2 Years of Blogging and Bodog Pimpage

I missed me 2 year anniversary for the blog a while back while, during the time when my father passed so I guess I’d like to say cool beans. 400 and something post during that time and I’m still an idiot when it comes to writing. I went back and looked at some old posts and I have seen a change in how I write and also realized that I started this blog with no idea in what direction I or the blog was going.

I did have a minor screw up the other night. I was running poker office and had a bunch of screens open when it crashed. I’m not sure what caused it other then that I had to many screens open and it couldn’t handle the info coming in. Anyway, I couldn’t get it to start so I eventually had to uninstall/reinstall it and lost all of my history. 10s of thousands of hands played are gone. Not really that big a deal because I started over at the beginning of the year so really only had maybe 2 months of stuff gone from what I really wanted.

Also, remember that Bodog has its Blogger event going on Tuesdays so jump in and have some fun.

will earn points based on their finish. These points will be used to rank
players over 4 months of qualifying. At the end of the qualifying series, the top 18 players on the Tournament Leader Board will play in the
