End of year blog
dnagardi, Dec 31 2018
Come on where are those blogs, I'm particularly interested in poker volume/profit. How did you guys, who still play in 2018, end the year with?
I rarely play so my results are:
online: -150$ / 600 hands, NL50
offline: +50$ / 100 hands NL200
sports betting: -200$
Food for thought

I remember I saved these lines from LP many years ago. Time to put them right back in.
"I contend that we are both atheists. I just believe in one fewer god than you do. When you understand why you dismiss all the other possible gods, you will understand why I dismiss yours"
"Religion is regarded by the common people as true, by the wise as false, and by the rulers as useful."
"You're basically killing each other to see who's got the better imaginary friend"
"Men never commit evil so fully and joyfully as when they do it for religious convictions"
"When I was a kid I used to pray every night for a new bicycle. Then I realised that the Lord doesn't work that way so I stole one and asked Him to forgive me."
"Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent. Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent. Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil? Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God?"
"And if there were a God, I think it very unlikely that He would have such an uneasy vanity as to be offended by those who doubt His existence"
"The fact that a believer is happier than a skeptic is no more to the point than the fact that a drunken man is happier than a sober one"
"I still say a church steeple with a lightning rod on top shows a lack of confidence"
"Philosophy is questions that may never be answered. Religion is answers that may never be questioned."
Poll: Do you believe in god?

Long time no blog...
I've started playing poker 10 years ago, reading the beginners articles on LP with the help of Filthy_au ex wc3 player. Grinded hard, learnt a lot from you, was a slight winner at NL200, made decent money to support myself while finishing university. Had the dream that when I turn 21 I go to vegas, and make some big money but that shattered when black friday kicked in and got most of my funds frozen. Luckily I've got all of it back since then, but never really continued playing poker since.
Now I'm 27, working as a structural engineer here in Budapest, Hungary. Occasionally still playing poker live and online but just for fun.
Now together with my family we are doing a US trip celebrating my father's 60th birthday and their 30th marriage anniversary with my mother. New York - Washington and.... Las Vegas trip
During the day we will be sightseeing but when the night comes I will be hitting up the LV casinos, probably grinding the NL 1-3$ cash games. And this is where I would like to hear your advice on which casino to go to, which is the nicest, where are the softest games? Is there something I need to know, like is there a mandatory tipping when winning a pot? Any need to know advices?
Also would love to hear from you guys the attractions we should see in LV with my family
