Sunday, August 31st, 2008 | Poker Articles, Poker Projects | 3 Comments

Malta News

Friday, August 29th, 2008 | Poker and Life | No Comments

So a little update from Malta. As you may know we have committed ourselves to different projects by moving to Malta and starting a business. Until now it has resulted in PokerBankrollBlog, PokerBRB and WOSB. But we can’t keep working on those projects 24/7 so I have decided to socialise a bit more.

But Read more [...]

Workout disaster

Monday, August 25th, 2008 | Poker and Life | 2 Comments

Alas!! I discovered a giant moth lying in my protein powder tonight. I don’t know how long it’s been there and more importantly I don’t how how many moth larvae I might have consumed.

The whole experience has left me with a rather negative attitude towards the moth community.

I was just thinking of my worst poker memory from my own game and it just took me on a mental rollercoaster ride from one bad event to the next. Why did I take this mental ride – I don’t know – it’s not making any sense. It’s not like the ride is expected to lift my spirits – but actually it did - some of the moments were quite fun when I recall the memories. So which one was the worst? It’s not easy because you have to take many circumstances into considerations – the sum Read more [...]
