We tend to think that Valentine’s Day is strictly a holiday for the ladies. But who says guys don’t want their gals to go out of their way on February 14th to make them feel special and loved, too? In today’s economy, most of us don’t have tons of extra money lying around to buy extravagant hotel getaways, or even front row tickets to see his favorite band or sports team. Here are a few ideas to show your man he’s special, without breaking your wallet.
If you aren’t preying on the poor, innocent, undefendable, disadvantaged players at the table, you’re not playing poker like a man. In this cut throat game you’ve got to take every advantage you can get.
As for me, staying out of the way of the pros was probably something that contributed to my making the final table and something I was happy to do. Although Liv Boeree was at my table for a few minutes, I never had the opportunity to play a hand against her and probably survived a bit longer as a result. However, like a fan-obsessed Hollywood stalker, I did use the progress of the pros to chart my own success, as I’m sure my friends on Facebook could tell you. I watched the player standings minute-by-minute to see how many pros were still in and how I ranked compared to them.
Jean-Robert: Well, right now, I am really hoping that the UIGEA (Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act) gets repealed; poker is starting to dry up quite a bit, the game is getting tougher and tougher, people are getting more knowledgeable. It’s not like the old days when you knew you were going to make x-amount of money each month. It’s a grind, so I’m hoping dewapoker opens up to the public like it was before. When that happens, some of us that have already made a little bit of a name for ourselves might end up with some huge sponsorship deals.
Jean-Robert: Definitely would have liked that because then I could take some winnings and enter. Otherwise I’d have to put 40K right into that and be busted for the rest of the series.
Jean-Robert: I am really going to see as we go. Last year I think I played like 23 events last year. I was looking at the events that I am interested in. I am actually interested in 42 different events, they overlap each other, but I would imagine that I would probably end up playing somewhere between 20 and 25 events again this year.
If you are into the stock market system and are against the odds, it is best to keep losses small, run profits and have confidence in what you are doing and believing that you can make a lot of money.
