Weekly Champion Profile - Me

Back in the day, winning the mookie held a certain distinction among bloggers. Well, dammit if I'm going to miss my chance to participate in the weekly champion profile.

Without further adieu, your weekly champion profile with 23skidoo

Q: How did you get into poker?
My grandmother taught me solitaire at a very young age (6-7 maybe) then when I had a firm grasp of suits she taught me spades, hearts and bridge. When I was about 20 I started a nickle, dime, quarter dealers choice game at my apartment and gained my love of -EV card play.

Q: Do you have any poker related goals and if so what are they?
My main goal is to have fun and don't be stupid. Hard to do sometimes. I also have trouble controlling my emotions at the table especially when someone doesn't follow the rules.

Q: What would your first piece of advice for someone wanting to learn how to play poker (submitted by Maudie)
Learn and practice proper bankroll management. I never have.

Q: What level of static do you get over your poker habit? (Submitted by Drewspop)
This was a huge problem in years past. Now that I have weened myself from the online teat, the wife is much more accepting of poker as a casual hobby.

Q: What was the first poker blog you read?
I first entered the world of blogdom through Paul Phillips Paul led me to Wil Wheaton, who at the time had the coolest weekly online poker game evar.

Q: How would you describe your playing style

Q: Who would be at your 6-handed SNG?
This has always been a tough question, I would want a fun time, so Antonio E, Phil L, Lacey J (rawr), Tripjax , and Jordan.

Aside: I found this post where tripjax bested me heads up in 2006 at the mook.

Q: Between Nihilism and Masochism, which do you think better describes why you play poker? (Submitted by Iakaris)
No question about it....masochism.

Q: What is the last book you read?
River of Doubt by Candice Millard, based on this.

Tell us a little know fact about yourself.
I wanted to be an actor growing up, but I wasn't very good. Then I wanted to make films, but that was too hard. I became an IT guy cause it it kind of fell into my lap. Oh Im lazy by the way, but you know that.

Now I know why Mook stopped doing this. Its a pain. Maybe next week's winner will follow suit was fun.

ED Note: I just noticed that I started this blog 5 years ago on this coming Sunday, holy sneyekees!
