Born in New Brunswick, I've bounced all over from Halifax to Toronto to Beijing and various points in between. In addition to sports (obviously), my primary interests are movies (The Long Goodbye #1), books (Catch-22, Don Quixote, The World According to Garp), music (mostly rock, but a little bit of everything), and food & travel (these two are inextricably linked in my mind). Top 3 trips: Vietnam, Copenhagen, Madrid.

Guy goes all in with something like Jack-Five off suit and goes up against Ace-10. I watch as he hits the river and stays alive. I go out within the next few hands and finish in 8th out of about 500 people. They paid the top 7.
