Maybe put this in the 'Best of Blonde' section now to save time?

Thoroughly enjoyable Mr MC. Touches on some Degen issues that I, and i'm sure more than a few others on here, can relate to.

Hi james, pretty sure quite a few of us dabbled in that 20/40 nlh game on tribeca and no1 was even close to rolled for it, lol

Looking back at some of your mistakes now do your seriously regret anything or do you see it as though those experiences have moulded you into the player/person you are today?

sick well btw, :-)

Pretty sure this is the longest response i have ever gotten to a question....

Really enthralling stuff man, it's funny the times i met you now fitting in where you were with your poker at the time, i have to say whether you are doing it in or winning it all i noticed no difference in you as a person so kudos for that!

 'I obviously had some inbuilt tilt button that couldn't take a loss'


This a briliant piece mate. I think the quote above is the single most important thing that gamblers/poker players need to master. I have worked in the gambling industry and gambled for the last 20 years and some of the cleverest and shrewdest people I know have gone skint because they just couldnt get their heads around the fact that you are gonna get it wrong a lot of the time and lose. The long run is the only true judge yet its a failure in most to try to avenge a loss str8 away.

I can relate to so much of what you have written above from my younger days too and the turning point for me was when I had it drummed into me that 'you should never gamble more than you can mentally afford to lose' and the way you describe how you acted and your feelings after the losses is a good example of why thats true. Noy only do you feel bad for losing but it starts to affect your ability to work at the same level as before if the losses scar you upstairs.

I'm glad you turned the corner and thanks for telling your story.

Damn.

Like James said I am probably the only person that knows this whole story and I have heard it chronologically over the last 4-5 years but it really made me sad reading this.

I will NEVER forget when I met James in this  >>>http://pokerdb.thehendonmob.com/event.php?a=r&n=16363<<< tourney. He was super loud and cheerful and I thought he was cool. We spoke on msn and I remember me spying on him online to see what he was playing. I was killing 2/4nl as this was the golden days and I took a look at what he was playing. 150/300limit. I could not believe my eyes.

Not gonna lie you had a lot of heart but I think the near bustoness took away all that and now you use your brain instead. I actually remember the exact moment you sent me a screenshot of the 88 vs KK hand and I actually still talk about it to this day for some reason, epic hand indeed.

The most epic well ever, keep it going James and see you when I get back.
