It's hard to believe another year has come and gone. Personally, I thought 2010 sucked. It was right up there with 2009 as a contender for worst. year. ever. But that's just me and whatever, it's history. It's never too early to start writing a different story and a change in the calendar just makes it cleaner when you write the story later on.
I don't know about you but I'm still waiting for an earthquake to reshape the poker landscape. There was a lot of chatter at the end of the year about the Reid bill. I can't say that I'm sad that it failed. I would like online poker to be explicitly legal as much as anyone, but not at the cost of giving away the store to Caesars Entertainment and other brick and mortar gambling entities.
I haven't been playing much and when I do it's been down in the bargain basement of Rush NL. I even got in an hour of Rush on the phone the other day while waiting for a service call. I didn't quite win enough to pay for my bill for the month, but at least I got a couple days paid.
Poker will continue to be a pleasant diversion as long as it's available.
The social aspects are probably more enjoyable than the game itself. It felt like 2005 for a while yesterday while a bunch of people popped in to rail Drizz as he earned a nice payday. As a bonus I got to extol the virtues of Brett Favre to the lone Russian player at the final table (thank you Google Translate!).
I have no goals for 2011 other than to have fun and to continue to not risk anything I can't afford to lose. I like my chances. Oh, and yeah, add fix my blog template to the list.
It may be that I need to find an outlet for all my random personal observations. I shouldn't clutter up this space and not everything can be crammed into 140 characters. Could it be ... time for another blog?
