Little Venting and Some Good News
Blinds are $500-$1000, I've got about 15,000 in chips. Player UTG (Under the Gun) limps with A-5, mid position player limps with 10-J, I raise to $6000. Both players call. WTF!
Flop comes A-6-3 rainbow. Check, check, all-in for 15,000. I of course am pissed that an ace fell and sure as hell knew that one of these assholes was playing a shitty ace.
I fold and the other player with the weak ace calls. Holy cow! What horrible play. I'm not out yet, but saw some horrible play after that. People limp calling all-ins with bad hands. Wow!
Okay, enough of that. I end up short stacked having to call one of these terrible players heads up with Q-3. Needless to say, they actually have a hand, K-K, and I'm done in 14th place. A wopping $20 and change. Make $9 for all that hard work. Limper with A-5, ends up winning.
If I played that hand wrong, let me know.
ALL RIGHT! For the good news. Stacks Poker is beginning BETA Testing. This means that we will get a look at the new 3D graphics soon. Register through my site and you will get 100% deposit bonus when you first deposit, up to $100. I can't wait. They are giving away a ton of free money. All you have to do is play for free and tell them where the bugs are. It's a great deal.

This added bonus to playing is available at certain sites. I would highly recommend doing this to increase your winnings, or decrease your losses. Everybody gets a bad run of cards sometimes.
Last week, ever pair over pair I had caught a set. 7s against JJ, 10s against QQ, 3s against AA. Everybody also hit ever one of their draws on me and I couldn't catch one. It was one of those days. Lost $300 in about an hour playing 3-6 and 5-10. Cashed out some money and am trying to work my way back up.
I haven't done well in the live games either. I'm still up, but am feeling a little beat up on poker. I think I'm going to take a week off when school starts next week. Don't have many classes, but might just give myself a refresher. Sometimes it's necessary to regain focus.
Let me know how everybody else is doing. My buddy is up $100 on Absolute and he's getting a few bucks back with rakeback. Start small and move up. Don't jump in playing 3-6 right away.
I began with $100. I cleared my $200 bonus playing 1/2 and some 2/4 and had around $600. I moved up to 2-4 exclusively. I began to see that the 3/6 games were easy so I played some 3/6 with my 2/4. Kept winning. Now, I'm back at square one. Payed some bills and am going to get my stack up again. Easy games everywhere, especially at Absolute.

Update and Rakeback
I am going to be playing at 2 sites for a little while, trying to do a $330 bonus chase at Full Contact Poker. I'll start at 1/2 and move up when my bankroll at the site gets bigger. Playing right now and players seem like a good mix of good and bad. Shorthanded is where it's at though. I have better luck there.
I have money in 3 sites right now: Poker Champs, Absoute Poker, and Full Contact Poker. I play at them for different reasons.
- Poker Champs is quick and easy. I don't have to think much because I play low limits there, I'm talking small buy in tourneys, .25/.50 and .50/1 limit, and .10/.20 NL. Not too many players, but good value on tourneys. They are also some of the worst players on the net. I play here when I want to take it easy and not worry too much. Won a $3 buy in tourney there yesterday and banked $45. They offer rakeback to all of their players. Use POKERGUMBY when you sign up and we both win.
- Absolute Poker offers more availability at middle limits like 2/4, 3/6, and 5/10. They also are very fishy with easy players. I also get rakeback there which allows me to get money back and keep the bankroll growing. I also offer rakeback if you sign up through my site. 20% after you reach $50.
- Full Contact Poker is new and should be fishy for a little while. The bonus I received is higher because I posted on Daniel Negreanu's forum before his site went public. Just bonus chasing right now, but already up $76 after an hour and a half. Not too bad.

I play mostly 2/4 now and sometimes 3/6 (only when I can find bad players). I crushed a 3/6 game last night for around $120, in about 45 minutes. It helped that I flopped a set of 4s with an ace on board, $100 pot.
I also won a $10 3 table sit 'n go a few days ago. $108 for first. I recommend these tourneys because they don't take as long as the big multi-tables, but can prepare you for them, unlike the single table sit 'n gos.
Right now Absolute has a good deposit bonus, not as good as last month's, but still okay. 100% bonus, up to $300. If you have the money, it's actually better. Use the link on the right.
