I suppose, and given the original publishing date card games in general were obviously much less wide spread. So it made sense then. But hell, I picked all this up in my first month of playing in college, let alone online. People really do underestimate how much an advantage constant online play is, few clicks away from a game whenever you want, name the stakes. If I were born in 1954 instead of 84 I'd have played maybe 5% of the total hands I've played now.

online poker has accelerated the talent pool so quickly. now everyone is capable of playing no limit pretty well hence why I started playing omaha. the games online are really tough and hard to beat. I still play NLHE live because those are the juiciest games but I rarely play NLHE online.

Here is some really good intermediate strategy that is free.

Wasn't able to finish even half of the book. How close was the film to the novel? because I find myself almost one-sidedly sympathizing with Humbert.

You are a pathetic child.

Never saw the Jeremy Irons version but it would be hard to compete with Stanley Kubick's masterpiece with Peter Sellers.

Started reading The Brothers Karamazov by Fyodor Dostoyevsky again. After that I have Beautiful Losers by Leonard Cohen to read.

yeah, this is a great read. Funny, I love this style of writing (descriptive, little background narrative, etc.), but my wife hates it. As she says, I already know what a sunset looks like, get on with the bloody story! Whereas I love a great prose painting.

Im hoping Brown's latest is closer to my favorite 'Deception Point' than his last one the infamous, gimmiky 'Da Vinci Code'...


Finished this last night, it left me with a huge Meh

Not worth the wait..
