Lucky Chances Trip Report 2
by DJ Sensei on almost 10 years ago

Being as it was Wednesday and all, it was time to roll down to the casino and stack some fools. So I hop on the ol' bike, dodge the rain that may or may not have come down (I wouldn't know, being in the casino all day where they try and keep you from realizing whats going on outside) and head to...

Lucky Chances Trip Report 3
by DJ Sensei on almost 10 years ago

So its been a while since I played much live poker, pretty much since the summer when I played some WSOP donkaments. Mostly an issue of having the vast majority of my money online, of course, and seeing as how I was building up a pretty nice roll I was content to keep growing it and playing bigg... Read More


Lucky Chances Trip Report 4
by DJ Sensei on almost 10 years ago

Seeing as how it was Wednesday and I didn't have anything else to do, it was prime time to hit up the ol' LC and stack some fools. Now I slept in until like 2, which is a little later than usual. I didn't expect to sleep so late, but I had been up late the night before screwing around on the int... Read More


Lucky Chances Trip Report 1
by DJ Sensei on almost 10 years ago

Well its been a while since I played live. At least, a real big live game like artichoke joes 5/5/10 or the vegas uncapped games. Most of my live roll has been depleted since new years for things like rent and food and everything else I buy. Cash rules everything around me, and such. So I wake u... Read More

Introduction to Badugi
by DeathDonkey on almost 10 years ago

Badugi - the latest game to hit the high limit mix games, home games, and eventually the internet.  This unique draw game has some sort of mysterious aura around it, probably stemming from the fact that there is no literature on the game whatsoever to turn to for advice.  The... Read More


Introduction to 2-7 Triple Draw Lowball
by DeathDonkey on almost 10 years ago

Believe it or not, there are poker games besides Texas Hold'em (or possibly if you are from the East Coast and not of the Rounders age, seven card stud).  If you ever tire of playing the same old game everyday, or you aren't achieving the results you want, maybe you should try learning...

Enjoy a Bad Beat
by Joe Tall on almost 10 years ago

I have never suffered a single bad beat in poker.  How could that be, you ask?  Well, it's quite simple, really; I don't recognize bad beats as 'bad'.  To me, bad beats are a good thing and I celebrate that mathematical underdog who brings me one. Bad beats are def... Read More


Artichoke Joe's Trip Report 3
by DJ Sensei on almost 10 years ago

So, its about that time of the week. Monday, as it were. And after a few weeks of loafing about, gorging myself on turkey and video games, etc. I find that its a good day for me to head down to artichoke joes and make some papes. I set the alarm last night for noon, but that was too early becaus... Read More


Artichoke Joe's Trip Report 2
by DJ Sensei on almost 10 years ago

Fueled by the success of my last excursion down to Artichoke Joes to play in their 5/5/10 NL game (the biggest in the bay area that i'm aware of). I decided to head down yesterday and give them the business again. So I took the $5k roll down there, figuring if I lost it then whatever, i'd be ev... Read More
