Dear 43 Things Users,

10 years after introducing 43 Things to the world, we have decided we have met our last goal: completing the incredible experience that has been 43 Things. Please join us in giving one last cheer to all the folks who have shared their goals with the world, as well as all the people who have worked at The Robot Co-op to build this incredible website. We won a Webby Award, published a book, and brought happiness to a lot of people.

Starting today, 43 Things users can export their goals and entries from the site. Starting August 15, we will make the site “read only”. 43 Things users will still be able to view the site and export their content, but we won’t be taking any new content from users. We hope to leave the site up for folks to see and download their content until the end of the year. Ending on New Year’s Eve takes us full circle.

It has been a long ride (one of our original goals was to "build a company that lasts at least 2 years” - we beat that one!) While we wish the site could live on, it has suffered from a number of challenges - changes in how people use the site, the advertising industry, and how search engines view the site. We wish the outcome was different – but we’ve always been realistic about when our goals are met and when they aren't.

As of today, you will be able to download your goals and entries. See more about that on the FAQ page. Thanks for 10 great years of goal-setting and achieving.

I played in Event 54 ($1,000 No Limit Holdem) of the WSOP on Sunday, July 1, 2012. A great experience, even though I busted out in level 5 after 5 hours of play. I never really got much going, though felt I played well. I made a couple good folds preflop, and made a couple good preflop 3 bets that worked out well. The tournament started with 3,000 chips (not deep stacked at all) and with 1 hour levels. Though the structure wasn’t great, there was some time to be patient, and the game seemed quite tight overall. With blinds at 100-200, I had about 2,400 in chips when a guy in mid position raised to 600, then a late position guy called. I had AK in big blind, so went all in. The first guy thought for a while then called with 77 (I had him covered), then the third guy overcalls call with KQ offsuit. Of course, a Q comes on the flop and the worse hand wins, knocking both of us out. I would have lost to the 77 heads up, so wasn’t too irritated. Too bad I didn’t take it down, as I would have had about 7500 in chips with room to play.

Now the fun part was I got to play at the same table as Barry Greenstein, on the second table I played at. I got chatting with him and he was a nice guy. One hand he raised in early position, and I called with pocket 10s. I was suspicious of Barry’s early position raise, as he was getting short stacked, and he has a tight reputation (especially given the situation and structure of this tournament). A guy in late position 3 bets, and then Barry goes all in. I managed a fold, and the other guy calls with QQ. Barry has KK.

The day before the WSOP event, I warmed up by playing a deep stack $100 NLH event at Binion’s. 50 players started, and I ended up chopping 6 ways at the final table – it was 2am and two of us had to get some rest for the WSOP event the next day. That finish paid $600, which nicely covered half my buy in for the WSOP event. I also won some money playing in cash side games during the trip.

All in all, a great experience! 2 years ago
