I haven’t blogged since August 10th. Why? Because during August, I devoted twice as much time as I normally do to playing the Eastern Poker Tour’s (EPT) no limit hold em poker tournaments in preparation for playing in its $30K Championships being held Aug. 28th and Aug. 29th. I had worked hard throughout the year to earn points and to win no limit hold em tournaments in order to qualify to play in the $30K Championships. I had played in both the Central Mass and Framingham regions, and qualified for Points and Wins in both regions. The best way that I could think of to prepare for the $30K Championships and maintain (hopefully improve 🙂 ) my rank was to practice, practice, practice.
That extra time cut into time I normally spend working on projects for clients, so, when I was back in the office, I chose to complete work for clients, and then there was no time to blog…either I was off to play another no limit hold em tournament or it was time to go to bed.
So, did my efforts pay off?

Why was I so jazzed about these tournaments?
Because they are only played a couple of times per year, you have to qualify (can’t buy your way in), and the grand prize is a WSOP Main Event package worth $12,000! Who doesn’t want to play in the WSOP?
