playing poker and teaching science: Big win

Location: Indiana, United States

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?

Big win

A huge win for the wrestling Huskies last night as we knocked off the team ranked 15th in the state by a score of 43-34!

We take a strategy with our team that occasionally works well for poker players. We don't try to get the team or individual wrestlers ranked in the state. We know that that ranking and 50 cents will get you a cup of coffee and little else. Okay, $4 at Starbucks, but the thought is the same; you still have to walk out there and wrestle. If you're flying under the radar and a team (or individual) takes you for granted because you're not recognized by some anonymous ranking organization, you might sneak up and pull off a win.

It happens in poker all the time. An amateur player, unknown to the "name" players comes in a walks away with first place because he is taken for granted AND because he has done his homework on the "name" in the game.

It happens in poker. Last night it happened in high school wrestling. GO HUSKIES!
