Hey guys, There's so much I could write, but I'm not ready to write it yet. I have spent quite some time now in Croatia. It's a fucking beautiful country. This entry will purely be photographs of the beautiful Croatia. Along with a badass song for accompaniment. [video] The harbor in Split. Down a dark alleyway near the center of Split. An open-air salsa dance in the center of Split. The beach in…

Hey guys, As I'm writing this I've just arrived in Budapest, Hungary. It's a beautiful city, and over the next few days I'm going to be exploring it as much as I can. But the subject of this blog post is not going to be on my travels. Over the last couple of weeks I have been thinking quite a bit about my career as a poker player – what it is I've done that sticks with me as meaningful; what I can…

Hey all, I am now in the Czech Republic and have met up with some of my friends. It's been fun hanging out with them again, but the first few days in the Czech Republic by myself were pretty interesting. While I was in Cologne, I spent my nights in cheap hotels. I wandered around the city looking for hostels but couldn't find any, so I just settled on hotels. But as Prague is something of a touris…

It's taken me some days to write again since I've been pretty occupied while I was in Berlin. I stayed there with my good friend Fredrik Keitel (aka Fisheye, observer84), he was very generous with letting me stay on his couch and showing me the city. Berlin is a pretty cool place. Greener than just about any other city I've visited considering its size. It also has the strange habit of being quiet…

I've just now gotten internet access again since when I posted my last blog entry. Cologne is an interesting and beautiful city (although I've met a few locals who seem to think it's a boring place… but I guess that's true of everywhere to the people who are used to it). I visited the Dom cathedral, the Roman-Rhineland Museum, and walked along the Rhine river for several miles. My feet hurt like h…

I've been having these recurring dreams lately. In these dreams I am a child again, and I am causing trouble against authority figures for no real reason. I've never been a big fan of dream analysis, but it's been on my mind. Maybe it's my psyche trying to tell me that this little exodus, this attempt to rebel against what by now is my nature, is pointless and childlike. Maybe it's telling me that…

My travels have begun. The day before yesterday I took the Eurostar (underground train) from London into Paris. I've never been on such a train before. I watched the landscape of the rural north of France rushing by outside the window. There is something very beautiful and nostalgic to me about riding in a train or a bus. It's hard to put my finger on it exactly, but something about staring out of…

I just wanted to mention and link this here, because I think it's responsible to do so. This will be my last time engaging the poker world. From my previous blog: At this point, all of the truths have come to light. I am only updating this blog so that everything is in one place. For those of you who have not read it, I have come forward on HSNL and told the entire story of the Girah scandal. Si…

I've finally gotten a full night's sleep again. The night after I posted my last blog entry, my mind was restless thinking about all of the hatred that people would have for me.  Jungle went out to meet up with some fellow high stakes players who also wanted to see me and grab dinner together, but I told them that I wasn't feeling well. I kept waking up in the middle of the night, only to roll ove…

This is a post. I will write more when more stuff happens. I don't know my plans yet or where I am going to go, but for those of you who wish to contact or meet me, I am reachable at haseebonroad at gmail dot com. Once I decide what exactly my plans are, I will write more. Right now the first thing I could use is tips on backpacking. I am reading what I can find and getting in touch with friends w…
