It's Time

It's always around this time of year that I start posting from this blog more often. Sadly, it has nothing to do with poker though.

Yes, it's Fantasy Football time.

This year, I'm in four leagues:

1. My standard $100 league that I've been in for several years now, and took first place in last year. You may or may not remember my weekly recaps from last year.

2. A free ESPN league that a former coworker runs. I don't care about this league & didn't make any changes to my lineup after the first game.

3. A Yahoo league with some poker friends from the area. I think I'm still in this, I haven't heard anything since last month.

4. Skidoo's Yahoo League. Schaubs pimped this one to me, and for any bloggers looking for a league to join, I thus pimp it to you. Check out Skidoo's post here for more information. I think we only have 5 right now, so we could definitely use some more players.

Honestly, I haven't done any preparation for any of my FF leagues this year. I'll probably sit down later this week and do some studying, so look for my FF strategy post next week.


On the poker front, not much is new. I've blown through most of the $T I won a couple of weeks ago, using them to buy into SNGs. A quick glance shows that I'm probably about even between what I've won from these SNGs and what I could have added to my bankroll if I just converted them outright to real money at 5% commission.

Still donking around at .25\.50 level staked from time to time as well. I've been playing most of these without Holdem Manager; I'm only about 1500 hands deep anyways. Unfortunately, I'm showing a $82 loss so far at this level, although I'd been in the positive if I were to exclude one hand where I lost a buyin at a deepstack game:

Sad to say I won't be in the Mookie tonight. I was able to score some Radiohead tickets for tonight's show in Auburn, WA. To mark the occasion, I leave you with some performances from Radiohead that I dedicate to some of you bloggers.

Jamyhawk: Lucky (for the nice run he's on lately)

Instant Tragedy\Buddy Dank: Talk Show Host (LPR represent!)

Schaubs\Pauly: Paranoid Android (for all the stoners)

Waffles (no explanation needed)
