Stay Tuned...

Haven’t posted here in awhile, but I’m going to do so on a much more regular basis going forward, considering blog content is now going to be an offering for Inner Circle subscribers. 

Huh?

Yeah, I know.  Part of the…

Miscellaneous Thoughts on a Monday Morning…

 The Islanders have a .650 points percentage ten games into the season, which looks decent on paper – but they are not playing well. Still not convinced Lane Lambert is the right coach for this team.

An Early Summer...

Well, the Islanders failed in their bid to beat the Canes.  I guess some small consolation is that the Canes are thus far making the Devils look a lot worse in the next round than they did the Isles, so…

On the Brink...

Was looking forward to a good Islanders playoff run this spring, but that now seems a remote possibility - given that they are heading into tomorrow's game in Raleigh trailing 3-1 in the opening round.  There's a strong argument to…

The stupidity of leaning into low limit...

Lost a fair amount this weekend in two different 2-3 sessions at two different poker rooms.  The first loss (on Saturday) was pretty large, owing to a series of poorly conceived plays based on advanced strategies that I'm realizing simply…
