Happy New Year! I wish you guys all the best in 2012.
You guys probably thought I ditched the blogging, with fewer and fewer posts every month. But actually, I want to write even more about poker, as you will see from one of my New Year's resolutions...
DOUBLEFLY'S NEW YEAR RESOLUTIONS:
1. WRITE A POKER BOOK. That's right! That's my big news. After scouring the market for a half-decent book on online poker and not finding it, I decided to write one. The subject could be pretty boring, but I think I can add some DoubleFly touches to make it very entertaining. I had talked about writing a poker book when I first started this blog, and I can't believe it's been 3 years already. Well now I'm pretty motivated. Volume 1 (yes - there will be multiple volumes) will mostly be geared towards the noobs, but there should be stuff in there a lot of people will have missed or had not thought about. The later volumes will have more advanced topics that you should find interesting. You may be thinking that writing the book will take away a little time from writing in my blog. But I think I can post some excerpts from the book, and get your opinion on it, so that can be win-win. My goal by the end of the year is to "substantially complete" volume 1. Stay tuned.
2. GET UNDER 200 POUNDS. I got as low as 225, but over the holidays, I gained 12 pounds. :-( So it's back to the low carb diet for me (starting tomorrow). Starting at 237, I want to get back to under 200 (which is what I weighed in college). I'm pretty sure I can get this done. I'm going to try and add a little more exercise to my routine this time around.
3. SEE MORE OF THESE FINE UNITED STATES WITH THE FAMILY. Now that we're all settled, I want to take more "work" vacations and take the family. One of the nice things about writing a book and playing poker is that you can do that from anywhere. We started the family road trips with a nice short visit to San Antonio and had a pretty good time (later post). We have a 2 month long trip planned for next summer back on the East coast, and we may try to squeeze something in over Spring Break and a cruise during the warmer months. Stay tuned for trip reports.
