in Poker and the Brain: Win more with the right nutraceuticals
Date: Fri, Jul 24, 2009 Professional

So I've been on a little hiatus for the last 3-4 months.... Not only am I behind on articles for my blog, but also for Bluff Magazine.

However, it's been because of a good cause.. or at least I think so.

I, along with 4 of my friends and several employees, have launched Muscle Geeks, an online dietary supplement retailer that's ...

Date: Wed, Jun 3, 2009 Professional Internet

Good news, I have been running good since I last posted. I completed a total of $500 worth of investments with a total profit of $165.60.

The bad news is I did not reach my May profit goal of $200. This was the result of not recycling my money fast enough. It was ...

Date: Wed, May 13, 2009 Internet Live Tournament

I've had a fairly good week. I've cashed in 3 tournaments in a row. My last was an 11th place finish in the nightly HORSE tournament. I was catching cards and had a very big stack at one point, so the 11th place finish is kind of disappointing.
