Y'know, poker players as a whole? We're a lazy bunch.

Poker players, as a whole, are one of the laziest bunches of people you'll ever meet. During my time at Comic-Con I thought of maybe a million articles I could write about, celebrities I ran into, amazing people I met, an event I went to, or maybe an article about strategy and abusing that really drunk player at the table with all the money? I thought of all these things and realized, it's not just me! The poker player community as a whole are a very lazy bunch! We work on our games, go through our hand histories, talk about different lines and strategies to take against certain players, on certain tables, on certain games.. but when it comes to almost ANYTHING else? We're most likely going to all give to the same sigh of


I will get off my ass and write a very good article of my time at Comic-Con, promise! But for now, just have a picture of us and Hurley.

Full Tilt Funds... Still Frozen

It has been over 3 months since USA Full Tilt Poker players had their accounts locked. Over 15 Million USD (estimated) are still unavailable to players on this website. Several 'highly influential' players are filing lawsuits against Full Tilt Poker, demanding their funds to be returned. These players are claiming to represent the entire community affected by this event.

I did a google search and found this interesting website: Stolen Bankrolls The purpose of this site is to get a better idea of how much poker money is locked up from government seizures as well as poker sites and e-wallets that have gone out of business. Report your lost funds and voice your support to end this legal mess.

Harry Potter! - World Series of Poker! San Diego Comic-Con!

It's been a really busy last two weeks for me, especially poker-wise. It's been getting harder and harder to fit playing poker into my schedule, and only getting harder with all these summer activities going on.

The latest Harry Potter movie comes out tonight, and although I'm not the biggest fan out there, I'm definitely excited to see it. I've read all the books, and watched the films, and I've felt like, as cheesy as it sounds, that I've grown up with these characters, and I'd love to see(even though I've read and I kinda already know) how it all ends for them.

Well I'm also really excited for San Diego Comic-Con(SDCC), it's happening 7 days from now, and if you seriously have never heard of it, IT IS HUGE. A weekend of nerd-gasming for all shapes and all types of people. There are plenty of panels I want to see, many celebrities I'm hoping to run into, and a lot of new media I'm looking to see for the first time or play. Well if you're going, I'll see you there, and if not, I'll try to update more often!

Meathead Movers

MEATHEAD - (noun) a strong, clean cut, student-athlete from a local college.

Meathead Movers do one thing only and they do it well, that is, to help you move your furniture and belongings from one location to another. What sets Meathead Movers apart from other moving companies is their speed. They can easily handle any task and are very quick about it. They actually JOG when they are not carrying boxes or furniture. If you need help packing your items to be ready to move don't worry, they provide a service called "Princess Packers" to help you with all you packaging needs.

Also to be noted is their professionalism and cleanliness. They do their job, and they get to done properly. No hassle with damaged items during the move. Also it feels really good supporting a local business and not going with one of the "big guys."

I would recommend Meathead Movers to anyone moving locally and even long distances. With over 3,000 moves per year, they are the largest and quickest moving company in San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara, and Ventura counties. The Meathead Movers receive consistently high ratings on review sites like

So check them out if you ever need any assistance moving in the California area:

Table Image (Psychology Viewpoint)

Table image is the perception other players may form about another player. The most common table image labels are: loose, aggressive, passive, or tight. Other, more specific labels include: places too much value in hands, calling stations, weak, likeliness of 3bet or shove, plays only nuts.

A mistake people often make when "forming" a table image is that they begin "playing into" their image too quickly. Complaints of "I was playing so tight the whole night, how do you fucking call me?" often arise.

Also, when you have "formed" a table image, some players use their image and incorrectly target players. The more novice an opponent is, the less likely they are to notice your "image". The table image you perceive of yourself may not match the other player's image of you.

Once you have established you table image make sure that your plays still make sense. For example if you have a very tight/aggressive table image and you decide to mix up your gameplay with low suited-connectors, you should play the hand consistent with your image.
