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:

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. [...]

It’s been a long time since I posted a blog update. I just never have anything interesting to say.
Anyway, I’m writing this post in part because the SNG series is back on PokerVT. I haven’t run it in many months because of WSOP and then having a lot of eye issues but things are getting [...]

Since getting over being moderately sick for a few months I’ve started to pick things up again. I’ve got a couple of students who are doing good: one went from being a losing player to being up 150 buyins in slightly over a month and has moved up two levels and the other doesn’t [...]

I’ve been pretty busy since getting back from WSOP, but it hasn’t been from playing poker. I’ve been trying to finalize plans to move to Vegas at the end of August. Things are finally starting to get going on that front though. However, I have even bigger news…
I recently got signed as [...]

I’ve felt like writing a lot recently. I’m not sure why that is, but there’s no real need to look into it too deeply. I’m even enjoying writing blog entries, which is cool because I won’t write anything when I feel like it’s a chore. A side effect of this is that it writing [...]

I got back from Atlantis on Saturday afternoon. It was an extremely fun week or so spent amongst friends in a pretty awesome resort. It was my first time there, as I did Aussie Millions last year instead, so I wasn’t quite sure what to expect, but it’s a pretty sweet place and [...]

It’s been a fun past few weeks. I haven’t been particularly productive, but it’s been fun. I spent a lot of time hanging out with friends from the old days, playing games and just generally relaxing. I played poker every once in awhile, won the FTP $150, etc, but nothing really new to report there. [...]

This week has went really fast, and it’s been strange. On sunday, I cashed a few tournaments, the biggest being 4th in the 100r turbo for $10k or so. Tuesday I spent hanging out with JohnnyBax and Sheets. They’re both really cool, down to earth guys who know a lot about tournament poker. I hung [...]

I’ve really felt like grinding this week due to a combination of dread due to the IRS-rape I’m about to recieve in a few days and just wanting to put in a lot of hands. I haven’t grinded any cash but may do so later today or tomorrow if the mood strikes me.
I played poker [...]
