The Final Day

28 February 2010

I woke up earlier than expected and got right to work. A few MTTs and 20 SNGs? Sure. Unfortunately I’ve since busted out of the MTTs except for the $3.30R and I’m holding on for dear life — not even sure I’ll survive by the end of this blog post. Despite the lack of success […]

The Question

So if I get over $10k and drop back below it, does it count? I’m not sure. On one hand, if that happens I *did* make $10,000. However, I suppose the idea was for me to net that money, not simply reach the mark and lose some afterward. Imagine if a close friend excitedly told […]

The Fall

Yesterday was a complete waste. On the heels of that horrific set from two nights ago, I woke up late and only played one set. Instead of focusing on the task at hand, I allowed myself to get sidetracked and spent my night out downtown. I’m normally not this hard on myself for letting my […]

The Blue Screen of Death

I ended up playing one more set last night. Seemed like it went horribly but I somehow escaped with a $20 profit. Love those. It’s an amazing feeling to run poorly and still make a little bit of money — because you know that eventually, the cards will fall the right way and when they […]

The Push

I should probably put in one more set of games. It’s 3 AM, I’m a bit tired, but that’s the price I pay for only playing 60 games before midnight. I did sleep in until 1 PM today and I pounded an energy drink less than a half hour ago, so I should be fine […]

The New Record

I set my record for most blogs in a month. Not sure if I should be proud or look over my shoulder for the impending intervention. *It’s okay guys, I swear I still do other things!* Until I can put together a 500 game stretch with the red line at a 30 or so degree […]

The Last Week

I shook off the doubt and jumped into some games today. And the results? Well, let’s not get ahead of ourselves. I didn’t set the world on fire, but both the red line and green lines were positive. One day at a time. Unfortunately, I do need to press on and finish strong over the […]

The Hesitation

I’ve spent the last ten minutes trying to get up the courage to load a set of $16s. And to think, a few days ago you couldn’t keep me away from the games. Well, what happened? My red line went down. Yes, it’s official. I’m obsessed with my HEM line. I derive way too much […]

The Lucky Day

There’s a lot of good news today. I put in 200 games and made a small profit. Not too much, but I’m happy to have booked a winning day — because I should have lost. As you can see, I was *supposed* to lose somewhere around $80 today. Why? I’m not particularly sure. I don’t […]

The Bluff

I woke up way too early this morning and couldn’t go back to sleep. I tried. I tossed and turned for the better part of an hour. Heard my roommate wake up, get ready for work, and close the front door behind him. Eventually I threw in the proverbial towel and got out of bed. […]
