I haven’t showered yet today. And because of the time, I don’t plan on touching soap until sometime tomorrow morning. Yes, I feel dirty. But it’s less because of the missed shower and more due to running horribly today. Each set was more infuriating than the one before it. I can’t think of any particularly […]

The New Computer

On Wednesday, my laptop arrived. On Friday, I mailed it back. Unfortunately, the resolution simply couldn’t handle 30-tables without significant overlap. And if it can’t do that, what good is it to me? I didn’t waste much time in replacing it. As of yesterday, I am the proud owner of a new desktop computer. For […]

I think an update is necessary. After the last set on Thursday went so poorly, I visited friends in LA and headed home on Sunday night. On Monday morning, I got back to work. Since then? 165 games, 24% ROI, +$641 Obviously I’m not proud of the low volume, but consider how this month started, […]

The Last Set

My internet may be installed, but not all is back to normal. Since I playing on my laptop, I can’t 30-table. Bah. Today I experimented with smaller sets of 12, 15, and 18 games. I eventually worked up to 22 games, but it’s not nearly as fun on a 15 inch screen. This problem can […]

No games today. I’m still in the process of moving things over to the new place, so I assume the “not playing” trend will continue. However, I should be spending a good amount of time at the new apartment after internet and cable were installed today. Hooray! Now I’m only a bed, couch, table, and […]

All things considered, today wasn’t half bad. Coaching went extremely well, I shuttled most of the small items to my new place, and managed to fit in two sets (75 games). Set 1: +$227Set 2: -$33.5 I’m happy with both, as the second set began very poorly and sometimes salvaging a rough session feels better […]

Right after last night’s entry, I tried to go to bed. Unfortunately, I was still feeling the effects of the energy drink so I was forced to toss and turn for a bit before finally catching some shut eye. When I woke up this morning (err, afternoon), I had transformed back into Bruce Banner. The […]

Running into the tops of ranges is fun! A word of warning, the tone of this blog entry might be a tad angrier than the others. I. Am. Steaming. I don’t think I’ve ever actually been this upset when blogging. Even when I’m complaining about a bad run, I’m usually able to put it in […]

One third of the month is over and I am in the midst of “volume fail.” 640 games is a far cry from where I’d like to be — the fact that I’m in the red isn’t fun, either. Unlike previous months where I’ve simply frittered the time away, I’ve spent the first ten days […]

Someone called me an asshole again today. Another regular. Sigh. We were four handed and as the chip leader, I was abusing the bubble when an interesting spot came up. 300/600 blinds UTG (Reg): 2400Button (Random, but decent): 2700SB (Me): 6500BB (Loose random): 2000 UTG and Button fold, I’m staring at 32 off suit. Well, […]
