So this post is supposed to be about the SCOOP Poker Tournament. I am really excited about playing in the SCOOP Poker Tournament because this will be my first SCOOP and my first of any online poker tournament series. My game has been really improving and I hope that I can get a big score. Wish me luck.

Alright, so in order to comply with Pokerstars request. I have come up with my "own" argument why poker should be considered a game of skill rather than a game of luck:

Ladies and gentlemen of this supposed judging panel for Pokerstars, I have one final thing I want you to consider. Ladies and gentlemen, I want you to consider Chewbacca. Chewbacca is a Wookiee from the planet Kashyyk. But Chewbacca lives on the planet Endor. Now think about it; that does not make sense!
Why would a Wookiee, an eight-foot tall Wookiee, want to live on Endor, with a bunch of two-foot tall Ewoks? That does not make sense! But more importantly, you have to ask yourself: What does this have to do with why playing poker is clearly a game of skill? Nothing. Ladies and gentlemen, it has nothing to do with why playing poker is a game of skill! It does not make sense! Look at me. I'm defending poker, and I'm talkin' about Chewbacca! Does that make sense? Ladies and gentlemen, I am not making any sense! None of this makes sense! And so you have to remember, when you're in that Secret Pokerstars Judging room deliberating and conjugating the Emancipation Proclamation, does it make sense? No! Ladies and gentlemen of this supposed Pokerstars Judging committee, it does not make sense! If Chewbacca lives on Endor, you must see why playing poker is clearly a game of skill! I have explicitly proven to you the facts, which is why playing poker is clearly a game of skill! I rest my defense.

Week 7

This is going to be a short post. I continued doing research. I have been making steady progress with my reactions and I have improved some of the reaction schemes. I spend almost all my time trying to complete my reactions, so that is pretty much my week 7.

Week 6

I traveled to Shanghai this week. I really liked Shanghai, but I did not like the hot and humid weather. I went to The Shanghai Museum which had a lot of relics from various parts of China's history. I also walked around Shanghai and I saw the Pearl Tower and the two tallest buildings in Shanghai. I met one of my friends who was in Shanghai and she showed me the traditional Shanghai. I had some amazing traditional Shanghai dishes. One dish was a noodle soup that had raw egg dumped into the water, which was instantly cooked by the very hot water. I also had rice that was cooked inside of bamboo. I also went to the Shanghai Beach. The beach was one of the best parts of my trip. The water was warm and clean and the beach was clean. I had to pay to go inside the beach, but it was definitely worth it. The Shanghai beach was much better than the Qingdao beach that I had gone to. I also ate with some of my friend's friends. I went to my friend's friends parents house to have dinner. It was really fun and the food was great. I was really happy that I was able to eat dinner with them because everyone was so nice.

I also went to Hanzhou. Hanzhou was very pretty. It has a beautiful lake called West Lake. I spent most of the day at the lake, enjoying the mountains by the lake. I walked around the lake and enjoyed the beautiful weather. After enjoying the lake, I walked around the city with people from the program. We saw a Ferrari store and we went in and talked to the people inside. The signs said no touching and no pictures of the cars but we managed to convince the people to let us take a few pictures. I really liked Hanzhou. It was very pretty and relaxing.

I also did research during the week. I am still doing a ton of reactions and purifications. I am really enjoying the experience.
