Bring on the Blogger Tourney
I am signed up for the PokerStars blogger tourney. Despite having played very little no-limit recently, and no tourneys at all for the past months or so, I am confident I will do well. I am going to rely on a stratagem I've code-named "Operation Ludicrous Dumb Luck." Heh heh heh.
Seriously, I've blogged before that tourneys aren't my specialty, but they are a lot of fun with the right crowd. So I expect tonight to be a hoot even if I get my virtual butt handed to me.
My username on PokerStars is LanceyH, after Lancey Howard from The Cincinnati Kid, and my PokerStars image is a parrot head, which is cropped from the logo for Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville bars and restaurants.
Minor Site Changes
In other news, I changed over to Blogger commenting (I'd been using Haloscan before). My understanding is that Haloscan deletes comments after 6 months or so, whereas Blogger doesn't. So in switching, I lost all the comments on my first hundred posts or so :-( but I would have lost them eventually anyway, and this seems a better decision for the long term.
I also deleted the Absolute Poker banner from my site. I had been a bit of a cheerleader for AP 5 or 6 months ago, when they were handing out a ton of bonuses. But about 2 months ago or so they changed the requirements for the bonuses and now they're just too hard to clear. Better bloggers than I are affiliates for the top-quality sites, so I am going to retire from the affiliate business, which was none too profitable for me anyway.
Finally, I tweaked my template code so that my posts end with "posted by JD." This is so if B (Mrs. Cheap Thrills) wants to post sometime, you'll be able to tell it's her.
Looking forward to playing with everyone tonight.
