New Look

Couple things. I've updated the look of my blog and feel that it is easier to read. I like it. Give me some feedback on it.

I played in a $2 buy-in tourney last night on Absolute Poker, just looking to kill some time. What I did was kill the competition. 275 entrants, $125 for first. Not too bad for such a little investment. I was middle stack most of the way. Worked myself up to second in chips. Back to middle of the road at final table, then I limped with AA utg (under the gun). One caller, then the BB raises, I push all in. Limper folds, BB calls. Pocket 8s. I survive a little longer.

Started heads up, 3-1 ahead on chips. That didn't last. Played HU for about 20 minutes. Tight play and we both got lucky at points. Great hand when I flop the nuts with J-9 os. I check, he checks. Turn 7 pairs the board. I bet. He raises. Sweet, he's got a 7. I go all in and he calls quick. Board doesn't pair and get big lead.

Last hand blinds were big and I raise enough to pot commit. He's got JJ. I catch a straight on the river with K-5 os. HEHE! Sometimes it pays to get lucky. Overall, I played well and got lucky when I needed to. I was only an underdog in hands when I played HU. Not too shabby!

Lastly, if anybody signs up through me and plays 100 raked hands of .50/1 or higher at Absolute, I will send you 2 decks of playing cards free. I pay the shipping. You will also get the famous rakeback. E-mail me with any questions.

Good Luck,

Goals for the Month

I am beginning to set my goals for the month of May. It's going to be a busy one.
  1. Graduate and then make it to the ceremony (best friend's bachelor party the night before, 2 states away)
  2. Finish class project so I CAN graduate
  3. Find another job to support myself (poker doesn't count) which will probably be another bartending job
  4. Begin work on my portfolio
  5. Play more poker and more importantly BETTER poker to make some moolah
  6. Go the gym to get a summer body, not winter luggage
  7. Watch more Cubs' games

I'll let you know how each of these went or are going. Shit, just got knocked out of tourney with Aces. I raised the hand before UTG with A-Qos and stole the blinds uncontested. Next hand UTG raises to $180 (blinds 30/60) and I re-raise to $385. I have about 1K left and he moves all-in quickly with 9s, I call fast. The fucker flops a set.

Just a $1 two-table sit 'n go, but I'm still pissed after I played so well, laying down a shit ton of hands when I knew I was beat and getting short-stacked. Then getting some back and this jagweed decides his 9s are good. Added to the list, take the few dollars I have in my sites and turn them into $100 at each site. I got $10 free from Absolute. I got $50 free from Pokershare. $10 free from Royal Vegas Poker. Lastly, I still have a few bucks in Full Contact Poker and Poker Champs.

I guess I'll be playing an enormous amount of low buy in tourneys and ring games. We'll see how that turns out.

Good Luck at the tables,
