What's a July Grindathon? This month I've decided to catch up on my poker hours and work a little harder for US poker legislation as well. My plan is to play 12 hours per day for 28 out of the 31 days of July. I'll be donating a percentage of any profits to the PPA, and posting daily on facebook pages and twitter to support the cause. I invite you all to join me in this summer madness and fight for poker rights through your play and posts.
Session 1: I got off to a good start by literally playing all of last night - it was light out when I started at 7 PM and it was bright out when I quit at 7 AM. The game was mostly $2/$5 No Limit, with maybe twenty hands of Pot Limit Omaha thrown into the mix. My results and overall play were good, despite one catastrophic fold with pocket tens when I was offered 4-to-1 on the river. I literally talked myself out of calling the river bet, which leads us to today's topic: talking at the poker table.
I'm a huge fan of talking at the poker table. That's one big thing that online play is missing - genuine human contact and conversation. I have a lot to say about this (and a slightly amusing annecdote from last night), but I'd like to know what you think about it.
