In ranking my hobbies, Poker would be right there at the top.  Fortunately (or unfortunately) the nearest casino is  4+ hour car ride. Las Vegas, the Mecca of Poker,a 3 hour flight. So I don’t play often, helping keep my priorities more or less “in check.”  When I do play, I have a blast.   I also find it therapeutic.  I’ve  learned  about myself through poker – how I handle emotions, approach decisions, and deal with difficult “players.”  I also see the poker table as a perfect oval microcosm for life.

I’ve written about some of these “Life-Psychology-Poker” themes in Poker Pro Magazine and other outlets.  See below for a few of my recent articles that can be downloaded.  Hope to see you at the tables soon (odds are I’ll be watching).
