We have good news to report! Yesterday, the Department of Justice (DoJ) responded to the massive political and grassroots pressure generated by members of the Poker Players Alliance (PPA)  and is allowing U.S. players to access their funds from and in the near future.
xxxooo - PPA

Are these ineffectual lard asses REALLY taking credit for strong arming the DOJ into releasing player money? 

I think Wicked Chops gets way closer to the truth here...

EDIT: Bill Rini gets it!

.. and Grange totally gets it!

What a bunch of pukes.

What would it take?

Logging on to Cake last night reminded me of a promotion they sent out a few months back. They gave me 10 bucks to play, but with so many restrictions (only limit, 5 cent tables, stuff like that) I didn't even bother. In the email they asked "what would it take for you to put real $$ on our site?".

LOL - now you know, Cake. Well done.


Getting $$ on to cake. (getting it off is a whole other matter, but hell, I'll take my chances)

I'll probably throw a couple bucks onto a few different sites if I can, and see which ones work.

If anyone wants rakeback with cake, sign up with this:

I used Visa and it transferred pretty quickly.

I won 5 Buyins last night on Full Tilt!

At the 1k playchip tables.... sigh.

Oh well.... seems every time I feel like I'm playing well and starting to get my mojo back, something happens to put me back to square one. Work too much to play, go on vacation, entire online existence implodes.... you get the idea.

I was one of the few yesterday that was actually able to log on to Tilt and play for $$. Made about $100 at 25NL rush before I logged off. I wasn't able to transfer, and since I've never taken $$ off, I couldn't even put a request for that in... I guess the DNS finally propagated, as I get that awesome FBI message this morning, and can't log in. I have to say, I was feeling a bit left out yesterday when everyone else was able to look at cool FBI shit.

I never put $$ on FT (freerolls, baby!), so I guess I can say easy come, easy go. But to help my friends that are losing their livelihoods, I'm creating the Blaargh Benefit for out of work Donkies. I'll help distribute playchips to needy poker players. The highlight will be a booth where you get to throw a rock at Bill Frist's nut sack (100 playchips per throw!). Don't worry, it won't hurt him. He hasn't used it in years.

Private tournaments

Keeping up with Stars, Full Tilt has now implemented Private tournaments. No idea what took them so long, as they've always had the request feature (as evidenced by the mook/dank, wwdn etc...). So what did take them so long to do this? Are they afraid it makes it super easy to launder money?

On the poker front, I continue to hemorrhage money like it was my business. I feel like I'm playing fairly well, but just can't get that ol' ev line to turn around. Case in point: last time I played I had AA 7 times. Lost 4 on suckouts,  folded to my BB twice, and won one. 2 of the suckouts were to the same guy, who also rivered 2 pair on my AK. K3o is a perfect hand to flat a 3bet oop and jam the flop when the 3 hits (one of my AA hands). Not really a complaint, I have no problem with getting in good... just wishing I could be on the nice side of variance for a change...

Getting busy at work again, not sure how much I'll be able to play in the next month.

The fantastically well worded rant from the great Tim Minchin... now animated for those of you who need pretty colors with your dose of reality...

Don Hertzfeldt has always been one of my favs. He just released 2 of his earlier films on YouTube - Everything Will Be OK, and Rejected (with awesome commentary). Definitely worth your time...

Gone fishin'

Going through a bunch of my old art supplies this weekend. Started drawing and painting again after a long hiatus. Found something that made me chuckle:

Yup. Fish eggs. As with many artists, I use a tackle box for my art supplies. But in my case, I've had the same tackle box since I was 9 or 10. That jar of fish bait has been in there at least that long. 35 year old eggs. Think they'd get me a good price on the Chinese black market?

Here's my trusty Old Pal box:

Under it is a newer tackle box. I got that one when I was 12.

A very special form of Awesomely Crazy...

This is so..... well.... you be the judge.
