3 Month Anniversary!

Now I just like every other guy when it comes to annoyance with ridiculous anniversaries (ever had the 4 months since our first “I Love You” anniversary? yeah…) but this one is really something to be proud of. It is hard to believe I have enough useless knowledge / stories to fill up three months on a poker blog, and I just want to thank the people who read the stuff I choose to type out. I’d also like to apologize for being lazy (especially on weekends) when it comes to posting new stories, and thanks for putting up with it.

I was going to write about the tournament I run here at OSU and how I organized a Tournament Leader Board, but then I realized what day it was! In the spirit of anniversaries I want to go over some of my favorite posts, a special gift to some of the newer readers who haven’t bothered (I don’t blame you) to look through the old material. I think I may have written a lot of my best stuff to kick off the site when I didn’t have any readers! So without further ado, some of my ‘must reads.’

Running your own tournament
I really enjoyed writing this post, and I think its a great resource with some hands-on advice for running your own tournament. It can be for friends, fund raising, or for competition. One of the most important and most overlooked things in tournament Holdem is the tournament structure. Check out the follow-up aboutEquipment for your Tournament

Checking the River
What is poker all about? Maximizing profits. That’s what I discuss in this post about checking the river card in limit holdem. When you have nothing to gain and only something to lose, maybe it’s best to let them decide whether or not to bet.

“Trapping with the Cold Call”
There are a few moves in texas holdem that make me go “damn I’m a badass” and this is one of them. Watching someone fall helplessly into your trap is one of the most satisfying things in poker, and this article details one way to do so.

Now that the first 3 months are over I think it is time for you readers to come out of your shells and let me know what you want to hear about, post some comments and get involved! I feel much more inclined to post when I have proof people are reading what I write, haha. Peace and good luck!

I've been playing poker for almost four years now (well before it was legal for me, woops!) Besides poker I enjoy playing the guitar and I'm very enthusiastic about pursuing Dentistry as a career. I'm currently at The Ohio State Univeristy studying Microbiology, living with three of my close friends. I'm dating a lovely girl from Australia and am looking forward to the oppurtunity to study abroad over there as well.

  1. You know I read this. I really need to learn how to play. So if you could teach me how to play Texas Holdem in a simple 5 step method for a dumby that would be hugely helpful.

  2. I’ll look into condensing all my ‘knowledge’ into 5 steps – should be interesting. Be on the lookout for that one.

  3. Cowboy, it’s really easy to start:

    1) Create an account, and make sure you choose “fish” as screen name or at least as integral part thereof (in your case “Fishboy” should do).
    2) Put all your money into your poker account
    3) Go play… but make sure you give me a shout about where you are playing currently.
    4) Go all-in – everytime.

    See, and now you even got a unused 5th step for whatever you want to do with it. 🙂

  4. We shouldn’t encourage cowboy to get into poker, he has an addictive personality (and I don’t mean he’s cute), haha.
