playing poker and teaching science: Just sitting and going.

I'm a middle school science teacher, wrestling coach, poker player, scuba diver, aikido black belt, amateur writer, and student of life. In the past I have tried to give back a little by volunteering at a children's home in Belmopan, Belize, Central America. I also love Frosted Flakes. I have taken a year sabbatical from my teaching position in order to sail the Caribbean. Does that sound crazy to you?

Just sitting and going.

I’ve come to the conclusion that I really love to play in one-table tournaments. The SNG (sit and go) format is a good one for me and I’ve become pretty good at them. It’s not a huge cash cow and I can probably make more money playing in a ring game, but I enjoy the competition and I can hop into a $1 SNG on UltimateBet and not have to worry about losing money if I happen to get called away.

Enter Royal Vegas Casino.

I’ve already mentioned, Royal Vegas offers step tourneys that lead up to a seat in the World Series Of Poker worth more than $10,000. They give you your first $10 free of charge so the potential is there to receive a trip to Vegas and an entry to the WSOP completely gratis.

Do you hear Bill Murray’s voice? Something about a Cinderella story?

Free money, free step tourneys, and a chance to advance to the WSOP all sound like fun to me.

Here are my results so far:
1. First SNG – 3rd place…..rats!
2. Second SNG – 3rd place…..rats!
3. Third SNG – 3rd place…..rats!
4. Fourth SNG – 2rd place…..Boo Yaa!

I’m on to the second level and I still have more than $7 free money in my account because of two other $1 SNG’s I placed in. As a matter of fact, I have not placed below 3rd in my last seven SNG’s on this site.

The adventure continues!

Thanks for reading.

PS: Don’t play Omaha 8 while you’re in the phone because EVERY hand looks playable until you think about it….down 8 big bets in 20 minutes!
