I haven’t posted anything to this blog in over two weeks for a simple reason: this is supposed to be a blog about poker, and I just finished a long poker hiatus.
During my layoff I was completely obsessed with the start of the NFL football season. Over the last two weeks, I spent an unnatural percentage of my waking hours studying team and player projections for 2007. I then made a series of proposition bets based on those projections. I can’t help but view the football season as a big challenge. I love the game and know that I will spend much of the next five months watching it, and my instinct is to try to turn it into a moneymaking venture.
I am now in Atlantic City to play in the Borgata Open. As I’ve mentioned before, I never ever win jack shit at Borgata, so I’m hopeful but not exactly happy to be here. This trip is off to a predictable start: true to form, I didn’t last two levels in today’s $500 event.
I’ll get you yet, Borgata!
