Yes, I'm still alive. And I even still play poker.
My latest results have been good from a profitability standpoint. With some time off, my wife being so gracious, and my little one settling into a routine conducive to such, I did get some more opportunity to play throughout the end of the year and am closing the year on a 3 month (9 session) Rush Poker winning streak, during which I have more than quintupled my Full Tilt bankroll (which isn't saying much, but is always a marked accomplishment), SNGs continue to be my breadwinner on Stars, and live has been very consistent. My big leak this year was MTTs online, where I still couldn't ever close the deal, and this year struggled cash like I used to (which isn't necessarily a bad thing), but I still came out in the black overall when all was said and done.
All that said, I got out to the local casino for the first time since August '09 (sick!) on Jan 1, put in a healthy session (felt great!), and booked a win twice the size of all of my 2010 take, and played some good poker to boot. I then turned around and nabbed another nice little score in a home game on the 2nd, making for my 2nd most profitable 24 hours yet.
I'll need to get these details documented soon as I want to remember it, and have also obviously tallied up my 2010 results & need to do a year in review, but can't do it right now.
Happy New Year to everyone, and I'll be back soon w/all the dirty details. Thanks for stopping by!
