I reached PlatinumStar VIP on PokerStars this weekend but reached it by erasing all my winnings from the month.
As many of you know, I’m in the midst of transitioning from being one of the top LHE players on my cul-de-sac to a non-busto online NLHE. In the process, I’ve focused on 6-max NLHE on PokerStars, playing $0.25/0.50 up … Continue reading

I ended up down -$138 including a -$500 table where everything that could go wrong did. It was a great comeback from even worse.
