Working On Your Addictions
If you are like most poker players, or for that matter most people, you probably have some addictions. Some of these addictions may not be too troublesome, but others can prove to be bad for your health.
PokerStars Team Online member André "acoimbra" Coimbra talks about battling the two addictions he has been trying to beat the most, coffee and chocolate, in a PokerStars blog titled, Working On My Addictions.
Coimbra's coffee addiction took a turn for the worse before it took a turn for the better when he moved from shorter-session multi-table sit-n-gos to bigger sessions of scheduled tournaments. His chocolate addiction seems to rare its ugly face whenever a series of bad beats or a big downswing occurs.
Gus Hansen On a Roll Again?
In last week's BlogNews Weekly, we talked about how Gus Hansen was potentially beginning to turn his fortune around in the nosebleed games at Full Tilt Poker.
The good news for Hansen and his fans, he seems to have found some winning ways. The Full Tilt Poker blog post titled Gus Hansen Up $600K Since Saturday discusses Hansen's $300,000 win on Saturday followed by his $80,000 win on Sunday. At the time that the blog was written, Hansen was up another $220,000 on Monday, soaring his total profit to $600,000 in less than three days.
