Sorry for the lack of content recently. It’s been a difficult few weeks for my family and I.

I’ve actually been somewhat sick and out of it lately. I really wish that was the only bad news I have, but it isn’t.

Roughly 3-4 weeks ago, my Uncle John (my mother’s brother) was diagnosed with Leukemia. He was given 50% chance to live a year. News like this always hits hard, but John and our family seemed optimistic. About a week later, I visited him at the hospital to drop off some DVD’s and talk. He seemed to be doing alright, and I was fortunate to have a nice hour-long, “heart to heart” talk with John.

About a week after I had talked to John, I got a call from my mom informing me that John wasn’t doing well at all. His condition was rapidly worsening, and I’m deeply saddened to say that he’s no longer with us. My Uncle John (I believe 56 years old, I’ll fix later if wrong) passed away on Friday night. He will be severely missed.

I can only hope to be as good of an uncle to my niece, Anna (who’s turning 1 next month), as John was to me. She’ll be hearing stories all about my Uncle John =)


I played a session of tournaments for the first time in a couple of weeks today, and despite not going deep in anything major, I felt great about most of the decisions I was making.

There’s a small TS series coming up from the 5th-11th in May, and depending on how I feel I might make the trip. TS is kind of mehhh, but I haven’t played a live tournament in awhile. I’ll probably decide about 2 days before it starts, haha.

Kind of a depressing blog, eh?

Thanks for reading anyways. Hope everyone’s doing well,

Just So You Know

World Series of Poker Europe is airing in Australia and some parts of Europe. Anyways, the episodes are available on Pokertube - which also has my EPT coverage, for those of you that missed that.

Here's a link to all of the WSOPE videos . If you're just looking for me, I'm on Episode 4, parts 1/4, 2/4 and 4/4.

While your there, check out my EPT Barcelona coverage if you haven't already. To get there, just click "EPT Season 4" on the right under "TV Poker Shows." I forget which exact episodes I'm in, but I bust out during Episode 3 part 1, so most of my hands are during episodes 1 and 2.

Oh, and for the record, my last name is pronounced just as it appears. Not "Younglen." It's Junglen....with the letter "Jay." Is it really that hard?
