2009-2011 : a retrospective photoblog

December 3, 2011 | 10:58 am | JCarver

The past three years I’ve been very lucky to have visited a ton of cool places with a lot of awesome people.  Browsing through some of my old folders, inspired by BJ Nemeth’s awesome photography work, I felt like it would be cool to share some of my personal photos and memories in a [...]

dallas trip report and some news

April 6, 2011 | 2:40 am | JCarver

The last few months have been pretty unusual.  Typically, I fill my time with poker, both online cash and live tournaments – but this hasn’t been the case at all in 2011.  Since PCA, I haven’t played much poker or traveled, staying outside the whole poker scene in general.  I needed a break after the [...]

monte carlo trip report

May 7, 2009 | 4:21 pm | JCarver

I haven’t really written too much in awhile.  As typical with me, my standard super hot/cold on ideas/activities has kind of taken me away from writing, but I’m getting back into it again and the overdue trip report for EPT Monte Carlo seems like a good place to start.
I haven’t really been doing too much [...]

a blog wholly about POKER what?!?!?

March 23, 2009 | 5:44 am | JCarver

I haven’t forgotten that I have not one, but two “TO BE CONTINUED” posts below this one.  Well, this isn’t THE STUNNING CONCLUSION to either (but hopefully it won’t be a start of a new one), but I do have 3 rather long theory posts in various states of completion sitting waiting for me to [...]

pca post-mortem

January 12, 2009 | 2:47 am | JCarver

I got back from Atlantis on Saturday afternoon. It was an extremely fun week or so spent amongst friends in a pretty awesome resort. It was my first time there, as I did Aussie Millions last year instead, so I wasn’t quite sure what to expect, but it’s a pretty sweet place and [...]

Back home again

December 19, 2008 | 3:38 pm | JCarver

This week has went really fast, and it’s been strange.  On sunday, I cashed a few tournaments, the biggest being 4th in the 100r turbo for $10k or so.  Tuesday I spent hanging out with JohnnyBax and Sheets.  They’re both really cool, down to earth guys who know a lot about tournament poker.  I hung [...]

Secret’s Out – I’m a PokerVT Pro

November 25, 2008 | 9:59 pm | JCarver

I’m very excited to announce that I’ve been signed as a PokerVT Pro.  For the past few months, I’ve been working hard with the PokerVT Team towards my launch and helping to drive PokerVT towards success.  I’m really, really excited about all I can do with the VT platform in terms of teaching.  For those [...]

my last night in las vegas

November 20, 2008 | 4:06 am | JCarver

I spent the past week staying at Bellagio.  It’s one of my favorite places I’ve ever been to.  The rooms are awesome, the staff is great, the place itself has a vibe to it that I really like, and I really enjoy the food.  That last part doesn’t mean much, since I eat a narrower [...]
