Pimpin' Ain't Easy But It's Necessary

Poker Tip O' the Day
If you're not feeling it, get up and walk away. In the glorious day of online poker there's absolutely no excuse to sit and play when you're distracted, pissed, tired, etc. There are always thousands of players and thousands of games, every single hour of the day. Forcing yourself to play when you're not playing optimally, for whatever reason, is a recipe for disaster.

I'm struggling to find some decent poker content to pimp, so you'll have to make due with a long thread on 2+2 where Sklansky manages to make an ass of himself again. I'm sorry, but every time he opens his mouth (or, umm, engages his fingers) on the 2+2 forums I lose a bit more respect for him. I fully realize the huge influence his books and thoughts have had on poker in general, but I can't help but think he's a very good example of the "He who can, does. He who cannot, teaches" dictum. And the sadder thing is that he's not even a particularly clear nor polished teacher.

I've also added a few new poker blogs to the daily reading list over the last week or so. In no particular order, here they be. If you're not reading them, dude, get on the trolley:

  • Poker on Film

  • Riding the F Train

  • John-Paul Costales

  • Once in a Blu Moon

  • Internet Poker Pro

  • Poker Roadtrip

  • For the hard core bonus whore addicts out there (you know who you are) like myself that chase Crypto bonuses every month, you may have a use for any player points you've accumulated on Caribbean Sun, per the following email I just received:

    You've asked, and we answered...(basically we finally gotten our s**t together with the poker points), so clear your calendar this and every Thursday at 7:00 PM EST during the month of October, and you can now use the poker points that you've been earning for months in the poker room to enter the $1,000.00 (guaranteed prize pool) No Limit Hold 'Em tournaments on Thursday's.

    The entry fee for the private tournaments will be 1100 Poker Points or $10+$1, and the guaranteed prize pool is $1,000. So invite a friend, just make sure he doesn't play better poker than you, and we'll see you in Caribbean Sun Poker room on Thursday.

    I've played a few MTTs on the Crypto sites and if you play, be ready for the gamboolers. Don't be scared off by early all-ins, as I've seen people push with hands like K10o, A8, etc.
