Web Design by Committee

Well, I've moved a step closer to my dream blog, thanks to the help of Donkey Puncher. Thank you to TripJax who also offered to help. The next step, which, I imagine, will be conceivably more difficult, is to get that banner to cover the entire top area instead of being an inset pic. That said, etards can't be choosers.

When it rains, it pours in blogger land. I signed on last night to find GCox and Trip in the middle of two tournaments. Trip was playing an 18 person SNG, in which he placed 2nd turning his $5 Poker Stars bankroll into considerably more. GCox was having a tough night, so he did what any player would do...enter a $20 600+ player MTT. Last I checked, he was down to less than 30 people, and was well in the money.

I, on the other hand, played a 4-person Heads-Up SNG on Poker Stars and didn't make it past match #1. For anyone who hasn't heard of these arrangements, it's like a mini Heads Up Challenge. Four players enter and play heads-up. The two winners of the first heads-up matches play heads-up against each other. For a $5 buy-in, you can win $20. It's akin to entering a $5 HU SNG, winning, and rolling the profits over into a $10 HU SNG. The only difference is the lack of vig (casino fee) on the second game. If you like HU matches, this is your thing. Just ask Veneno.

Unfortunately, while I was initially outplaying my opponent, he began to catch cards and suddently I couldn't get anything going. After he took me out, I was trying to decide what to play. I've finished my VPP and PSO promotions and am awaiting 1 gift certificate for $50 to Best Buy in the mail. I've already received my gift certificate from one of the promotions, but since they send you their items from some generic company name in Ontario, I couldn't tell which one sent it. Either way, my new TV is going to have a nice discount thanks to PSO and VPP. So far, I have $300 in Best Buy gift certificates and another $50 on the way. If you are interested in free gift certificates or need poker supplies, including chips, tables, and quality cards, check those sites out. And if you are kind enough, you can even use my links and referral code HighOnPoker for PSO.

I decided to play on Titan, since I still am working off my 100% bonus there. I've already earned $70 out of the $240, but I have a ways to go. Fortunately, there is no time limit on this promo, and I've already finished the PSO promo for Titan (netting myself another $50 Best Buy gift certificate). I also have been really enjoying Titan's .25/.50 NL game. I lost about 1/2 of my $100 at Titan playing 2/4 and 3/6 (which is admittedly too high for $100, but not too high when you consider my total bankroll). I've been inching my way back to even there with the NL game. So far, I've posted at least three winning sessions in a row. Last night was for a whopping $5.50, which covered my 4-p HU SNG at Poker Stars. So, it was an even night, but not necessarily uneventful. At least I gots me some poker action.

I am now trying to decide the next stop in the HighOnPoker Bonus Whore World Tour. I've already completed (deep breath) Titan, Noble, Bodog, Absolute, Paradise, Royal Vegas, Full Tilt, Ultimate Bet, and I think one or two others that I can't remember and are no longer offered. All that is left is Pacific Poker (on PSO or VPP), Hollywood Poker (VPP), Carribean Sun (PSO), and Gaming Club Poker (PSO). I have also been thinking of trying to sign up through PokerRoom or GoldenPalace through the sites. I've had accounts at both of those locations, but I haven't used them for a while and would ideally want to start a new account with my new address anyway. However, these things probably work by Social Security Number or name, so this might be a problem. When I get real desperate for freebies, maybe I'll get wifey Kim to start signing up for sites...

Tomorrow, I have to attend a Court conference in Nassau County, Long Island. As a result, I plan on going back to LI tonight. Wifey Kim will be in NYC, so I'll be missing her (sincerely). But if you can't be with the one you love, love the one you are with...Poker. I'll see you around tonight, but probably without a headset.

Killian, you have what you want, give the people the poker! <---What movie? Anyone?

That's all for now. I've got much work

Is there any way you can make the logo more clear? I really like it, especially if it was more clear.

I would change the background color of the top from green to black and then center the logo.

Yeah, the letters are a bit thin, but I love the font and colors. My new goal is to find a way to make it take up that whole upper area. I also wouldn't mind tweaking some colors all over the place, but right now, the banner is phase 2 in Operation Pretty Blog. Yes I said pretty.

Let me see what I can do for you Jordan. I'll play around with a couple of things and get back to you.

That said, it will probably be tonight before I can mess with some things...

Thanks all. Is there any way to change the size of the pic. I took a class a LOOOOONG time ago, in which we had to make a webpage, and I know there is some way to choose the dimensions of a pic, but I don't know if it'll stretch the pic to fit a certain size. Any advice would be helpful.

Hey - 3 red 6's is cheating! Better make one of those black. Better yet - get a 4-color deck and put in a blue or green one!

Nice graphic. Can't wait to see how the rest of the blog transforms. I'm toying around with an idea for my blog header as well. Getting tired of my old blogger template.
