HellsColdDay 3: Return of the Rounder

monkeyHappy late Thanksgiving to all my US of A readers! I'm thankful for a great many things this year, not least of all you, the happy shiny poker people. Thanks so much for reading this little blog.

It is because of you guys and gals that I've made it into my third year! Hence the triliogy-esque post title. I still have a thing or two to say, so I'll do my best to keep the posts coming on a regular basis. As always, I do take requests. Feel free to email me or DM me on Twitter (@Grundy) if there is a topic you'd like to explored.

Long-time readers know that I took a leave from on-line poker a while back due to the US government pushing legislation against Internet gambling. I'd like to annouce that my leave was officially a hiatus and not a "quitting." I'm back playing Full Tilt and other game rooms may not be far behind.

This decision was prompted by one of the few wins to our cause as poker players. The Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act (UIGEA) is a mute point until this June, which is a substantial postponement. I'd like to thanks the Poker Players Alliance and those working towards the same goals for lobbying for the postponement. You can check out the PPA's press release here. With any luck, we'll get a break in June as well.

Until then, lets live in the present, I'll see you in the card rooms.
