Foucault - FTW!

The longer you play, the better chance the better player has of winning – Jack Nicklaus

A fellow poker blogger (and philosopher) is making another deep run in the Worlds Series of Poker, Main Event. In case you haven’t heard of him yet, please allow me to introduce Foucault, the blogger, the man.
He is a regular contributor at Poker Saavy and 2+2 Magazine. He also posts on 2+2 forums. On his blog, he has written some insightful book reviews and also has a lot of great content.

He finished the 2008 WSOP Main Event in 35th.  I wrote about it here.

This guy is smart and sick, yet disarmingly unassuming - a classy guy in every respect. His low key manner but aggressive style remind me of another guy with those characteristics - Allen Cunningham.

I have followed Foucault’s blog for years now and I would hate to have him at my table.

It’s time for a poker blogger to win it all. Good luck, my friend!

UPDATE:  He finished in 87th for a very nice cash.  Congratulations, Foucault!

Just saw your post here, hey top 100 ain't bad. So you are only posting once every 3 months now?!

Anyways thanks for the feedback I replied to your comment. I'm thinking about going back to full buy in (just wrote a post on it), let me know what you think.

It's going to suck because I just got to a point where I could probably be making enough going forward in the long run with rake-back. However, I still think dropping to full buy in will be best in the long run. People told me this plenty 4 months ago, but I'm stubborn and have to learn myself.

Also a Foucault fan, and was glad to see him make another deep ME run.

Wasn't Jack Nicklaus a famous Auto Racing celeb?
