The LockPoker Fiasco

I was late to the party on Merge. That is how I choose to phrase it anyhow. After Black Friday and the ensuing cluster fuck of not knowing what money we would be able to get off the sites, what money was lost forever and what our future as poker players would be, joining the largest U.S facing poker network was less appealing than sitting at a live poker table for 10+ hours/day.

It was early summer 2011 that we began paying attention to the success that our friend Rick was having at Merge, on BlackChipPoker playing our specialized games of fixed limit Holdem and Omaha SNG's we decided, we would give it a shot and hopefully be able to make some money.

Post "Black Friday" Update and where to go from here..

By now the whole poker world is aware of the events that took place April 15th, now being referred to as "Black Friday" there have been countless articles and reports on line.

Like most when I first heard of the indictments and subsequent seizures I was in a bit of a panic, let me re-phrase that.. "I freaked the fuck out". In the days that followed it was a scramble to gather all information possible and make a game plan. The game plan has changed a number of times as new information comes to light.

Intuitive vs Math Is there a Difference?

Some consider themselves “feel players” drawing on  intuitive experience. Some will say they are “math players” having devoted a great deal of time learning and understanding the mathematical reason in a given situation.
If your a winning player or professional it’s most likely that you fall into both categories – or rather, you should!

Black Card Arrives..

So, I was very impressed first with the letter (an actual letter sent by mail) that FTP sent me about a month ago letting me know that I had qualified for their new reward program. Then FedEx rings my bell and delivers my black card, This was presented in a very nice presentation box and this thing is an actual steel card - pretty flippin awesome! not very convenient to carry in ones wallet but why would you anyway? :)

Back in the swing…. But down!

After taking the better part of August off I jumped back in and It has not been going well to say the least. I had got to the point where I expected bad things to happen every time i was involved in a large pot. I cannot say that I played my “A Game” but i also am confident that I played well through some terrible beats..
