My blogs a little dusty I see

Well I guess its time I get out the swifter duster and put a new post up on here before my blog gets all dry rotted and fossilized. Its been a rough couple of months for me with not much time for poker let alone a trip to A.C. . I can say that I have only played live 2 times in the past 3 months, had a nice hit at Pops game a few weeks back though. Cashed out a lil under a G in the 1/2 NL game. Thats about it though as far as poker goes for me in the recent months, but thats all about to change.

For those of you that know me you know that I had the opportunity to be a single Dad for the summer which is why I have not had much time for poker. Let me tell you it is the single hardest thing I have ever done! WOW its hard keeping up with a lil munchkin. My daughter Emma, who is 5 kept me on my toes that is for sure. Of course she and I got in quite a few HU matches of NLHE over the past few months but I just couldn't compete with the luck of the toddler LOL. But seriously between running a business, getting the lil one to daycare, cooking, and doing all the other household chores, and taking Emma on our little excursions to the park and the movies and such, I had no time to do anything else at all. It was quite stressful but did open my eyes to a lot things that is for sure. Made me appreciate a lot of the smaller things in life and realize how quickly your kids grow up. So for those of you that have kids spend as much time as you can with them because one day they will be all grown up and you will wish you did more. Plus its fun to pretend to be 5 again LOL!

Well among other things I wanna get in some poker in this coming month and there are some good tournaments coming up in A.C. in September. I plan on hitting up a few and taking a few trips to A.C. as well. First one I'm aiming for is the USPC I plan on doing the $300 event on the 21st and the $500 on the 22nd both are NLHE and possibly one more event if I do well in one of these. Then there is the NJ State Poker Championship on the 8th and 9th of Sept. not a very publicized event but seems like a decent tourney. The Hilton hosts it and its a $300+30 entry but they are running MTT satellites everyday for like $33, so I might try to slide in on one those if possible. If not I'm probably just going to head on up and give it a shot, its a two day event so hopefully I can make it through day 1. Then there is the Borgata Poker Open, which I would like to play in one of the $500 events but the dates kinda conflict with some things I already have scheduled, so we will play that one by ear.

Well I have a nice month planned for Sept. lets hope it goes well if all else fails I hope to at least cover my buy ins playing cash games up there. I will definitely keep those who read my blog updated if there are any of you left.

Ahh yes and don't forget the the 1/2 PLHE game at the Trop on the 22nd of Sept. I will definitely be playing that. Hopefully we will have a full table of MDP'ers for some supreme Donkeyness . Until then stay tuned I may just have to post some non-poker related content to keep myself occupied.
