Falling Out - 2007 In Review

For newspaper junkies, the end of December may be the worst time of the year. Nothing much seems to happen, leaving desperate editors to fill up space with "Year in Review" and "Best Of" pieces. I never bother to read them - it's not as though I've been living under a rock for the past twelve months, I know what happened. Grr. I think it's safe to say that I'm annoyed by "Year in Review" type articles.

So what do I have for you today? You guessed it, a "Year in Review" post.

I'm such a hypocrite.

So, anyway, I've been doing some reflecting on the past twelve months. Poker-wise, they were decidedly lacking. Let's go with the picture version first:




In some ways, 2007 for me was a year of "poker? what poker?".

Don't get me wrong. I still played a fair amount, but in comparison to 2005 and 2006 it was nothing. I played more home games, went to the track for charity poker more often, went to the casino less, went to Las Vegas more - but played way less - and played much, much less play chip online poker.

Poker simply no longer holds the same position in my life that it did in '05 and '06.

Money-wise, the year was a downer. I'm still tallying it up, but I'm pretty sure that I was a net loser for the year. We're talking a loss of a few Happy Meals - nothing at all substantial - but it's still disappointing.

On the plus side, I was able to go to the December WPBT gathering, which was a blast. I got to hang out with Drizz in Minnesota. BG and the Bracelet returned to the area for a home game. I got mixed up in a 'Stars milestone hand, and J7o was goooood. I didn't get to play as many blogger donkaments as I would like, but certainly enjoyed the ones I was able to get into.

Overall, 2007 was pretty decent. I'll take it and start hoping that 2008 is even better.
