Before I get back on the poker grind..

Get back to playing already you lazy bum.
 A couple poker related interesting reads and videos!

+EV* A Poker Comic with Positive Expected Value - A poker comic! This is a series that pokes fun and shows how it is(just sliiiightly exagaterated) to be a professional poker player, with a family to support. They update every Wednesday and Sunday, so be sure to visit and show the artist some love.

Online Poker’s Big Winner - An article about Daniel Cates, a 21 year-old self made multimillionaire from poker. A surprisingly good read, and delves into the world of online poker players.

Why I don't tell people I play poker - A pretty funny Xtranormal video about why poker players as a whole don't usually tell people why we play poker for a living.

Well that's that for now, I promise I'll get back to putting in some volume of play, and there are a couple big online tournaments I'm going to be playing on Sunday, so I'll share how that goes as I get back to finally playing a good amount of poker.

  8. When I supported myself on Poker between jobs, I learned very quickly to never, even tell people I play poker for a living. I also never, ever tell people I cashed at a major tournament.. unless it's semi-anonymously on a blog. Har. :B Anyways, good links. Thanks!
