Weekend Get Away

Work has been really busy lately and thus just haven't much chance to do a video (or much pokering for that matter). I did take last Friday off and my wife and I went for a long weekend staycation at the Palazzo. Here's how that went down:

"Tell" Me a Story

One thing I enjoy about progressing as a player is increasing my awareness of what is going with the other players in hands - in other words, getting the chance to make use of tells. I'm certainly not to the stage of pegging someone's hand when they eat the Oreo, but here's a story from a recent tournament where tells came into play.

NOTE: I made an error in the hand description in the video - the flop was two clubs not three. The river bought the third club, the 4 of clubs which paired the non club 4 on the flop. Sorry for any confusion.

From a WSOP Move to Matt Affleck

Filmed this video the day the latest rumor broke regarding the sale of the Rio. As you will see however, events actually led me to thinking about Matt Affleck's experience at the main event ...

In the event you haven't seen the details of Matt Affleck's exit from the tournament the hand report can be found here. There's an excellent post on the PokerStars Blog that gives amazing insight into the immediate aftermath of the hand, and you can also catch the interview I heard with Matt shortly after his bust out on the Wicked Chops Podcast.

Listen to The Music

In this video I discuss an important topic - what kind of music to listen to while playing! In particular I reveal my mix designed to inspire you through short stacked tournament play:

So now it's your turn - what kind of music do you like to listen to while playing? Do you have different music that you listen to depending on the type of game/situation you find yourself in?

Also, if you click on the video box above and go to the actual YouTube page with the video you can go to the description underneath the video and find a YouTube playlist with most of the videos mentioned in the short-stacking mix. Maybe you'll find something you like in there.
