JTV, the addiction, is this MySpace on crack?

Most of you proboly have not heard of JTV but I highly recommend you check it out. It is a site that allows you to broadcast, via web cam, on the internet. You can also watch anyone who has set up a channel. My favorite is East Coast Vegas . As you can see I have set up my own channel. I have not broadcasted yet, but will be in the next few weeks. My channel will be dedicated to mainly online poker discussion and JTV gossip. I am thinking of just doing a regular show vs "lifecasting". Lifecasting is people who broadcast thier lives on the internet 24/7, kinda boring I think. Warning though this site is very addicting. You can say its like MySpace on crack, check it out let me know if you are going to set up your own channel so I can check it out.

Have a wonderful Turkey Day and GO COWBOYS!

Back on Bodog

I'm back on Bodog now because they are paying me faster than PokerStars is. I'm still waiting on a check from Stars issued 11/26, Bodog is paying in 3 days via Fedex. I think someone stole my Stars check in the mail system. Stars says I have to wait till the 16th to cancel the check...we'll see how that goes. Good thing I don't need Bodog bailed me out this time. I have some very exciting news about me being live on the net soon. Stay tuned. Like the pic?? lol

Eating my words....

I know I was stupid to proclaim the Cowboys would beat the Pats by 10+ points. Now you see why I stopped betting on football. lol The boys will be ok though, we will see the Pats or Colts in the Super Bowl.

I know, it's been a while....

Things have been amazingly nomal since I last posted. I'm absolutely in love and still playing poker online for a living. Yep pretty boing. I'm still not making what my real job paid but I'm on a heater right now in mtt's, and had some near misses at some $10k plus cashes in the past few days. Bottom line is I'm a large +even player this year and I am getting better everyday and the big $$$ is about to hit. Mark my words. Plus it's time for me and K to go on a fun vaction. She's never been to Vegas or Cancun so that's proboly one of the places we are going. Hopefully in the next few weeks.

Beyond that I love fall weather in Texas...perfect temps. Went to the Cowboy game Sunday night and lost my $300 razor phone at the game. A good samaritian turned it into the stadium office and I got it back. When I went to pick it up, Tony Romo got in his suburban right next to me. He had a huge smile on his face. Wonder why?? lol

Ballin on Stars...

I started playing Stars again because of the payout problems @ Bodog. I've run up $100 too 2.1k in a week. Cashed out $1100 today and playing the Sunday Million tomorrow for the first time in a while. Be nice to final table that. Otherwise everything is good. Happy to be back winning on stars again.

It was a big adjustment coming back to Stars from Bodog. I had a lil trouble adjusting to the bigger fields. (not being patient) But I did and got a 4th place cash for $1371 last night. Then made another $400 today. I'm on a good roll the last 6 mos.

Poker Forum Posting.

Being I worked 6 days a week till Jan I never really had time to follow, much less post in, any poker forums. Well now that I play poker full time, plus with the Bodog payout situation, I had time to use the poker forums. My main reason for originally posting was to establish a payout time line and info thread for Bodog players, being thats the only site I'm playing right now. Thus my sole source of income. I was so nieve as to the abuse any new poster will get. Man what a circus. You can tell most your posting critic's are loser college kids that spend all of their days in these forums spewing hate. It's actyally funny to me and I got sucked into the name calling shennanigans a few times. All I have to say is if you've never posted in a poker forum ....Buyer Beware, you better have thick skin.

Heading up to Windstar poker room tomorrow for a couple of days of live action and to win a seat to the Million Dollar Red River Tournament the end of August. It's been nearly a year since I've played live. I've been killing online. I'm ready to transition to more live tournaments in the next few months. I'm bout to blow up live big time. Just think you can say you knew me before I was a big name live pro now!

Good news is I'm not donkin my $$ off. I'm just pissed because it's f'n with my paychecks!!! F'n live poker in Texas is illegal and I don't want to move or drive to OK or Shreveport to crush nubs. Guess I'm headin to Vegas Baby.

All this Govt BS reminded me of one of my other blogs I wrote 2yrs ago. Its called The Ultimate Conspiracy.
It's a great read, check it out, tell me what you think. Later. I gotta go wait for my FedEx.

My Email to Calvin Ayre got some answers to Bodogs Payout Issues....

Yesterday I sent Calvin Ayre an email stating my displeasure with their slow payout issues now than WU is no longer an option. I am a member of the Bodog Advisory Council and sent the following email on behalf of online poker players...

