There is no island…

Went to go see the movie The Island with Dorf last night in Marina Del Rey. I wasn’t really expecting that much going into it… not the biggest Michael Bay fan (although I do like Ewan McGregor). Figured it would be a good way to kill a couple hours. I was pretty surprised at how…

Venice

Hanging out in Venice with Dorf has been pretty cool. He shares a place in Venice with our friend Rebekah… the same girl I mentioned a few times who’s been working on a poker documentary for a while. She actually got a deal to show her doc in a serial format in England, and I…

Independence Day

It’s been awhile, so I figured I’d update the blog for the holiday. First off, I ended up coming in 37th in the $2000 NL tournament that I wrote about last. It was pretty disappointing to get that close to a final table after making my way through so many entrants. But you can never…
