Doyle Brunson Contemplates Big Move

Finally got back from Costa Rica a few days ago. Every time I visit that country, I am more and more impressed. Just the sheer beauty is enough to make the trip worthwhile but the more modern parts make it even better. The shops are nice and the food is on a par with most major cities. Factor in the beach is a short distance from San Jose and the fishing is terrific makes it a good destination.

Las Vegas is becoming more and more a not very desirable place for a poker pro to live. There are simply isn’t very many high limit games anywhere. What’s with the economy, the world wide tournaments, and the internet poker, the outlook for live cash games are bleak. Poker is on the verge of making a very significant change and in my opinion very bad change.

I’m considering moving to California; at least there are a few mid level games that are played regularly.  I am glad the college bowl games are over. This is the 1st year in a long time where the favorite covered the spread. I guess the line makers finally figured out that the underdogs had been winning the side for a long time, now maybe the guys that make the numbers will notice that a big percentage of the N.F.L games are going  over the projected total points scored each game.

I made a very large bet on who would win the Super Bowl; I had Indy, New Orleans and New England. My opponent had N.Y Giants, Pitt and N.Y Jets.  I really liked my bet and they the Saints and Colts both got  knocked out in the 1st round and now the Jets are leading the Pats as I write this. Gulp!

I’ve had lots of personal problems the last couple of months and I hope 2011 is going to change things. I’m still in the process of making my New year resolutions. Anyway a belated Happy New year to Everyone.
