Iâ€™m extremely excited about what the next year will be like for my poker game. I finally renewed my DC membership for a year term, taking advantange of the sweet deal of getting a license for Omaha Manager and a signed copy Tommy Angeloâ€™s Theory of Poker book, and I can already see the +EV effects of watching a few videos over the Free Flash Weekend. My thought process during my hands is much more analytical then it was last week. Iâ€™m seeing spots that I wouldnâ€™t have before. Itâ€™s just crazy how a little knowledge, well applied, can help your game.
I even took the time to play a little PLO after watching the first two episodes of Hellomaha. To be quite honest, I wasnâ€™t expecting much, I just wanted to get a feel for the game but I got into some good situtuation. One of them, me getting completely free rolled with a made nut straight and the other crushing a nut flush with quads. It seems like itâ€™s going to be a pretty crazy game to learn.
With my new membership, I decided that I was going to be a lot more active on the DC forums. I even got my network administrator to unblock deucescracked.com from our firewall so I can access it from work, -EV for work, +EV for poker. ;) While browsing the forums I found one thread and one blog post that really inspired me for the upcomping year. The first being Malefiicusâ€™ Poker Story. Unfortunately, living such a life is impossible for me as Iâ€™m married and own a house and about to start a family, but just the idea that he was able to start living this life from simply working hard on his game has grown my desire to do the same. Anything is possible if you put your mind to it.
And reading DCâ€™s Origin Story on KRANTZâ€™s Blog just how great DC is. The enthousiams in his post is, as said many times before, epic. Itâ€™s made me proud to be part of this community. Now I just need to figure out how to get a DC hoody so I can show my pride at the local casino when I start crushing the games there! Always look left baby!
