25% off poker lessons!

I have decided to re-open my coaching services.

Now is the perfect time to improve your game at a huge discount, as I'm offering poker lessons for 25% off!!! Improve your game significantly so when online poker sorts itself out you can annihilate your opponents!

I have decided that I will offer my services at 25% off of what my hourly coaching rate was when I last coached in 2010, which was $250 per hour. It will now be $187.50 per hour. I think this is a great value and you have the added bonus of knowing that I'm a considerably improved poker player since the last time I was coaching students.

My coaching lessons are two hours in length and I feel like a minimum of 5 lessons (10 hours) is ideal for being able to fully convey my knowledge to you and have a significant impact on improving your game. If you choose to purchase a 5 lesson package, I will give you even a further discount of 20% off of the already reduced hourly fee of $187.50 on the entire lesson package. That's only $150 per hour for quality poker lessons! That's a total of 40% off my normal coaching rate!!!

My specialties are NLHE 6 Max cash games and mass tabling. I can help boost your # of tables played by at least a table or two by helping you understand how to use a few secret things that I've discovered in my VPP quest this year... I have slightly over 930k VPPs so far in 2011.

If you would like to contact me about getting lessons feel free to private message me on Cardrunners.com or email me at "Duckslayer2k@gmail.com" and I'd be glad to respond.

Jets get first win of the season!

Last night the Winnipeg Jets got their first win of the 2011-12 NHL season!  They ended up beating the Pittsburgh Penguins.  The Pens were missing their top two players, Malkin and Crosby as they were out with injuries.

I still think they will miss the playoffs by far but at least there are worse teams in the league at this point.  Hell, people in Winnipeg even gave the Jets a standing ovation after the home opener where they got their ass kicked 1-5.  Only in Canada, lol.

N.D. Pheasant hunting opener!

Hey everyone, sorry for the lack of updates.  I've been super busy lately as it's hunting season and I've been keeping busy in Canada as well.  My girlfriend, Liz, ended up visiting me in Canada the last week of September. We took lots of pictures but she has the camera, so I'll post some pics once I get the pictures from her.

Last weekend, October 8-11th I went pheasant hunting with my dad, brother, and some other friends.  We went out to Western ND and it was a really great trip.  I had a lot of fun even though most of the days had light rain in the morning.

We didn't get quite as many birds as some other years but we still got quite a few.  Between myself, my dad, and  my brother we got 17 pheasants, a few sharptail grouse, and about 8 ducks.

Hope everyone is doing well!  Here are a few pics from the trip:

PokerStars VIP dinner

This past Tuesday night I had dinner with a PokerStars representative, Rich, and 5 other online players who were invited.  We ended up eating at Hy's Steakhouse in downtown Winnipeg and the food was awesome!  I had also went to that restaurant a few weeks prior with my girlfriend.

It was a really fun dinner and Rich was extremely friendly.  We were encouraged to provide suggestions in regards to how PS could improve our online poker experience.  I had a few ideas so I brought those up to Rich and he was very interested in what I had to say.

I think it was pretty cool PokerStars did this as it was a very expensive dinner (probably around $100 per plate) and really nice to actually meet someone from Stars in person.  I'm extremely proud and happy to have decided to play on PokerStars primarily in 2011 and they are without a doubt the best online poker site in the world.

Unfortunately, I lost the poker hand for Winnipeg Jets NHL tickets!!!  We were all dealt a hand, then we all went all-in and the board was dealt... I was dealt T6o.  I flopped bottom pair but ended up losing to a King high flush!  What a beat, haha.  I'm sure I'll scrape up some Jets tickets anyways as I'd really like to see a game or two at least.

Like I mentioned before my girlfriend, Liz, came up to Winnipeg to visit me for about a week.  She was up here at the end of September.  We took a lot of great pictures but most of them are on the camera she brought back to the states so I'll have to post the pictures when she sends them to me.

I have 70k VPPs left to go until I hit SNE!  I am shooting to be a SNE before the month of October is finished.  It will be nice to get that $20k bonus once I hit it.
