It’s been a week now since I left Las Vegas. Hurricane Sandy’s extensive wipeout of Long Island’s power grid made going home pretty pointless, and so I remained a guest of the Rio for 8 days longer than I had planned. Luckily, myself and most of my friends and family suffered only minor damage [...]

I have been working with Russell Thomas the past couple of months on short stack play and ICM issues. I am doing an entire series of videos about my work with him over on PokerVT.com where I make poker training videos. You can also check out more of his training he did with Jason [...]
While watching and listening to the broadcast for the Big One for One Drop there was a lot of interesting analysis from very high level pros, but there was a pretty big mistake that several of them made. I heard them say a couple of times that once it got to the final table and [...]
While at the WSOP, I had several opportunities to play in some rather interesting home games. Over the summer, I played holdem, plo, pineapple, three-card holdem, 5 and 6 card plo, pot limit badugi double draw, pot limit stud (starting with 4 cards), chinese, and a few other even stranger games for just an [...]
So, one of the cooler videos I did for Poker VT a while back was on variance. I don’t think most people truly appreciate how crazy variance can get. In one of my earliest videos I showed off a program written by RVG (who later went on to create HEM) that was an ROI simulator. [...]
With the closure of the two largest sites in the US I’ve taken to playing a lot more live as I live in Las Vegas. I’m still feeling things out and running around to various poker rooms to see what’s going on at each one. Here’s a picture of Binion’s from earlier tonight:

If you’re just joining me, these origin posts are a slightly updated series of posts I wrote originally for SomethingAwful chronicling my [...]

Well I’m not really shocked that I didn’t stick to my once a day promise. Sorry about that! There should be about 2 more updates to post, give or take, which’ll come over the next week or so. This update is the first [...]
Help JCarver is writing all these posts and taking over the website!!!
No really they’re worth reading, so be sure to go check them out.
I’ve got some interesting stuff in the pipeline, one is a review of probably the first poker book I’ve read in almost 2 years, and it’s not me making fun of T. J. [...]
