The Truth About Waffles -- Really
Okay -- I am a pretty honest guy. Outside of games like poker, I rarely misrepresent anything. Therefore, I feel that it is my duty to verify and make public a dirty little secret within the poker blogger world: Waffles has become a damn good blogger tournament player.

It seems like some bloggers have had their day in the sun in 2008. lucko was a monster earlier in the year. lj had a great run. Other bloggers have had one big moment or another. But ... in the last half of 2008, who can deny that Waffles has upped his game, constantly challenged for the top position in individual tournaments and cumulative competitions, flourished while having a bounty over his head, and constantly charged out toward the top of the chipleaders in most blogger tournaments in which he has entered?

He has adopted a new, aggressive style that has served him very well. He has also shown the ability to make the right plays when they count and to almost always be one one the last players standing if he reaches the final table. I don't know exactly what he did to change his game in such a dramatic fashion, but whatever he did, it is working.

Earlier today, I listened as a colleague at work talked about taking a fresh look at people and not allowing past reputations to totally color our view of them. I believe that it is time to do that with Waffles. He is no longer Awfuls. He has become a monster. Fear him ... or at least give him his due. He has proven it at the table -- which is where it really counts.

He's obviously stolen my mojo, as I now suck at all things poker on a regular basis. Maybe I should pay Waffles to teach me how to be break-even.
