No estaba muerto, andaba de parranda.

Hey there.

Decided it is about time that I get back to playing MtG. Kids are now 9 and 7 and the younger one brought a Minecraft Card Game yesterday, so I figured I might as well introduce them to Magic.

Have been extremely busy at work and so I've focused the majority of my free time to playing FIFA 15 (Made Div 2 online) and FIFA 16, and not much else.

I was planning on playing the Main Event this year, but now have a scheduling conflict that I cannot move. Hopefully I can play at least a preliminary event.

Other than that, moved to San Antonio recently for work and became season ticket holder for San Antonio FC (owned by the NBA Spurs). Plan is to take them from Div III to Div I in less than 6 years. Average attendance is ~7,000, so great start. (Stadium sits ~8,300).

So... I just learned that there are no longer Core Sets, so I guess I'll just start with the latest set. What else? Is there a PTQ coming to San Antonio soon? What format is in play this season?

Cheers,

What's Up?

Just realized there's a GP in San Antonio next week. Anybody coming?

Anything newsworthy over the last 9 months or so?

Been super busy at work and still addicted to FIFA 17. Currently in division 3 online.

Apparently there is a 'legal' place to play poker in San Antonio. The Alamo Cardhouse. Have not checked them out but wanting to.

Hard Brag. Went to the SuperBowl. Amazing game. Needless to say the plan was to watch Cowboys vs Raiders, but at the end we decided not to resell the tickets and just enjoy it.

Other than that, have not played MTGO in about 8 months, and live in years.

Cheers,

For the Aether Revolt Sealed Events, do they only play with the second set? Or do they play with both sets?

Both.

There's Hunter Burton Memorial in Ft Worth this weekend if you're still living in Dallas. Then GP SA, and GP Mexico City.

checked out that poker room website

Assuming it's legit / legal (which I think it is) it's probably only profitable for cash games if you grind there 4-6 days a week as a job, and then only if the cash games aren't filled with other grinders and actually have enough dead money playing to outpace the fees.

For tournaments it's probably easier to be profitable if you're a good player, but that's generally how tournament play works anywhere... this place just tacks on another cost to your entry fee as a membership fee, making a $50 buyin be a $50+15 buyin, same as a T$ entry anywhere.

Obviously it's probably fine if you just want to go for a lark once in a while when you want to play live cards and don't want to drive infinity for a real casino or play in an illegal backroom game
