Another Good Tournament Result

I took a big chunk of time off from tournaments after starting to play poorly in many of them. When I did play well, I felt like I was continually getting sucked out on , and I couldn't take the frequent frustration.

I've improved my discipline a bit, and had some recent success. I decided to play in the AIPS No Limit Hold 'em short-handed event.

It went well...

More soon...

A Couple Chicago Poker Open Pictures

As promised, here are a few pictures from the Chicago Poker Open. First, Richard Roeper is flanked by two of the incredible volunteers that made the tournament a success.
Next is a picture of yours truly, Chicago Jason, looking in disbelief. "You want a picture of me?" I was an early chip leader at this point.
Finally, this embarrassing gem was taken just after I knocked Roeper out in third place. We tried four times to take the picture with both of us looking at the camera and my eyes open. I was so tired and the flash was so bright, that we were unsuccessful each time. Roeper made some crack, and as I looked at him to make a smarmy response, this picture was take. "Hey look, its Richard Roeper!" What a dork I am.
