playing poker and teaching science: A HORSE with no name

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?

A HORSE with no name

One of the positive by-products of Party Poker shutting down was that I finally deposited real money into my Full Tilt Poker account, and now I have access to one-table HORSE sit-and-goes.

As a professional educator in the public schools, it’s my job to keep an eye out for those students who obviously have an attention deficit disorder and have yet to be diagnosed. Therefore it’s pretty easy for me to know that I have ADD. It was never diagnosed because in nine out of 10 cases, a good whuppin works every bit as well as Ridalin for making you work harder on paying attention and staying out of trouble in school.

My father had a great ADD cure holding his pants up and he wasn’t afraid to use it!

My ADD is usually under control, but I have a short attention span if I get too bored so a game of HORSE is a great way to break up the Hold Em monotony. That, and I just enjoy being able to understand optimal strategy and starting hands and compete well in all the poker games.

I would like to be thought of as a good poker player, not just a good Hold Em player.

So far I’ve played two HORSE sit-and-goes. In the first one I bubbled out in the third round of Hold Em when my pocket kings were outdrawn by a suited 89, but in the second HORSE sit-and-go I won first place. Not only did I win, but I enjoyed the game like few Hold Em games I’ve played recently.

Maybe those lawmakers knew what they were doing after all.

Anyone buying that??

I'm not a very good HORSE player. Omaha Hi/Lo gets me. It's hard for me to play and think "small" hands. Razz would give me trouble too.

I play at Pokerstars, which lets you play HORSE stuff without investing money into your account.
