Lots of reading, lots of shivering

I don’t think I’ve played a full 100 hands so far this week. Firstly, I’ve been reading as much of Small Stakes No Limit Hold’em as I coud possible cram in. Which is not a lot. I’m only at page 56 out of 300+ or something. Secondly, weather’s been way too good to sit in front ofRead More
