reach 150 bucks, i move up to 1/2 5CD and keep playing until either of us end it, or the roll reaches ~300-350 bucks which then i probably would move up to 2/4 FL 5CD. This is more of a long term stake and i will try to update my progress on it whenever i post in my blog.

I also got a stake from Rummy today while i was at school. It is for a 4.40 180 man and if i dont make the money for him in the first one that he sent money for, then im running another one for him off my own roll. HOpefully i play good like the one i shipped for Barret 2 weeks ago

I also got my money back from investing in NT's 45 man BAS--i invested 26.08 bucks and got back over 34 bucks which was decent since he did not have very much time to play the stake at all. I look forward to investing a bunch more into him whenever he makes another BAS.

I also did some poker coaching for the first time last sunday night when i coahed Bluemoon in a 2.20 4 max 5x shootout. He played really good and i think that he learned some good strategy from me in these. He won his first 2 tables to get in the money and then lost HU in the 3rd round which was cool for me that he cashed--he got out around 13 bucks or so. This was a very fun experience and I think I am an above avg player in those 2.20 4 max 5x shootouts with some good advice

I am really looking forward to the WSOSP event tomorrow which is the 3.30 horse deepstack. It is going to take a long time probably with us starting with 2000 chips and the blind levels rotating at 30 minute intervals. I think I will have a good chance, especially if i get going good in the first hour playing holdem and omaha 8. I am hopefully going to play on Sunday as well, but i dont know if i will make it or not. Either way, it should be fun. Just as a side not, if you read this FF Barret or DrJ or PB or any other radio broadcaster, i am going to see about getting miked up so i can broadcast this week. I know that last week on the show when i won the HU event, BArret said he wanted me to get a mike so i could broadcast with him...that would be really cool and i think it would be a very entertaining show and i promise i will have no rants or anything about how bad i run

I also am looking forward to the next team event which sounds like is coming up soon. I suggested my idea in the thread of the poker forum and 2 of my main points are to get more players in each of the events and also to have an 8 game tourney---that would be awesome. I am hoping that i maybe have a chance to be a team captain if we have enough teams and i would really enjoy the chance of being a captain. I think I've done some good work since i joined here less than 4 months ago.

Talking about length of membership and such, I got my level 2 promotion yesterday which made me really excited. I have been trying to be a good, quality member making good/smart posts instead of being a jerk sometimes. FF Barret and I had a long talk on AIM about me trying to be a better member and i told him i was done being a jerk, and since then, i have not made one really rude or nasty post--i told him i could change, and i have which makes me feel good.

Talking about me now personally, i have been pretty busy in school and with working. I worked last night for 3 hours 30 mins after school, and im at this bullshit branch of the bank for another 3 hours 15 minutes. Then tomorrow i work from 2:30-7:15 when we close and then on Saturday I work from 7:15-12:15. Then, before the surfers event, i am probably going to go hang out with Olivia or something and then come back and dominate at some 5CD cash, some DoN's, and then ship the Surfers HOrse event

I leave for Athens, Greece on November 6th and will not return until November 11th. This is through the Foreign Exchange Student company that my mom works through, and it is the company "vacation" where all the top employees and some of the families get to go on the trip---it is an all expenses paid trip which is really cool. The first person to PM me an email with the location of where im going on November 6th will get a stake for a 4.40 180 man. We are staying at a 5 Star Hotel in one of Athen's squares downtown-its a very nice hotel for sure, but i will not have online capabilites so i wont be playing poker at all or be on surfers for that whole length of time.

Besides all of this though, I have been very busy with my parents trying to clean out our estate in Woodstock that my grandparents owned. They have died and we have decided to put it on the market, so we have spent many, many days there cleaning out the house and such. It has been a grueling task, and now the house is on the market for 375,000 bucks--its been appraised at 485,000, but with the econmoy down so much, we just want to get rid of the house.

