30 Days Until Graduation, Poker Going Poorly

by Shannon Shorr |  Published: Apr 08, '10


I kind of forgot I had a blog, as I guess it's been 4 weeks since I last posted. For several reasons, I love having a diary about poker tournaments, so I expect to always write atleast a couple sentences about all tournaments I play; however, with the popularity of Twitter and Facebook statuses I can sort of write one sentence updates that are more fun and easier than blogging about my life outside of poker. That said, entries will continue to be infrequent unless I'm playing much poker.

Peel some onions before they hand out the diploma and you'll look suitably emotional.

I think it's great that you had the gumption to finish college. I ran out of money, hustled a job working on computers and 39 years later, I have a career. But I wish I could have finished. Wish I could play better poker too...that is not my career!
