I’m a little behind on getting things posted on here. Congrats to Mike_Maloney on winning his 2nd Mookie title and a seat into the BBT2 TOC. Here is his profile (You can read his first profile here.)…

Q: Name your Top Ten poker blogs.
MM: In no particular order…
RecessRampage – Alan’s a cool guy, and I like his analysis on hands he comes across in cash games. We have many conversations about how he’s a tournament donk and I’m a cash donk, it’s fun times.
AlCantHang – You will never find a more creative and enjoyable alcohol-fueled blog than that of Mr. CantHang. Al’s posts are always entertaining, and of course there’s the #1 reason to visit his blog, and those would be the breasts of many a girl from the great expanse known as the Internet.
Hoyazo – You need a way to waste time at work? Read Hoy’s blog. I think average reading time for one of his posts is about 3 hours, 23 minutes. Hoy’s always a great resource for poker discussion, and even if you don’t come for the discussion, at least come for the rants. Since Hoy is the unluckiest man in poker, and never gets any cards, any time he actually gets good cards he gets sucked out on, and you will always hear about it on his blog. Definitely always some good rants from Hoy on any given day.
Fuel – He doesn’t write as much as he should, because everyone could learn a thing or two from him, but his hand histories are always entertaining to read, and probably my favorites from anyone’s blog.
Meekie – He’s the best guy to read if you want to learn how to play weak-tight and fold to the money.
Cracknaces – When Chad isn’t creating e-drama with his tilt-inducing girlie chat, his posts can actually be very insightful and informative. I know I have adjusted my MTT strategy on more than one occasion based on something he had to say in his blog. Of course, he supposedly quit blogging, but you may still be able to see the occasional post from him…
LJ – Always fun to read about LJ’s newest suckout story…well, unless it was against you, I suppose.
Drizz – Okay, so he doesn’t always like to spend a ton of time writing about poker, but his posts are always entertaining. Plus, I feel bad for him since he’s a Vikings fan, so I figured his blog could use a plug.
Miami Don – The resident professional gambler/blogger. He knows his stuff, so listen to his picks. And if you don’t gamble, at least read so he can tell you how bad all the bloggers are at playing poker.
Waffles – Fine, I’ll put Waffles on here. Waffles is offensive and temperamental. There’s about a 95% chance he will insult someone in every one of his blog posts. Is there drama going on in the world of the bloggers? It’s probably this guy’s fault. Oh, he plays poker sometimes, too. (Not well, though, don’t let him fool you)
I’m sure there are others I should have included instead of Waffles. Oh well.
Q: What was your worst reaction to a bad beat? (Submitted by dnasty13)
MM: One time I threw my bowling ball out the window of my apartment and it landed on the windshield of a car down below.
Actually, I don’t really have any good stories. Bad beats don’t phase me too much, I get more upset when I do something stupid to get bounced from a tournament. Sorry, I guess that’s pretty lame.