Well, this was a very lenghty post indeed, but i think it is some good reading for people who are looking for a true "blog." There is a bonus stake opportunity for those of you who read through the whole blog and last time jr19 won it, so maybe this time, someone else will be the first to get it and will ship the bonus stake for me. I would like to wish all of you luck at the tables and i look forward to playing with a lot of you this weekend in the surfers events---gl me also running the rest of my BAS and my stakes that I have out for NT and FF BArret, oh, and i cannot forget, the semifinals of Red's dimer contest--still have 10 more to play out of 10 to start with

gl me in ^^^--lolzy

Alright guys, I am back from Athens, Greece and I will now be giving an update on how that trip went. I am not going to talk about poker at all since i have not played that much poker at all.

I went on the trip with the foreign exchange student company that my mother is a top officer for. It was an all expense paid trip with around 300 of the workers and family's there.

So I arrived in Athens at about 2 PM on Thursday and we got in and out of the airport very smoothly. We stayed in a Best Western hotel that was decent i guess-its listed as a 4 star hotel because it had like 4 restaurants, a pool, a bar, etc... but the rooms were not that great. I shared a room with my family's 2 foreign exchange students. After we got to the hotel we went walking down to the Plaka which was full of little shops and restaurants just to look around. There was a ton of crazy traffic and a lot of people on motorbikes that just drove insane. We also noticed that all of the business working women wore really short skirts and a lot had some crazy heels on. Thursday night we had our opening dinner and i saw a lot of people that i remembered from last year including the Hughes family from Texas. Their 16 year old daughter is friggin hot as hell and her and i and her 22 year old brother just continued on from last year.

The next day we did some tours and ended up going to the Acropolis which has the Parthenon all the way at the top. That was realy fun to see since it is so old. We then went to Hard Rock Cafe that night and then to this T-Shirt shop (dirty shirts) and i got a shirt that says "The MAN" with an arrow to my face, and "The LEGEND" pointing to my package

That night is when i got some action from Kristin, the 16 year old blondie girl from Texas--pretty much, just gg me

Then the next day we visited the ancient city of Corinth and was there for most of the day and then hit up some more little shops--i got a brand new golden watch for 50 euro at a shop--good deal.

The next day we went to the island of Agina which is on the Aegean sea---that was really fun. We went to a restaurante where i had the best pizza i have ever eaten in my life and also at the marina, all the boats were tied down and i cut the ropes on a nice little craft and watched it sail away on its own-im such a dick--hahaha

Then that night we had the farewell dinner and i got pretty drunk off of 8 glasses of wine and all i remember is going to Kristin's room--im guessing we had sex, but i dont know for sure---lol.

That was pretty much it---was a very fun trip indeed and ill try to get some pics up later

I havent updated this blog in a while because i was kind of upset last month at who got the monthly prizes for best blogs. Red put just his stakes results and nothing else and sports talked about his personal life and not much of anything else. I spent a ton of time last month on my blog and had a couple of very long posts. I covered what both of them talk about in their blogs, and yet i did not win part of the prize. So I have not really felt the necessity of making updates on my blog. I talk to people on here all the time at tables or aim, etc....so i do not need to say it 2 times. But today ill give you guys a small update I guess on what is going on in my life.

After getting home from greece, I have been playing a lot of poker and my mom seems to be giving up on getting me to stop playing poker. I all A's and 1 B 1st quarter in school and i dont ever bring books home, but she cannot complain about my grades at all. So I have been playing a lot.

I shipped the 5.50 HU MTT on FTP a few weeks ago for frogman for over 230 bucks so i regained an FTP roll for the first time since i took out my 300 bucks from there. I now have around 40 bucks on there after staking out over 40 bucks and getting rolled by rich senior. I made the money in the $11 30k yesterday for 26 bucks, and i played like crap.

I am currently running a BAS for $12 5CD sngs and it has not started that great--i did just get a 2nd place so the roll is probably at around 60 or so i belive--i hope i start running better.

I am really looking forward to the Christmas Party on here...it should be really fun.

So, other than all of this, im looking forward to Thanksgiving on Thursday and this sunday because i think i will be part of Matt's conference/sweat session...i will be playing in the Turbo Takedown and Red and I will be working on our project for advanced topics that will be due on December 1st.

