No One Nose

I can’t say I’m very interested in the Dr. Jacylnn Moskow/Nolan Dalla debacle itself. No one can know exactly what happened in the late night mists of personal ambition and industry politics, never mind under the pressures of the all-encompassing, 24/7 sexual marketplace; leaping to conclusions is a sign of bad[…]

Capped Game Spots, Part II

Differing from the first installment of this slightly dull series of posts, aimed specifically at the die-hards (including myself) and the cubicle grinders who read my pieces on smartphones between hands or on the toilet at work, these spots were part of two adjacent but brutal sessions where very little went my[…]

Capped Game Spots, Part I

Over the course of two consecutive sessions, both entirely profitable and generally satisfactory, I was involved in hands that had me second guessing myself then and now. What makes them worth commenting on is, oddly, even if I was right to act as I did, I’m wishing, in a combination of poker[…]

Here’s a review I promised:17.http://cardplayerlifestyle.com/Robbie Strazynski appears to be a big fellow with a giant face, giant body, and giant white teeth. He probably wears those stretchy polo shirts because he’d rip a standard dress shirt just living[…]

The Rules of Chip Porn

The public distribution of Chip Pornography is not to be taken lightly. Breaking the basic rules is a big no-no, often involving damage to personal reputation and yielding severe self-esteem consequences. To help out readers of OOP, I will go through some basic Chip Porn Principles today.It must be said first that Chip Porn[…]

Risks

It’s hard going, trying to come back from troubles. I don’t feel well. My heart races when the latest idiot leaps behind my car while I pull out of the garage- my nerves are shot from a month of distress and I don’t take it with usual equanimity and disdain. Worse, my[…]
