Bodog Ari

I'm Ari Engel and am also known as BodogAri online. I've played poker for a living for virtually my entire post-college life. In the last few years I have started teaching people my style and philosophy on poker tournaments. Many of them have done very well. If you are interested in getting my help, email:

Played some Live poker

tonight at the Crown Casino (10-20 Fixed) and got killed for about 8-900 Aussie dollars. It's a nice casino, and the pokerroom has been renovated since I was last down here. However, I never seem to do well there. Hmmm.

Came home at 1 or 2 local time, and I realized that Party and Stars 300's were starting. I went preety deep in both, but finished short, finishing approx 70'th in stars, and 20 something in party. Oh Well, tommorow.

The local papers here are ridiculously anti-Bush/America. It's almost comical that this stuff passes as news. Unfortunately, it appears like most of the world has to suffer through this. Self loathing makes me sick, and for some reason it seems, like that is one of the traits neccesary to graduate from journalism school.

My party DB #'s have gone through the roof, which probably means I'm playing too tight everywhere else. I'll do a little experimenting tommorow. Hope all of you have big sundays, and finish 2nd to me in all the majors.

Ari, I'm currently a senior in high school and I'm leaning towards a journalism degree. I've followed your blog for a couple months now and after reading this blog I saw you are studying journalism. I was wondering if you could give me some advice about it. What is it actually like? How competitive is it? Colleges? If you could email at I would be very grateful. Good luck at the tables.

Murf- It was a typo and has been changed to loathing.

Loki- Good luck in your search for journalists, u certainly seem to be on the right track...

Ari- It's not so much that I'm searching for journalists, I follow you online in poker as well as here. It was just coincidence you are in journalism. What I'm looking for is more journalism schools, etc., Not actual journalists.

On another note, what hold'em book would you reccommend the most?

check out twoplustwo and pocketfives, they'll provide u with better info than books. But u better work on your reading comprehensin first, I was ripping on J schools, that's it, never been in one, and no plans to ever. If in the future u enter the industry, please do not start hating the best country in the world. Yeh, I said it.

Thanks for the advice, I really do appreciate it. Hopefully I'll be joining you, and the rest of the elite poker community, at the higher stakes in the near future.

May the cards be with you.

ari i think saying that australians would prefer osama over bush is rediculous and i assume you wanted to make a point with such an example. I am an Australian, The Australian government tails Bush with their heads up his arse. I don't beleive that we hate America at all, your reading tabloid papers that write shit in a subjective manner to sell more. I think most Australians feel that Bush is a somewhat poor president, an idiot maybe but please dont make sweeping generalizations about who our country supports in the fight against terrorism.

In other news, well done on your number one ranking hope you keep up the good work.
