I was thinking of writing something up for the old 5,000th post but I can't write very well and it seems kinda meh with the current state of pokerz in the US.

 

I will summarize what I wanted to eloquently convey by saying that I'm really thankful for what I have learned from poker; while my monetary results have been insignificant, I've learned a ton about myself, emotional control, discipline, the long-run and big-picture, etc.

 

I'm also super grateful to have met such awesome friends through poker, with FCP being the springboard to it all. I greatly enjoy the interaction with people from all over the world, with widely different lifestyles and views, who share a common interest in the game. I have found poker players to be among the most thoughtful and generous people I have dealt with in addition to being some of the brightest and most fun.

 

Through this reflection I've come to really appreciate how lucky I am and how good I run at life. I take this for granted too often, but I hope to continually remind myself of this going forward.

 

Lastly, thanks as always to Bob and Gov for their awesome work around here, it's an awesome community, albeit small and mellow right now.

james is definitely a beast. Even w/ the state of poker being where it is in the US, james is still trying to improve his game, expand his game, and become the best he can be for when poker comes back in the US. Wish the best for you bro, and hope next year you can be in vegas the same time i am!

I may have worried back when I was averaging 10 posts per day or so. At my current FCP posting-rate, I have a good 20 or so years to prepare my 5k post soliloquy.Perhaps I can make a joint retirement/5k post speech.
