Feel free to use this thread to say you checked in.

I am moving into a new house in the suburbs (urban enthusiasts love to call the place "unplanned sprawl") and will likely spend the rest of my days there (a new build).

For some reason I renewed my Bills season tickets with a new house a baby and another one on the way.

I am just rambling at this point but any feel free to chime in.

Kc, you check out Draftkings yet? Anyone you know playing it in the UK? It's on its way out in a lot of states here, but opening up in your area.

Sadly it was deemed illegal in New York.

Just another thing I can be pissed at the government about. At least this issue is relatively harmless (to me at least)

I think most of the sites still operate in New York. I know Draftkings and some of the small sites do. Fanduel does too I think but I'm not sure if people can deposit.

Window may be closing soon whenever the case comes before a judge and if DFS sites lose as well.

Bigger problem with DFS is that the games are becoming much more difficult to beat. Higher rake than poker and less edge due to all the public info. Contrarian angle can help but even that may be getting solved...

PoketJokers,

What area is your new house in?

I fish down there in the fall and spring for steelhead as it only takes me an hour to reach Queenstown border crossing.

Average price for a detached house in Toronto area is reaching $1M. Just ludicriius.

My life update:
  • moved onto baseball and horse betting in 2013. Don't play much poker nowadays but still like the game
  • got a new job as director of security. more jobs than people in my field.
  • going to vegas in August for a hackers conference. Gonna play some poker then.

Oh ya, one more thing: Bill's Suck ..... but I'm looking forward to NFL season.
