If 2013 was a bad year, shoot the bastard out into space and forget it, build your new year starting now and focus on the way you want it to be. Short and to the point, happy new year to everyone. I’ll be back next year.
Christmas always marks the end of a year and the beginning of something new to me. I leave a lot of stones unturned throughout the year and when Christmas hits and I’ve not even bothered to break a fingernail trying to turn them over, the hell with it.
The blogger’s tournament was at Aria on Saturday. It was my first live tournament in a number of years and it made me very aware of how hard it is to sit for long periods of time at the poker table. My neck hurt, my shoulders weren’t very happy, and my legs were cramped from the foot rail that runs completely around the bottom of the table.

This weekend will find those of us that still blog about poker – and perhaps a few that don’t – heading for Sin City. Count me in that group. I’ve missed the last two years. This year my son will be here to sit the dog and the household while I’m out gallivanting around in Vegas.

Little Miss Time Management never seems to keep up with everything and the pages in Table Tango reflect that. Nothing has gone up since I ventured out with the statement that I was going in to watch the November Nine at the Rio. I did go. I didn’t stay long. Continue reading

My son Dan and I headed for Ash Meadows Preserve on Monday with the Point of Rocks as our destination — I was there with Riot in February of 2009. We were going to look at the blue pup fish that are an endangered species.