Until next time, see ya all at the tables and run like leafs last night (2700 cash)

So, as most of you guys know, I went to Gambler's Anonymous tonight. But we will get to that later. I got a very good award today at school as I was 1 of 24 students in my entire school to be named an Illinois State Scholar. To qualify for this, I had to be in the top 75% of my class, and have an ACT score in the top 5% in the nation. That was awesome, and I was very excited after getting this news and my family was very happy also. Now, onto GA

This was absoloutly hilarious as I took my laptop with me and I ended up getting internet there. SO, I walk in, and I'm early, so I take a seat near the back of the room at 1 of the tables and I hook my laptop up and I get on surfers.

Then, after everyone got in, there was 23 people there and only 1 person under 20 there, we introduced ourselves. This in itself was very hilarious since I said, "I'm Josh and I am a 17 year old high school student who was just named an Illinois State Scholar today. I currently am up around 2000 dollars playing poker, but my mom has sent me here today because she thinks I play poker too much and she believes that she will prove a point to me by having me here tonight." That had a lot of people looking at me weird which was just fine to me since i just wanted to sit on my laptop.

After everyone introduced themselves, we talked about why we came which I had already answered. Most of the people mentioned that family members had pushed them to come to get them to give up their gambling. One of the guys who was middle aged said he had lost over 50,000 bucks gambling in the last 10 years, and i wanted to laugh at him, but I controlled myself.

After doing that, we filled out a sheet that had about 15 different questions about us and our gambling habits--it was very similar to the questions that have been discussed in the beach here. After that, I kind of quit paying attention since I was in the 2.20 quint and playing a cash game and texting people, but they were talking about things to do instead of gambling. Some of the people basically had no family, so they did not really know what to do in their spare time, so they gambled---i said to go looking for hookers (was my funny/stupid comment for the day) and everyone laughed.

Overall, I'm glad I do not have to go back there because it was super boring and I do not have problems like some of these people do with their money, but I guess it was not that bad either. I thought it was hilarious that I was playing poker while I was there, and that the mentor did not really seem to be interested in what I was doing on my laptop.

I hope this is a good read for ya...im going to go through the BAS investments I've made in the last 4 days

Lapchong's 400.00 all December action--I put 96.00 in and im pulling out my shares tomorrow for somewhere around $250.00

Tom Perez's $12 180 mans--20 of them---I got 20 shares for 48.00 bucks in that--it isnt sold out yet.

Nighttrain's 1,000 BAS--35 shares for 350 bucks--ive shipped him 120 of the 350 right now--the rest tomorrow

It's been a while since I've updated this, and I really have not done much besides poker and school in the last month or so. We are on Christmas Break now and we had a snow day on Friday which was supposed to be the last day of finals, but school was cancelled because we got 12 inches of snow. We then have had a really cold streak lately and the temperature was -47 with the wind chill yesterday. We are supposed to be getting another 12 inches of snow from midnight tonight untl Christmas Eve.

Now, onto poker. I think I have now realized that I do have a bit of a gambling problem because as a lot of you heard, I had to spend 1084 bucks on brakes for my car this past week. The first thing that I did was try to make all the money by playing a 1/2 NLHE cash game----I finished up over 180 bucks on the guy, but I did have the car payed for, but I got 2 outered on the river for a $$495 pot and then a $359 pot I lost with a straight to a flush he caught on the river.

Besides that, i've been playing a lot of MTT's trying to improve my game. Last night I got 8th in the 2.25 1r1a on FTP for around a $50 cash. I also won a $75 token in the $15 token frenzy so I will be playing the $75 KO at some point over Christmas Break. But, my biggest run has been on Pokerstars where in 2 days, i went really deep in 3/3 MTT's I played. ON Thursday I got 9th place in the 5.50 turbo for over 165 bucks---I could've folded to the top 5 as I came into the FT 2/9, but I wanted the win for 2900 bucks and it did not work out. The chip leader took me out 3 hands into the FT--if I win that hand, I have 70% of the chips on the table with 9 left and I probably make a $1k cash at least getting in the top 3. The next morning I played the 8.80 mixed holdem and got 5th place in that for something like 45 bucks...I played really well in that as it took over 4 hours to get 5th place. Then, later in the day, I was down to 1 BB ITM of the 8.80 turbo and I made a huge comeback and I ended up getting sucked out on with a river straight to get 13th place for 180 bucks--if i win that hand, IM a top 5 stack and 1st place got 3600 bucks.

