A new beginning??

Well, time to get back to poker, huh? Well, not quite yet....the title today is relevant for a couple reasons:

1. You may recall my last blog when I talked about my father, and how he hasn't been there for me...well, it's kinda odd being that he and nobody else in his family is aware of this blog, but he may be changing his ways...though too early to tell. It was approximately 2 weeks ago when I received a friend request on Facebook(nothing out of the ordinary, i've received this one threw me for a loop. It was from my father's new wife, who I am not to fond of either. I struggled with the idea of accepting it or rejecting it...this went on for a few days. After talking this over with some good friends, I decided to do what was extremely hard, I accepted. Thinking that if this was my father trying to reach out to me, I did not want to reject him the way he had me, and thought that this is his last chance. Now since accepting this request, I have not heard anything more(not a big surprise), but again, maybe it's too early to tell.

2. As some of you may, or may not know, I have been backed by someone I met through the forums on 2+2 for the last 6 mos or so....the relationship was a good one, and I really appreciated the help I was given. Up until recently, I had run up some makeup with him, and things were bleak. However, just the other day, I came into a little money, and was able to pay off my debt to him, and still had enough left over to go out on my own. So once again I am financing myself, which I have to say, is a GREAT feeling!!! The last couple days I have managed to fair pretty well, and am up just over $130 playing the 90s, some micro MTTs, and some cash games. The best results came from cash games. But these are not the cash games most would expect from me....unless you REALLY know me... These cash games are at the Razz tables on FTP...I am playing well, and for the most part, drawing well, and see a bright future in this as well...

But don't start cheering yet fellow 90 man grinders, you are not rid of me yet ;) I will still be playing the 90s and the cash games, as well as the micro MTTs.

Even though I am on my own now, I am open to discussions about anyone wanting to stake me in some MTTs. They can be micro, low, or mid stakes...doesn't matter to me. If you or anyone is interested in doing this, feel free to message me here, on skype(josh.orent), or on Facebook( I am also considering selling action in the next MiniFTOPS coming up soon, not sure on what events I will be playing at this time, or the schedule for that matter, but again, I'm open to offers/suggestions.

Well, that's all for now, I need to be getting ready for work, and heading that way soon. I hope everyone enjoys Valentine's Day, and all are safe!!

To all my good friends out there, I love you all!!


  1. You're a great poker player and coach. Coming from someone who believes in you.

    Remember to have faith even when you're blind and all hope is gone.. like in Blood Sport when Frank has to fight blind...

    You told me to use any tactic that works, never to commit yourself to one style, to keep an open mind!
