  4. um, for the same reason a dog licks his balls?
  5. so me and a couple friends had a 2 part challenge amongst ourselves. We had a month to play min 20 SnG / Tournaments for best ITM% and ROI. I cashed 1 time in about 25+ tries and proceeded to lose my entire roll at $2 level. Awesome. Honestly tho, I was almost happy to go broke and just quit playing online. It just wasn't fun anymore. period. The sad thing is, I was a decent NLHE tourney player and may have shown a profit, except when I'd play PLO and wipe out any bankroll building progress. P
  6. I'm in a monthly poker league with 17 members. Each month we play a tournament for both cash and Final Table standings. We hold 25% of the prize pool each month and compile it for the Final Table prize pool at the end of the season. 10 people will make the final table based on their season long rankings. Top 9 are automatically in, and 10-13 play for the 10th spot. Your monthly score is based on where you bust out. For example, if you bust out first you get 1 point, 2nd gets 2 points and so on. 1st place would get up to 17 points if everybody shows up.Here's my dilemma: Tonight is our
  7. Try the Restaurant "Mothers" over in the business district across Canal from the French Quarter. You might have to wait in line for a bit, but the shrimp and softshell crab po'boys are incredible (and HUGE). The etoufee is real nice too. Otherwise, eat anywhere like Freddec suggested. have funP
  8. There's not much talk about Michigan Charity poker rooms out there, but I found this forum dedicated to those rooms. There's not much traffic there yet, but I'm hoping to get a free night away from the baby and go play soon. Does anybody have any reviews or thoughts about any of the ones around metro Detroit? http://forum.michiganpokergames.com/index.phpI don't know if I'm stepping on toes here and don't have anything to do with the forum, but thought it could benefit folks around MI. Especially those not able to play at the Casinos. I'm not sure, but think the legal age is 18 to play at

  10. They may have only sold 36 condos recently but I can tell you that most of the Veer Towers are already sold, and have been for quite some time. I'm one of the architects that was working on that project and it was pretty exciting, especially when I got to go out and actually visit the site (Our office is based in Detroit, MI). What we should really be talking about is how MGM/Mirage's stock has completely tanked over the last year and they've stopped funding for many other projects they had my firm ready to work on. Which leads me to my hidden sympathy post: since our firm lost so much work
  11. so the joke's on Clonie when she gets assault charges pressed because the tasing will be done in public, thus nullifying any contract or rights to profit sharing at FullTilt Poker, right? ;-)
  12. well thanks for all the replies fellas, glad I could add some humor to your day too. I figured I was a little more 'worried' than need be, but had to ask. good luck :-)P
  13. So after reading the whole tax lowdown of the WSOP final table and some other articles regarding online poker and taxes on taxabletalk.com, it occurred to me that I could get a nasty letter from Uncle Sam if my old NetTeller account gets investigated.Essentially, it was an offshore bank account that I was obligated to report on my tax returns. I didn’t. I didn’t because I didn’t know that’s how it was looked at, nor did I know I had to report them. So now Uncle Sam is going to look at it and see that the only transactions were deposits from my bank, FullTilt and Pokerstars, and withdrawals
  14. I just logged in - down to three. Gotta love the shots of the bar in the back of the room.
