Supposedly this blog involves, along with all the trenchant political commentary, computer advice, Macy life-chronicling and random hilarity, poker. In retrospect, I should have picked a different name for the blog, as I occasionally get emails from people who stumbled on this site literally looking for advice on playing pocket jacks in Texas Hold 'Em. Their critiques of what they found when they got here is a post for another day.
Well, there's finally going to be some poker talk in this space. I am leaving today for a weekend poker tournament at the Shooting Star casino in Mahnomen, Minnesota. When I get back I'll undoubtedly have at least a couple stories to tell, and they may have something to do with the game of poker. Usually in a tournament like this there are a few hands that play out in an interesting way, and (nerd alert) maybe I'll try diagramming them or something.
Anyway, wish me luck in what is being billed widely (okay, only by me) as a warm up to an upcoming trip to Vegas.