Overall, I think I'm really improving my game and that is why I put up a BAS for the $88 4 max--Im getting coached by someone like Matt or chad if I do play it....there are 55 shares remaining to buy, so buy up.

I've been making lots of BAS investments including.....

2 shares @5 each in lord's BAS-he's down quite a bit
2 shares @ 7 each in lappy's #2 BAS--he's down quite a bit
35 shares @ 10 each in NT's 1k BAS---about even after being down a bunch
27 shares @ 1.10 each in NO's BAS--starts 2009
35 shares @ 0.83 each in jappie's BAS--run dimers so far
15 shares @ 1.48 each in STS's BAS--he's bubbled a few--blah
31 shares @2.40 each in TP BAS
80 shares @4.50 each (360.00) in KT's BAS

Christmas was pretty lame at my house. For the first year, we did not travel anywhere nor have anyone over at our house. IT was just my mom, dad, and our 2 foreign exchange students plus a 3rd foreign exchange student we hosted 2 years ago. I got a new Ipod-the Ipod Classic which is an awesome 120 gig Ipod. I also got a new winter coat, new dress shoes, a few more dress shirts and ties for the bank, and a new alarm clock. It was a pretty fun Christmas for only having us at our house. We also went and saw Marley and Me which was a really good movie.

Ive had to work almost every day this week and I'm working now as I write this. I need the money though after my car and truck that cost 1300 bucks, so its not so bad

At home, my mom saw my bank statement which had 2 $100 charges on it for poker and she went ballistic. Just to let you guys know, it is all my money and she is just on the account because I had to have a parent no my account since I was under 18 when I opened the account. She took away the computer and told me she is possibly admitting me to a hospital for treatment for my addiction. The bad thing is that if she sees the next statement, there is 1300 more coming out of my account going towards poker. There is also going to be a huge withdrawal coming up out of my poker account if my BAS investments pan out. She shouldnt see the statement though because when i came to work on wednesday, I changed my account so that my statement comes to the branch that I work at. I also have my account blocked from access because I am an employee (that is standard that none of us can see each others accounts) so if my mom came in to get a balance, she couldnt get it.

I have been playing some good poker lately including shipping a 2.25 on FTP and getting 4th in the the 5.50 triple shootout with replay for 165 bucks----a lot of surfers should watch this so they can critique my play since the replay will have the cards all showing. I also cashed 2/3 $26 MTTs i played on FTP 3 nights ago.

I put up a BAS to run the NIghlty 70 Grand which is a $55 MTT--I am thinking that since ive really been improving my MTT game, I should play a bigger buyin.

Now, where my real money is at..investements.

Last time=
2 shares @5 each in lord's BAS-he's down quite a bit
2 shares @ 7 each in lappy's #2 BAS--he's down quite a bit
35 shares @ 10 each in NT's 1k BAS---about even after being down a bunch
27 shares @ 1.10 each in NO's BAS--starts 2009
35 shares @ 0.83 each in jappie's BAS--run dimers so far
15 shares @ 1.48 each in STS's BAS--he's bubbled a few--blah
31 shares @2.40 each in TP BAS
80 shares @4.50 each (360.00) in KT's BAS


Update--

-Lord tripled his bankroll after finishing 4th in the midnight madness for over 1200 bucks and I got 20 bucks back

-lappy has lost about 50% of the roll--he'll make a comeback--2 shares at $7 each

-NT had a great night earlier this week by shiping the $22 Stud tourney for 350 bucks and gettting 2nd int he $11 6 max tourney---my shares are worth about double, which is ~700 bucks then.

-Jappie has run sour so far---bunch of tournies left---35 shares at 0.83 each

-STS finished a bit down and I got about 75% of my initial 22.20 investment back

-TP still hasnt run anymore--down a bit with quite a few left--74.40 in him for 31 shares

-$86 for 20 shares in lap's and NT's Sunday BAS

-$260 reserved in KT's BAS for 60 shares that he will get in a few days

-$100 for 10 shares in lord's BAS that he will get in a few days

-$500 for 50 shares in Luv's BAS pending his approval.

Until next time, good luck at the table and I hope I'm on the computer enought to play and see some good poker. I hope everyone had a good Christmas and enjoyed some quality time with their families
