Congratulations to DeepStacks Live lead instructor Tristan Wade on his first career WSOP Bracelet win.

It’s been a while since I’ve played poker outside of the home game.  Since I took a 4th place finish at the $120 buy-in Venetian in Las Vegas during Brett’s bachelor party, I haven’t hit the tables at all.  Some of the reasons have been financial.  I just can’t really afford to go play poker these days.  But honestly, most of the reason has been a loss of excitement and desire, as I find myself losing the capability to connect to the game regularly.

So here’s what’s going on and what I think is interesting in the events that will transpire today: Read more…
