Lightning Strikes reached 100,000 page views today. In my mind it is kind of amazing that I started this blog in the first place and that it has continued on through thick and thin.

Back when online poker was in its heyday, I posted mostly poker content, including some hand analyses. I sometimes wrote posts that had nothing to do with poker. Over the years, and especially since Black Friday, the blog has focused on many disparate topics. I have posted less frequently -- usually due to my busy life. A challenging job and  three kids will do that to you.

Thanks for looking. The next 100,000 views have begun!

Well done. Alas, I'm a little further behind. Using advanced econometric forecasting models, I have determined that my blog should reach 100,000 page views just before the 2022 WSOP.

Congrats Light, of course 90,000 of your hits came from your erstwhile girlfriend in Orlando.

Sir, not once did I see you mention how a certain other blogger was the KEY reason you even got to 100k

Also, congrats. May the next 100k come quicker than 6 years and 2 months

Come on, grrouchie, would you really expect an ingrate like Lightning to thank the blogger most responsible for hitting 100K? And by that, I am of course referring to ME.

Sir, you are an inspiration... Maybe it's just me, but I truly feel we've got real blogger mentor-protégé thing going on here. In a word: "magic" . . . If you had a newsletter, I'd subscribe to it as well. Glad to be along for the ride.

I could not POSSIBLY be more bored with the "sockroll" / Comp-dolla$ updates on RTP . . . Thanks to you and Josie for the banter over there . . . at least I have something interesting to read during my lunch!
