Hello world. I'm in the middle of nowhere, which happens to be in the middle of the United States. The location is Quapaw Oklahoma at the DownStream casino. I got here Friday night for a Deepstacks one day camp. I flew into Tulsa and then I had about an hour and a half drive to the casino here. It's a pretty nice casino and I have enjoyed the trip so far.
On Friday night I ate dinner at the casino's Steakhouse. It was absolutely incredible. The chef is a 6'2 380lb beast and he knows exactly what he is doing. There was about ten of us at the dinner including Mike Matusow, a couple of people from DeepStacks, a few people who run the casino and some regular poker players here. It was an excellent dinner and a great time. After that Mike, Chris (DeepStacks CEO), and I went and played some 5/10 Holdem/PLO. It was a great game and I had a lot of fun.
Today I taught with Mike for a couple hours. It was a one day course so it wasn't too time consuming. I then relaxed for about an hour and ate at the Steakhouse again. Yes, it is that good. After another delicious dinner I played some 5/10 Holdem/PLO and here I am now. It's pretty late. It's almost 5 in the morning. It's the first time I've been on the Internet since Thursday night so I have been wrapped up in things for the last couple of hours.
Tomorrow I am going to Vegas. I'm really excited. I'm expecting something great from myself this WSOP. I'm going to do my best and hopefully things will work out. If I play my best at all times I won't care about my results. With that said, If I am playing my best at all times I can't imagine not doing well. I will be staying in a house with a couple of my Canadian poker playing friends (Tim0thee, Smerks and some guys they know.) I will have a couple days to relax, get settled into Vegas and prepare for the next couple of weeks. I should be blogging and twittering frequently.
A couple days ago I did the free coaching session I had talked about earlier in the year. Sorry for those who didn't get to check it out. I did it on UStream and probably had about 20-30 viewers. I reviewed a hand history of mine and talked about Super Turbo Tournament strategy. I think everyone enjoyed it and it was pretty simple. Coin flip, shove, fold... not rocket science, but still informative. I will probably do some more UStream things in the future but I am not sure exactly how much "coaching" or giving away free knowledge I will do. Probably not much, but I can figure out something that will be fun.
I also Made bluffmagazine's top tweet list three weeks in a row! My best poker accomplishment yet. BLUFF's Poker Tweets of The Week. Maybe I am mildly entertaining, I am not sure lol. I gotta head to bed. I'll get back in the rhythm of blogging soon. Goodnight.
