Bahamas Bound/Year End Comments

My first major poker foray of 2007 starts tomorrow, when I fly to Atlantis in the Bahamas for the 2007 Pokerstars Carribean Adventure.  This is a WPT event.

It should be a lot of fun–the weather will be great, Janeen is coming–but there is a very good chance that I will miss my beloved New York Jets’ playoff game against the Patriots, which distresses me.  When I booked this trip I didn’t think the Jets had a snowball’s chance in hell of playing a game on wildcard weekend (and neither did anyone else).

I guess it’s one of the tradeoffs you have to make as a poker player? 

I begin play on Saturday, and the Jets’ game is Sunday, so I do know that it will soften the blow if I happen to bust out on Day 1 of the event.

______________________________

Also, now that I’ve completed a full year of professional poker, I want to officially say the following:

2006 was the most fulfilling, satisfying year of my adult life, and my career switch was a major reason for this.  I feel like I have accomplished a lot, and I also am very proud of myself for taking a calculated risk that paid off.

I want to thank everyone who has supported me throughout 2006.  I also want to send a special shout-out to Jon Marston, who first convinced me to write this blog, then got it off the ground, and today continues to help me with it. 

Happy New Year everyone.

  1. It was fun watching your success in 2006 – hope 2007 brings more of the same! No matter what– your “job” requires you to travel to the Bahamas to play in a WPT event. How awesome is that?
