It took me over 100 tries over many different forums, but I did it!

I finally got a locked thread! Haha.

So the honest truth about my blog is I stopped because I started to feel the need to stop being 100% honest

Needed to stop being 100% honest or stopped needing to be 100% honest?

One of the big draws of your blog was the honesty and relatability. It was really nice for me as a 6/12 player to read about you having been a 6/12 player and moving up to 30/60.

On a semi related note, whenever I met 2p2ers at the table and people asked how we knew each other, I always use you as the explanation. We're friends of friends, do you remember Jesse etc etc etc.

"Friends of Jesse" -- kind of like "Friends of Dorothy," but for poker.

The sidebar was all messed up and OOT nearly disappeared entirely and now you'll notice that Live Poker is way down from where it used to be so I started a thread in ATF asking what was going on but it turns out it belonged in the 'Forum Changes' thread. I would've caught that but I didn't think that ridding the site of the 'Communites' sub-forum would be included in that but it turns out they'd over looked it.

Jeez, look at all of that typing I did!

Definitely needed to stop being 100% honest. I've always thought my blog was popular because of what you said, ie it was raw honest and unfiltered.

Maybe I'll try again with SARS 90% honesty setting

Also....my new poker friend booked back to back 100 bet days. Anyone else have that merit badge (other than Jon Locke, who's probably done it in two sessions the same day he golfed)

Edit: Apologies. I have no clue how to post screen shots from my phone on this forum. Those images look good on my phone and are super huge when I'm on the desktop.

Welp, I've had to give up 4-8. Besides the money not being interesting I've had enough of the OPTAH violations, the talking about the hand in progress by those not in it and what passes for post-hand 'analysis.'

If that was the game I'd just quit.

Howard, I know a couple of guys that made the changeover. The game might not be as much fun, but they are making more money. I drove up to Wildhorse Pass for the vloggers game (I had something to do in Glendale as well) and played the spread limit. The Orleans 4/8 crowd are much better players.

BJ is like crack to me.

I might just concentrate on the 8-16 0E but the problem for me is that I'm used to the game speed of LHE.

Howard has already given reasons he doesn't want to play that much.

Re: 2017 ustakes NC, where the steaks are wafer thin (Low Content Thread)

The 8-16 0E would be my game of choice if I absolutely HAD to win but I don't and it's not much fun. Plus it doesn't always last and w/ the degree of patience required and the reduced hours I have available I just don't like it.

8-16 LHE, I'm coming HOME!

HB-

Remember when we first met. Those were your halcyon days of 20/40. My memory is understandably fuzzy, but I think I won 6 or 7 racks that night. My flopped set of 3s probably netted me two of those racks.

In other news, I did a moneyline bet on the Titans/Steelers with Jesse. My 100 to his 300. Only did that because he was being a curmudgeon about giving me 7.5 straight up.
