CDK is living the dream!

Is there a proper wish for poker players? A break a leg kind of thing?

Pretend I said that.

My switch from Party Poker to Poker Stars gave me a temp boost (my game had been in the toilet)...but I'm back to lazy, no patience play and it shows.

You've got balls!

Best of luck.

I'm leaving A2K soon so I won't be able to follow your progress...but I suspect that if you ever get to the featured tables...somehow I will know it is you whatever name you play under.

Truly...best of luck.

Eee-yikes...

If following your bliss means this, then all I can say is I wish you loads of Aces and Kings, Craven.

Last night (my first poker night without a job) went well. I played 4 hours and made $400. I'm playing again today and going straight to the airport (to San Diego) so I may have a few down days (though I'll try to play some California casinos while I'm there).

Seriously, best of luck to you. Smile


No worries. Poker money is isolated from other money, if I use it I can't make more and the first part of being a winning poker player is keeping it separated.

Cause it's a sport! Seriously dude, I am pretty risk adverse when it comes to my future and my ability to support myself. I wouldn't be doing this if I thought it would be significantly dangerous to me.

I'd hate to see what you'd do if you weren't rick-averse!

Craven, I have heard -from a good, albeit subjective source- of your great capacity as a poker player.
I have seen that tiny squint-glow in the right eye, knowing exactly what is going on at the table. It makes the difference between the gambler and the pro. You have it.

All this said, I don't wish you luck. You don't need it. I fervently wish you not to have a bad luck streak.

"There are few things that are so unpardonably neglected in our country as poker. The upper class knows very little about it. Now and then you find ambassadors who have sort of a general knowledge of the game, but the ignorance of the people is fearful. Why, I have known clergymen, good men, kind-hearted, liberal, sincere, and all that, who did not know the meaning of a "flush." It is enough to make one ashamed of the species."
