I've created this blog a few years back to keep track of my online life, the things happening in online games and my social networks.

These days you'll find my cocktail recepies here, poker news, my online poker tails, big boats, bad beats and brags about my life as a low stakes cash grinder and tournament player.

I blog about poker strategy on the EU Poker League's website - eupokerleague.eu. Head over tto the site and check it out! Great community, great players and great poker!

EU Poker League Season 3

EU Poker League at Lock Poker
In other news.. The EU Poker League has joined forces with Lock Poker for their third season kicking off this weekend. There is again over $500 in cash and merchandise up for grabs in season 3 and the tournament schedule has been announced on the weekend.

To celebrate the new partnership with Lock Poker the EUPL has received a complete new skin to go in hand with Lock and personally I think the site looks awesome! Now you'll say "Of course you do, you skinned it" to which I'd reply "Yes I did" - Shameless plug. ;)

However, I invite you to head over the the EUPL website to join the EUPL Grinders for their third season...and before you ask, yes the EUPL is open to ALL grinders from around the world inclusive US players since the EUPL has no Frontiers!

Bodog's Recreational Business Model

I just came across this news post on the Calvin Ayre's (Bodog) website "Viewpoint – Bodog Network’s Recreational Poker Model". I doubt my comment will be published so let's recab the video here.

Viewpoint – Bodog Network’s Recreational Poker Model Video

Jonas Ödman VP of Bodog states that their recreational business model is clearly aimed at the recreational / losing player who deposits a lot. The aim of Bodog here, according to Ödman is to offer players more of a "entertaining poker experience" rather than a real poker grind. When asked what more serious players or poker pros think about the model he replied "They don't like , but we don't care much about that".
