I am looking forward to big weekend of online poker. Full tilt has been running double guarantees in all tournaments this week. This coupled with the feature that allows you to enter the same tournament up to four times has made for ridiculously huge prize pools all week.
The abundance of great tournaments which you can enter four times each has enticed me into playing up to 16 tables at a time. I had no idea how much more demanding it is than playing my normal one or two. You can’t even watch a TV show. I will need a little rest in the short time before FTOPS XIX starts Feb. 6th, which will also have a number of events with the new multi-entry feature.
I will be missing a couple days of the FTOPS for sure as we will be attending some events around the Grammys which start on the 10th with a Black Eyed Peas party.
I watched President Obama’s speech a couple nights ago and thought he should go into coaching in the NBA or motivational speaking in 6 yrs when he is done as president. I was inspired as always. It is weird to think of him being done in his early 50’s.
I am still very much a supporter of President Obama. I think he has been doing an incredible job trying to do as much as he can given our system of government. He has gotten an incredible amount done and staved off an impending depression that loomed as he took office. For people to expect him to have “fixed” everything by now is just silly, it takes time, especially with Republicans trying to block everything he does, no matter what it is.
The only thing Obama has done that I strongly disagree with is praise the Eagles for having Vick lead their team. I too believe in rehabilitation, but this wasn’t drugs or guns, it was personally electrocuting, drowning, strangling and otherwise torturing dogs. He picked dogs because he thought he would get away with it. In my oppinion anyone that would do this to dogs would have done it to people if it wasn’t for the consequences, it’s psychopathic behavior. You can’t rehab a psycho, as far as I know. You can send a message though…“If you are caught torturing and killing dog’s(or people), you’re done.” I wouldn’t allow him to represent any organization I was involved in after that.