Hey Calvin,

My name is Michael acct#xxxxxxx and I've used your site exclusively since December for a sports book and poker room. I am a professional poker player and I make my living online. I never had any issues with withdrawals till now. Since we lost the western union option its seems a little ridiculous that the fastest I can get a payout is 4 weeks via courier? That's horrible customer service, the poker forums (2+2) are now a buzz about worries about getting payouts from Bodog. I don't know if you are aware of the damage your poker room is getting because of the payout issues. I have a 4 figure payout pending since the 18th and am very disappointed that I really have no clue when to expect it. I only get an email from the payout dept stating that Bodog is backlogged and it will take a while. That sucks, How long does it take to cut a check and Fedex it ? 20 business days? I was promoting your poker room in my website and to my poker friends but now I can't do that with the current payout situation. I love your poker room! It makes me alot of money, I DON'T WANT TO LEAVE BODOG! Please is there anything you can do to speed up the payout process???

Well in less than 24 hrs I recieved a phone call from Justin the Poker Room General Manager who Calvin personally wanted to address with me the current payout issues. He told me it's all to do with the UIGEA heat on banks. Bodog can only get its banks to process X amount of dollars in payouts a day. Apparently their banks are worried about getting busted paying players via checks drawn thru their bank. This is also the reason for the loss of WU too. According to Justin, the money is out of Bodog's hands and in their banks hands the minute it is taken out of your for payout. Getting their last minute WSOP qualifiers their money has slowed the process of paying other players the last few days. He explained that they are actively looking for better payment methods. While this did reassure me that everyone will eventually get any payout, it still sucks that it could still take a month. I guess once I get pass the lag of 20 business days and get payouts weekly after that it I won't be as upset. The good thing is Calvin does read his email and gives a decent reply to why this problem has manifested. Blame it on Bill Frist once again. Bodog in my opinion is not trying to screw anyone on payouts, it's just dealing with the UIGEA. The best they can though? That remains to be seen, but I am impressed on the response I got from Calvin Ayre and Justin the Poker Room Mgr. Kudos.

Im on the news tonight!

K and I were interviewed by Ch 8 news in Sundance Square coming out of my bank at lunch today. We didn't know who it was at first, this guy in a suit with a mic comes up and starts asking me questions. We should be on @ 5, 6 and 10 pm. Click here to see us on the Ch 8 news.

Sunday of drowining at the river.

Sunday of drowning at the river. My last 4 tourney bust outs Sunday follows:
all on the river too!!! Both KK hands I was in the top 10 in chips
Me KK vs JJ J on river for a set . I was a 95% favorite to win before river
Me KK vs 10-5 os donk hits two pair on river 88% favorite before river
Me 99 vs A-4 ace on river 93% favorite before river
Me BB 7-2 NOT RAISED, flop comes K-7-2 rainbow all in , called by K-6 .. then K on the river. 81% favorite before river This one hurt, it was in the 50K BoDog tourney about 50 from the money.

Well cant wait to play tonight because the statistical correction is due! lol
Guess that's what I get for being a myspace bully this weekend. It's wierd I enjoy tourney play more than cash play lately. I did have some cashes this weekend though but nothing major. I've logged a about a 100hrs in the biggest nl game the 10/20. That game will get your heart pumping. I've learned that set over set is the biggest winning hand and the biggest ass fuck you can get in that game, and of course there's always good ole AA vs KK too.

Sticks and Stones.........

Ya'll remember what momma used to tell us all when we were kids? "Sticks and stones might break my bones but names will never hurt me" Today's politically correctness is out of control. I hate Don Imus but what has happened to him is absurd. What happen to free speach? This is ridiculous. I remember Saturday Night Live, back in the seventies, with Eddie Murphy and Chevy Chase calling each other honkey, cracker, nigger, and spear chucker in one of the best SNL skit's of all time. If they did that skit today Al Sharpton would be calling for everyones head. Name calling is just that. If you have confidence in yourself anyone could call you anything and it wouldn't bother you. If a black guy called me a cracker, honkey, redneck, white trash, or whatever, I could care less. Sticks and stones may break my bones but names WILL NEVER HURT ME! What do you think?

I'm a full time grinder now!!!

Well not having any banking options to play online I tried ewallet and was able to play online instead of traveling to Shreveport to grind it out for a few days. Well my decision to stay home didnt pay off yesterday..I ended up -200...but today was a different story..I won Bodog's $8500 afternoon guaranteed tourney for $2330!! Yes! My back has been against the wall lately and finally the luck factor helped me on two hands that I should of lost. It was a pay back from the bad beats I've been taking. I'm so happy got rent paid now!!! lol The life of a grinder...a small ball one that is ....for now lol.

I've finally figured out how to paste my my space blog entries here. There are a few posts missing but they can be seen on my My Space account
