Jeff Gross - February 12th, 2016

The second goal will be for my live tournaments with regard to ranking in the GPI (Global Poker Index) 2016 POY (player of the year) as well as, the overall GPI ranking. I will be playing live cash games as well as doing Twitch a lot so I want to be careful not to get […]

Blog Wars: The Blogger Strikes Back

Todd McGee - February 11th, 2016

So the first time Justin Buchanan (aka Lheticus) took issue with one of my blog pieces, he at least had the decency to say I had a cool name. This time, he said I was a “snarker.” Well if that’s the way he wants to play it, then so be it. This time, Buchanan (aka […]

2016 Goal Setting and More: Part 1

Jeff Gross - February 10th, 2016

There is something refreshing about the start of a new year. As a professional poker player, it’s like a new season, a new opportunity. With the GPI (Global Poker Index) statistics now you can track your personal progress in the overall GPI world rankings, as well as, the Player of the Year race. This allows […]

Aces Full of It: The Two-Outer

Aces Full of It: The Two-Outer

Justin Buchanan - February 3rd, 2016

Ah, the not-so-humble two-outer. Like a small woodland creature trying desperately to evade a predator, it is one of the more favored defense mechanisms of many species of the previously discussed donkus genus. On a regular basis, many donks fail to employ it to positive effect, much like many small woodland creatures regularly wound up, […]

Re: Poker Commissioner

Justin Buchanan - February 1st, 2016

The last time I formulated a blog entry in the form of a rebuttal to my esteemed colleague Todd McGee, there was some slight talk about a “blog war” to which I stated and I quote “this isn’t a blog war.  You’ll know when I start a blog war. But with this latest post, this […]

Poker Commissioner

Todd McGee - January 30th, 2016

If I were Poker King for a day…. Clocks and muzzles would be the rule. I haven’t played a lot of live poker, but I’ve played enough and watched enough of the World Series of Poker to see a few things that I would change if I could be made the Poker Commissioner for a […]

Aces Full of It: Let it Ride, or Poker as a Metaphor For Life

Aces Full of It: Let it Ride, or Poker as a Metaphor For Life

Justin Buchanan - January 20th, 2016

At this article’s original conception, I wanted to simply write about my experience trying The Playpen, a “kiddy pool” version of Black Chip Poker/America’s Cardroom’s The Cage. (insert the dramatic sound effect of your choice) However, really it wasn’t that much different from my usual experience of playing poker.  Most of what I got from […]

My 2016 Resolutions

Todd McGee - January 11th, 2016

No More Flush Chasing, Better Bankroll Management The beginning of a new year is a chance to take stock of yourself, and poker players are no different. I would like to think I grew as a poker player in 2015 (I know I’ve grown as a person, but not the way I want to. Diet […]

Year in Review: Poker Life on the Road Part2

Jeff Gross - January 9th, 2016

We returned from Israel to Philadelphia to visit my Grandma (93 years old!) and my two aunts all on my Dad’s side of the family. We had a nice visit and then drove to Cape May, New Jersey and caught up with “Holy” Cannuli.  You still couldn’t wipe that smile from his face if you […]
