Heavenly Hold Em Starts Today!

The Heavenly Hold Em Tournament Series begins today at Commerce Casino in Los Angeles. This is the reason I trecked back to the states and is my official live play warm up to the WSOP this year. Today's event is a $300 rebuy event. I'll be investing up to $1,500 in myself and with a $250,000 gauranteed prize pool, a deep cash would be a very profitable thing.

I've played probably 20 hours of live cash games since I've been in town so I'm feeling comfortable at the felt again. Also am in good spirits as I got to hang out three of my very good friends from UCSB last night for the first time in many months. We watched the Laker game and drank away our sorrow's at Tim Thomas's miracle three at the end of regulation and went to a very cool club in Hollywood called the Red Buddha. I wont mention the drunken live play that ensued at the Bike, we'll just say that Bill did not bring his A game, luckily I kept it at low stakes and had a lot of fun ;)

I'm off to the casino hoping to make good decisions in todays event, regardless of what the cards do.

Thanks for reading, now get back to the tables!

P.S. I've always gotten a ton of emails about Thailand and a reader suggested I make a FAQ/Sticky on it and I think thats a fantastic idea. If there is anything at all you want to know about living/working/traveling/playing poker from Thailand, email me at and I'll include your question in the post, hopefully up in the next few days.
