Back to "Start-Up"

Last year I made a decision that I was tired of working for start up companies and the long hours that entailed. Thought decision to go to services company would free me up. Then they pimped me out into my old industry.

Even at the biggest companies apparently they will request that you put in some extra hours to reach project milestones. I am probably stuck working 60 hour weeks for most of February.

Poker will probably limited this month, I may even have to use medals to maintain my IronMan streak unless RushPoker can get me some points. There is no reason to give former blogger RecessRampage an opening to a longer streak just in case he drops pathetic claim that Platinum Star status on PokerStars is worth more than rakeback on FullTilt.

I hate that Gold Star status on Pokerstars may slip away from me as well, I like to maintain that so if double status tournies return I can sneak my way to SuperNova, came close last time they ran promotion but settled for bump to Platinum.

Next Post will probably be my NCAA tourney preview.

At least the long hours this time mean the sure thing of overtime rather than the speculative payout of IPO. It's like I switched from playing tournies to grinding cash.

The ONLY reason I'll try for IronMan is because of Rush Poker. Playing one table for hour during "happy hour" nets the 200 points needed.

Since that's usually all I have, it fits.

Nice...you have me soundly beaten. I'm at 41.

46 Wow!

Poker Stud!

Rush poker is intriguing!

But take the overtime, you'll never know when it will come again!

fyi : Word verification bytes

Yes; Rush poker can get you easy points for the day; I've been averaging 500 / day lately in about 2 hours of 3 tabling.

Do you know who am I?
Here is a hot news
The Colts continue to surprise everyone and keep playing their stars. Players such as Peyton Manning, Dwight Freeney, and Reggie Wayne continue to suit up for the Colts. The Colts have accomplished everything set out so far but it still remains a question if going perfect is one of those items.More interesting NFL Shop
This week will be interesting to see what happens with the Jets. The Jets are fighting for their playoff lives and also have the best defense in football. Is that something that Peyton Manning needs to see right now? It’s a hard question to answer but all I know is that this is still the #1 team in football.
