The Round Table – Sights and Sounds from Aruba – Before the Tournament - I’m Back!!

So I’ve been on a little writing hiatus – life has kept me busy – but I’m back to fill you in on the happenings down in Aruba.   I’m not joking, a week after I left Aruba last year I kept asking, “is it time to go back yet?” The place is just...

Boot Camp: How Getting In Shape Will Shape Up Your Poker Game

When PokerStars made a commercial to introduce Daniel Negreanu to its stable of top pros, you might of thought he was promoting a fitness show instead a card game. They showed him playing golf, picking fruit from a stand and running down a distant...

Boot Camp: Losing Your Discipline

I've watched the World Series of Poker this year, as I always do, and one thing's stuck out for me that I haven't noticed in past years. Some of the game's best players were having a terrible World Series. Erick Lindgren, for instance, was last...

Poker Pundit - Jeremy “Chipsteela” Menard - No Fear, Just Loathing in Vegas Part III

It was finally time for the 5k 6- max, a tournament that I had been looking forward to the entire trip. When I found out that the blinds were going to start at 50-100, instead of the 25-50 level that the 5k full ring event had, I was pretty upset...

Poker Pundit - Jeremy “Chipsteela” Menard - No Fear, Just Loathing in Vegas Part II

A blog of sorts, a story to be told, the true depth of poker is about to unfold: Sorry it’s been so long guys, there’s been a lot going on lately and it doesn’t really help that sometimes I just get lazy. When we left off I busted out of the $1500...

Boot Camp: What I've Learned From Playing Limit

In an effort to recapture my love for poker - that gnawing need to play cards that used to drive my thirst to learn - I've started to play Limit Holdem. It's still Holdem, a great game that may always be my favorite, even if my love for my poker...

Boot Camp: How To Get Those Fires Stoked Again

As I've talked about in previous Boot Camps, I'm struggling with an extended losing streak that started at the first of the year. And it may have crushed my desire to play. There might be other reasons. It's busier than ever with three little ones...

Jeremy “Chipsteela” Menard- No Fear, Just Loathing in Las Vegas Part 1

So I arrived in Vegas late on a Friday night excited at my chance to finally get my hands on a bracelet and make a name for myself outside of the online realm of poker. I had already made plans to stay at the Rio where the tournament is being held...

What I Learned in Vegas Part II

At the end of my first “What I Learned in Vegas” story, I wrote “I’m sure there is more I will remember as things start to settle,” and things have started to settle. A major thing I forgot in my first story was the topic of Las Vegas water.  My...

What I Learned in Las Vegas

I first went to Las Vegas when I was 19 years old and while I was able to see things, I wasn’t able to fully experience them due to being underage.  Fast forward seven years later (and I do mean fast forward) and I was able to fully experience the...

Poker Pundit - Jeremy “Chipsteela” Menard - So Close, Yet so Far

Another FTOPS has come and gone, and yet again I’m left wondering what might have been. I did manage to cash in several events, but we all know that the big money in tournaments is at the final table and more specifically the top 3, not 50th. I...

The Round Table - Sights and Sounds from a Week off in Las Vegas

I would say that a birthday calls for taking a couple days off from the Rio…and that is just what I did last week. I had several of my amazing girlfriends from LA and college come into town for a couple days and we spent our time in Las Vegas having...

Poker Pundit - Jeremy “Chipsteela” Menard- Lots Goin’ On

A blog of sorts, a story to be told, the true depth of poker is about to unfold: It’s been a little while since my last entry, and I don’t even know where to start with all the stuff that’s happened since then. I take that back, I’ll start off by...

The Round Table – Sights and Sounds from the First Week of WSOP 2009

I got into Vegas on Monday afternoon and since my condo wasn’t ready I decided to crash with friends at Panorama for the night. As soon as I pulled up to valet, Chad Batista and Sorel Mizzi pulled up right behind me. You always know when it’s time...

Poker Plus - The Big Dance

Every year those particular competitors who battle on the green felt arena swoop down on the most decadent of desert oases – Las Vegas, Nevada. Their landing spot is the Rio Hotel and Casino, where every summer the biggest and most prestigious poker...

Poker Pundit- Jeremy “Chipsteela” Menard- Doubt Poker is Real

A blog of sorts, a story to be told, the true depth of poker is about to unfold: All I can say is how… Been on a pretty sick downswing lately mostly due to the fact that I developed a theme for getting 2 outed either on the final table bubble or...

Poker Pundit – Peter ‘number1pen’ Neff - It’s Easier to Win in Beer Pong Than in Poker

A blog of sorts, a story to be told, the true depth of poker is about to unfold: It’s been another 7 years since my last blog, so I have a lot to cover since my last entry. Let’s see, first poker... I played in the Bay 101 WPT in San Jose...

Poker Pundit - Jeremy “Chipsteela” Menard - Learning lessons the hard way

The past few weeks didn’t start off going as well as I had hoped. I bricked in all the SCOOP tourneys I played including the main event. I busted in pretty standard fashion when my overpair didn’t hold against the overs and a flush draw of my...

Poker Pundit - Dan "Wretchy" Martin – Introductions, Poker and Beer Pong

A blog of sorts, a story to be told, the true depth of poker is about to unfold: This is my first blog that I've done since dabbling before with MHREP, so it might take me one or two of these before I get back into the swing of things. Right now I...

The Round Table – Sights and Sounds from the Brunson Beer Pong Invitational II

The Brunson family’s 2nd annual beer pong tournament kicked off Monday April 13th just after 4pm in the afternoon at downtown Las Vegas bar Hogs and Heifers. I headed to the event with Adam ‘Roothlus’ Levy, Peter ‘number1pen’ Neff, and Dan ‘Wretchy’...
